Best quote from the best "gothic western" ever:

"The truth about the world, he said, is that anything is possible. Had
you not seen it all from birth and thereby bled it of its strangeness
it would appear to you for what it is, a hat trick in a medicine show,
a fevered dream, a trance bepopulate with chimeras having neither
analogue nor precedent, an itinerant carnival, a migratory tentshow
whose ultimate destination after many a pitch in many a mudded field
is unspeakable and calamitous beyond reckoning.

The universe is no narrow thing and the order within it is not
constrained by any latitude in its conception to repeat what exists in
one part in any other part. Even in this world more things exist
without our knowledge than with it and the order in creation which you
see is that which you have put there, like a string in a maze, so that
you shall not lose your way. For existence has its own order and that
no man's mind can compass, that mind itself being but a fact among
others."
