“The saying goes, ‘The black tides of heaven direct the courses of human lives.’ To which a wise teacher said, ‘But as with all waters, one can swim against the tide.”
J.Y. Yang, The Black Tides of Heaven

“With all the horrors in the world, it was easy to forget there were wonders too.”
J.Y. Yang, The Black Tides of Heaven

“Let the black tides of heaven direct our lives,” he murmured. He turned to look at his partner. “I choose to swim.”
J.Y. Yang, The Black Tides of Heaven
