My quotes (Theme: Fairy tales)
“There was once a young man who wished to gain his Heart’s Desire.”
― Neil GaimanStardust

“Once upon a time – for that is how all stories should begin – there was a boy who lost his mother.”
― John ConnollyThe Book of Lost Things

“Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
― G.K. Chesterton

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”
― Albert Einstein

“If I’m honest I have to tell you I still read fairy-tales and I like them best of all.”
― Audrey Hepburn

“Fear isn't so difficult to understand. After all, weren't we all frightened as children? Nothing has changed since Little Red Riding Hood faced the big bad wolf. What frightens us today is exactly the same sort of thing that frightened us yesterday. It's just a different wolf. This fright complex is rooted in every individual.”
― Alfred Hitchcock

“Deeper meaning resides in the fairy tales told to me in my childhood than in the truth that is taught by life.”
― Friedrich von Schiller

“In a utilitarian age, of all other times, it is a matter of grave importance that fairy tales should be respected.”

Ok, so I went a little overboard with quotes this week, because I am a little obsessed with fairy tales (as you can probably tell) 


  1. I absolutely love Chesterton and have a book of his quotes somewhere.
    I loved Audrey Hepburn, so graceful and lady-like. Fairy Tales are so very cool!

  2. I love fairy tales too, go as overboard as you want!
    Thanks for participating.

  3. These are all great quotes, I love fairy tales too.
