Life itself is the most wonderful fairytale of all.
— Hans Christian Andersen
Every man's life is a fairy-tale written by God's fingers.
— Hans Christian Andersen fairytale quote
The fairytale has turned into a nightmare.
— Ian Thorpe
I guess I kind of lived in a fairytale world... looking at everything through rose-colored glasses. I probably always will, to a certain extent.
— Sharon Tate
The fairytale is irresponsible; it is frankly imaginary, and its purpose is to gratify wishes, as a dream does flatter.
— fairytale quotation by Susanne K. Langer
To play someone I loved in my favourite fairytale as a kid is a total honour.
My parents read me fairy tales every night and I used to believe I was a fairytale princess, like every young girl. I had all the Disney dressing-up costumes and would play every character.
I've discovered as I've grown up that life is far more complicated than you think it is when you're a kid. It isn't just a straightforward fairytale.
I am not trying to give an image of a fairytale, perfect, everything else, I am just being myself.
For me, I sort of felt like it was kind of a fairytale.
.. but an interesting one. I don't know of anybody who has had a romance quite like this, but I certainly know people who have stuck it out.
I always thought it hadn't influenced me very much, but I heard from many people from England that many motives from German fairytales are to be found in my books.
I found it all very scary. This fairytale gets built around you - as if you've been walking through the streets and then Sydney Pollack sees you and goes, 'I'll put you in something!'
I didn't break into comics to write fairytales or crime comics.
The Brady Bunch is a live action modern fairytale of family.
In this context it's less odd that it's lasted for over thirty years; and why it may last in some respects as long as Mother Goose!
Fiction is based on reality unless you're a fairytale artist.
I dislike Allegory - the conscious and intentional allegory - yet any attempt to explain the purport of myth or fairytale must use allegorical language.
In kindergarten that used to be my job, to tell them fairytales.
I liked Hans Christian Andersen, and the Grimm fairy tales, all the classic fairy tales.
