10 L. Frank Baum Quotes

L. Frank Baum

The sky was darkened, and a low rumbling sound was heard in the air. There was a rushing of many wings, a great chattering and laughing, and the sun came out of the dark sky to show the Wicked Witch surrounded by a crowd of monkeys, each with a pair of immense and powerful wings on his shoulders. ~ The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum The Tin Woodman knew very well he had no heart, and therefore he took great care never to be cruel or unkind to anything. ~ The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum "I am Oz, the Great and Terrible," spoke the Beast, in a voice that was one great roar. "Who are you, and why do you seek me?" ~ The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum "You people with hearts," he said, "have something to guide you, and need never do wrong." ~ The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum "A baby has brains, but it doesn't know much. Experience is the only thing that brings knowledge, and the longer you are on earth the more experience you are sure to get." ~ The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum "I think you are wrong to want a heart. It makes most people unhappy. If you only knew it, you are in luck not to have a heart." ~ The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum "You have plenty of courage, I am sure," answered Oz. "All you need is confidence in yourself. There is no living thing that is not afraid when it faces danger. The true courage is in facing danger when you are afraid, and that kind of courage you have in plenty." ~ The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum "I shall take the heart," returned the Tin Woodman; "for brains do not make one happy, and happiness is the best thing in the world." ~ The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum "All the same," said the Scarecrow, "I shall ask for brains instead of a heart; for a fool would not know what to do with a heart if he had one." ~ The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum "No matter how dreary and gray our homes are, we people of flesh and blood would rather live there than in any other country, be it ever so beautiful. There is no place like home." ~ The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum
