Silver Chair quotes by C.S. Lewis
#1. You see, Aslan didn't tell Pole what would happen. He only told her what to do. That fellow will be the death of us once he's up, I shouldn't wonder. But that doesn't let us off following the signs.
- The Silver Chair #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Silver Chair quotes by N.D. Wilson
#2. In The Silver Chair, the Marsh-wiggle Puddleglum is all wisdom in rebutting the witch as she denies the existence of the world in which he believes. But as children's fiction isn't quite academically respectable, I'll pretend that I learned this from Blaise Pascal. [ ... ] If the world really is accidental and devoid of meaning, and you and I have no more value in the cosmos than you average bread mold, and Beauty and Goodness are artificial constructs imagined within an explosion, constructs that are controlled by chemical reactions within the accident and have no necessary correspondence to reality, then my made-up children's world licks your real world silly. Depart from me. Go drown in your seething accident. Puddleglum and I are staying here. #Quote by N.D. Wilson
Silver Chair quotes by C.S. Lewis
#3. Suppose we have only dreamed, or made up, all those things - trees and grass and sun and moon and stars and Aslan himself. Suppose we have. Then all I can say is that, in that case, the made-up things seem a good deal more important than the real ones. Suppose this black pit of a kingdom of yours is the only world. Well, it strikes me as a pretty poor one. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Silver Chair quotes by C.S. Lewis
#4. Murder! Fascists! Lions! It isn't fair. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Silver Chair quotes by Plutarch
#5. Pile up gold, heap up silver, build covered walks, fill your house with slaves and the town with debtors, unless you lay to rest the passions of the soul, and put a curb on your insatiable desires, and rid yourself of fear and anxiety, you are but pouring out wine for a man in a fever, and giving honey to a man who is bilious, and laying out a sumptuous banquet for people who are suffering from dysentery, #Quote by Plutarch
Silver Chair quotes by Vaun Murphrey
#6. Time is spent never bought.
Minutes count when seconds blur.
Memories are past that's caught.
Imaginings are future's lure."

Cass and Silver Rainbow- #Quote by Vaun Murphrey
Silver Chair quotes by John Wyndham
#7. Marvelously clear-fretted in the unsmoked air, the Abbey rose, silver-grey. It stood detached by the serenity of age from the ephemeral growths around it. It was solid on a foundation of centuries, destined, perhaps, for centuries yet to preserve within it the monuments to those whose work was now all destroyed. I did not loiter there. In years to come I expect some will go o look at the old Abbey with romantic melancholy. But romance of that kind is an alloy of tragedy with retrospect. I was too close. #Quote by John Wyndham
Silver Chair quotes by Josie Silver
#8. For onlookers, it must have been an Oscar-worthy sixty-second silent movie. From now on, if anyone asks me if I've ever fallen in love at first sight, I shall say yes, for one glorious minute on 21 December 2008. #Quote by Josie Silver
Silver Chair quotes by Nina Sankovitch
#9. The value of experience, real or imagined, is that is shows us how to - or how NOT to - live. In reading about different characters and the consequences of their choices, I was finding myself changed. I was discovering new and distinct ways of undergoing life's sorrows and joys ...
and all the great books I was reading - were about the complexity and entirety of the human experience. About the things we wish to forget and those we want more and more of. About how we react and how we wish we could react. Books ARE experience, the words of authors proving the solace of love, the fulfillment of family, the torment of war, and the wisdom of memory. Joy and tears, pleasure and pain: everything came to me while I read in my purple chair. i had never sat so still, and yet experienced so much. #Quote by Nina Sankovitch
Silver Chair quotes by Lucy Alibar
#10. My dad, like many Southern men, is this very emotionally expressive person who isn't as articulate in words about his feelings as he is with breaking a chair or something like that. #Quote by Lucy Alibar
Silver Chair quotes by Mervyn Peake
#11. She feels a splash of water on her hand and, turning, sees that the sky has become overcast with a blanket of ominous dark rose-colored cloud, and of a sudden the light fades from the lawn and the cedars.

