What Use Are Fairy Tales?

G.K. Chesterton knew.

 

Done in Inkscape; actually finished months ago then forgotten about while I moved on to other projects.

 

...and apparently the source I got this from is mis-quoting Chesterton. A number of internet sources agree that what he actually said was, "Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten."

 

Nevertheless, the sentiment holds.
