“Libraries were a perfect illustration of human’s search for truth and the frustration at never finding it.”
Jonathan Ryan, 3 Gates of the Dead

“I called out to the LORD, out of my distress, and he answered me; out of the belly of the dead I cried, and you heard my voice. For you cast me into the deep, into the heart of the seas, and the flood surrounded me.”
Jonathan Ryan, 3 Gates of the Dead
