Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths, Enwrought with golden and silver light, The blue and the dim and the Dark cloths Of night and light and the half-light, I would spread the cloths under your feet: But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.William Butler Yeats

You owe them a deep debt of gratitude, for not only have they shed much light on a naturally Dark world but they have very probably helped civilize your own specific religion.steve allen

However great the exertion of our mind may be to comprehend the Divine Being or any of the ideals, we find a screen and partition between God and us.maimonides
"I can see in the Dark."
"That may be so, Mulla. But if it is true, why do you sometimes carry a candle at night?"

Pergo Park knew me, and Clavering, and Havering- atte-Bower, Stanford Rivers lost me in osier-beds, Stapleford Abbots sent me safe home on the Dark road after Simeon-quiet evensong, Wanstead drew me over and over into its basic poetry, in its serpentine lake I saw bass-viols among the golden dead leaves, through its trees the ghost of a great house.Denise Levertov
