“Between the idea
    And the reality
    Between the motion
    And the act
    Between the conception
    And the creation
    Between the emotion
    And the response
    Between the desire
    And the spasm
    Between the potency
    And the existence
    Between the essence
    And the descent
    Falls the Shadow”

T. S. Eliot

“The mind adapts and converts to its own purposes
the obstacle to our acting.
 The impediment to action advances action.
 What stands in the way becomes the way.”

Marcus Aurelius

“What doesn’t transmit light creates its own darkness.”

Marcus Aurelius
