dragons can be beaten bookmark

hmmm... another Neil Gaiman inspired project for me. The Skillshare community is going to think I have a "mancrush" soon. But I've always liked this quote and I think it would be cool to directly tie it into being a bookmark. Thank you to the comments on one of the other student projects about creating a bookmark. It got the wheels rolling in my head.

The quote is from the opening pages to Coraline. I couldn't remember the exact wording so after doing the Google dance, I discovered that Gaiman actually paraphrased the original G. K. Chesterson quote. (I always thought it was Chesterson's words.)

But I like Gaiman's wording better. The beginning is more concise and the ending is more open. So I'm going with this. I guess you just want to know what the quote is:

Fairy tales are more than true – not because they tell us dragons exist, but because they tell us dragons can be beaten. -Neil Gaiman
