A Quote by William James on chance, darkness, death, heroism, interest, life, and victory

What excites and interests the looker-on at life, what the romances and the statues celebrate, and the grim civic monuments remind us of, is the everlasting battle of the powers of light with those of darkness; with heroism reduced to its bare chance, yet ever and anon snatching victory from the jaws of death.

William James (1842 - 1910)
