"Fairy tales are more than true, not because they tell us dragons exist but because they tell us dragons can be beaten.” G.K. Chesterton
This is an excellent quote. It will be featured in my new book in a chapter discussing personal mythologies. Our belief systems allow us access to strength, wisdom, and clarity otherwise unavailable to the limited ego-centric mind. Symbols, when used properly, create footholds and help us to navigate the murky waters of the inner landscape.
