Roald Dahl Day – His Most Memorable Quotes

September 13th is Roald Dahl Day, a celebration of one of the world’s greatest storytellers!

September is Roald Dahl’s birth month and in honour of him, a mixture of fun-filled events take place across the globe. The very first Roald Dahl day took place on what would have been Roald’s ninetieth birthday in 2006. Twelve years later, and many more people are recognising this special day and the influence he had on children’s literature.

To celebrate Roald Dahl Day at, we have complied our top 10 most memorable quotes Dahl gifted us with through his literature.

  1. “I began to realise how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.”

  2. “Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it”

  3. “You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely”

  4. ” Never do anything by halves if you want to get away with it. Be outrageous. Go the whole hog. Make sure everything you do is so completely crazy it’s unbelievable”

  5. “Having power is not nearly as important as what you choose to do with it”

  6. “We are all different but there’s something kind of fantastic about that, isn’t there”

  7. ” Well, maybe it started hat way. As a dream, but doesn’t everything? Those buildings. These lights. This whole city. Somebody had to dream about it first.”

  8. ” So please, oh please, we beg, we pray, go throw your TV set away, and in its place you can install a lovely bookcase on the wall.”

  9. “Meanings is not important” said the BFG. “I cannot be right all the time. Quite often I is left instead of right”

  10. “A little nonsense now and then, is relished by the wisest me”
