Quotes:

Madeline L’Engle from the Foreward to Lewis’s book A Grief Observed:

“For the true consolations of religion are not rosy and cozy, but comforting in the true meaning of that word: com-fort: with strength. Strength to go on living, and to trust that whatever Joy needs [Lewis’s wife], or anyone we love who has died needs, is being taken care of by that Love which began it all.”

Martin Luther from “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God” (Hymn):

“Let goods and kindred go, this mortal life also, the body they may kill, God’s truth abideth still.  His Kingdom is forever.”
