Alexandra’s Recent Updates

Alexandra liked a quote
The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis
“I now see that I spent most of my life in doing neither what I ought nor what I liked.”
C.S. Lewis
Alexandra liked a quote
The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis
“Nothing is very strong: strong enough to steal away a man's best years not in sweet sins but in a dreary flickering of the mind over it knows not what and knows not why, in the gratification of curiosities so feeble that the man is only half aware of them, in drumming of fingers and kicking of heels, in whistling tunes that he does not like, or in the long, dim labyrinth of reveries that have not even lust or ambition to give them a relish, but which, once chance association has started them, the creature is took weak and fuddled to shake off.”
C.S. Lewis
Alexandra liked a quote
The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis
“There is nothing like suspense and anxiety for barricading a human's mind against the Enemy. He wants men to be concerned with what they do; our business is to keep them thinking about what will happen to them.”
C.S. Lewis

More of Alexandra's books…
Ernest Hemingway
“There is no reason why because it is dark you should look at things differently from when it is light.”
Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises

E.M. Forster
“Depressed at her isolation, she saw not only houses and furniture, but the vessel of life slipping past her, with people like Evie and Mr. Cahill on board.”
E.M. Forster

Virginia Woolf
“Orlando naturally loved solitary places, vast views, and to feel himself for ever and ever and ever alone.”
Virginia Woolf, Orlando

Ernest Hemingway
“She was looking into my eyes with that way she had of looking that made you wonder whether she really saw out of her own eyes. They would look on and on after every one else's eyes in the world would have stopped looking. She looked as though there were nothing on earth she would not look at like that, and really she was afraid of so many things.”
Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises

C.S. Lewis
“You could send your soul after the good you had expected, instead of turning it to the good you had got. You could refuse the real good; you could make the real fruit taste insipid by thinking of the other.”
C.S. Lewis, Perelandra
