The Great Dream

File:I dream of the beautiful, the great unknown, by Kilburn, B. W. (Benjamin West), 1827-1909.jpg

Not many people are permitted to dream

the Great Dream;

imaginings of money, power, success–these are the common inheritance of mankind, but the desire to heal at the root, to understand the workings of the world even to their finest detail, to express the strangeness and the good of our lives–that is dangerous. Such dreamers–not different from angels–are hidden, and find their friends in those who let them work out their beauty in peace and in chaos. They risk everything–and something more.
