This quote may contradict my thoughts in a recent blog post - or it may be a different way to view them. Either way, when I opened this book (from this series) I got from the library yesterday, it was what greeted me on the opening page:

-Rebecca West, The Fountain Overflows (1956)
Isn't that why we're drawn to this magnificent art form? It's difficult to think of a better way to put it.
