If you want to tell grown-up fairy tales, you have to look for the dark side.
Juan Antonio Bayona
I like Cinderella, I really do. She has a good work ethic. I appreciate a good, hard-working gal. And she likes shoes. The fairy tale is all about the shoe at the end, and I'm a big shoe girl.
I began to believe the fairy tales: You know, how we're all out there looking for our magical missing half.
Throughout any given season of 'The Bachelor,' the women exclaim that the experience is like a fairy tale. They suffer the machinations of reality television, pursuing - along with several other women, often inebriated - the promise of happily ever after.
Every man's life is a fairy tale written by God's fingers.
Hans Christian Andersen
As children, our imaginations are vibrant, and our hearts are open. We believe that the bad guy always loses and that the tooth fairy sneaks into our rooms at night to put money under our pillow. Everything amazes us, and we think anything is possible. We continuously experience life with a sense of newness and unbridled curiosity.
'Snow White' is an old fairy tale, so obviously the idea of vanity and obsession with youth is long-standing. With today's science, people have become crazy with trying to move their face around. It's bizarre.

The universe has a much greater imagination than we do, which is why the real story of the universe is far more interesting than any of the fairy tales we have invented to describe it.
Lawrence M. Krauss
Fairy tales to me are never happy, sweet stories. They're moral stories about overcoming the dark side and the bad.

You should treat a muse like a fairy.
In fairy tales the bad guy is very easy to spot. The bad guy is always wearing a black cape so you always know who he is.
This is a work of fiction. All the characters in it, human and otherwise, are imaginary, excepting only certain of the fairy folk, whom it might be unwise to offend by casting doubts on their existence. Or lack thereof.
I acquired a hunger for fairy tales in the dark days of blackout and blitz in the Second World War.
A. S. Byatt
I love monsters, I love creatures, I love beings, I love aliens. That's more supernatural and more the stuff of fairy tales. Fairy tales are as ancient as we are. I love those stories. I think they're really interesting because they always have more than simply the fright aspect. There's something deeply psychological.
Everything is for sale in Hollywood; the fairy tale, the costume, the pumpkin, the footman and the mice.
Why should we strive, with cynic frown, to knock their fairy castles down?
Each time I'm starting to work on a film, even if I love to settle the plot in the real world, I start to think about the plot as a fairy tale, or a dream, or a nightmare... As if it was the best way to tell the truth about characters or narration, instead of realism.
I don't know what my formula is. I only know I like my characters to walk in clouds. I like a little bit of the fairy tale. Let others photograph the ugliness of the world. I don't want to distress people.
There is no heaven or afterlife for broken-down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.
If you see the magic in a fairy tale, you can face the future.
All the ancient classic fairy tales have always been scary and dark.
Helena Bonham Carter
