If anyone comes across a good quote or something that a charater said, post it here. Here's my first one that I like a lot:

SPOILER WARNING: This thread will contain many quotes possibly spoiling a book that you haven't read yet.









"No great wisdom can be reached without sacrifice." - Uncle Andrew (from The Magician's Nephew)

Make your choice, adventurous Stranger;
Strike the bell and bide the danger,
Or wonder, till it drives you mad,
What would have followed if you had.


Found in The Magician's Nephew written on the "Enchanted Square Pillar"

"Magic," whispered Digory. "Can't you feel it?"

My favorite quote is from Puddleglum in the Silver Chair:

"We're just babies making up a game, if you're right. But four babies playing a game can make a play-world that licks your real world hollow. That's why I'm going to stand by the play world. I'm on Aslan's side even if there isn't any Aslan to lead it. I'm going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if ther isn't any Narnia. ...We'll be leaving your court at once and setting out in the dark to spend our lives looking for the Overland. Not that out lives will be very long, I should think; but that's a small loss if the world's as dull a place as you say."

When the world seems hopeless, this cheers me up a bit.

I don't know if this is my favorite quote, but it is a good one from MN.

"I'm sure Aslan would have, if you'd asked him," said Fledge.
"Wouldn't he know without being asked?" said Polly.
"I've no doubt he would," said the Horse (still with his mouth full). "But I've a sort of idea he likes to be asked."

This next quote is probably my favorite one. It's from VDT.

"But there I have another name. You must learn to know me by that name. This was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there." ~Aslan

I&#39;m not sure I have a favorite quote, but this one expresses my desire to discover new worlds. (And my disdain of modern schooling... <_< )

"But do you really mean, Sir," said Peter, "that there could be other worlds--all over the place, just round the corner--like that?"

"Nothing is more probable," said the Professor [...] "I wonder what they do teach them at these schools."

I thought of another one, from The Last Battle-- where Emeth the Calormen is talking about his meeting with Aslan.

"Then I fell at his feet and thought, Surely this is the hour of death, for the Lion (who is worthy of all honor) will know that I have served Tash all my days and not him. ... But the Glorious One bent down his golden head and touched my forehead with his tongue and said, Son, thou art welcome. But I said, Alas, Lord, I am no son of thine but a servant of Tash. He answered, Child, all the service thou hast done to Tash, I account as service done to me."

sorry I like such long quotes :P

This is my favorite part in (probably) the whole series...it makes me want to scream, cry, laugh, dance, and run a thousand miles all at once. It isn&#39;t really a quote, but I love it. SPOILER

"And for us this is the end of all the stories, and we can most truly say that they all lived happily ever after. But for them it was only the beginning of the real story. All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story with no one on earth has read: which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before."

*screams, cries, laughs, and dances*

I TOLD YOU I WOULD&#33;
