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
"These are the seductive voices of the night; the Sirens, too, sang that way. It would be doing them an injustice to think that they wanted to seduce; they know they had claws and sterile wombs, and they lamented this aloud. They could not help it if their laments sounded so beautiful."
— Frank Kafka, German-language writer, born July 3, 1883
