Summary

“The Sphinx, the Pyramids, the stone temples are, all of them, ultimately, as flimsy as London Bridge; our cities but tents set up in the cosmos. We pass. But what the bee knows, the wisdom that sustains our passing life—however much we deny or ignore it—that for ever remains.” —P. L. Travers

Born in 1899, P. L. Travers is perhaps best known as the author of the Mary Poppins books, but she also wrote extensively on myth and story. She served as a consulting editor for Parabola Magazine from its inception until her death in 1996.
