There's an old Hungarian expression: "It's better to fear than to become frightened." Siegfried, the hero of German mythology and Wagner's opera, is primarily famous precisely for knowing no fear. A high-spirited son of the forest and a friend of the wild animals living in it, this enormously strong young lad is not somebody one would want to tangle with. Few people in today's world bear much resemblance to him. Nevertheless, we are all Siegfrieds in a certain sense in that most of us have trouble discovering who we really are, and it is only as we travel down the path of life that we gradually learn what we are truly capable of.
