to allow mystery

Friday, October 19, 2007

“To allow mystery, which is to say to yourself, ‘There could be more, there could be things we don’t understand,’ is not to damn knowledge. It is to take a wider view. It is to permit yourself an extraordinary freedom: someone else does not have to be wrong in order that you may be
right.”

Barry Lopez, Of Wolves and Men
