Quotes Margo Liked

C.S. Lewis
“Aren't all these notes the senseless writings of a man who won't accept the fact that there is nothing we can do with suffering except to suffer it?”
C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed

C.S. Lewis
“I thought I could describe a state; make a map of sorrow. Sorrow, hoever, turns out to be not a state but a process.”
C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed

C.S. Lewis
“God has not been trying an experiment on my faith or love in order to find out their quality. He knew it already. It was I who didn't. In this trial He makes us occupy the dock, the witness box, and the bench all at once. He always knew that my temple was a house of cards. His only way of making me realize the fact was to knock it down.”
C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed

C.S. Lewis
“Feelings, and feelings, and feelings. Let me try thinking instead.”
C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed

C.S. Lewis
“My idea of God is not a divine idea. It has to be shattered time after time. He shatters it Himself.”
C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed
