So I suppose I’ll continue for a bit with some of my “favorite authors”– of quotes, that is:

“When choosing between two evils, I always like to try the one I’ve never tried before.”
–Mae West

So I’ve had an undercurrent of themes, but this one will be very obvious.

One of my favorite quotable people is C. S. Lewis.  I heard a quote from him this weekend and it got me itching for more, so I’ll be sharing a few over the course of the next days/week!

“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.”
–C. S. Lewis

QOTD!: 15

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” –Marianne Williamson

…Probably my favoritest quote ever.  Emphasis (in blue) my own.
