“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.”

Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

    1. Perhaps more true had he said “some of the dragons” instead of “all.”

      Perhaps some dragons are just dragons . . . allowing us a chance to practice our sword wielding and dragon slaying ability.

      Or to remind us not all is fair in the world.

      Rilke would have been fun to debate with. Perhaps? 🙂
