It Must Be Hidden!

"How many of us go on a search and assume we must look behind something or inside something or under something or above something – that what we’re searching for must be hidden in the sense that it can’t be picked out by the naked eye? Poe showed us that the best hiding place may well be somewhere in plain sight because human nature assumes this could never be a possibility. If we’re searching for something, it must be hidden!"

- Noble, Wiliam. Conflict, Action, & Suspense. Writers Digest Books, 1994 pg 122-123.

Great quote from an otherwise forgettable book. Sorry William!
