Having Tea With Cassie Nightingale

Sitting in Grey House in front of The Grey Lady’s painting hanging above the fireplace, I ask the one and only Cassie Nightingale if she would be so kind as to share her pearls of wisdom with the world. Here is her answer:

“Sometimes silence is wisdom’s best answer.”

(Translating a Chinese scroll) “He who wishes to fight must first count the cost.”

“Sometimes you need to keep going even in the face of doubt.”

“Courage is being afraid and doing it anyway.”

“Trust the truth will show itself.”

“Sometimes the journey is the destination.”

“I always think the most important thing is not where you spend your time, but how you intend on spending it.”

“Fate plays a role in everything.”

“I love the past, but I have found more joy focusing on the here and now.”

“Don’t let anyone dull your sparkle.”

“Forget all the reasons it won’t work, and believe the one reason why it will.”

“Belief is a wish you make happen.”

“A new step in the right direction doesn’t have to be perfect, it just has to be a step.”

“If you make up your mind that you want something, all the obstacles seem to vanish.”

“I believe the right people always show up when you need them most.”

“”Sometimes the words find you.”

“The best gifts are the least expected.”

“You can travel a great distance by sitting very still and thinking deep thoughts.”

“There are gifts everywhere if you’re ready to receive them.”

“Real magic takes time and love.”

“Things are rarely as they first appear.”

“Sometimes nonsense makes the most sense.”

“Be careful what you believe because that is the world you create for yourself.”

“I think knowing how to share our gifts with the world is as important as recognizing what gifts you have to share.”

“Forgiveness is like love, if it isn’t unconditional, it doesn’t work.”

Thank you Cassie Nightingale for giving us years of entertainment, moments of happy tears and wholesome cheesiness when we need it most!

Okay, she is only in my living room through the magic of television and the conversation above is completely fabricated because, you  know, she’s fictional, but these are a few of my favourite Cassie quotes.

The Good Witch is my absolute favourite cheesey movie/TV show and perks me up with wholesomeness when the world seems hopeless. I was sad to see the show go, but Catherine Bell (who plays Cassie) said it perfectly in a post finale interview when she quoted Dr. Seuss saying “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile Because it happened.”

If you’re a fan of The Good Witch, Share your favourite quotes in the comments and I will add them to this page.

Many blessings,

Lady Black
