Three Quotes Challenge – Day Two

I was nominated by the fantastic Millie Thom to participate in the Three Quotes Challenge. A remarkable and eclectic author and blogger, I have truly enjoyed our conversations and love reading her work. It is a huge honor to be nominated by a fellow writer who I admire so much both personally and professionally! ๐Ÿ™‚

These are the ย challenge rules:

  1. Post one quotation a day for three days (they can be from other sources or one of your own).
  2. Nominate 3 other bloggers to participate per post.
  3. Thank the blogger who nominated you.

There isn’t any particular theme I have to adhere to, so I’m going to go with some of my favorite quotes, with a brief description/blurb detailing why that particular piece means so much to me.

I am be nominating the following bloggers to participate as well (if they opt to do so):

C.S. Lewis. A huge part of my childhood, I had a phenomenal experience when studying The Chronicles of Narnia in college for a literature course focused on reading childhood fiction for its literary merit. It was a truly remarkable thing rereading and picking apart a book I once loved purely for entertainment, and being mind-blown by all the subtleties and lessons that readers of all ages could learn from.

As a result of this course, I found myself reading his other works and eventually stumbled across this quote. โค

I grew up Catholic, but have since found myself more spiritual than religious. One of the things I have always struggled with is the concept of an afterlife, and stress over the age-old question of “what happens when we die?” I find this quote incredibly comforting. No one knows for sure what happens when we die, but believing that we all have a soul, we all ARE a soul, makes me feel that it will somehow all work out. ๐Ÿ™‚

What does this quote mean to you? Do you agree with it? Scoff at it? Are you comforted by its message as I am?

  1. I love this quote! It is very true and comforting to me too. Once our time and body is spent in this physical world, we just move back to where we came from… It’s a mystery of Life and Love!

      1. Heaven is just another dimension, invisible to the physical world. I believe in Heaven where Love and Freedom reigns! ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

  2. I love this quote. And CS Lewis is an awesome writer. Have you ever read his books, “The Four Loves”. In it he talks about the ancient Greek words for love, and how they go so much deeper than our vague English word ‘love’ that is generalized in so many ways.
    To answer your question, YES. I definitely believe that I am a soul. My body is simply a tent housing it while stuck here within the parameters of time and space.
    Ohhh, thank you so much for the nomination. It may take me a while to get to it, but I will definitely do it.

  3. Another great quote, Christina, and a very thought-provoking one. Like you, I’ve spent many years thinking about all this… soul or no soul…life after death? Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us and I agree, it is a ‘comforting’ quote. ๐Ÿ™‚
