Without words, without writing, without books there would be no history.There would be no concept of humanity. Buddha

Humanity

And out of that hopeless attempt has come nearly all that we call human history—money, poverty, ambition, war, prostitution, classes, empires, slavery—the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy. C.S. Lewis

Springwater Provincial Park has been a sanctuary for 90 years

The voiceless continue to speak to us.

Maybe that’s what they mean about the gift of the weak. They remind us of something that is all too easy to forget.

But as for Aslan himself, the Beavers and the children didn’t know what to do or say when they saw him. People who have not been in Narnia sometimes think that a thing cannot be good and terrible at the same time. If the children had ever thought so, they were cured of it now. For when they tried to look at Aslan‘s face they just caught a glimpse of the golden mane and the great, royal, solemn, overwhelming eyes; and then they found they couldn’t look at him and went all trembly. C.S. Lewis

Background:

In the late 1970s, it was proposed that the birds and animals be moved from Springwater because the old wire cages were considered inadequate under modern concepts. But once again, there was strong local community support for their retention. This was heeded and instead a decision was made to undertake a program of modernization so that the new wildlife habitat would be larger and more closely resemble natural conditions.

If we cut up beasts simply because they cannot prevent us and because we are backing our own side in the struggle for existence, it is only logical to cut up imbeciles, criminals, enemies, or capitalists for the same reason. C.S. Lewis


It matters enormously if I alienate anyone from the truth.

And then she understood the devilish cunning of the enemies’ plan. By mixing a little truth with it they had made their lie far stronger.

I live in the Managerial Age, in a world of “Admin.” The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid “dens of crime” that Dickens loved to paint. It is not done even in concentration camps and labour camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed, and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voice. Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the offices of a thoroughly nasty business concern.

C.S. Lewis 1998-1963
