“Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.’
– G.K. Chesterton

I adore this quote! The dragon imagery is probably quite a big factor in that…but the thought behind it is brilliant as well. I find it so interesting when I look back on all of the books I’ve read and what I’ve learnt from them. Sometimes you don’t even realise it’s happening until you look back years later, but there are characters that have taught me courage, characters that have shown me the power of perseverance, and characters who have helped me understand that it’s okay to get knocked down as long as you get back up again. All great life lessons! I like to think I carry a little piece of them with me everywhere I go. 🙂
Are there any particular books that have taught you valuable life lessons?
