cs lewis: a repost

i was recently brought back to these quotes that i had of cs lewis from a previous post. because of life, they feel much more important to me today:

“I think we delight to praise what we enjoy because the praise not merely expresses but completes the enjoyment; it is its appointed consummation.”
–Reflections on the Psalms

“The Psalmists in telling everyone to praise God are doing what all men do when they speak of what they care about.”
–Reflections on the Psalms

“Nothing is yet in its true form.”
–Till We Have Faces

“If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.”
–Mere Christianity

“All joy…emphasizes our pilgrim status; always reminds, beckons, awakens desire. Our best havings are wantings.”
–from an unknown letter

“Until you have given up your self to Him you will not have a real self…”
–Mere Christianity

“Poetry too is a little incarnation, giving body to what had been before invisible and inaudible.”
–Reflections on the Psalms

“‘Nothing, not even what is lowest and most bestial, will not be raised again if it submits to death.’”
–The Great Divorce

my summation of vancouver is coming soon.
