the life of symbols

‘We believe that we invent symbols. The truth is that they invent us; we are their creatures, shaped by their hard defining edges. …it is a profound mistake to believe that we must know of such things to be influenced by them, and in fact to believe so is the most debased and superstitious kind of magic. The would–be sorcerer alone has faith in the efficacy of pure knowledge; rational people know that things act of themselves or not at all.’

—Gene Wolfe, The Shadow of the Torturer
