"The shape of the labyrinth. The shape of the cave. Space divided and not divided. Space mutable, we say, separation becoming union. space changing. The new shape. Melting and transformation, the crystal and the seed, the endless possibility of form..."
Susan Griffin, Woman and Nature
"The fable of Proteus has a cordial truth. A leaf, a drop, a crystal, a moment of time is related to the whole and partakes of the perfection of the whole. Each particle is a microcosm, and faithfully renders the likeness of the world."
Ralph Waldo Emerson excerpt from, The Portable Emerson
