A good prospector, a serious one, who does not want to
tell lies either to others or to himself, should not trust in
appearances, because the rock, which seems dead, instead is
full of deception: sometimes it changes its nature even while
you're digging, like certain snakes that change color so you
won't see them.
-Primo Levi, "The Periodic Table," 1975.
