The fate of destruction is also the joy of rebirth.
新世紀エヴァンゲリオン劇場版 (The End of Evangelion), 1997; dir. Hideaki Anno
Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.
— Rainer Maria Rilke
