The Retrospect Express
"We wouldn't have to sacrifice anything, if everything we did, heard and said were True; if we were always ready to accept the mazes of lies and play by them soulfully with faith, knowing that eventually the conscience would always lead to the Truth, that is to be illuminated. That is what this story is about. And that, my dear Reader, is how the Truth shall set us free . . . "
- The Author, Chapter XV "The Retrospect Express"
“Simply myself. I know my own heart and understand my fellow man. But I am made unlike no one in the whole world. I may be no better, but at least I am different. Whether Nature did well or
ill in breaking the mould in which she formed me, is a question which can only be resolved after reading of my book.”
–Confessions, Jean-Jacques Rousseau
