    Only what prepares it, only what destroys it can be told. - Gide, The Immortalist

    And if I speak to you outside of what I have written, these marginal comments cannot have the value of what I have written, these marginal comments cannot have the value of the work itself. - Hegel, 'Preface' to the Phenomenology of the Mind

    What is not herein described must be guessed. - Spare, The Grimoire of Zos
