‘The moment a dragon is slain’ Puppet Show (Paris 1963)
Brave and true will I be.
Each good deed sets me free.
Each kind word makes me strong.
I will fight for the right.
I will conquer the wrong.
— Charles Bukowski

"Let each one of us see in one another what is just and imbued with strength. Let strength generate and empower strength. Only then shall we move forward together." — Rudolf Steiner
Rudolf Steiner: "...for people to look back upon their childhood with joy. That is, however, precisely what human beings need. Throughout life, we need to be able to look back upon our childhood as something like a paradise."
Steadfastly I take my place on Earth
Certain as I walk through life
Strength pours into my heart
Love in the core of my being
Hope in all I do
Trust in all my thinking
These six go with me through life
