Damn the masks and damn the maskers,
Let all the puppeteers be gone from my sight.
I will stand on a tower of disguises,
And watch the collapse of the marionettes.

Then I will search among the debris for my heart,
And so be whole again.

Memento mori ...

Humanity is born in the dark, naked, close to the ground.
- John Carroll, The Western Dreaming

"I don't love you as if you were a rose of salt,
topaz or arrow of carnations that propagate fire:
I love you as one loves certain dark things,
secretly, between the shadow and the soul."

-Pablo Neruda, translated by Stgephen Tapscott
100 Love Sonnets

Plunge into matter. Plunge into God. By means of all created things, without exception, the divine assails us, penetrates us and molds us. We imagine it as distant and inaccessible, whereas in fact, we live steeped in its burning layers.

~Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
