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
"For it is important that awake people be awake, or a breaking line may discourage them back to sleep; the signals we give—yes or no, or maybe—should be clear: the darkness around us is deep."
— William Stafford, American poet, born January 17, 1914
