In daylight everything is clear and tangible,
but the night lasts as long as the day,
and we live in the nighttime also.
~ Carl Jung, The Spiritual Problem of Modern Man (1928)
At dusk the cock announces the dawn; At midnight, the bright sun
~ Zen proverb
To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark.
Go without sight, and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is traveled by dark feet and dark wings.
~ Wendell Berry
And there is no object so soft but it makes a hub for the wheeled universe,
And any man or woman shall stand cool and supercilious
before a million universes.
~ Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass (1855)
