Quotes: C. S. Lewis
"I wrote the books I should have liked to read, if only I could have got them. That's always been my reason for writing."
— quoted in the preface of the 1956 edition of Till We Have Faces

“Critics who treat ‘adult’ as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”

"It might be."
— His answer to his step-son's question on if his wardrobe was THE wardrobe.
