You’re actually getting two quotes for the price of one today, because I think they just complement each other so well:
“Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed.” -G. K. Chesterton
“Since it is so likely that children will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage.” -C. S. Lewis
I love these “twin quotes” on many levels: as a Christian, as a lover of fantasy, as a reader, as a writer, and as a teacher. The words make my heart swell and inspire me. Furthermore, I think these truths are important for adults, as well, and I hope they are an encouragement for you today.Published in
