Perhaps fantasy is what you fill up maps with rather than saying that they too contain the unknown." - Rebecca Solnit

"No man can reveal to you aught but that which already lies half asleep in the dawning of your knowledge. The teacher who walks in the shadow of the temple, among his followers, gives not of his wisdom but rather of his faith and his lovingness.
