Sayings of the wise“So between the death of Christ and the Last Day it is only by a gracious anticipation of the last things that Christians are priviliged to live in visible fellowship with other Christians.
Not all Christians receive this blessing. The imprisoned, the sick, the scattered lonely, the proclaimers of the Gospel in heathen lands stand alone. They know that visible fellowship is a blessing.”
by Dietrich Bonhoeffer Life Together, , Chapter 1, p18
But the Witch looked as if, in a way, she understood the music better than any of them. Her mouth was shut, her lips were pressed together, and her fists were clenched. Ever since the song began she had felt this whole world was filled with a Magic different from hers and stronger. She hated it. She would have smashed that whole world, or all worlds, to pieces, if it would only stop the singing.— C.S. Lewis, The Magician’s Nephew, Chapter 8, “The Fight at the Lamp-Post”
