A Key to All Mythologies

"A myth points, for each reader, to the realm he lives in most. It is a master key; use it on what door you like." (C. S. Lewis)

I buried this quotation deep in the notes of Four British Fantasists, but coming across it again now I was struck again by its lapidary wisdom. One of my favourite sayings of Lewis, and not well known.
