"Fairy-tales are more than real, not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten."

G.K. Chesterton


"Well, sir, if things are real, they're there all the time."

"Are they?" said the Professor; and Peter did not know quite what to say.

"But do you really mean, sir," said Peter, "that there could be other worlds—all over the place, just round the corner—like that?"

"Nothing is more probable," said the Professor, taking off his spectacles and beginning to polish them, while he muttered to himself, "I wonder what they do teach them at these schools."

"The Chronicles of Narnia" by C.S. Lewis


"Heroine: a girl who is perfectly charming to live with, in a book."

Mark Twain


"Act dignified in an otherworldly manner and repay your debts with fantastic excess. Make kindness act as your beacon."

Robert Davis


No gentleman were admitted, so Jo played male parts to her heart's content and took immense satisfaction in a pair of russet leather boots given her by a friend, who knew a lady who knew an actor. These boots, an old foil, and a slashed doublet once used by an artist for some picture, were Jo's chief treasures and appeared on all occasions. The smallness of the company made it necessary for the two principal actors to take several parts apiece, and they certainly deserved some credit for the hard work they did in learning three or four different parts, whisking in and out of various costumes, and managing the stage besides. It was excellent drill for their memories, a harmless amusement, and employed many hours which otherwise would have been idle, lonely, or spent in less profitable society.

"Little Women" by Louisa May Alcott


"I kind of think she's one of the sort you can do anything with if you only get her to love you."

"Anne of Green Gables" by L.M. Montgomery

Amelie has a strange feeling of absolute harmony.
It's a perfect moment. Soft light,
a scent in the air, the quiet murmur of the city.
She breathes deeply. Life is simple and clear.
A surge of love, an urge to help mankind comes over her.

Le Fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain, Jean-Pierre Jeunet [2001]
