Oh poor unthinking human heart! Error will not go away. Logic and reason are slow to penetrate. We cling both arms to false hopes, refusing to believe the weightiest proof against it, embracing it with all our strength. In the end, it escapes, ripping our veins and draining our heart’s blood; until regaining consciousness, we rush to fall into the snares of delusion all over again.
~Rabindranath Tagore (The Postmaster)
