Excerpts From Narnia

“A voice had begun to sing. It was very far away and Digory found it hard to decide from what direction it was coming. Sometimes it seemed to come from all directions at once. Sometimes he almost thought it was coming out of the earth beneath them. Its lower notes were deep enough to be the voice of the earth herself. There were no words. It was hardly a tune. But it was beyond comparison, the most beautiful sound he had ever heard."
- The Magician's Nephew

“He'll be coming and going" he had said. "One day you'll see him and another you won't. He doesn't like being tied down--and of course he has other countries to attend to. It's quite all right. He'll often drop in. Only you mustn't press him. He's wild, you know. Not like a tame lion.” 
- The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe

"Dearest daughter, I knew you would not be long in coming to me. Joy shall be yours."
- The Horse and His Boy

“Aslan" said Lucy "you're bigger".
"That is because you are older, little one" answered he.
"Not because you are?"
"I am not. But every year you grow, you will find me bigger".” 
- Prince Caspian

“A powerful dragon crying its eyes out under the moon in a deserted valley is a sight and a sound hardly to be imagined.”
- The Voyage of The Dawn Treader

"Though under earth, and throneless now I be
Yet while I lived all earth was under me."
- The Silver Chair

“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.”
- The Last Battle
