Quote by Roald Dahl

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 your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.

Quote by Roald Dahl in Charlie und die Schokoladenfabrik (Book quote)

Rainbow drops - suck them and you can spit in six different colours.

Quote by Roald Dahl in Charlie und die Schokoladenfabrik (Book quote)

Mr Willy Wonka can make marshmallows that taste of violets, and rich caramels that change colour every ten seconds as you suck them, and little feathery sweets that melt away deliciously the moment you put them between your lips. He can make chewing-gum that never loses its taste, and sugar balloons that you can blow up to enormous sizes before you pop them with a pin and gobble them up. And, by a most secret method, he can make lovely blue birds' eggs with black spots on them, and when you put one of these in your mouth, it gradually gets smaller and smaller until suddenly there is nothing left except a tiny little darkred sugary baby bird sitting on the tip of your tongue.

Quote by Roald Dahl in Charlie und die Schokoladenfabrik (Book quote)

Willy Wonka: 'I am the maker of music, the dreamer of dreams!'

Quote by Roald Dahl in Charlie und die Schokoladenfabrik (Book quote)

But there was one other thing that the grown-ups also knew, and it was this: that however small the chance might be of striking lucky, the chance is there.

Quote by Roald Dahl in My Uncle Oswald (Book quote)

Life is more fun if you play games.

Quote by Roald Dahl in Charlie und die Schokoladenfabrik (Book quote)

I've heard tell, that what you imagine sometimes comes true.

Quote by Roald Dahl in Matilda (Book quote)

It's a funny thing about mothers and fathers. Even when their own child is the most disgusting little blister you could ever imagine, they still think that he or she is wonderful.

Quote by Roald Dahl in Matilda (Book quote)

The books transported her into new worlds and introduced her to amazing people who lived exciting lives. She went on olden-day sailing ships with Joseph Conrad. She went to Africa with Ernest Hemingway and to India with Rudyard Kipling. She travelled all over the world while sitting in her little room in an English village.

Quote by Roald Dahl in Matilda (Book quote)

I'm right and you're wrong, I'm big and you're small, and there's nothing you can do about it.

Quote by Roald Dahl in The Witches (Book quote)

It doesn't matter who you are or what you look like, so long as somebody loves you.

Quote by Roald Dahl in Charlie und die Schokoladenfabrik (Book quote)

You should never, never doubt something that no one is sure of.

Quote by Roald Dahl

Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.

Quote by Roald Dahl

I began to realize how simple life could be if one had a regular routine to follow with fixed hours, a fixed salary, and very little original thinking to do.

Quote by Roald Dahl

A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.

Quote by Roald Dahl

Two hours of writing fiction leaves this writer completely drained. For those two hours he has been in a different place with totally different people.

Quote by Roald Dahl

If my books can help children become readers, then I feel I have accomplished something important.
