A Quote I Love

“A riddle is a tale so familiar you no longer see it; it’s simply there, like the air you breathe, the ancient names of Kings echoing in the corners of your house, the sunlight in the corner of your eye; until one day you look at it and something shapeless, voiceless in you opens a third eye and sees it as you have never seen it before. The you are left with the knowledge of the nameless question in you, and the tale that is no longer meaningless but the one thing in the world that has meaning anymore.”

- Raederle, Heir of Sea and Fire by Patricia McKillip
