A quote to savor

“… that dark grope toward truth that lies at the heart of being human.”

This resonant quote is from The Magnetic North: Notes from the Arctic Circle by Sara Wheeler. In my opinion the phrase can stand on its own, but it is excerpted from Wheeler’s longer description of the Solovki islands in the White Sea.

For me the phrase has meaning that transcends its context. It has haunted me since I read it a few years ago. I wouldn’t be surprised if it means something different to each reader.

A quote to savor on a Sunday afternoon.
