It strikes me that there are so many literary "gate" phrases because of the
suggesive and evocative power of the idea and the image of gate or door:
the horn and ivory gates of the true and false dreams; the gate which is
like a weir, through which all must move; the gateway of transformation, ie
the doors of perception;in many basic cultures the village entrance and
exit are defined by gates which are much more elaborate in construction and
use more valuable materials than the dwellings. Laurie Muelder
