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][Mais les yeux sont aveugles. Il faut chercher avec le cœur.]
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.
