Dragon quotes

You were born in the (Chinese) Year of the Dragon. In the absence of a foolish St. George, the alleged and misled dragon-slayer, how could you, a mere human, be described? A metaphysical ‘dragon,’ or a confused person flitting between sky and sea, or a ‘wannabe’ dragon hoping to burn your enemies? Speaking for myself, in the latter circumstances, I would prefer to dislodge my enemy’s ‘family jewels’, and wait for the tinkling sound as they hit the ground. Is this dragon-speak?

Here are a few thought-provoking quotes.

O to be a dragon,

a symbol of the power of Heaven — of silkworm

size or immense; at times invisible.

Felicitous phenomenon!

MARIANNE MOORE, O To Be a Dragon

 

If you want to conquer the world, you best have dragons.

GEORGE R. R. MARTIN, A Dance With Dragons

 

If the sky could dream, it would dream of dragons.

LLONA ANDREWS, Fate’s Edge

 

Never laugh at live dragons.

R. R. TOLKIEN, The Hobbit

 

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you art crunchy and good with ketchup.

ANONYMOUS

 

If you see the dragon fly,

best you drink the flagon dry.

GREG HAMERTON, Second Sigh
