Quote: Those Who Still Enjoy Fairy Tales

A lovely quote from the ever quotable C.S. Lewis for those of us who still enjoy fairy tales. I sincerely hope that’s you.

“You and I who still enjoy fairy tales have less reason to wish actual childhood back. We have kept its pleasures and added some grown-up ones as well.”

– C.S. Lewis Letters to an American Lady

    Awesome quote! C.S. Lewis is very quoteable, and has much wisdom about fairytales. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll never be too old for fairytales! I’m always glad to hear of other people who agree. ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, lovely picture quote! Did you make it or find it somewhere or…? Just curious. ๐Ÿ˜€

      Yes, Lewis is so full of wisdom. And yes, I made this little graphic. It’s sort of a hobby of mine, taking quotes and finding beautiful images to go along with them.

    I haven’t heard that quote by CS Lewis before! I like the way he thought. If I had a TARDIS, I would totally just go back to England in the 1930s just so I could go to the Inklings meetings and be best buddies with CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I know, right? Oh to have been a fly on the wall at some of those meetings. But I do hope the spirit of their writing lives on in the work we are involved in. A high bar, perhaps, but worth shooting for.
