Parenting Tales, Points to Ponder

My Favorite Narnia Quotes

I am happy to announce that our family is almost done reading through the Chronicles of Narnia series.

We began this winter and try to read about a chapter a night. Granted, there are many evenings during the school year where this didn’t suit, so we could have finished much faster. However, we try as much as possible to stick to this as part of our nightly routine. Believe me, these kids would remind me if I forgot to break out the Narnia book of the moment! They absolutely love them.

I didn’t actually read this series myself until I was in college and I could have smacked myself for not reading it sooner.

It is an absolute treasure! I was blown away by the genius of C.S. Lewis and love all the correlations and symbolism between the book series and the Bible. What has made me proud as anything is hearing my own kids put together things from the books and the Word.

Not surprisingly, I didn’t let them watch the movies that go along with them until after we had gotten through that particular book. However, I think the movie series was pretty well done and enjoyed them too. (Confession: I get teary eyed every time the kids have to leave Narnia at the end. Every. Single. Time.)

So, in celebration of our almost completing the series, I put together a little list of some of my favorite quotes from this remarkable series. They are in no particular order at all, just random. Each one spoke to me in some way–as I mentioned, C.S. Lewis was very gifted and has a special way of expressing truths. Hope you enjoy!

"You would not have been calling to Me unless I had been calling to you."

You wished yourself away, and with it much more . . . You doubt your value. Don't run from who you are.

For what you see an hear depends a good deal on where you are standing: it also depends on what sort of person you are.  -- C.S. Lewis, The Magician's Nephew

Since it is so likely children will meet cruel enemies... #quotes #authors #writers

Forever Narnia- Forever Heaven. With Him for eternity. That was C.S. Lewis' best description of it..

This is why CS Lewis and Tolkien were friends... they saw the same Truth.

Aslan print for baby girls room (MAKE ONE!) Love it.


One of the best Narnia quotes. It comes from The Silver Chair. And Puddleglum says it!

Aslan, Chronicles of Narnia. I read that in Liam Neesons voice.

C.S. Lewis is a genius, and all Chronicles of Narnia books are excellent. If this profound and thought-provoking quote doesn't convince you, nothing will.

I learn more from fictional characters than real people.

I just love this...I would love to find a plack or something that has this quote and hang it on my wall!

“Welcome, Prince,” said Aslan. “Do you feel yourself sufficient to take up the Kingship of Narnia?”
“I – I don’t think I do, Sir,” said Caspian. “I’m only a kid.”
“Good,” said Aslan. “If you had felt yourself sufficient, it would have been a proof that you were not…”
Prince Caspian – Chapter 15

If you have any recommendations for a new series for us, I would love to hear them!
