71 years ago today, the musical fantasy film, “The Wizard of Oz” hit the screens, and people from all over the world have not only been enjoying it ever since, but also taking in its wisdom.
Here, platters full of wisdom.
Quotes from the Wizard of Oz:
Wizard of Oz: A heart is not judged by how much you love; but by how much you are loved by others.
Dorothy: How can you talk if you haven’t got a brain?
Scarecrow: I don’t know… But some people without brains do an awful lot of talking… don’t they?
Dorothy: Yes, I guess you’re right.
Dorothy: What would you do with a brain if you had one?
Wizard of Oz: You, my friend, are a victim of disorganized thinking. You are under the unfortunate impression that just because you run away you have no courage; you’re confusing courage with wisdom.
Dorothy: I’ve got a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.
Wicked Witch of the West: Who ever thought a little girl like you could destroy my beautiful wickedness?
Scarecrow: I could while away the hours/conferrin’ with the flowers/consultin’ with the rain/And my head I’d be scratchin’/ While my thoughts were busy hatchin’/If I only had a brain.
Wizard of Oz: Why, anybody can have a brain. That’s a very mediocre commodity. Every pusillanimous creature that crawls on the Earth or slinks through slimy seas has a brain. Back where I come from, we have universities, seats of great learning, where men go to become great thinkers. And when they come out, they think deep thoughts and with no more brains than you have. But they have one thing you haven’t got: a diploma.
Dorothy: Well, we’re not living in a trailer park, so we’ll be all right.
Glinda, the Good Witch of the North: You have no power here! Now begone, before somebody drops a house on you!
