Got Me Thinking Today

"Fairy tales do not tell children that dragons exist.
Children already know that.
Fairy tales tell children that dragons can be killed."
~ G.K. Chesterton

"We talk of lost ideals, but perhaps they are not lost, only changed; when our ideal for ourselves and for our children becomes limited to prosperity and comfort, we get these, very likely, for ourselves and for them, but we get no more."— Charlotte Mason

I love that Chesterton quote! I may have to borrow it some time.

Okay, the Chesterton quote got me a little choked up.
