The Festival of the Passing Forms

"To make it [mythology] serve the present hour, we have only to assemble -- or reassemble -- it in its full dimension, scientifically, and then bring it to life as our own, in the way of art: the way of wonder -- sympathetic, instructive delight; not judging morally, but participating with our own awakened humanity in the festival of the passing forms."

Campbell, pg. 18.
