Recognized as one of the most heartfelt and genuinely insightful men in literature, C.S. Lewis has touched the lives of millions with his enduring literary legacy. From religious texts to epic fantasies, Lewis lines the shelves of many, uniting people who might not have crossed paths otherwise. Lewis was a devoutly spiritual man, as is evident in almost all of his texts. Despite having passed nearly 60 years ago, his relevancy in the modern world has not weaned. In fact, he even has a Twitter page dedicated to spreading his religious genius to contemporary readers.

Regardless of your religious affiliations, many of his quotes are touching not because they are about Christianity, but because they resonate with all of humanity.

The Hurt Effect

The stigma of mental illness is slowly fading, but it’s still all too prevalent. Reach out and ask for the help you need; let yourself and your pain be known to those who love you.

Childhood Innocence

There will come a time when children need to be their own heroes. We all wish that could be once they’re well out of childhood, but often that’s not the case. Let us arm them with the tools to know what it means to be a hero.

Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, but it is more common and also more hard to bear. The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden: it is easier to say “My tooth is aching” than to say “My heart is broken."#CSLewis

Reaping What You Sow

Pay it forward, be a good samaritan, and help without asking for anything in return; all of these things will come back when you need it most.

Be Who You Are, Read What Makes You Happy

This idea that fairy tales are meant only for children is a silly one. Adults need fantasy and heroes just as much as children, sometimes more so. Don’t be ashamed of what you read; wave that book in pride and excitement, sharing it with the world! You never know who needs it, too.

This Too Shall Pass

While I believe Lewis was referring to the past as mortal life and the future as Heaven, I think this can mean far more. It’s the past legacy that one leaves behind to inspire a bright future that should bring you joy. Live life to the fullest and intend to leave behind a record for future generations to inspire to replicate.

Material Happiness is Temporary

While I love my book collection, and should I lose it tomorrow, it would make me sad, that is but temporary. It is my family, my husband and children, my friends, and my loved ones that hold my true happiness.

His wisdom lives on, and his literacy legacy continues to appeal to the masses. Let’s take a page out of C.S. Lewis’s book and think not of ourselves but of those around us and what it truly means to love and be happy.
