There exists a black kingdom which the eyes of man avoid because its landscape fails signally to flatter them. This darkness, which he imagines he can dispense with in describing the light, is error with its unknown characteristics. Error is certainty's constant companion. Error is the corollary of evidence. And anything said about truth may equally well be said about error: the delusion will be no greater.
Louis Aragon (October 3, 1897 December 24, 1982), French historian, poet and novelist, and a member of the Acadmie Goncourt.
