Then the Lord himself spoke and said: "If you can grasp what is meant by this,
you will be delivered from the fear of Endings. So do not cease from searching.
Yet, remember this; when you find that for which you are looking, you will at
first be struck with horror and amazement. But after the horror will come
understanding; and in the end you will find yourself to be set apart, and
honoured above them all."
      -- The Gospel of St. Thomas (Apocryphal)
