Roald Dahl was not just a ‘children’s book author’, he was a legendary writer who created unforgettable characters and made them speak words of wisdom that resonated with the young and old.
A writer whose words would transcend through time, today marks the 26th anniversary of the author’s death. And to all the other Roald Dahl lovers out there and for Mr. Roald Dahl himself; this is for you.
“Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” — The Minpins
Sometimes it can be elusive, the magic that sometimes plays hide-and-seek as we journey through life. But especially as the holidays approach, always remember you have that little spark within you, that innate ability to become the light for others, to make that magic happen– all by yourself, or with the help of your friends– with kindness, even if just a smile. #magic #roalddahl #shineon #love #stellamlia #love #gratitude #kindness #lookup #getoffthecouch #getoffthephone #shine #smile #holidays Loving this typography by @huntinglouise 💕

“So Matilda’s strong young mind continued to grow, nurtured by the voices of all those authors who had sent their books out into the world like ships on the sea. These books gave Matilda a hopeful and comforting message: You are not alone.” — Matilda
“I began to realise how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. He taught me that if you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it, and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be.” — My Uncle Oswald
“We are all different but there’s something kind of fantastic about that, isn’t there?” —Fantastic Mr. Fox
