25073Re: [mythsoc] Is this a real quote from Lewis?
- Jan 21, 2014I do recognize the train of thought, but as you say, I don't think it's a direct quote. Try the essay on "Forgiveness" (I'll see if I can find the quote I'm thinking of in the next few days unless someone else beats me to it).--Margaret DeanOn Mon, Jan 20, 2014 at 8:52 PM, <WendellWag@...> wrote:Start listening at 51:50 in this podcast:This is the writer David Wong, whose real name is Jason Pargin, speaking. He says, "There's a famous quote from C. S. Lewis, my favorite author, who wrote the Narnia books but also wrote a bunch of books about philosophy and theology. If you hear a really horrific story about somebody, some horrible crime they've committed, and then a week later it turns out to not be true, it was just a routine crime, ask yourself, are you disappointed a little bit?" I suppose the first thing that surprises me is finding out that Lewis is Wong's favorite writer. Incidentally, this podcast contains a certain amount of obscenity, so if that bothers you don't listen to it. What I really want to know though if the quote is real. Does it sound familiar to anyone? I suspect that even if it's real it's an inaccurate memory of it.Wendell Wagner
