„I was not made for the great light that devours, a dim lamp was all I had been given, and patience without end, to shine it on the empty shadows.“

—  Samuel Beckett, Molloy (1951), Context: I was not made for the great light that devours, a dim lamp was all I had been given, and patience without end, to shine it on the empty shadows. I was a solid in the midst of other solids.
