Hermit Magister, Part 7

"Knowing all these things [about the history of a place] means that even the most dull and ordinary little streets suddenly can take on a wealth of meaning. [...] I think that if we are to value the present and to really get as much as we can out of each present moment, it would help if we understood how this moment has arisen, if we understood the past, understood how incredibly rich and savage and beautiful our history can be."
-- Alan Moore in "The Dark Side of the Moore," as quoted by Omar Martini, pg. 112, in Alan Moore: Portrait of an Extraordinary Gentleman, edited by smoky man, Gary Spencer Millidge and Omar Martini, Abiogenesis Press, Leigh-on-Sea, England, 2003.
