„If our so-called facts are changing shadows, they are shadows cast by the light of constant truth.“

—  Arthur Stanley Eddington, Context: If our so-called facts are changing shadows, they are shadows cast by the light of constant truth. So too in religion we are repelled by that confident theological doctrine... but we need not turn aside from the measure of light that comes into our experience showing us a Way through the unseen world.<!--IX, p.91

„The body which is nearest to the light casts the largest shadow, and why?“

—  Leonardo Da Vinci Italian Renaissance polymath 1452 - 1519
Context: The body which is nearest to the light casts the largest shadow, and why? If an object placed in front of a single light is very close to it you will see that it casts a very large shadow on the opposite wall, and the farther you remove the object from the light the smaller will the image of the shadow become.

„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.
