“«Quanto pesa una lacrima?»
«Secondo: la lacrima di un bambino capriccioso pesa meno del vento, quella di un bambino affamato pesa più di tutta la terra.»”
Gianni Rodari, Il libro degli errori

“Reality can be entered through the main door or it can be slipped into through a window, which is much more fun.”
Gianni Rodari, The Grammar Of Fantasy: An Introduction To The Art Of Inventing Stories

“Небето е на всички

То е мое, когато го гледам,
и на тоя до мен, и на тебе,
на царя, на градинаря,
на поета, на малкото бебе.

Няма бедняк така беден,
че да не го притежава.
За лъва и за зайчето то е
обща въздушна държава

И никак не се изхабява,
ако пръв го погледне съседа,
не става по-малко красиво,
за който последен го гледа.

А щом е така - питат всички
момиченца и момченца, -
защо е небето цяло,
а земята на малки парченца?”
Gianni Rodari, Filastrocche in cielo e in terra
