From “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe”, the white witch approaches Aslan after Edmund has returned to camp and talked things over with Aslan.


“You have a traitor there, Aslan, said the Witch. Of course everyone present knew that she meant Edmund. But Edmund had got past thinking about himself after all he had been through and after the talk he’d had that morning. He just went on looking at Aslan. It didn’t seem to matter what the Witch said.”

And to go with that:

Martyn Joseph and a line from “I have come to Sing”

“Grace: can you tell me love, where are your accusers now?”

    How about the line that caught me, when re-reading the Silver Chair recently – it comes right at the end, when Caspian has died, and he and the children are in Aslan’s country, as the children are sent back. There’s a beautiful description of Caspian being raised to new life, and then this conversation:

    Caspian “Sir, I’ve always wanted to have just one glimpse of their world. Is that wrong?”

    Aslan “You cannot want wrong things any more, now that you have died my son.”

    What a day that will be – never to even want do anything wrong!

    Or as Isaac Watts put it: “There we shall see his face, and never, never sin, and from the rivers of his grace drink endless pleasures in”

    On a more sobering note reading on into the Last Battle one of the most dangerous line of all to believe comes right at the start – Shift to Puzzle – “You know you’re no good at thinking Puzzle, so why don’t you let me do your thinking for you?” – “Watch out, be on your guard…”
