"For all things bear witness to one another and indicate one another"

- Moses Maimonides, Guide of the Perplexed

"E quindi uscimmo a riveder le stelle."

- Dante, Inferno

"Everything was in its place, despite the insanity that had mauled their lives of late, and though she hurried him on, he dawdled, his head back, squinting at the stars. There were no revelations to be had there. Just pinpricks of light in a plain heaven. But he saw for the first time how fine that was. That in a world full of loss and rage they be remote:the minimum of glory. As she led him across the lightless ground, time and again he could not prevent his gaze from straying skyward."

-Clive Barker, The Damnation Game