Steerpike, who is on his way back to the Earl's bedroom, stops a moment at a staircase window to see the first decent of the rain. It is falling from the sky in long, upright, and seemingly motionless lines of rosy silver that stand rigidly upon the ground as though there were a million harp strings strung vertically between the solids of earth and sky. #Quote by Mervyn Peake
Silver Chair quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#12. Winter is copper, autumn is bronze, spring is silver, and summer is gold. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Silver Chair quotes by Josh Silver
#13. I do my job in Type O Negative. #Quote by Josh Silver
Silver Chair quotes by Arthur Helps
#14. Most terrors are but spectral illusions. Only have the courage of the man who could walk up to his spectre seated in the chair before him, and sit down upon it; the horrid thing will not partake the chair with you. #Quote by Arthur Helps
Silver Chair quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#15. We all shook hands, and the policeman, having retrieved a piece of chewing-gum from the underside of a chair, where he had parked it against a rainy day, went off into a corner and began to contemplate the infinite. #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
Silver Chair quotes by Ross Macdonald
#16. It was a small room, and it was as crowded with coffee- and end-tables, chairs and hassocks and bookcases, as a second-hand furniture store. The horizontal surfaces were littered with gewgaws, shells and framed photographs, vases and pincushions and doilies. If the lady had come down in the world, she'd brought a lot down with her. My sensation of stepping into the past was getting too strong for comfort. The half-armed chair closed on me like a hand. #Quote by Ross Macdonald
Silver Chair quotes by Nate Silver
#17. I think a lot of journal articles should really be blogs. #Quote by Nate Silver
Silver Chair quotes by Ben Fountain
#18. The main thing about writing is ... writing. Sitting your butt down in the chair and doing the work. #Quote by Ben Fountain
Silver Chair quotes by Vitali Klitschko
#19. He's earned all his money himself, with his fists. He didn't steal it like the rest of our politicians. And he'll be less tempted to steal if he gets in the chair. #Quote by Vitali Klitschko
Silver Chair quotes by Thomas Harris
#20. Back at his chair he cannot remember what he was reading. He feels the books beside him to find the one that is warm. #Quote by Thomas Harris
Silver Chair quotes by Silver Saaremaeel
#21. He decided that whatever he'd think of England, at least it was interesting. It felt as if it had seen what's different and weird elsewhere, and had come together as a country with the sole purpose of outdoing that. #Quote by Silver Saaremaeel
Silver Chair quotes by Joseph Brodsky
#22. In winter you wake up in this city, especially on Sundays, to the chiming of its innumerable bells, as though behind your gauze curtains a gigantic china teaset were vibrating on a silver tray in the pearl-gray sky. You fling the window open and the room is instantly flooded with this outer, peal-laden haze, which is part damp oxygen, part coffee and prayers. No matter what sort of pills, and how many, you've got to swallow this morning, you feel it's not over for you yet. No matter, by the same token, how autonomous you are, how much you've been betrayed, how thorough and dispiriting in your self-knowledge, you assume there is still hope for you, or at least a future. (Hope, said Francis Bacon, is a good breakfast but bad supper.) This optimism derives from the haze, from the prayer part of it, especially if it's time for breakfast. On days like this, the city indeed acquires a porcelain aspect, what with all its zinc-covered cupolas resembling teapots or upturned cups, and the tilted profile of campaniles clinking like abandoned spoons and melting in the sky. Not to mention the seagulls and pigeons, now sharpening into focus, now melting into air. I should say that, good though this place is for honeymoons, I've often thought it should be tried for divorces also - both in progress and already accomplished. There is no better backdrop for rapture to fade into; whether right or wrong, no egoist can star for long in this porcelain setting by crystal water, for it steals the sh #Quote by Joseph Brodsky
Silver Chair quotes by Jill Soloway
#23. On Sunday morning, it's Brooklyn Bagels on Beverly Boulevard. We get them hot. Then we walk some of the famous Silver Lake steps or hike in the hills to the highest vantage point to see the reservoir. #Quote by Jill Soloway
Silver Chair quotes by Julie Buxbaum
#24. We don't talk on the ride home. We don't have to. I feel warm and giddy and like I have a secret that I want to keep all to myself. David Drucker, who is so many different people all at once: the guy who always sits alone, the guy who talked quantum physics even in my dad's dental chair, the guy who held my hand in the snow. I kissed David Drucker, the guy I most like to talk to, and it was perfect. #Quote by Julie Buxbaum
Silver Chair quotes by Sara Gruen
#25. I scan the room. Catherine is writing quickly, her light brown hair falling over her face. She is left-handed, and because she writes in pencil her left arm is silver from wrist to elbow. #Quote by Sara Gruen
Silver Chair quotes by Jerry Stahl
#26. The art and act of writing - speaking just for myself - involves getting your proverbial ass in the proverbial chair. #Quote by Jerry Stahl
Silver Chair quotes by Ron Silver
#27. It made me think about a whole area of human activity that was not really a concern to me before that, because I was involved in reading Chinese history, or languages, or whatever. #Quote by Ron Silver
Silver Chair quotes by Susanna Kearsley
#28. While the other women turned back to their talk of Saint-Germain, she took the opportunity to curl into her chair again and read, and so remove herself from all her greater cares and all the people causing them. #Quote by Susanna Kearsley
Silver Chair quotes by Matthew Pearl
#29. When I ply the cutlass and make the equivalent of sixpence, idiot conscience applauds me. But if I sit in the house and make twenty pounds by writing, idiot conscience wails over my neglect and the day wasted. No, to come down covered with mud and drenched with sweat and rain after some hours in the bush. To change, rub down, and take a chair in the verandah, that makes for a quiet conscience. #Quote by Matthew Pearl
Silver Chair quotes by Marie Rutkoski
#30. Someone was coming through the velvet.
