Thou hast a joy too deep for shallow Day.”

“It cannot be seen, cannot be felt,
Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt,
It lies behind stars and under hills,
And empty holes it fills,
It comes first and follows after,
Ends life, kills laughter.”~ J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit
“I am a forest, and a night of dark trees; but he who is not afraid of my darkness, will find banks full of roses under my cypresses.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra
