Whole Show's On Fire

If the landscape reveals one certainty, it is that the extravagant gesture is the very stuff of creation. After the one extravagant gesture of creation in the first place, the universe has continued to deal exclusively in extravagances, flinging intricacies and colossi down aeons of emptiness…. The whole show has been on fire from the word go.

- Annie Dillard, Pilgrim at  Tinker Creek (HarperCollins, 2007), p. 11.
