In the cave

Found at  ineffableobservatory

Beware of anything that promises freedom or enlightenment —traps for eager and clever fools — a dog has a keener nose — every creature in a cave can justify himself. Three-fourths of philosophy and literature is the talk of people trying to convince themselves that they really like the cave they were tricked into entering.

– Gary Snyder, Earth House Hold
