Quote of the Day: Old Wine and Old Wives' Tales

Old wine is often all the better for being re-bottled;
perhaps old wives’ tales are like that, too.

—from "Big Claus and Little Claus"
by R. J. Yeatman and W. C. Sellar

Found in The Fairies Return: Or, New Tales for Old (Oddly Modern Fairy Tales). It was so charming, I didn't want to lose it in the long post about the book. It also opens up Maria Tatar's Introduction to the book.
