|“Man is not |
an omnipotent master of the universe,
allowed to do with impunity
whatever he thinks,
or whatever suits him at the moment.
The world we live in is made
of an immensely complex and mysterious tissue
about which we know very little
and which we must treat with utmost humility.”
|Although it is most unlikely they do exist,|
to all those who happen to not being
in possession of the master's complete œvre:
Saddle your ponies, folks, and hurry up.
The friendly, most well-educated
and -sorted bookseller just round the corner
will be happy to fill the gaps of your education
and in your bookshelf.
