We have come to banish the darkness

“We have come to banish the darkness.
In our hands is light and fire.
Every one is a small light.
But together we are a mighty fire.
Out, darkness!
Run away before the power of light!”
– traditional Channukah song

Being alone

“Language… has created the word ‘loneliness’ to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word ‘solitude’ to express the glory of being alone.”
– Paul Tillich
