Shall We Bemoan Any Darkness?

One of the main points of The Man Who Was Thursday…

“Shall we then bemoan any darkness? Shall we not rather gird up our strength to encounter it, that we too from our side may break the passage for the light beyond it? He who fights with the dark shall know the gentleness that makes man great – the dawning countenance of the God of hope. But that was not for Cosmo just yet. The night must fulfill it’s hours. Men are meant and sent to be troubled — that they may rise above the whole region of storm, above all possibility of being troubled.”

George MacDonald, Castle Warlock
