Wonder & Whimsy: what’s worth your reading and how much you’re loved

A weekly curation of quotations I come across in my reading life (or on random condiment jars) — from the inspirational to the miscellaneous. Perhaps one inspires you or catches your fancy too…

C. S. Lewis…

“No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally — and often far more — worth reading at the age of fifty and beyond.”

Sarah Clarkson…

“Heroism isn’t about taking your own life in your hands; it’s about being taken hold of by something much bigger and more beautiful than yourself, by a story that draws you into its larger drama and empowers you to act in hope.” (Book Girl)

The Autobiography of St. Margaret Mary

“What dost thou fear? Can a child loved as much as I love thee perish in the arms of the Father who is Omnipotent?” (Jesus’ words to her)
