Quotes – Ursula Le Guin Again

Dragon

“For fantasy is true, of course. It isn’t factual, but it is true. Children know that. Adults know it too, and that is precisely why many of them are afraid of fantasy. They know that its truth challenges, even threatens all that is false, all that is phony, unnecessary, and trivial in the life they have let themselves be forced into living. They are afraid of dragons, because they are afraid of freedom.”

Ursula Le Guin 1929-2018

I write fantasy. This is spot on, and I have nothing that I can add.
