Dragons & Princesses

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

    I loved your quote and I copied it onto facebook. I’m a teacher in Italy and I’ve asked my students to translate it. There’s a lot to be learned from that quote. Namely for me anyhow is that it is US, we who thoughtfully make the decision to ACT in the way we should. Sometimes I think in life we all get on random paths, whatever it may be. I belive that by conciously and repetetively acting correctly it might just become a habit that others follow.
    Much love to you today.

    I wanna take that quote and curl up with it by a cozy fire and meditate on it for a really long time. Then I wanna get up and live life with it always on my mind.
