roald dahl.

being a lifelong roald dahl fan, i was a little giddy when a cup of jo clued me in to the royal mail collection bearing the images of roald's enchanting book covers.  seeing as how i live in the colonies, the uk stamps wouldn't do me much good.  but the postcard collection was soon on its way to me in the u.s. of a!

“it doesn't matter who you are or what you look like, so long as somebody loves you.”  
-the witches

“i understand what you're saying, and your comments are valuable, 
but i'm gonna ignore your advice.”  
-fantastic mr. fox

“matilda said, '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...'”  

“my dear young fellow,' the old-green-grasshopper said gently, 'there are a whole lot of things in this world 
of ours you haven't started wondering about yet.'”  
-james and the giant peach

“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.  the chance had to be there.”
-charlie and the chocolate factory

“meanings is not important, said the BFG. i cannot be right all the time.  
quite often i is left instead of right.” 
-the bfg

i hope to pass them on some day to a future generation of little roald dahl enthusiasts :)
