Book Quote: “Once A King In Narnia…”



It’s safe to say that The Chronicles Of Narnia, in general, and The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe, in particular require no introduction. For seven decades C.S. Lewis’ classic works have been an integral part of many a bookworm’s childhood, including my own. In fact, The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe, has the distinction of being the first novel I ever read by myself when I was just seven years old. I’ve read numerous times in the years since then that I couldn’t even guess how many times, and it will always hold a special place in my heart.

My favourite passage from the book has always stayed with me since I was a kid, so it was an easy choice to select it as my quote below. It’s part of a speech by The Professor towards the end of the book, and I’m sure those of you who have read the story will recognise it at once.

“Once a King in Narnia, always a King in Narnia. But don’t go trying to use the same route twice. Indeed, don’t try to get there at all. It’ll happen when you’re not looking for it. And don’t talk too much about it even among yourselves. And don’t mention it to anyone else unless you find that they’ve had adventures of the same sort themselves. What’s that? How will you know? Oh, you’ll know all right. Odd things, they say-even their looks-will let the secret out. Keep your eyes open…”


As I’m rather prone to re-reading The Chronicles Of Narnia pretty frequently, you can expect a review of The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe at some point during the year, so keep an eye out for that.
