Chapter One of the Great Story

“The term is over: the holidays have begun. The dream is ended: this is the morning.”

 And as He spoke, He no longer looked to them like a lion; but the things that began to happen after that were so great and beautiful that I cannot write them. And for us this is the end of all the stories, and we can most truly say that they all lived happily ever after. But for them it was only the beginning of the real story. All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page: now at least they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on for ever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.

– C. S. Lewis, ‘The Last Battle’, The Chronicles of Narnia

And this I too believe is what heaven would be like. =)
