„The result of the struggle between the thought and the ability to express it, between dream and reality, is seldom more than a compromise or an approximation.“

—  Terry Gilliam American-born British screenwriter, film director, animator, actor and member of the Monty Python comedy troupe 1940

Contexto: We read Dover Books, because you can steal from them. The medieval imagery and iconography is so good for the imagination. Trying to describe the world, trying to describe the cosmos, trying to put it down in neat orderly fashion, unlike reality. And it always seems to stick in one's mind more than reality does.
