4. "All day, the colours had been those of dusk, mist moving like a water creature across the great flanks of mountains possessed of ocean shadows and depths. Briefly visible above the vapour, Kanchenjunga was a far peak whittled out of ice, gathering the last of the night, a plume of snow blown high by the storms at its summit.Sai, sitting on the veranda, was reading an article about giant squid in an old National Geographic. Every now and then she looked up at Kanchenjunga, observed its wizard phosphorescence with a shiver. The judge sat at the far corner with his chessboard, playing against himself. Stuffed under his chair where she felt safe was Mutt the dog, snoring gently in her sleep. A single bald lightbulb dangled on a wire above. It was cold, but inside the house, it was still colder, the dark, the freeze, contained by stone walls several feet deep."

"Vielleicht, daß ich durch schwere Berge gehein harten Adern, wie ein Erz allein;und bin so tief, daß ich kein Ende seheund keine Ferne: alles wurde Näheund alle Nähe wurde Stein.Ich bin ja kein Wissender im Wehe,—so macht mich dieses große Dunkel klein;bist Du es aber: mach dich schwer, brich ein:daß deine ganze Hand an mir gescheheund ich an dir mit meinem ganzen Schrein.It's possible I'm moving through the hard veinsof heavy mountains, like the ore does, alone;I'm already so deep inside, I see no end in sight,and no distance: everything is getting nearand everything getting near is turning to stone.I still can't see very far yet into suffering,—so this vast darkness makes me small;are you the one: make yourself powerful, break in:so that your whole being may happen to me,and to you may happen, my whole cry."
Author: Rainer Maria Rilke

9. "In prehistoric times, early man was bowled over by natural events: rain, thunder, lightning, the violent shaking and moving of the ground, mountains spewing deathly hot lava, the glow of the moon, the burning heat of the sun, the twinkling of the stars. Our human brain searched for an answer, and the conclusion was that it all must be caused by something greater than ourselves - this, of course, sprouted the earliest seeds of religion. This theory is certainly reflected in faery lore. In the beautiful sloping hills of Connemara in Ireland, for example, faeries were believed to have been just as beautiful, peaceful, and pleasant as the world around them. But in the Scottish Highlands, with their dark, brooding mountains and eerie highland lakes, villagers warned of deadly water-kelpies and spirit characters that packed a bit more punch."

Five senses; an incurably abstract intellect; a haphazardly selective memory; a set of preconceptions and assumptions so numerous that I can never examine more than a minority of them - never become even conscious of them all."
