I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars. — Og Mandino
"The terrifying power of darkness is inseparable from the redemptive power of the sacred, the deeper we are drawn into the creative depth of darkness the more real the actual presence of the sacred becomes."
— Fyodor Dostoevsky, Russian novelist, born November 11, 1821
