"So Matilda’s strong young mind continued to grow, nurtured by the voices of all those authors who had sent their books out into the world like ships on the sea. These books gave Matilda a hopeful and comforting message: You are not alone."

Roald Dahl, Matilda (via prettybooks)

I’ve never read Roald Dahl’s Matilda (yeah, yeah, I know), but I’ve seen the movie at least thirty times. I love it. It’s wonderful. I have nothing else to say except that this quote makes me happy and up until I was, like, eleven, I was convinced Ms. Trunchbull was a man.
