The Hero Path

Joseph Campbell

We have not even to risk the adventure alone;

for the heroes of all time have gone before us;

the labyrinth is thoroughly known;

we have only to follow the thread of the hero path.

And where we had thought to find an abomination,
we shall find a god...

Where we had thought to travel outward,

we will come to the center of our own existence;
where we had thought to be alone,
we shall be with all the world.
