“For us, the Gentle People have no longer a life common with our own.
They have gone beyond the grey hills. They dwell in far islands perhaps where
the rains of Heaven and the foam of the sea guard their fading secrecies.”
The Winged Destiny
“…we shall only be delivered from our afflictions by sayings and doings
that are altogether irrational, paradoxical, and magical: the wild songs of
fairyland, sung to unearthly tones, are the only medicine for the heartache
and the headache of humanity.”
