Here are two quotes from the same book
"My needlepoint teacher suffered from a problem of vision. She recognised things according to expectation and environment. If you were in a particular place, you expected to see a particular thing. Sheep and hills, sea and fish; if there was an elephant in the supermarket, she'd either not see it at all or call it Mrs. Jones and talk about fishcakes. But most likely she'd do what most people do when confronted with something they don't understand: Panic."
"Of course people mutilate and modify, but these are fallen powers, and to change something you do not understand is the true nature of evil."
