But he knew now...

"But he knew now that those who questioned, those who took it all apart trying to find out what it was and what made it tick... they lost out in the end. The magic would always elude them. The mystery would only deepen. Because if it lost its secret, it just wouldn't be the mystery anymore. It would rob the experience of its potency. All you'd have left would be dry dust and the voices of men discussing what it was all about. The quiet, the music, the magic would be gone." -Charles de Lint; Greenmantle
