‘Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist…’

“Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed.” – G.K. Chesterton

“Gilbert Keith Chesterton, KC*SG (29 May 1874 – 14 June 1936), better known as G. K. Chesterton, was an English writer, poet, philosopher, dramatist, journalist, orator, lay theologian, biographer, and literary and art critic. Chesterton is often referred to as the ‘prince of paradox.’ Time magazine has observed of his writing style: ‘Whenever possible Chesterton made his points with popular sayings, proverbs, allegories—first carefully turning them inside out.'” (Wikipedia)
