“This is the happy time, I tell myself. I am superstitious about happiness. I worry that too much celebration of immanence, of God-goodness and life force, invites its opposite. Some pagan part of me believes that too much light draws darkness.”
Horatio Clare, The Light in the Dark: A Winter Journal – A journey towards hope

“It doesn't make any sense, does it?"
"Some things don't," said the beetle, gloomily.
"Don't be so sure," Aubrey said. "Everything makes sense if you can find the right way to look at it. What we need is a new perspective.”
Horatio Clare, Aubrey and the Terrible Yoot

“Too much certainty is a miserable thing, while the unknowable has a pristine beauty and a wonder with no end.”
Horatio Clare
