"Suppose we have only dreamed, or made up, all of those things- trees and grass and sun and moon and stars and Aslan himself. Suppose we have. Then all I can say is that, in that case, the made-up things seem a good deal more important than the real ones. Suppose this black pit of a kingdom of yours is the only real world. Well, it strikes me as a pretty poor one. And thatís a funny thing, when you come to think of it. Weíre just babies making up a game, if youíre right. But four babies playing a game can make a play-world which licks your real world hollow. Thatís why Iím going to stand by in the play world. Iím on Aslanís side even if there is no Aslan to lead it. Iím going to live like a Narnian even if there isnít any Narnia. So, thanking you kindly for the supper, weíre leaving your court at once and setting out in the dark to spend our lives looking for Overland. Not that our lives will be very long, I should think; but thatís small loss if the worldís as dull a place as you say."
