A Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke on myths, fear, struggle, strife, dificulty, and transformation

How should we be able to forget those ancient myths that are at the beginning of all peoples - those myths about dragons that at the last moment turn into princesses.  Perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses, only waiting to see us, once beautiful and brave.  Perhaps everything terrible in our lives is, in its deepest being, something helpless, that wants help from us.

Rainer Maria Rilke (1875 - 1926)
