Desires


CS-Lewis-warm_thumb[3]

Creatures are not born with desires unless satisfaction for those desires exists. A baby feels hunger: well, there is such a thing as food. A duckling wants to swim: well, there is such a thing as water. Men feel sexual desire: well, there is such a thing as sex. If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world. (Mere Christianity 120) C.S. Lewis

Friend and colleague of J.R.R. Tolkien, faculty of English at Oxford, and writer or the very popular Chronicles of Narnia series. A small portion of his life was turned into a film, Shadowlands starring Anthony Hopkins and Debra Winger. Not bad for a stuffy scholar from Belfast.

My writings about the world, sci-fi, fantasy, and outright lies.

Witty observation, disparaging remark, question for A.A., well this is your chance.
