Whoever will know the world will find a corpse; and who finds a corpse will have the world not worthy of him.

See the smoke trembling under the roof as if with fright? Yet when it gets out in the air, it has the whole sky to swirl about in. But it doesn’t know that, so it huddles and trembles in the soot under the roof. It’s the same with people. They quiver like a leaf in the storm, afraid of what they know and what they don’t know. - The Virgin Spring (1960)
