3 Days, 3 Quotes

“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 there isn’t any Narnia.”

― C.S. Lewis, The Silver Chair

This is my third and final quote. It’s more important to me for its meaning rather than where it comes from (no critcism of the Narnia books though).

It reminds me that you should strive to act like a good person, no matter how much the people and situation around you are not good. It’s frustrating when I see others acting cruelly or selfishly and justifying it by saying, ‘that’s just the way things are’, and even worse when I find myself doing it. We all help to make our society and by acting as if being kind and rational are defaults we are helping to create a society where they actually are.

When I remember this and start acting the way I would like everyone to act, then people respond to me with kindness, and I realise that I’ve been part of the problem.

And in case that is a little too serious, here is a quote from Catch 22…

“Yossarian was flabbergasted. His leg went abruptly to sleep.”

  1. LOL …. sorry, but I’m laughing uncontrollably at the second quote, because my legs keep going to sleep – much to my chagrin! So this seems so wickedly apt!

    As for the final quote of the challenge, wonderful.

    And you’re too right – kindness costs nothing, opens the doors for others to stop and perhaps realize they are behaving or acting “less than” …. and perhaps allows for a change of mind and heart, and a playing it forward. And yes, the more we practice or try to remember it doing/being kind naturally, the more we receive it in return 😀
