The mind of the believer grows stagnate. It fails to grow outward into an unlimited, infinite universe. -Heretics of Dune, by Frank Herbert

Here is one of my absolute most favorite quotes. It’s suggestive of how we should never ‘settle’ with thinking we know things, that we should always be learning and growing and evolving. At least, that’s how I take it.

Quotable

…between ‘reality’ on the one hand, and the point where the mind strikes reality, there’s a middle zone, a rainbow edge where beauty comes into being, where two very different surfaces mingle and blur to provide what ife does not: and this is the space where all art exists, and all magic.” -The Goldfinch, by Donna Tart

I am not one of those, for wisdom and I have always been at cross-purposes, and I have yet to learn the tongue in which she speaks. Some men, as they age, grow more cynical. I, fortunately, am not one of those. If I were, the very air would warp around me, sucking in all emotion, leaving only scorn.” He tapped the table. “Other men … other men, as they age, merely grow stranger.
