Quote: 17th October 2016

“Your Majesty would have a perfect right to strike off his head,” said Peridan. “Such an assault as he made puts him on a level with assassins.”
“It is very true,” said Edmund. “But even a traitor may mend. I have known one that did.” And he looked very thoughtful.” ~ C.S. Lewis, The Horse and His Boy

The first part of this quote is not so interesting, but what Edmund says has so much depth and meaning especially since he is making reference to the book which was written before this one… it always makes me smile. The Horse and His Boy is my favourite book, and this is one of my favourite moments – when Edmund allows Rabadash to live.
