Experimentation is a good thing

I rarely read novels any more. I always seem to have too much on my mind to be able to concentrate. Nevertheless I recently read a couple - 'Perfume' by Peter Suskind - a disturbing tour de force of lateral creativity, and Bram Stoker's 'Dracula'. I enjoyed 'Dracula' to begin with, but after a while, I have to be honest, I started to root for the monster. Anyway, the reason I mention it is this:

'I heard once of an American who so defined faith: "that which enables us to believe things which we know to be untrue." For one, I follow that man. He meant that we should have an open mind, and not let a little bit of truth check the rush of a big truth.' - Stoker's character Professor van Helsing
