Thursday's Quotable: G. K. Chesterton on Fairy Tales

"Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten."
((except for maybe Trogdor))
-G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936)

(found in the beginning pages of Coraline by Neil Gaiman, 2002, 1st edition. [not the image, just the quote. Minus the Trogdor bit too, of course].)


  1. When we defeat the dragons that assault us from within do we gain the greatest victory. ;D

  2. Burninating the peasants! :D

    Stunning picture!
