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
"Emergencies have always been necessary to progress. It was darkness which produced the lamp. It was fog that produced the compass. It was hunger that drove us to exploration. And it took a depression to teach us the real value of a job."
— Victor Hugo, French poet, novelist, born February 26, 1802
