“ The truth must be told. The word Dangerous...
Long ago it meant to protect, that literally you would say, ‘You stand in my danger’...
She is the one who takes care of, looks after those who have been conquered and she is the one who raises them back up again. She is not only passionate but she is observant and experienced - but she'll protect anything of goodness that has electricity in it, she will breathe on it and bring it back to life. Her home is in the soul and everything that comes from her is soulful as a result. ”

from Dangerous Old Woman - Clarissa Pinkola Estés
