Fairy Tales

Aimee Stewart - Treasure Hunt

Child of the pure, unclouded brow
And dreaming eyes of wonder!
Though time be fleet and I and thou
Are half a life asunder,
Thy loving smile will surely hail
The love-gift of a fairy tale.
Lewis Carroll

When the first baby laughed for the first time,
its laugh broke into a thousand pieces,
and they all went skipping about,
and that was the beginning of fairies.
And now when every new baby is born its first laugh becomes a fairy.
So there ought to be one fairy for every boy or girl.
James M. Barrie – Peter Pan.

Fairy Tales are more than true;
not because they tell us that dragons exist,
but because they tell us
that dragons can be beaten.
G. K. Chesterton

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

Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.
C. S. Lewis
