I’ve been nominated by Mia Grizzle who blogs at The Grizzle Grist Mill for the 3 Quotes, 3 Days Challenge. Thank you very much Mia. I enjoy Mia’s writing and her variety of posts. Stop by and check out her site. The Challenge sounds like fun, and a great way to contribute to the WordPress Community. The Challenge: Post three quotes and nominate three people a day to the challenge, for three days.
Today, from across the pond, I have three quotes out of the many wonderful words and works of C.S. Lewis. Well known for The Chronicles of Narnia, Mr. Lewis also wrote some incredible books that explained the Christianity in a simple, straight-forward manner. According to Wikipedia, “Charles Colson‘s conversion to Christianity resulted from his reading [Mere Christianity], as did the conversions of Francis Collins, Jonathan Aitken, Josh Caterer and the philosopher C. E. M. Joad.
I hope you enjoy these three from C.S. Lewis:
Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.
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.
Try to say the very thing you really mean, the whole of it, nothing more or less or other than what you really mean. That is the whole art and joy of words.
And the nominees for Day Two are:
