The line "There are things that are known and things that are unknown; in between are doors" is sometimes said to be the inspiration for the name of the rock group The Doors.  It is sometimes said to be from a writing of William Blake's, sometimes from a writing of Jim Morrison's.  Can anyone provide a precise source?
