"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."
-Fred Alan Wolf

To learn to see- to accustom the eye to calmness, to patience, and to allow things to come up to it; to defer judgment, and to acquire the habit of approaching and grasping an individual case from all sides.

This is the first preparatory schooling of intellectuality.

One must not respond immediately to a stimulus; one must acquire a command of the obstructing and isolating instincts.
