Important Enid Blyton Phrases to Live By

If someone asked you to cite Enid Blyton’s most well-known passage and you were a fan, you undoubtedly shouted “lashings of ginger beer!” You would be mistaken, though, as the sentence wasn’t actually written by the Famous Five’s author; rather, it was taken from the movie Five Go Mad in Dorset.

But the well-known author, who would be 118 today if still living, wrote about several feasts in her novels.

“I’m good at exploring roofs. You never know when that kind of thing comes in useful.” – The Rubadub Mystery

“The best way to treat obstacles is to use them as stepping-stones. Laugh at them, tread on them, and let them lead you to something better.” – Mr Galliano’s Circus

“I don’t know why, but the meals we have on picnics always taste so much nicer than the ones we have indoors.” – Five Go Off in a Caravan

“Mothers were much too sharp. They were like dogs.” – The Mystery of the Hidden House

“I think people make their own faces as they grow.”– The Naughtiest girl

“It wasn’t a bit of good fighting grown-ups. They could do exactly as they liked.” – Five on a Treasure Island

“Hatred is so much easier to win than love – and so much harder to get rid of.” ― Six Cousins Again

“Remorse is a terrible thing to bear, Pam, one of the worst of all punishments in this life. To wish undone something you have done, to wish you could look back on kindness to someone you love, instead of on unkindness – that is a very terrible thing.”
― House At The Corner
