5 Quotes from C.S. Lewis for Summer

You don't really want a big post to read now that the summer's begun, so I'm providing a "sampler" -- a light summer dish as food for thought. All of these ruminations are from someplace in C.S. Lewis' writing. Happy snacking, happy chewing!
  1. "Atheism turns out to be too simple. If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found out that it has no meaning..."
  2. "God is no fonder of intellectual slackers than He is of any other slacker."
  3. "All that we call human history--money, poverty, ambition, war, prostitution, classes, empires, slavery--[is] the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy."
  4. "There is but one good; that is God. Everything else is good when it looks to Him and bad when it turns from Him."
  5. "Love may forgive all infirmities and love still in spite of them: but Love cannot cease to will their removal."
