“Solving a problem for which you know there’s an answer is like climbing a mountain with a guide, along a trail someone else has laid. In mathematics, the truth is somewhere out there in a place no one knows, beyond all the beaten paths. And it’s not always at the top of the mountain. It might be in a crack on the smoothest cliff or somewhere deep in the valley.”

― Yoko Ogawa, The Housekeeper and the Professor

And then her heart changed, or at least she understood it; and the winter passed, and the sun shone upon her.”

― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King
