I am in the world feeling my way to light ‘amid the encircling gloom.’
To love someone is to isolate him from the world, wipe out every trace of him, dispossess him of his shadow, drag him into a murderous future. It is to circle around the other like a dead star and absorb him into a black light.
Confidence in others’ honesty is no light testimony of one’s own integrity.
Death is delightful. Death is dawn, The waking from a weary night Of fevers unto truth and light.
Each one prays to God according to his own light.
Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.
Fond memory brings the light of other days around me.
There is a descent from God through the world to animals, and an ascent from animals through the world to God. He is the highest point of the scale, pure act and active power, the purest light.
Joy is like restless day; but peace divine like quiet night; Lead me, O Lord, till perfect Day shall shine through Peace to Light.
Do not go gentle into that good night but rage, rage against the dying of the light.
