QUOTE: Herbert Mason

“He looked at the walls,
Awed at the heights
His people had achieved
And for a moment — just a moment —
All that lay behind him
Passed from view.”

Gilgamesh: A Verse Narrative by Herbert Mason

Herbert MasonHerbert Mason’s writing in his interpretation of The Epic of Gilgamesh is simultaneously simple and striking. I love this quote because it really captures the impact that others can unknowingly have on something. It also suggests that healing and recovering from a bad experience is certainly possible with time, support, and awareness. I definitely recommend this epic story! (If you’re interested, you can read my review of it here!)
