Quote #10

"Dearest," said Aslan very gently, "you and your brother will never come back to Narnia."

"Oh, Aslan!" said Edmund and Lucy both together in despairing voices.

"You are too old, children," said Aslan, "and you must begin to come close to your own world now." (16.70-72)

While they are children Lucy and Edmund have a malleability that will allow them to visit and participate in different worlds. As adults, they are required to "specialize," becoming good citizens of one world in particular.

Quote #11

"But there I have another name. You must learn to know me by that name. This was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there." (16.76)

Narnia serves an important function in the spiritual development of the Pevensie children.
