Old Jun 4th, 2005, 05:03 PM        Need help to locate source of Chesterton and Picasso quotes
Don't know if this is the right forum, but here goes.

I'm writing a paper on movies as contemporary mythology, and want to use the Chesterton quote "Fairy tales are more than true. Not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be defeated." Problem is, I need a book and a page number. Does anyone here have any idea? The same goes for Picassos "Art is a lie that makes us realise the truth."

Never rely on quotes from the internet.

Well, if Helm posted an answer, that would be quite different from a reply from Wiffles. I'm asking for a hard answer from people I trust.

And I know the quotes are real, I just have them from forewords to fictional books, and those don't quote their sources in the back.

It isn't. I was looking for the source of the Chesterton quote, and then I found that page and thought "Hey, that other one could work as well."

I did find the source of the Picasso one, though.
