Truths that are beyond us

tumblr_nsua7dVp411s5fvc6o1_500There are truths, that are beyond us, transcendent truths, about beauty, truth, honor, etc. There are truths that man knows exist, but they cannot be seen – they are immaterial, but no less real, to us. It is only through the language of myth that we can speak of these truths.
–J. R. R. Tolkien
