Watch with glittering eyes

And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.  Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.

– Roald Dahl

    Oh. This is new to me, somehow. Putting it away in my big stash to be wondered over…

    Thank you!

    Oh, I love this quote. (Oddly but wonderfully, – it reminds me of a line from Castle, in which Richard Castle says much the same thing to too-practical Kate Beckett.)

    This quote came at JUST the right time. Needing some magic – and always have to remind myself that it’s out there! Thanks Lindsey!

    I love this quote. It reminds me of some other words I adore:
    Eden Phillpotts wrote, “The Universe is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.”
    Magic all around!

    LOVE this. And love Christa’s comment. I want to do that, too. 🙂

    I think this quote is so special… weirdly I posted it on my blog just two days ago – I think magic must be in the air! I’m loving your writing and insights at the moment, Lindsey – the little wonders and fairytales – so special and relevant in my life at the moment – thanks. H xo
