“An interesting fiction [...]however paradoxical the assertion may appear [...]addresses our love of truth -- not the mere love of facts expressed by true names and dates, but the love of that higher truth, the truth of nature and principals, which is a primitive law of the human mind.”
-James Fenimore Cooper
