Twenty First Century Movie Quotes

Hi everyone. I was astounded at what had happened to Lady Gaga’s French bulldogs and her dog walker. I do not know what is happening to this world, when you can’t even take your dogs out for a walk, but I am glad to hear that the dogs have been returned safely and that her dog walker Ryan Fischer is on the road to recovery, but this violent act should never have happened. I hope the ones that did this vindictive act gets caught as soon as possible. Since this pandemic started the wave of crime as gone up dramatically. It upsets me that rather than unifying us by pulling us together, it is showing humanity at is worst.

Hans Christian Andersen

Hi everyone, today would of been Hans Christian Andersen’s birthday, so to celebrate this iconic storyteller, I thought I would write a small bio and some of his quotes by the man himself.

Bio

Hans Christian Andersen was born April 2nd 1805, he was born in Odense Denmark. When he was born nobody knew what an influence he would have on the world. He became famous for being an author, poet, novelist, travel writer and playwright. He was most famous for his book of fairy tales that are loved by people of all ages, right up to this day.

By the time Hans reached 14 he started working as a soprano at the royal Danish Theatre, but when his voice broke that was when he begun writing poetry, on the advice given to him by a colleague, and from there he started writing short stories that became a huge success and where he found fame.

Andersen is most famous for The Ugly Duckling’, ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’, ‘Thumbelina’, ‘The Snow Queen’, ‘The Little Mermaid; The Princess and The Pea’ and ‘The Wild Swans’ among many others. Now his fairy tales are a part of our culture and are available in most countries and translated into 100 languages.
