The Horse and His Boy

Every now and then I post quotes from books, just to make you smile. This is one of those times. These two, as the title of the post would suggest, are from The Horse and His Boy by C.S. Lewis. They’re more for those who have read the book and would like to smile in memory than for those who have never met Shasta and Breehy-hinny-brinny-hoohy-hah. Which reminds me: "Now if I were to say, 'Breeheehinnybrinnyhoohyhah' then I'd have an excuse, because that's a quote." -MJH

“‘Terrible shall the vengeance of the Tisroc be: even now. But kill me, and the burnings and torturings in these northern lands shall become a tale to frighten the world a thousand years hence. Beware! Beware! Beware! The bolt of Tash falls from above!’”
‘Does it ever get caught on a hook halfway?’ asked Corin.
‘Shame, Corin,’ said the King. ‘Never taunt a man save when he is stronger than you: then, as you please.’”

“Aravis also had many quarrels (and, I’m afraid, even fights) with Cor, but they always made it up again: so that years later, when they were grown up, they were so used to quarreling and making up again that they got married so as to go on doing it more conveniently.”
