There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds - Gilbert K. Chesterton
Aa’ menle nauva calen ar’ ta hwesta e’ ale’quenle (Elvish - ‘May thy paths be green and the breeze on thy back’).
I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death - Robert Fulghum
A world in which elves exist and magic works offers greater opportunities to digress and explore - Terry Brooks
As a former elementary school teacher… I told a lot of fairy tales in my day, and I noticed something impressive. My first graders listened to them like they were drinking water on a hot day. They soaked these stories in - they savoured them - and when I was finished telling them, they leaned back and sighed like they just ate a spectacular Thanksgiving dinner - David Sewell McCann
