From the last chapter of Red Sails to Capri by Ann Weil:
Herre Nordstrom smiled. "I will tell you," he said, "what all philosophers know. To search for the truth is always an adventure--and there is always beauty in the truth itself. To have knowledge and understanding, to know the truth about things, that can be as exciting and beautiful as this blue cavern, this blue grotto."If any publisher happens to read this, please please bring this book back into print! It's one of my very favorite books and every school library should have a copy.
