Lions, and Tigers, and Bears, OH MY!

Today, August 12, 1939, that great film, The Wizard of Oz, was released.  It is one of my favorites.  So many of its lines come to mind.
There's no place like home.
We're not in Kansas anymore
Somewhere over the rainbow
I'll get you, my pretty
A heart is not judged by how you love, but by how you are loved by others.

I remember reading all the Oz books when I was young.  It was like the "Harry Potter" for past generations.  On the surface it was an entertaining adventure, but so many values and lessons were woven into the story
Accept your friends as they are
Look for your pathway in life
Don't try to be something you aren't
You have great power within you
Dream, become inspired
Don't give up--Don't run away--Be positive
Step back and the answer for your problem may come to you
It's hard to pick my favorite character--But I think that it might be the Cowardly Lion--is that perhaps because I can see myself in him? I know that I often have to dig deep to do the hard stuff.

Who is your favorite character and why?

  1. My fav is the Scarecrow--for someone without a brain he had really good ideas.
