It seems as if everything started going downhill for humankind as soon as we hit, what we thought would be, the roaring 20s. It’s impossible to read the news or even switch on the TV without feeling the weight of the world on our shoulders.


We decided to turn to Astrid Lindgren for consolation and compose a list of her most comforting quotes:

“I have never tried that before, so I think I should definitely be able to do it.”

― FROM PIPPI LONGSTOCKING

“Everything great that ever happened in this world happened first in somebody’s imagination.


“Give the children love, more love and still more love – and the common sense will come by itself.


“Come in or stay where you are, it’s entirely up to you,’ called Pippi. ‘I never force anyone!’’


“I have no message. But I would like to spread a general tolerance for human insanity.


“What the world of tomorrow will be like is greatly dependent on the power of imagination in those who are learning to read today.


“Don’t worry about me. I’ll always come out on top.”
