The Dark Labyrinth

“We act our inner symbolism outward into the world. In a very real sense we do create the world around us since we get it to reflect back our inner symbolism at us. Every man carries a little myth-making machine inside him which operates often without him knowing it. Thus you might say that we live by a very exacting kind of poetic logic – since we get exactly what we ask for, no more and no less.”
– Lawrence Durrell, The Dark Labyrinth
