Thoughts on Reading

The best myths are not deliberately constructed falsehoods but are rather tales woven by people to capture the echos of deeper truths. Myths offer a fragment of that truth, not its totality. They’re like splintered fragments of the true light, yet when the full and true story is told it is able to bring to fulfillment all that was right and wise in those fragmentary visions of things.
