Quote of the Day: Burnett

“The sun is shining – the sun is shining. That is the Magic.
The flowers are growing – the roots are stirring. That is the Magic.
Being alive is the Magic – being strong is the Magic.
The Magic is in me – the Magic is in me… It’s in every one of us.”
~ Frances Hodgson Burnett


Enlightening words from the author of some of my very favourite childhood stories, ‘The Secret Garden’ and ‘A Little Princess’.

  1. Such inspiring books… Can’t wait to start reading them with my kiddos. Tried with little miss, still a bit too young to get excited about a book without pictures. Soon though!

    • They really are! I first encountered them as movies as a child but later fell in love the with literature, too. I’m sure she’ll enjoy them too as she continues to grow and discovers the wonder of great storylines without pictures πŸ™‚
