  Resolved Question: Where is this Umberto Eco
I found this Umberto Eco quote online: "I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.” However, none of the sites I've found it at tell me where it is originally from. Does anyone know where and when this quote first appeared? Thanks, sorry if I've overlooked something.
