“Rationalism and doctrinairism are the disease of our time; they pretend to have all the answers. . . In view of all this, I lend an attentive ear to the strange myths of the psyche, and take a careful look at the varied events that come my way. . .
Unfortunately, the mythic side of man is given short shrift nowadays. He can no longer create fables. As a result, a great deal escapes him; for it is important and salutary to speak also of incomprehensible things. Such talk is like the telling of a good ghost story, as we sit by the fireside and smoke a pipe.”
