Yes, these are all great qoutes, thanks for sharing them.

Here's one of my favorite. It's when Prince Caspian has just thrown a fit about Edmund, Lucy, Eustace, and Reepicheep going to the World's end with out him.

"But when the others rejoined him a little later they found him changed; he was white and there were tears in his eyes. It is no good, he said. I might as well have behaved decently for all the good I did with my temper and swagger. Aslan has spoken to me." ..... The Chronicles of Narnia have taught me a lot, and this passage taught me that anger about not getting my own way (etc.) is a waste of energy. Keep cool (and Aslan will always be around to help you do so).
Her mantle glinted in the moon,
As on a hill-top high and far
She danced, and at her feet was strewn
A mist of silver quavering

I always wondered what inspired you to be the epitomy of cool B)
Don't you think you go a bit overboard with it sometimes, though? I mean, it's cool to be cool, but don't freeze people out, girl.
Anyway, here's another one of my favorite quotes:
Aslan to Shasta in HHB:
"Child, I am telling you your story, not hers. I tell no-one any story but his own."
Call me Fae I'm an old member of TDL that strayed away for a couple of years, but now I'm back.

"When the wind's in the east from the darkling sky
To the shores of Faerie I shall fly.
I will refuge there in the woodland wild,
And be known to all as the Faerie Chylde."

my fav. quote is probably:
'' wrong will be right when aslan comes in sight
at the end of his roar sorrows will be no more
when he bares his teeth, winter has met its death
and when he shakes his main we shall have spring again''
-''old rhyme in these parts''
this is said by mrs. beaver in l.w.w.

I also really liked that quote by Puddleglum about the "make-believe" world, and of course the last paragraph of the Last Battle which is about my favorite.

...but some of these made me stop and think for a while:

(about the duffers)
One day the cat got into the dairy and twenty of them were at work moving all the milk out; no one thought of moving the cat.
I see that as a great parable. Trying to remove yourself away from sin instead of trying to move sin away from yourself.

Then there's in Prince Caspian:
"Aslan, said Lucy, "you're bigger."
"That is because you are older, little one," answered he.
"Not because you are?"
"I am not. But every year you grow, you will find me bigger."
...and the passage with Eustace:
"'You will have to let me undress you,' [said Aslan.]...
"The very first tear he made was so deep that I thought it had gone right into my heart. And when he began pulling the skin off, it hurt worse than anything I've ever felt. The only thing that made me able to bear it was just the pleasure of feeling the stuff peel off."
Such great imagery.

"There is no other stream" - Aslan
Human beings, all over the earth, have this curious idea that they ought to behave in a certain way, and can't really get rid of it.

Another one of my all time fav quotes is when Digory is telling Aslan about his mother, and Dig starts to sniffle. I can't remember it exactly but it says that Digory was at that point only looking at Aslan's feet, but then he looked up and saw that Aslan was crying, big huge tears. And then Aslan said, "I have known great sorrow."

That just tore me up, it's such a small sentence, but it carries a lot of emotion!

This one has always been one of my favorites....

"Safe?" said Mr. Beaver; "don't you hear what Mrs. Beaver tells you? Who said anything about safe? 'Course he isin't safe. But he's good. He's the King, I tell you."
"You comprehend my path and my lying down, and are acquanted with all my ways. For there is not a word of my tongue, but behold, Oh Lord, You know it altogether. You have hedged me behind and before and laid Your hand upon me. Such knowlage is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot atain it."~Psalm 139:3-6
Predestination is a reality...If you don't accept it, it's because God doesn't want you to...

It has been quite a while since I read the books, but....

In LW&W I vividly remember Aslan scolding Peter for not remembering to clean his sword after the battle.

Even as a child it struck me how beautifully this illustrated the value of a clean conscience.

Maybe I am reading too much into it....

... Anyone else have an interpretation?
You have to be educated to know how stupid you really are...