He was pulling it wide, he was stepping onto Kestrel's balcony - close, closer still as she turned and the curtain swayed, then stopped. He pinned the velvet against frame. He held the sweep of it high, at the level of his gray eyes, which were silver in the shadows.
He was here. He had come.
Arin. #Quote by Marie Rutkoski
Silver Chair quotes by Sheri S. Tepper
#31. Near the Mexican border, rocky canyons cleave the mountains, laying them aside like broken wedges of gray cheese furred with a dark mold of pinon and juniper that sheds hard shadows on moon glazed stone, etched lithographs in gray and black, taupe and silver. Beneath feathery chamisa a rattlesnake flicks his tongue, following a scent. Along a precarious rock ledge a ring-tailed cat strolls, nose snuffling the cracks. At the base of the stone a peccary trots along familiar foot trails, toward the toes of a higher cliff where a seeping spring gathers in a rocky goblet. In the desert, sounds are dry and rattling: pebbles toed into cracks, hoofs tac-tacking on stone, the serpent rattle warning the wild pig to veer away, which she does with a grunt to the tribe behind her. From the rocky scarp the ring-tailed cat hears the whole population of the desert pass about its business in the canyon below. #Quote by Sheri S. Tepper
Silver Chair quotes by John Greenleaf Whittier
#32. Quite the ugliest face I ever saw was that of a woman whom the world called beautiful. Through its silver veil the evil and ungentle passions looked out, hideous and hateful. On the other hand, there are faces which the multitude, at first glance, pronounce homely, unattractive and such as "Nature fashions by the gross," which I always recognize with a warm heart-thrill. Not for the world would I have one feature changed; they please me as they are; they are hallowed by kind memories, and are beautiful through their associations. #Quote by John Greenleaf Whittier
Silver Chair quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#33. I had but three chairs in my house; one for solitude, two for friendship; three for society. When visitors came in larger and unexpected numbers there was but the third chair for them all, but they generally economized the room by standing up. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Silver Chair quotes by Kaylin McFarren
#34. Rachel slid inside her silver Kia and slammed the car door, grateful that the museum's security guard was now watching from a distance. If he hadn't been, she might have acted on a homicidal impulse and run Chase over, the manipulative jerk. In fact, it made her feel better just to imagine it. #Quote by Kaylin McFarren
Silver Chair quotes by Kathryn Stockett
#35. Ever afternoon, me and Baby Girl set in the. rocking chair before her nap. Ever afternoon, I tell her: You kind, you smart, you important. But she growing up and I know, soon, them few words ain't gone be enough. #Quote by Kathryn Stockett
Silver Chair quotes by Gayle Forman
#36. Step away from the banana chair, Maribeth texted back. #Quote by Gayle Forman
Silver Chair quotes by Karen Chance
#37. I'm beginning to sense a theme," Mircea said, tossing his suit coat over a buckskin-covered chair. A moose head with huge, outspread antlers loomed over it, its bright glass eyes looking oddly lifelike in the low light. Mircea took in the room, his expression slightly repulsed yet fascinated. "I believe there is only one thing to say at this point."
What's that?"
Yee haw," he said gravely, and took me down like a rodeo calf. #Quote by Karen Chance
Silver Chair quotes by Marilyn Johnson
#38. We settled in a booth at Bishop's 4th Street Diner, an aging silver zeppelin on the rotary outside the naval base, grungy and stuffed with Betty Boop tchotchkes in the windows. The waitress greeted Abbass familiarly and promptly took her order: a hamburger, rare, and fries. #Quote by Marilyn Johnson
