And then he realized the message of all these faces: Long he had struggled to free himself from his own curiosity. And the faces, which fed its fires, made him see, as his curiosity blazed up in him, that he could live with its brightness, enjoy the mysteries around him, and savor the unknown just for itself, with its strange, unidentifiable flavors.
