„And then a light winked like an eye.
. . . And very many miles away“

—  Stephen Vincent Benét poet, short story writer, novelist 1898 - 1943

Young Adventure (1918), The Quality of Courage
Kontext: p>Was it not better so to lie?
The fight was done. Even gods tire
Of fighting... My way was the wrong.
Now I should drift and drift along
To endless quiet, golden peace...
And let the tortured body cease.And then a light winked like an eye.
... And very many miles away
A girl stood at a warm, lit door,
Holding a lamp. Ray upon ray
It cloaked the snow with perfect light.
And where she was there was no night
Nor could be, ever. God is sure,
And in his hands are things secure.</p

—  Felix Adler German American professor of political and social ethics, rationalist, and lecturer 1851 - 1933

We are here — no matter who put us here, or how we came here — to fulfil a task. We cannot afford to go of our own volition until the last item of our duty is discharged.

—  Madeleine L'Engle, buch A Wrinkle in Time

The light spread until the patch of Dark Thing had vanished, and there was only a gentle shining, and through the shining came the stars, clear and pure.

and darkness the right hand of light.
Two are one, life and death, lying
together like lovers in kemmer,
like hands joined together,
like the end and the way.“
