Fate was not kind and life was capricious,

but there is good and reason in us;

we can draw close to one another in times of need,

understand and love one another.

Sometimes, when the black depths are silent,

we can do even more.

We can construct songs and poems

full of meaning, consolation and goodness,

more beautiful and enduring than

the grim sport of fortune and destiny.

~Hermann Hesse
