Abukasem the Greedy Perfumer“How difficult is to accept the unknown! We each carry inside ourselves a punctilious tyrant who thinks that which he cannot explain to himself is something made up, and therefore inadmissible.

There are certain people who would, in the event that an angel appeared in front of them, demand a feather from his wings to use as a decoration for the living-room. Nevertheless, today I do know that far beyond what is believed to be real and what’s is assumed to be a fruit of the imagination, the most desirable door of the world is to be found. That door leads to the garden of life, a paradise that those thirsty for proof will never know of.”

Luis Ansa, The Seven Feathers of the Eagle.
