Joseph Campbell from “Myths to Live By”

“Mythologies, in other words, mythologies and religions, are great poems and, when recognized as such, point infallibly through all things and events to the ubiquity of a ‘presence’ or ‘eternity’ that is whole and entire in each. In this function all mythologies, all great poetries, and all mystic traditions are in accord; and where any such inspiriting vision remains effective in a civilization, every thing and every creature within its range is alive.”

~ Joseph Campbell, “Myths to Live By”
