“Nous passons tous, sans cesse, par des seuils initiatiques. Chaque accident, chaque incident, chaque joie et chaque souffrance est une initiation. Et la lecture d’un beau livre, la vue d’un grand paysage peuvent l’être aussi.

-Marguerite Yourcenar.

My rough translation:

We are all, constantly crossing thresholds. Every accident, every incident, all joy and suffering is an initiation. And reading a good book, taking in a magnificent landscape can be this too.
