Surprised by Joy snapshots

Favorite quotations–all from Surprised by Joy by C. S. Lewis

“I had always the same certainty of finding a book that was new to me as a man who walks into a field has of finding a new blade of grass.”

“Take in what is there and give no thought to what might have been there or what is somewhere else.”

“Really, a young Atheist cannot guard his faith too carefully.”

“And so the great Angler played His fish and I never dreamed that the hook was in my tongue.”

“The hardness of God is kinder than the softness of men, and His compulsion is our liberation.”

“I was living almost entirely in my imagination; or at least the imaginative experience of those years now seems to me more important than anything else.”
