night sky_2The best things can’t be told because they transcend thought.

The second best are misunderstood, because those are the thoughts that are supposed to refer to that which can’t be thought about.

The third best are what we talk about.

– Immanuel Kant (from “The Power of Myth” by Joseph Campbell)
