I was looking through old daily attitude emails and found one where I shared a bunch of CS Lewis quotes.
Here they are again, sure to be something in this list to get you thinking today.
Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and durable happiness there is in our lives.
Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art… It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.
Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.
We all want progress, but if you’re on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.
Has this world been so kind to you that you should leave with regret? There are better things ahead than any we leave behind.
Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.
It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.
Experience: that most brutal of teachers. But you learn, my God do you learn.
Miracles are a retelling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see.
Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less.
Nothing that you have not given away will ever be really yours.
What saves a man is to take a step. Then another step.
Make it a great day.
