13th September marks 102 years since the birth of one of our all time favourite authors, Roald Dahl. To celebrate the life and works of this wonderful writer, we wanted to share with you seven of his most ‘splendiferous’ quotes that never fail to make us smile.
“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it. “ The Minpins.
“A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of you face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.“
“It’s impossible to make your eyes twinkly if you aren’t feeling twinkly yourself.” Danny, the Champion of the World.
“All you do is to look at a page in this book because that’s where we always will be. No book ever ends when it’s full of your friends.” The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me.
“Never do anything by halves if you want to get away with it. Be outrageous. Go the whole hog.” Matilda.
“A little nonsense now and then, is relished by the wisest men.” Charlie & The Great Glass Elevator.
“It doesn’t matter who you are or what you look like, so long as somebody loves you.” The Witches.
