„Night, the shadow of light,
And Life, the shadow of death.“

—  Algernon Charles Swinburne English poet, playwright, novelist, and critic 1837 - 1909
Context: Before the beginning of years There came to the making of man Time with a gift of tears, Grief with a glass that ran, Pleasure with pain for leaven, Summer with flowers that fell, Remembrance fallen from heaven, And Madness risen from hell, Strength without hands to smite, Love that endures for a breath; Night, the shadow of light, And Life, the shadow of death. Second chorus, lines 1-12.
