You can find the entire cosmos lurking in its least remarkable objects.
Let the people who never find true love keep saying that there's no such thing. Their faith will make it easier for them to live and die.
Any knowledge that doesn't lead to new questions quickly dies out: it fails to maintain the temperature required for sustaining life.
Every beginning is only a sequel, after all, and the book of events is always open halfway through.
