Here is what Vytautas Kernagis says about his relationship to Hans Christian Andersen:
"When (and if) you're angry - read Andersen.
When (and if) you're sad - read Andersen.
When (and if) you feel you've already grown up - read Andersen.
When everything is going maddeningly wrong for you (or going maddeningly very well) - read Andersen. He's worth it.
Andersen - he's a holiday that's always with you!"
