Thank you for placing that for me. I had believed it was used in "Power of Myth" but was unsure. Your comment about it being a fav. saying is lovely. It certainly is useful as a masker. I plan on painting it as mural quote in my booth at our Renaissance Festival. Yes I most certainly am familar with...
