Thoughts for Thursday--Fairy Tales

Thoughts for Thursday is a new meme hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

This week's theme is quotes about Fairy Tales!

Fairy tales to me are never happy, sweet stories. They're moral stories about overcoming the dark side and the bad.--Joe Wright

If you see the magic in a fairy tale, you can face the future.--Danielle Steel

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 you happen to read fairy tales, you will observe that one idea runs from one end of them to the other--the idea that peace and happiness can only exist on some condition. This idea, which is the core of ethics, is the core of the nursery-tales.--G.K. Chesterton

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.--Alfred Hitchcock

What do you think? Which quote is your favorite? Do you have one to add?

P.S. I'm doing a guest post today over at Kinx's Book Nook about why I love to read. Hop on over and check it out! :D


  1. Ahhhhh, fairy tales! I just adore them! I'm especially enjoyed how YA authors are really trying to re-create some of the favourites! =)

  2. I love the Alfred Hitchcock quote!
