'If a thing has been forbidden and must live in darkness
and silence, it's hard to know how it might be if
allowed to thrive.'
A Place Called Winter by Patrick Gale

'…And I smile
As the droplets fall from a dark Heaven
In a never ending out pouring
So hard
As to be
Washed away
In a melting pot of history…'

…It matters not how strait the gate,
      How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
      I am the captain of my soul.
William Ernest Henley 1875
