Thought for the day

The Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) is world famous for his fairy tales - including The Tinderbox, The Little Mermaid, The Red Shoes, The Princess and the Pea, The Ugly Duckling, The Emperor's New Clothes and The Snow Queen, but his plays, novels, poems and travel books are unknown outside Denmark . Like Joseph Stalin, he was the son of a cobbler and a washerwoman.

Quote for the day:

“Every man's life is a fairy tale written by God's fingers.” HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN
