C.S. LEWIS QUOTES ABOUT DEATH

“To die will be an awfully big adventure.”

“Death is the great equalizer. It comes for us all, regardless of wealth, status, or fame.”

“Death is not the greatest tragedy in life. The greatest tragedy is what dies inside us while we live.”

“Perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage.”

“Death does not have the final say. Love and goodness endure beyond the grave.”

“What seems to us bitter trials are often blessings in disguise.”

“Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.”

“Death is not extinguishing the light; it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come.”

“We are not necessarily doubting that God will do the best for us; we are wondering how painful the best will turn out to be.”

“One day, you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.”

“God allows us to experience the low points of life in order to teach us lessons we could not learn in any other way.”

“To love is to be vulnerable.”

“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.”

“Do not let your happiness depend on something you may lose.”

“There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.”

“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.”

“A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell.”
