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.
