Never fear to deliberately walk through dark places, for that is how you reach the light on the other side.
O, Woman! in our hours of ease,Uncertain, coy, and hard to please,And variable as the shadeBy the light quivering aspen made;When pain and anguish wring the brow,A ministering angel thou!
The light dove, cleaving the air in her free flight, and feeling its resistance, might imagine that its flight would be still easier in empty space.
I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.
My music is a little dark, and my lyrics are a little darker. Every day, I'm fighting towards the light.
The truth isn't always a blinding light. Sometimes it's a deep and dazzling darkness, that illuminates - and burns - just as surely.

When I was young, I had an 'aha' moment in church. There was a thing called testimony service, and somebody would sing a song, and everyone else would join in, finding a note where they fit.

I do so dearly believe that no half-heartedness and no worldly fear must turn us aside from following the light unflinchingly.
J. R. R. Tolkien
Waiting the word of the Master, Watching the Hidden Light; Listening to his orders In the very midst of the fight; Seeing His slightest signal Across the heads of the throng; Hearing His faintest whisper Above earth's loudest song.
