"Silence is the stillness in which all things become one. Darkness is the enveloping shadow in which one thing becomes all. Sound is the movement in which one ripple in the water becomes a wave on the shore. Light is the burning brand that illuminates the corners of the mind. All things come from shadow, and to there, all will return."
~Ruthenius Grey, Wave Upon the Shore, the Silence
