Here are the top most famous quotes by Michael Morpurgo.

  • Access to books and the encouragement of the habit of reading: these two things are the first and most necessary steps in education and librarians, teachers and parents all over the country know it. It is our children's right and it is also our best hope and their best hope for the future.
  • One of the great failings of our education system is that we tend to focus on those who are succeeding in exams, and there are plenty of them. But what we should also be looking at, and a lot more urgently, is those who fail.
  • A lot of children, like I did, move away from words because of the fear - which is something you have to take out of education: the fear of worrying about what marks you'll get, detention, worrying about letting people down, your parents, teachers.
  • Admitting failure is quite cleansing, but never - pleasurable.
  • Don't worry about writing a book or getting famous or making money. Just lead an interesting life.
  • Animals are sentient, intelligent, perceptive, funny and entertaining. We owe them a duty of care as we do to children.
  • Strange questions are the more interesting ones. Children by and large don't try to trip you up... they want to find out how you do this funny thing that you do... if they've loved a story they love to know how it started.
  • It is the child's understanding that teaches the adults the way of the future. They're still doing it today with modern technology.
  • Wherever my story takes me, however dark and difficult the theme, there is always some hope and redemption, not because readers like happy endings, but because I am an optimist at heart. I know the sun will rise in the morning, that there is a light at the end of every tunnel.
  • Everyone is interested in war, in that people don't want it to happen. I'm much more interested in peace than in war but it's important to understand why we fight.
