OUR PAST IS NEVER DEAD. IT'S NOT EVEN PAST. ALL OF US LABOR IN WEBS SPUN LONG BEFORE WE WERE BORN, WEBS OF HEREDITY AND ENVIRONMENT, OF DESIRE AND CONSEQUENCE, OF HISTORY AND ETERNITY. HAUNTED BY WRONG TURNS AND ROADS NOT TAKEN, WE PURSUE IMAGES PERCEIVED AS NEW BUT WHOSE PROVIDENCE DATES TO THE DIM DRAMAS OF CHILDHOOD, WHICH ARE THEMSELVES BUT RIPPLES OF CONSEQUENCE ECHOING DOWN THE GENERATIONS.
-WILLIAM FAULKNER, Requiem for a Nun
