I tried my best to organize these quotes into sections. And I hope they make sense to you all. But before we start here C.S. Lewis wrote the following dedication in his novel to his granddaughter Lucy.

“The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” to his goddaughter, Lucy Barfield: “My Dear Lucy, I wrote this story for you, but when I began it I had not realized that girls grow quicker than books. As a result, you are already too old for fairy tales, and by the time it is printed and bound you will be older still. But someday you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again. You can then take it down from some upper shelf, dust it, and tell me what you think of it. I shall probably be too deaf to hear, and too old to understand a word you say, but I shall still be your affectionate godfather.”

Reepicheep Quotes

Seriously who doesn’t love Reepicheep?! Here are a few of his quotes and even his song lyrics.

Where the waves grow sweet,
Doubt not Reepercheep,
To Find all you seek,
That is The Utter East.” ― Reepicheep

“Are we of Narnia afraid of the dark?” ― Reepicheep

“My own plans are made. While I can, I sail east in the Dawn Treader. When she fails me, I paddle east in my coracle. When she sinks, I shall swim east with my four paws. And when I can swim no longer, if I have not reached Aslan’s country, or shot over the edge of the world into some vast cataract, I shall sink with my nose to the sunrise.” ― Reepicheep

“Stop it,” spluttered Eustace, “go away. Put that thing away. It’s not safe. Stop it, I say. I’ll tell Caspian. I’ll have you muzzled and tied up.” “Why do you not draw your own sword, poltroon!” cheeped the Mouse. “Draw and fight or I’ll beat you black and blue with the flat.” “I haven’t got one,” said Eustace. “I’m a pacifist. I don’t believe in fighting.” “Do I understand,” said Reepicheep, withdrawing his sword for a moment and speaking very sternly, “that you do not intend to give me satisfaction?” ― Reepicheep
