…you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
By Roald Dahl.
Roald Dahl (1916 – 1990) was a British novelist with Norwegian parentage, he wrote many books, unfortunately I haven’t been able to read many of them.
This will be a very brief post as I should be writing on a letter to Trinity College in Dublin and revise my movie analysis for tomorrows English class at this very moment.
(Brief text on what that quote means to me right now):
Great secrets are found in the most unlikely places. I would rather like to say that inspiration and the urge to write is found in the most unlikely places. Inspiration comes to me when I walk, at my home you are likely find me walking around in my room with a notebook because my thoughts are really spinning when I walk. When any song by Voltaire appears on my MP3-player (yep, I do not have an iPod!) my thoughts, if possible, spins even faster. Sometimes I just walk in a circle while listening to music and letting my thoughts spin wild.
Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it. When I don’t believe that I’ll find any inspiration, but truth is: anything is inspiration to me if I just chose to be positive. The simplest things can contain the biggest story, if you get a little sentence in you head about ex. a cup, don’t throw it away let it develop and become something bigger, writing-worthy.
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.
Look at everything with fresh eyes, because hidden treasures can be anywhere you look. Maybe you missed a fairy in the hedge or the witch that crossed the street. Remember, you can see anything you want if you just chose to look at it.
