  7. Belle said to the Beast "Please Don't leave me. I love you" I love that quote from Beauty and the Beast, Because after she says the words it changes the Beast back to to his human self along with everything returning to it's former self. and They Lived Happily Ever After! :) I watched the Disney's version with my Children and it's funny but I fell in love with it! and now I watch it with my 4yr.old grandaughter. It's one of her favorites too! :) Good luck to all! and Happy Reading :)

  18. Hi,

    I love from The Little Mermaid - Ariel: [regarding King Triton, as Sebastian watches, unobserved] "If only I could make him understand. I just don't see things the way he does. I just don't see how a world that makes such wonderful things could be bad."

    [She begins singing "Part of Your World."]

    Ariel: "Look at this stuff, isn't it neat? / Wouldn't ya think my collection's complete / Wouldn't you think I'm the girl / Girl who has everything / Look at this trove, treasures untold / How many wonders can one cavern hold? / Looking around you'd think / Sure, she's got everything / I've got gadgets and gizmos aplenty / I have whoozits and whatzis galore / You want thingamabobs? I've got twenty / But who cares? No big deal / I want more."

    One of my favorite movies!
    Thanks,
    Leanne

  69. Favorite Fairy Tale quote: Once upon a time....

    ReplyDelete
  70. My favorite fairy tale is Beauty and the Beast, but my favorite quote is from Cinderella, because it holds true for every young girl, and her dreams growing up: "For with each dawn, she found new hope that someday, her dreams of happiness would come true."

    ReplyDelete
  71. “The time has come
    The walrus said
    To talk of many things:
    Of shoes- and ships-
    And sealing wax-
    Of cabbages and kings-
    And why the sae is boiling hot-
    And whether pigs have wings.”

    I love "Alice in Wonderland" and often times I'm not sure that it really counts as a fairy tale or not, but that is still my favorite quote. Traditional fairy tale perhaps I'd go with, "Now, shall you deal with ME, O Prince, and all the powers of HELL! (insert really freaking scary evil cackle laugh here)!", Maleficent: Sleeping Beauty. That scared the heck out of me as a kid and the use of that word in a kids movie (Hey, it was a long time ago and you just didn't say such a thing!!)! I was terrified of Maleficent and I think I might still be a bit!

    Thank you for the giveaway chance.

  77. I love fairy tales. I actually wrote a paper for my Literary Non-Fiction class about the resurgence of fairy tales in popular culture. This was last year when the two movies based on "Snow White" came out along with the tv show "Once Upon a Time…" and then "Cinder" came out. It was quite an explosion of fairy tales in mediums. I concluded that because of the rough economic times, people were grasping for something to escape to. In fairy tales, the impossible happens. The disenfranchised become the heroes and heroines. They rise to power and usually become a King or Queen. We are still clinging to the American dream and through the use of fairy tales we get to live that dream. As far as my favorite fairy tale goes, I love "Beauty and the Beast." I love it so much that I have thought seriously about naming my first daughter Belle. In books, I love retellings of fairy tales like "Cinder" and "Ella Enchanted." In TV, the show "Beauty and the Beast" on the CW is one of my favorites and in movies, I loved "Mirror, Mirror," "Beastly" and "The Wizard of Oz." Also, a big fan of the musical "Wicked."
