“The more one knows fairy tales the less fantastical they appear; they can be vehicles of the grimmest realism, expressing hope against all the odds with gritted teeth.”
Marina Warner, From the Beast to the Blonde: On Fairy Tales and Their Tellers

“I do not care what comes after; I have seen the dragons on the wind of morning.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Farthest Shore

“Only what is mortal bears life, Arren. Only in death is there rebirth. The Balance is not a stillness. it is a movement--an eternal becoming.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Farthest Shore
