Aidan Kelly on Truth

Knowing that all truths are meerly metaphors is perhaps the greatest advantage you can have at this point in history. Thinking that you know the “Whole Truth” keeps you from learning anything more; hence you stagnate; hence you die. But knowing that every thruth is merely a metaphor, merely a tool, leaves you free to learn and grow, by setting aside old metaphors as you learn or evolve better ones.

Aidan Kelly, quoted in Margot Adler’s Drawing Down the Moon
