Smilla's Sense of Culture

"There is one way to understand another culture. Living it.  Move into it, ask to be tolerated as a guest, learn the language.  At some point understanding may come.  It will always be worldless.  The moment you grasp what is foreign, you will lose the urge to explain it.  To explain a phenomenon is to distance yourself from it."
