“Do you see that kitten chasing so prettily her own tail? If you could look with her eyes, you might see her surrounded with hundreds of figures performing complex dramas, with tragic and comic issues, long conversations, many characters, many ups and downs of fate,and meantime it is only puss and her tail.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
