(About Eternity, Past, Present)

The Future is, of all things, the thing least like eternity. It is the most temporal part of time--for the Past is frozen and no longer flows, and the Present is all lit up with eternal rays.

("The Screwtape Letters")


More Quotes from C.S. Lewis:


It may well be that by trickery of priests men have sometimes taken a mortal's voice for a god's. But it will not work the other way. No one who hears a god's voice takes it for a mans.
C.S. Lewis

We're free Narnians, Hwin and I, and I suppose, if you're running away to Narnia you want to be one too. In that case Hwin isn't your horse any longer. One might just as well say you're her human.
C.S. Lewis

For you will certainly carry out God's purpose, however you act, but it makes a difference to you whether you serve like Judas or like John.
C.S. Lewis

Pooh! Grown-ups are always thinking of uninteresting explanations.
C.S. Lewis

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
C.S. Lewis

Whatever you do, He will make good of it. But not the good He had prepared for you if you had obeyed him.
C.S. Lewis
