Quotation of the Week

“How could we be capable of forgetting the old myths that stand at the threshold of all mankind,
myths of dragons transforming themselves at the last moment into princesses?
Perhaps all dragons in our lives are really princesses just waiting to see us just once being beautiful and courageous.  Perhaps everything fearful is basically helplessness that seeks our help.”
--Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters To a Young Poet

= Available at Sembach Library

Sonder is a German prefix meaning "special."
