C.S. Lewis on Heaven

“There have been times when I think we do not desire Heaven, but more often I find myself wondering whether, in our hearts of hearts, we have ever desired anything else.”

“If I find in myself a desire, which no other experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.”

“Our lifelong nostalgia, our longing to be reunited with something in the universe from which we now feel cut off, to be on the inside of some door which we have always seen from the outside, is no mere neurotic fancy, but the truest index of our real situation . . . at last to be summoned from inside would be both glory and honor and also the healing of that old ache.”

“Has this world been so kind to you that you should leave with regret? There are better things ahead than any we leave behind.”

“Joy is the serious business of heaven.”
