Quote #10

And Aslan stood up and when he opened his mouth to roar his face became so terrible that they did not dare to look at it. And they saw all the trees in front of him bend before the blast of his roaring as grass bends in a meadow before the wind. (15.42)

In a moment, Aslan can transform himself from kittenish romping to a fierce, angry lion. The powers of good have in them to be lighthearted and fun, but also to become terrifying judges with authority and might.
