Daz schuof iedoch ein wse man,
daz alter guot solde hn.
jugent ht vil werdekeit,
daz alter siuften unde leit.
ez enwart nie niht als unfruot,
s alter unde armuot.

--
Bk. 1, st. 5, line 11; p. 17

op si kiusche ist unde guot.

...she recreated the mountains not as she had originally seen them but as she eventually chose to perceive them, not only a capacity to observe the world but a capacity to alter his or her observation of it which, in the end, is the capacity to alter the world, itself. Those people who recognise that imagination is reality's master, we call "sages," and those who act upon it, we call "artists."

 
Tom Robbins
