Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986), "The Library of Babel," Collected Fictions
, tr. Andrew Hurley (New York: Penguin Books, 1998), pp. 112-118 (at 117):
There is no combination of characters one can make—dhcmrlchtdj, for example—that the
divine Library has not foreseen and that in one or more of its secret tongues
does not hide a terrible significance. There is no syllable one can speak that is
not filled with tenderness and terror, that is not, in one of those languages,
the mighty name of a god.
