"There are not many persons who know what wonders are opened to them
in the stories and visions of their youth; for when as children we learn and dream,
we think but half-formed thoughts, and when as men we try to remember,
we are dulled and prosaic with the poison of life.
But some of us awake in the night with strange phantasms of enchanted hills and gardens,
of fountains that sing in the sun, of golden cliffs overhanging murmuring seas,
of plains that stretch down to sleeping cities of bronze and stone,
and of shadowy companies of heroes that ride caparisoned white horses
along the edges of thick forests;
and then we know that we have looked back through the ivory gates into that world
of wonder which was ours before we were wise and unhappy."
- H.P. Lovecraft
