Words of Wisdom From C. S. Lewis


Jennie, thank you for this extremely important lesson!

A Teacher's Reflections

It takes more wisdom to be a child than to be an adult.
C.S. Lewis understood this, but not until he was fifty.

“When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so.  Now that I am fifty, I read them openly.  When I became a man, I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”

Thank you Sue Vincent for posting this a long time ago.  It has stayed with me.  I want to keep these words alive.  Read fairy tales with abandon.  Read them out loud.  They have far more wisdom than we realize.  Sometimes it takes us until we’re fifty to truly understand.  C.S. Lewis got it.
