Roald Dahl

Last week, we said that we are often inspired by Dr. Seuss's incredible quotes, and how childish that actually is. Well, we have a confession to make: we are also greatly affected by the words of Roald Dahl - especially quotes from his children's books, for which we both have a soft spot. The quote below can be found in his novel The Minpins (1991). In this book, the main character, Little Billy, is forbidden by his mother to go through the garden gate to the Forest of Sin. Obviously, he does it decides to do it anyway, and finds all kinds of wonderful things beyond the gate.
We love this book, and especially this fragment from it, because it's só true: as long as you open your eyes, and watch the world with a fresh look and an open mind, you will discover the most wonderful things - often in places where you didn't expect it!
