Random quote of the day:

“The pendulum of the mind oscillates between sense and nonsense, not between right and wrong. The numinosum is dangerous because it lures men to extremes, so that a modest truth is regarded as the truth and a minor mistake is equated with fatal error. Tout passe— yesterday’s truth is today’s deception, and yesterday’s false inference may be tomorrow’s revelation.”

—Carl Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections
