Danny the Champion of the World Quotes

Three of the best book quotes from Danny the Champion of the World
  1. #1
    “I was glad my father was an eye-smiler. It meant he never gave me a fake smile because it’s impossible to make your eyes twinkle if you aren’t feeling twinkly yourself. A mouth-smile is different. You can fake a mouth-smile any time you want, simply by moving your lips. I’ve also learned that a real mouth-smile always has an eye-smile to go with it. So watch out, I say, when someone smiles at you but his eyes stay the same. It’s sure to be a phony.”
  2. #2
    “Grown ups are complicated creatures, full of quirks and secrets.”
  3. #3
    “Most of the really exciting things we do in our lives scare us to death. They wouldn’t be exciting if they didn’t.”
