Happy Birthday, C. S. Lewis

Born this day in 1898, Clive Staples Lewis, the writer the world would know, and love, as C. S. Lewis.

All that we call human history–money, poverty, ambition, war, prostitution, classes, empires, slavery–is the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy.” ~ C.S. Lewis, in Mere Christianity

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” ~ C.S. Lewis

C.S. Lewis died November 22, 1963, the same day John F. Kennedy was shot.
