Sortes Virgilianae (Puppets of Sentiment)

Opening library books at random as a means of work avoidance pulls up little opals like this:
“If we should laugh at and insult the memory of the Puppet, we should be laughing at the fall that we have brought about in ourselves, laughing at the Beliefs and Images we have broken.”

E. Gordon Craig, 1912
