Since It Is So Likely... Another Gem from C.S. Lewis

One of my favourite authors is C. S. Lewis. I devoured all the Narnia series when I was little, but I've also enjoyed his books for adults such as 'That Hideous Strength'. Some of my most remembered quotes come from this deep thinking man.... not least this one.


As a teacher of primary children, I've always firmly believed that one of the best ways to teach morals and lessons is to get them engaged in, and enjoying good, classic literature. The stories I immersed myself in as a child for hours on end, shaped and moulded part of the person I am today. I learned many things amongst the pages written by great authors, and continue to do so.

Books helped me grow a backbone and develop my brain!

PS: The full quote is...

“Since it is so likely that (children) will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage. Otherwise you are making their destiny not brighter but darker.”

C.S. Lewis

  1. Great quote Linda ... thanks for sharing. Like you I learn (and continue to learn) so much from great books and wonderful authors. Reading is so very important, and I'm so glad to have discovered the joy of reading from a very early age. :)

  2. I have a tendency of being suspicious of people who don't read. Whenever I go into someone's house and I don't see at least a couple of books, or at leas a few decent magazines...I run in the opposite direction. Years ago I dumped a guy because he won't a reader. It was like we were talking two different languages. i should probably go and try to find my new boyfriend n Goodreads, he he...

    1. Lol Bobbi.... I think I'm a little bit suspicious of them too!! Goodreads sounds like a far better place than facebook to look for similar people!!! I've always had trouble going out with people who don't 'get' books as well.
