Fairy Tale Quotes

I recently discovered some great fairy tale quotes on Goodreads. Be sure and let me know which one is your favorite and/or if you know of any more interesting ones.

Oh, and if you’re a member of Goodreads (My profile here) be sure and add me as your friend. :)

Have a great weekend,



"I use to be Snow White, but I drifted." Mae West

"you see the magic in a fairy tale, you can face the future" Danielle Steel

"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

"The way to read a fairy tale is to throw yourself in." W.H. Auden

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

I especially like the C.S. Lewis quote.

Isn't it amazing how fairy tales don't lose their appeal?

Hi Stella,
I like that one too. The one by Mae West makes me smile. What a character.
