Favorite Tattle Tales Quotes

1. "For the house of Dunraven, the ravens represented a spiritual claim to the Tower for the Celtic, especially the Welsh, people. For the English, the ravens represented the colorful savagery of their ancestors, which, however, testified to the exalted state of civilization they had since achieved. The national sagas of the Welsh and English gradually blended in tall tales told to tourists by Yeoman Warders, to eventually create a national myth. The romanticized past of Wales, predicated on survival, was fused with that of England, predicated on progress and conquest, to create a legend of Britain."
Author: Boria Sax
2. "Think of the prequels like snap shots of a magical land you're about to visit soon. I like to think of them as poisoned apples…once you taste them, you'll never see fairy tales in the same light again."
Author: Cameron Jace
3. "Ben invented mathematical theories that even he didn't manage to remember and wrote such bizarre tales of adventure that he ended up destroying them a week after they were finished, embarrassed at the thought that he had penned them."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
4. "Vampires were hardly the monsters we were made out to be in fairy tales and television shows. We were hardly different from humans, but for the genetic mutation, fangs, silvering eyes, and periodic penchant for blood. What? I said hardly different."
Author: Chloe Neill

Author: Edwidge Danticat
6. "Not all faerie tales aren't true."
Author: Ellezier Ominoreg
7. "Legends of the Silver Stallion had been told for years now, whenever mountain stockmen met round the campfires or on the winding hill tracks. Songs were sung about him to the cattle and both songs and tales had become even stranger since his supposed death when he vanished through the wind and the night over a great cliff. Tales kept cropping up of a ghost horse seen, or imagined, roaming over the mountains at night, of stockmen waking in a hut at midnight, hearing the tremendous stallion's cry which could only be Thowra's"
Author: Elyne Mitchell
8. "My soul has painted like the wings of butterflies,Fairy tales of yesterday will grow but never die,I can fly, my friends..."

Author: George R.R. Martin

Author: Gurdieff
11. "Non- Euclidean calculus and quantum physics are enough to stretch any brain; and when one mixes them with folklore, and tries to trace a strange background of multi-dimensional reality behind the ghoulish hints of Gothic tales and the wild whispers of the chimney-corner, one can hardly expect to be wholly free from mental tension. (Dreams In The Witch-House)"
Author: H.P. Lovecraft
12. "PDR: Persons of Dubious Reality; refugees from the collective consciousness. Uninvited visitors who have fallen through the grating that divides the real, from the written. They arrive with their actions hardwired due to their repetitious existence and the older and more basic they are, the more rigidly they stick to them. Characters from cautionary tales are particularly mindless; they do what they do because it's what they've always done.And it's our job to stop them."
Author: Jasper Fforde
13. "David could tell, by looking at her face as she read, whether or not the story contained in the book was living inside her, and she in it, and he would recall again all that she had told him about stories and tales and the power that they wield over us, and that we in turn wield over them."
Author: John Connolly
14. "Tents are boasters, telling exaggerated tales of the weather they protect us from." (Emperor of Thorns)"
Author: Mark Lawrence
15. "Fairy tales are experienced by their hearers and readers, not as realistic, but as symbolic poetry."
Author: Max Luthi
16. "Of course, fairy tales are transmissible. You can catch them, or be infected by them. They are the currency that we share with those who walked the world before ever we were here.(Telling stories to my children that I was, in my turn, told by my parents and grandparents makes me feel part of something special and odd, part of the continuous stream of life itself.)"
Author: Neil Gaiman
17. "..These exhibitions, and the stories behind them, should also in due course have their own catalogs and novels. As visitors admire the objects and honor the memory of Füsun and Kemal, with due reverence, they will understand that, like the tales of Leyla and Mecnun or Hüsn and A?k, this is not simply a story of lovers, but of the entire realm, that is, of Istanbul."
Author: Orhan Pamuk
18. "Worship isn't destructive, Martin. I know that. I don't. I only know it's the core of his life. What else has he got? He can hardly read. He knows no physics or engineering to make to world real for him. No paintings to show him how others have enjoyed it. No music except television jingles. No history except tales from a desperate mother. No friends. Not one kid to give him a joke, or make him know himself more moderately. He's a modern citizen for whom society doesn't exist."
Author: Peter Shaffer
19. "In this society, or rather our social construct, where almost all is left up to the individual's interpretation, the line between virtue and vice seems less perceptible than ever before. At least in my experience, of something I have noted repeatedly and in my observation of people's communication regarding the issue, I have come to my own conclusions. Albeit arrogantly, and with a sense of disdain for the tales that have been "made-up" in support of human hypocrisy, I am convinced that most people cannot discern between right and wrong, good and evil and least of all, true or false."
Author: Peyton Dracco
20. "Most kids don't believe in fairy tales very long. Once they hit six or seven they put away "Cinderella" andher shoe fetish, "The Three Little Pigs" with their violation of building codes, "Miss Muffet" and herwell-shaped tuffet—all forgotten or discounted. And maybe that's the way it has to be. To survive in theworld, you have to give up the fantasies, the make-believe. The only trouble is that it's not allmake-believe. Some parts of the fairy tales are all too real, all too true. There might not be a Red RidingHood, but there is a Big Bad Wolf. No Snow White, but definitely an Evil Queen. No obnoxiously cuteblond tots, but a child-eating witch… yeah. Oh yeah."
Author: Rob Thurman
21. "I've met talespinners before, Jake, and they're all cut more or less from the same cloth. They tell tales because they're afraid of life."
Author: Stephen King
22. "Though now we think of fairy tales as stories intended for very young children, this is a relatively modern idea. In the oral tradition, magical stories were enjoyed by listeners young and old alike, while literary fairy tales (including most of the tales that are best known today) were published primarily for adult readers until the 19th century."
Author: Terri Windling
23. "In the fairy tales there's only one Big Bad Wolf and the little girl takes only one trip through the Dark Forest and fights only one fight for her life before the story ends in happily and ever after. But life on the Calle is real, not make-believe, and every Calle girl knows that once the My-What-Big-Paws-You-Have fall on her skin, Little Red will carry that scent no matter how hard she scrubs. From that point on, every wolf in the every forest of her very real life will recognize her and they'll do their Biggest and Baddest to get into her basket anytime she drops her guard. So be prepared. We're not out of the woods yet."
Author: Tupelo Hassman

Sulphurous wind gusted in his wake; the dust of the street swirled and the folds of his black coat flapped against his thin body."
