“You are never too old to set another goal, or to dream a new dream.” – C.S. Lewis
Despite his quote above, Clive Staple (C.S.) Lewis – born in Ireland in 1898 – started dreaming (and writing) young. He wrote his first pieces by age 7 and went on to write hundreds of essays and more than 30 books. His works continue to attract thousands each year.
Lewis's most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Screwtape Letters and, of course, the universally acknowledged The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books alone have sold over 100 million copies and been made into 3 major motion pictures.
His impact on the world's literature is everlasting.
"Literature," he said, "adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives already have become."
