Great Quotes About Fantasy

To follow up a previous last post--Why Write Fantasy--here's what other great men and women have said about writing fantasy: “I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities.” ― Dr. Seuss “Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It's a way of understanding it.” ― Lloyd Alexander “Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisoned by the enemy, don't we consider it his duty to escape?. . .If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we're partisans of liberty, then it's our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!” ― J.R.R. Tolkien “The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.” ― J.M. Barrie “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions.” ― Albert Einstein “Come away, O human child! To the waters and the wild With a faery, hand in hand, For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.” ― W.B. Yeats “Fantasy, if it's really convincing, can't become dated, for the simple reason that it represents a flight into a dimension that lies beyond the reach of time.” ― Walt Disney Company “Everybody must have a fantasy.” ― Andy Warhol “When you compare the sorrows of real life to the pleasures of the imaginary one, you will never want to live again, only to dream forever.” ― Alexandre Dumas “Don't forget - no one else sees the world the way you do, so no one else can tell the stories that you have to tell.” ― Charles de Lint “Lovers and madmen have such seething brains Such shaping fantasies, that apprehend More than cool reason ever comprehends.” ― William Shakespeare “Classic fairy tales do not deny the existence of heartache and sorrow, but they do deny universal defeat.” ― Greenhaven The best quote of all, from a famous man we all know and love: “Hodor!” ― George R.R.
