Wisdom of Roald Dalh 

I began to realize 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


“Anyone can ask questions,” said Mr. Wonka. “It’s the answers that count.”– Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator
I’ve heard her tell that what you imagine sometimes comes true.– Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Don’t worry about the bits you can’t understand. Sit back and allow the words to wash around you, like music.– Matilda
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.– Matilda
“We must hurry!” said Mr. Wonka. “We have so much time and so little to do! No! Wait! Strike that! Reverse it!”– Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator
Never grow up…always down.– George’s Marvellous Medicine
Some people when they have taken too much and have been driven beyond the point of endurance, simply crumble and give up. There are others, though they are not many, who will for some reason always be unconquerable. You meet them in time of war and also in time of peace. They have an indomitable spirit and nothing, neither pain nor torture nor threat of death, will cause them to give up.– The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More
I was glad my father was an eye-smiler. It meant he never gave me a fake smile because it’s impossible to make your eyes twinkle if you aren’t feeling twinkly yourself. A mouth-smile is different. You can fake a mouth-smile any time you want, simply by moving your lips. I’ve also learned that a real mouth-smile always has an eye-smile to go with it. So watch out, I say, when someone smiles at you but his eyes stay the same. It’s sure to be a phony.– Danny the Champion of the World
Two rights don’t equal a left.– The BFG
Never do anything by halves if you want to get away with it. Be outrageous. Go the whole hog. Make sure everything you do is so completely crazy it’s unbelievable.– Matilda
You should never, never doubt something that no one is sure of.– Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
