Who is more foolish, the child afraid of the dark or the man afraid of the light?
In a profound sense every man has two halves to his being; he is not one person so much as two persons trying to act in unison. I believe that in the heart of each human being there is something which I can only describe as a "child of darkness" who is equal and complementary to the more obvious "child of light."
Laurens van der Post
We cannot hold a torch to light another's path without brightening our own.
You can't study the darkness by flooding it with light.
In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.
Only the person who has experienced light and darkness, war and peace, rise and fall, only that person has truly experienced life.
Nothing travels faster than light, with the possible exception of bad news, which follows its own rules.
An optimist is a person who sees a green light everywhere, while a pessimist sees only the red stoplight. The truly wise person is color-blind.
Never fear shadows, that always means there is a light shining somewhere.
