"Most people, including ourselves, live in a world of relative ignorance. We are even comfortable with that ignorance, because it is all we know. When we first start facing truth, the process may be frightening, and many people run back to their old lives. But if you continue to seek truth, you will eventually be able to handle it better. In fact, you want more! It's true that many people around you now may think you are weird or even a danger to society, but you don't care. Once you've tasted the truth, you won't ever want to go back to being ignorant!" - Plato (The Republic)

"The seventh philosophical grade in Alchemy is that of the miracle:
The miracle comes forth from the persistence of the truth; I will clarify with an example. Once upon a time there was a philosopher condemned by a tyrant because he spoke the truth too often, the sentence was that the philosopher was to be put in a hole in the rocks and be pulverized slowly with iron instruments. But the philosopher called to the tyrant: 'beat me tyrant, by all means destroy my body, but my spirit is indestructable!' The tyrant got so enraged he gave the order to cut off the philosopher's tongue. But the philosopher bit it off himself and spat it in the tyrant's face. So witness, what wonderful persistence of a man who even under such martyrdom went into death with such joy and conquered the forcefulness of the world."
