A Quote by Edmund Waller on darkness, eternity, home, men, soul, time, and weakness

The soul's dark cottage, batter'd and decay'd, Lets in new light through chinks that Time has made. Stronger by weakness, wiser men become As they draw near to their eternal home: Leaving the old, both worlds at once they view That stand upon the threshold of the new.

Edmund Waller (1605 - 1687)
