Quote from Bruno Bettelheim,

"This is exactly the message that fairy tales get across to the child in manifold form: that a struggle against severe difficulties in life is unavoidable, is an intrinsic part of human existence-but that if one does not shy away, but steadfastly meets unexpected and often unjust hardships, one masters all obstacles and at the end emerges victorious."


Bruno Bettelheim (more quotes by Bruno Bettelheim or books by/about Bruno Bettelheim)

(1903-1990) Austrian-born American child psychologist, writer
