Beyond the Lone Islands

Sunday, 30 August 2009


You get amazingly close to the lions at this zoo.
All that is between you is a plexiglass wall and a thin wire.
And for a change, it is the humans who are in the "cage",
while the lions are outside, looking in...

'Then he isn't safe?' said Lucy.
'Safe?' said Mr Beaver; 'don't you hear wthat Mrs Beaver tells you? Who said anything about safe? 'Course he isn't safe. But he's good. He's the King, I tell you.'
'I'm longing to see him,' said Peter, 'even if I do feel frightened when it comes to the point.'
From C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe

Dawn just pulled my favorite ... or at least one of my favorite quotes from The Lion, Witch and Wardrobe. There are so many great quotes! Did you see the Disney Rendition of the Movie? I thought they did a good job on it and also "Prince Caspian".

Dan, if I keep on blogging long enough, I'll probably have quoted the whole Chronicles eventually... ;) I have both movies on DVD.
