"Through the aid of the doctor I began slowly to perceive the possibility
of penetrating deeper than the shard of things without the help, so dearly
bought, of hasheesh. Taking up, for instance, the subject of a spirit
which works throughout all creation, by which the most microscopic
plant-filament, no less than the grandest mountain, is inwrought and
informed, we often talked together in parables, which, however, were never
obscure to us, since we possessed that best dictionary of meanings, the
bond of a close, congenial sympathy."
