How very special are we, for just a moment to be
Part of life’s eternal rhyme
How very special are we, to have on our family tree
Mother Earth, and Father Time
(Charlotte’s Web, 1973)

Rest In Peace Debbie Reynolds

Debbie Reynolds Tribute Meme

Singin’ in the Rain

  • “What do you have to be so conceited about? You’re nothing but a shadow on film… just a shadow. You’re not flesh and blood.”
  • “Are you sure it’s alright? Being seen with me?”

The Unsinkable Molly Brown

  • “Sure I may be tuckered, and I may give out, but I won’t give in.”
  • “I mean more to me than I mean to anybody else.”
  • “What’s that mean? Best regards?”

Halloweentown ( series )

  • “Being normal is vastly overrated.”
  • “Magic is really very simple, all you’ve got to do is want something, and then let yourself have it.”
  • “I’ve always said that the movies could teach us so much.”

You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing. I wove my webs for you because I liked you. After all, what’s a life, anyway? We’re born, we live a little while, we die. A spider’s life can’t help being something of a mess, with all this trapping and eating flies. By helping you, perhaps I was trying to lift up my life a trifle. Heaven knows anyone’s life can stand a little of that.

Rest in peace, Debbie Reynolds
‘Why did you do all this for me?’ he asked.’I don’t deserve it. I’ve never done anything for you.’ ‘You have been my friend,’ replied Charlotte. ‘That in itself is a tremendous thing.’
