Words of Wisdom from the BFG

I found all my Roald Dahl books in my dad's garage the other day as I was going on a spree searching for books to donate to a friend who's putting together a classroom library for his students. I was so happy, I just stared at all the beautiful, wonderful books and beamed.

Then last night I got home from work and reread Matilda and The BFG.

I think we all can learn a thing or two from the Big Friendly Giant. New Rainbow feature, perhaps? Random BFG quotes? YES.

Here are some words of wisdom from the BFG:

'Meanings is not important,' said the BFG. 'I cannot be right all the time. Quite often I is left instead of right.'

'Words,' he said, 'is oh such a twitch-tickling problem to me all my life. So you must simply try to be patient and stop squibbling. As I am telling you before, I know exactly what words I am wanting to say, but somehow or other they is always getting squiff-squiddled around.'

  1. I remember finding a pile of Enid Blyton's Famous Five books a while ago and was chuffed to bits. I could never part with them.
