Sum of Things

At Easter time they hide coloured eggs about the house and the garden that the children may amuse themselves in hunting them and finding them. It is to some such game of hide-and-seek that we are invited by that power which planted in us the desire to find out what is concealed, and stored the universe with hidden things that we might delight ourselves in discovering them . . . . The sum of things to be known is inexhaustible, and however long we read we shall never come to the end of our story-book.
A. E. Housman (1859-1936)
