Darkness and Light


Bacon Pro said:  Everybody is different but I cant say that i would compare mania to a roller coaster. I would say i was hypomanic for years and it made me excel at my job. Full on mania is something i really dont care to describe because it is a darkness that filled with light.

For me, the darkness is my pain, and the light would be drugs that lift that darkness.

“In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present.”  Francis Bacon

“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.”  Desmond Tutu

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us.”  Marianne Williamson

“Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.”  Helen Keller

“For me, singing sad songs often has a way of healing a situation. It gets the hurt out in the open into the light, out of the darkness.”  Reba McEntire

“It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.”  Eleanor Roosevelt

“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.”  Og Mandino

Sometimes cities are so bright that the stars are erased.  Albuquerque is no different — with exceptions, like this evening…  Beautiful stars lit the New Mexican sky tonight.  Sure wish I could have taken a picture.

It’s interesting that I was able to found more quotes from women about darkness and light than I was about risk:
