Ci rivolgiamo a lettori che vogliano imparare qualcosa di nuovo, che dunque vogliano pure pensare da sé (K. Marx). – Chi non spera quello che non sembra sperabile non potrà scoprirne la realtà, poiché lo avrà fatto diventare, con il suo non sperarlo, qualcosa che non può essere trovato e a cui non porta nessuna strada (Eraclito). – ... se uno ha veramente a cuore la sapienza, non la ricerchi in vani giri, come di chi volesse raccogliere le foglie cadute da una pianta e già disperse dal vento, sperando di rimetterle sul ramo. La sapienza è una pianta che rinasce solo dalla radice, una e molteplice. Chi vuol vederla frondeggiare alla luce discenda nel profondo, là dove opera il dio, segua il germoglio nel suo cammino verticale e avrà del retto desiderio il retto adempimento: dovunque egli sia non gli occorre altro viaggio (M. Guidacci).
