 "When tales fly thick in the grottoes of tritons, and conches in seaweed cities blow wild tunes learned from the Elder Ones, then great eager mists flock to heaven laden with lore, and oceanward eyes on the rocks see only a mystic whiteness, as if the cliff’s rim were the rim of all earth, and the solemn bells of buoys tolled free in the aether of faery."
"Ironic humour dragged down all the twilight minarets he reared, and the earthy fear of improbability blasted all the delicate and amazing flowers in his faery gardens."
H.P. Lovecraft, The Strange High House In the Mist

"There is a long tradition in myth and legend of these diminutive enchanting spirits throughout Europe and the Middle East, althought they figure less in other countries of the world. The Fairies may vary in their appare and abodes but in general they resemble tiny humans."
 Carol Rose, Spirits, Fairies, Leprechauns and Goblins
