The dragons in our lives

Could be (even though I know this is really, really hard with some people):

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

Rilke is the poet who so eloquently taught us that living the questions is really more important than searching for answers.
