tolle sätze (4)

they spread out their star-maps and read the heavens like a book. but they are the authors of the book, and the stars continue on their shadowy ways and have no inkling of its contents.

i too read in the book of the night, but I cannot interpret it. my wisdom shows me not only the writing, but also that it cannot be interpreted.
