Illustrations & Quotations: A bit of C.S. Lewis from Oxford

“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.” ― C.S. Lewis

I'm back! Well, I should say I'm settled, and have finished three first essays, and been inducted into more libraries than I can visit in a year. Friends, I can now say I'm really living in Oxford. Which means, I have a weekly schedule at last. Which means, I can finally write.

So this is my swift Saturday hello to say that the Tuesday posts and everything else will begin in earnest next week. But since I'm in the town of my dear old favorite don, C.S. Lewis, and have studied his work this week, I thought I'd toss a few quotes of his your away. Along with a couple of illustrations made by the matchless Pauline Baynes, official and original illustrator of The Chronicles of Narnia.

May your autumn Saturday be blustery and bookish and lovely. Until Tuesday, adieu!

“A children's story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children's story in the slightest.” 

― C.S. Lewis

“No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally – and often far more – worth reading at the age of fifty and beyond.” 

― C.S. Lewis

“I can't imagine a man really enjoying a book and reading it only once.” ― C.S. Lewis
