A Little Bit of Magic | Literary Quotes About Magic ✨

If we’re being honest, we could all use a little magic right now.

We launched our magic range yesterday and you guys loved it. ✨Sweatshirts, tote bags mugs, and journals inspired by our favourite magical traits, and some beautiful art prints too. 

Here's a quick look at our sweatshirts, the bestselling items in the collection! 😊

To help celebrate the launch, and our love for magic in general, we thought we'd pull together some of our favourite quotes from literature that were inspired by the notion of magic and the many beautiful interpretations of it. 

1. 

“Someone needs to tell those tales. When the battles are fought and won and lost, when the pirates find their treasures and the dragons eat their foes for breakfast with a nice cup of Lapsang souchong, someone needs to tell their bits of overlapping narrative. There's magic in that. It's in the listener, and for each and every ear it will be different, and it will affect them in ways they can never predict. From the mundane to the profound. You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone's soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows what they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift. Your sister may be able to see the future, but you yourself can shape it, boy. Do not forget that... there are many kinds of magic, after all.” - Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus. 

2. 

"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." - Roald Dahl, The Minpins. 

3.

"The world is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper." - W.B Yeats.

4.

"Magic is always pushing and drawing and making things out of nothing. Everything is made out of magic, leaves and trees, flowers and birds, badgers and foxes and squirrels and people. So it must be all around us. In this garden - in all the places." - Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden. 

5.

"Magic, madam, is like wine and, if you are not used to it, it will make you drunk." - Susanna Clarke, 

6.

"Effective magic is transcendent nature." - W.B. Yeats.

7.

"I address you all tonight for who you truly are: wizards, mermaids, travelers, adventurers, and magicians. You are the true dreamers." - Brian Selznick, The Invention of Hugo Cabret.
