sanctum sanctorum 

"Finally he said that men drink the blood of God yet they do not understand the seriousness of what they do. He said that men wish to be taken serious but they do not understand how to be so. Between their acts and their cerimonies lies the world and in this world the storms blow and the trees twist in the wind all the animals that God has made go to and fro yet this world they do not see. They see the acts of their own hands or they see that which they name and call out to one another but the world between is invisible to them."

There did not appear to be any immediate conservation threat to the area, which has the status of a wildlife sanctuary, he said.

"No logging permits are given to this area, there is no transport system — not a single road," Beehler said.

"But clearly, with time, everything is a threat. In the next few decades there will be strong demands, especially if you think of the timber needs of nearby countries like China and Japan. They will be very hungry for logs."

"You catch the snowflake but when you look in your hand you don't have it no more. Maybe you see this dechado. But before you can see it it is gone. If you want to see it you have to see it on its own ground. If you catch it you loose it. And where it goes there is no coming back from. Not even God can bring it back."

Quoted: Cormac McCarthy, The Crossing


Far out on the desert to the north dustspouts rose wobbling and augered the earth and some said they'd heard of pilgrims borne aloft like dervishes in those mindless coils to be dropped broken and bleeding upon the desert again and there perhaps to watch the thing that had destroyed them lurch onward like some drunken djinn and resolve itself once more into the elements from which it sprang. Out of that whirlwind no voice spoke and the pilgrim lying in his broken bones may cry out and in his anguish he may rage, but rage at what? And if the dried and blackened shell of him is found among the sands by travelers to come yet who can discover the engine of his ruin? ~ Cormac McCarthy Blood Meridian
