Hans Christian Andersen was a Danish author. Although a prolific writer of plays, travelogues, novels and poems, Andersen is best remembered for his fairy tales. (Wikipedia)

Some of his most famous fairy tales include:
The Emperor’s New Clothes
The Little Mermaid
The Nightingale
The Snow Queen
The Ugly Duckling
The Little Match Girl
Thumbelina
and many others (Wikipedia)

This month’s theme is fairy tales by Hans Christian Andersen. You may use the name of the fairy tale or a quote from the fairy tale OR create your own fairy tale page!

Here are a few quotes by Hans Christian Andersen:

Life itself is the most wonderful fairy tale.

Every man’s life is a fairy-tale written by God’s fingers.

Everything you look at can become a fairy tale and you can get a story from everything you touch

My life is a lovely story, happy and full of incident.

Where words fail, music speaks.

Autumn came, and the leaves in the forest turned to orange and gold. Then, as winter approached, the wind caught them as they fell.

The whole world is a series of miracles…but we’re so used to them we call them ordinary things.

Just living is not enough…one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.

To travel is to live.

To be of use to the world is the only way to be happy.

But a mermaid has no tears, and therefore she suffers so much more.

Thank you Grace for hosting this challenge. What a wonderful choice! My childhood consisted of reading Hans Christian Anderson's fairy tales many times over. They were among my favourite books. I particularly loved The Emperor's New Clothes and I think the moral of the story still very much applies to today's world. The Little Mermaid always made me cry.
