There is an inmost centre in us all, where truth abides in fullness; and around, wall up wall, the gross flesh hems it in, this perfect, clear perception-which is truth. A baffling and perverting carnal mesh binds it, and makes all error: and to know rather consists in opening out a way, whence the imprisoned splendour may escape, Than in effecting entry for a light Supposed to be without.
~Robert Browning
