"In scanning prospects in the spatial sense- as landscape panoramas- the eye knows itself to be looking at prospects in the temporal sense- as possibilities for the future, resources to be developed, landscapes to be peopled or repeopled by Europeans." Pratt, Scratches on the Face of the Country, p. 124.

Successful collaborations inspire envy in me. But "collaborate," someone once told me, also means "to betray".
