Every branch of human knowledge if traced up to its source and final principles vanishes into mystery.

Arthur Machen Knowledge Quote

If a man dreams that he has committed a sin before which the sun hid his face it is often safe to conjecture that in sheer forgetfulness he wore a red tie or brown boots with evening dress.

It is all nonsense to be sure and so much the greater nonsense inasmuch as the true interpretation of many dreams – not by any means of all dreams – moves it may be said in the opposite direction to the method of psycho-analysis.

Now everybody I suppose is aware that in recent years the silly business of divination by dreams has ceased to be a joke and has become a very serious science.
