Time to add a few more quotes to the mix. And to be fair to both sides we selected the mindless classic Zoolander and the literary writings of C.S. Lewis.
"I call all times soon."
"'It's all right! It isn't Her!' This was bad grammar of course, but that is how beavers talk when they are excited; I mean, in Narnia – in our world they usually don't talk at all."
"For in Calormen, story-telling (wether the stories are true or made up) is a thing you're taught, just as English boys and girls are taught essay-writing. The difference is that people want to hear the stories, whereas I never heard of anyone who wanted to read the essays."
"Come, live with me and you'll know me."
"The boys began to wonder if raw meat was really as nasty as they had always been told. Trumpkin assured them it was."
"To know what would have happened, child? No. Nobody is ever told that."
"…They were talking about Narnia, which was the name of their own private and secret country. Most of us, I suppose, have a secret country but for most of us it is only an imaginary country."
"I don't know what the Bearded Glass was for because I am not a magician."
"Your father and mother and all of you are – as you used to call it in the Shadowlands – dead. The term is over: the holidays have begun. The dream is ended: this is the morning."
"You've no idea how good an old joke sounds when you take it out again after a rest of five or six hundred years."
"I have come home at last! This is my real country! I belong here. This is the land I have veen looking for all my life, though I never knew it till now. The reason why we loved the old Narnia is that it sometimes look a little like this. Bree-hee-hee! Come further up, come further in!"
"It's all in Plato, all in Plato: bless me, what do they teach them at these schools!"
"You see, they will not let us help them. They have chosen cunning instead of belief. Their prison is only in their own minds, yet they are in that prison; and so afraid of being taken in that they cannot be taken out."
"In our world too, a stable once had something inside it that was bigger than our whole world."
"But in Narnia your good clothes were never your uncomfortable ones. They knew how to make things that felt beautiful as well as looking beautiful in Narnia: and there was no such hing as starch or flannel or elastic to be found from one end of the country to the other."
"This was perhaps just as well, for a unicorn and a fat, full-grown Donkey indoors always make a room feel rather crowded."
"But if someone who had never seen a lion looked at Puzzle in his lion-skin he just might mistake him for a lion, if he didn't come to close, and if the light was not too good, and if Puzzle didn't let out a bray and didn't make any noise with his hoofs."
"After that the Head's friends saw that the Head was no use as a Head, so they got her made an Inspector to interfere with the other Heads. And when they found that she wasn't much good even at that, they got her into Parliament where she lived happily ever after."
"Even in this world, of course, it is the stupidest children who are the most childish and the stupidest grown-ups who are most grown-up."
"But however happy you are feeling, you can't talk with your mouth full of snow."
"Where I come from, they don't think much of men who are bossed about by their wives."
"Every gnome seemed to be as busy as it was sad, though Jill never found out what they were so busy about."
"Many come down, and few return to the sunlit lands. It is said that they will all wake at the end of the world."
"Now a job like this – a journey up north just as winter's beginning, looking for a Prince that probably isn't there, by way of a ruined city that no one has ever seen – will be just the thing. If that doesn't steady a chap, I don't know what will."
"You would not have called to me unless I had been calling to you"
"Owing to the curious methods of teaching at Experiment House, one did not learn much French or Maths or Latin or things of that sort; but one did learn a lot about getting away quickly and quietly when THey were looking for one."
