"The goal was comprehension, and the only way to comprehend the world was by making myself vulnerable to it so that it would change me. The challenge was to lay myself open to everybody and everything that came my way. The prize was to change and grow big enough to feel one with the whole world. The real danger...was death by exposure...." Ted Simon- "Jupiter's travels"
"Let thy chief terror be of thine own soul. There, 'mid the throng of hurring desires, That trample on the dead to seize their spoil, Lurks vengence, footless, irresistable, As exhaualtations laden with slow death, And o'er the fairest troop of captured joys Breathes pallid pestilence."
