Famous Quotes 3 of 3: Impossible Things

Finishing up with the three days of famous quotes challenge from my friend Marla (thanks again, Marla), I thought I would continue with some words about impossible things.  This one comes from Walt Disney’s Cinderella, when the fairy godmother is getting everything ready for Cinderella.  I have always loved this particular scene in the old version movie.   She sings a lot in this scene, but the part I love the most is when she sings:

Fairy Godmother

“…Such fol-der-ol and fid-dle-dy dee of course, is— Impossible!
But the world is full of zanies and fools
Who don’t believe in sensible rules
And won’t believe what sensible people say.
And because these daft and dewey-eyed dopes keep building up impossible
Hopes,
Impossible things are happening every day.”

From Rogers and Hammerstein’s music for the movie

I also loved the book and movie The Martian where he takes all of his seemingly impossible challenges and conquers them one by one even when things happen that set him back again and again.  I don’t know whether it would be possible in real life to have conquered the situation like that, but real life does have seemingly impossible challenges for each of us from time to time.

Sew happy everyone!  Do you ever look back at something you have done or made and wonder how in the world you did that or look forward to a project you really want to do and wonder if it is even possible?  Impossible (good) things are happening every day because “daft and dewey-eyed dopes keep building up impossible hopes” and don’t give up.  It also helps a lot to have faith in God who probably gave you that dream in the first place.
