Quotes About Fairy Tales And Life

"Fairy tales in childhood are stepping stones throughout life, leading the way through trouble and trial. The value of fairy tales lies not in a brief literary escape from reality, but in the gift of hope that goodness truly is more powerful than evil and that even the darkest reality can lead to a Happily Ever After. Do not take that gift of hope lightly. It has the power to conquer despair in the midst of sorrow, to light the darkness in the valleys of life, to whisper "One more time" in the face of failure. Hope is what gives life to dreams, making the fairy tale the reality." - Author: L.R. Knost

Quotes About Resourcefulness

"Dick tried to rest - the struggle would come presently at home and he might have to sit a long time, restating the universe for her. A "schizophrĂȘne" is well named as a split personality - Nicole was alternately a person to whom nothing need be explained and one to whom nothing could be explained. It was necessary to treat her with active and affirmative insistence, keeping the road to reality always open, making the road to escape harder going. But the brilliance, the versatility of madness is akin to the resourcefulness of water seeping through, over and around a dike. It requires the united front of many people to work against it." - Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald

Totally taken over by her anaconda love, she had no self left, no fears, no wants, no intelligence that was her own [...] Ruth heard the supplication in her words and it seemed to her that she was not looking at a person but at an impulse, a cell, a red corpuscle that neither knows nor understands why it is driven to spend its whole life in one pursuit: swimming up a dark tunnel toward the muscle of a heart or an eyes nerve end that it both nourished and fed from." - Author: Toni Morrison

Quotes About Sebold

Quotes About Found Happiness

"I kept waiting for something bigger, something more profound, something that I could hitch myself to and be carried away once and for all to the heaven-on-earth that I deserved.

And when it wasnt, which was most of the time, I got really anxious, and when I got anxious, I started thinking about how good it would feel to get high again." - Author: William C. Moyers
