Do not give way to useless alarm, though it is right to be prepared for the worst, there is no occasion to look on it as certain.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.
But eyes are blind. You have to look with the heart.[translation by Richard Howard]The eyes are blind. One must look with the heart…[translation by Katherine Woods]
Best not to look back. Best to believe there will be happily ever afters all the way around – and so there may be; who is to say there will not be such endings? Not all boats which sail away into darkness never find the sun again, or the hand of another child; if life teaches anything at all, it teaches that there are so many happy endings that the man who believes there is no God needs his rationality called into serious question.
