Quotes of the Day for 5 January 2001 – Darkness

It doesn't always rain here in the Pacific Northwest, but in the winter there are days of towering gloom that make summer seem a distant memory and an unlikely recurrence. At some point I was bound to find myself fixating on the Darkness, we might as well get it over with today.

Van's signature

The quotes:

People are like stained glass windows: they sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light within.
     - Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

Ah, Hope! what would life be, stripped of thy encouraging smiles, that teach us to look behind the dark clouds of to-day, for the golden beams that are to gild the morrow.
     - François, Duc de La Rochefoucauld

An age is called Dark not because the light fails to shine, but because people refuse to see it.
     - James Michener

When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark, you don't throw away the ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer.
     - Corrie Ten Boom
