Saturday Sayings – Inside

Saint George by Gustave Moreau. Español: San J...
Saint George by Gustave Moreau.

At last the dragon was wounded. It roared with pain and plunged at St. George, opening its great mouth close to the brave knight’s head.

St. George looked carefully, then struck with all his strength straight down inside the dragon’s throat, and it fell at the horse’s feet—dead.

St. George and the Dragon” retold by Esenwein and Stockard.

A classic tale with a classic lesson:

Face the enemy.

Look carefully.

You will find his weakest spot directly behind the smoke and the glare of teeth.
