“It seems, then,” said Tirian, smiling himself, “that the stable seen from within and the stable seen from without are two different places.”

“Yes,” said the Lord Digory. “Its inside is bigger than its outside.”

“Yes,” said Queen Lucy. “In our world too, a stable once had something inside it that was bigger than our whole world.”

- C. S. Lewis, from The Last Battle (The Chronicles of Narnia)

One thought on “Bigger Than Our Whole World”

  1. Kevin Bushnell says:

    I just read _The Last Battle_ to my 7 yr old boy. Since the first time that I heard The Chronicles of Narnia being read aloud to me, I’ve always loved the way Lewis could retell the Story in his stories. He was fascinated with stories, and after more than 30 years of reading him, I have become more and more convinced of the power of narrative to influence people in their quest to live for the Emperor Over Sea.
