Managing Monday with C.S.Lewis – Take 4

Posted by on Nov 28, 2016 in Blog | 0 comments

C.S.Lewis is one of the most oft quoted people. His insights are pithy and effortlessly and clearly get to the heart of each matter he addresses. A few weeks ago I posted on C.S.Lewis as apologist, and so it seemed appropriate to follow up with some of his wisdom in selected quotes for Managing Monday. This is the last of this short seriesĀ from Lewis (well, for a while…)

  • In our own case we accept excuses too easily; in other people’s, we do not accept them easily enough (from The Weight of Glory)
  • If God forgives us we must forgive ourselves otherwise its like setting up ourselves as a higher tribunal than him (from Collected Letters of C.S.Lewis)
  • We may ignore, but we can nowhere evade, the presence of God. The world is crowded with him. He walks everywhere incognito (from Letters to Malcolm)
  • Free will, though it makes evil possible, is also the only thing that makes possible any love or goodness or joy worth having (from Mere Christianity)
  • Everyone says forgiveness is a lovely idea, until they have something to forgive (from Mere Christianity)
  • Once in our world, a stable had something in it that was bigger than our whole world (from The Last Battle)

Nice chatting…
