„To my mind, faith is like being in the sun. When you are in the sun, can you avoid creating a shadow?“

—  Yann Martel, Beatrice & Virgil (2010), Context: To my mind, faith is like being in the sun. When you are in the sun, can you avoid creating a shadow? Can you shake that area of darkness that clings to you, always shaped like you, as if constantly to remind you of yourself? You can't. This shadow is doubt. And it goes wherever you go as long as you stay in the sun. And who wouldn't want to be in the sun? p. 103

„Look at the sun sinkin' like a ship. Ain't that just like my heart, babe. When you kissed my lips?“

—  Bob Dylan American singer-songwriter, musician, author, and artist 1941
Song lyrics, It Ain't Me Babe, Context: Go away from my window, Leave at your own chosen speed, I'm not the one you want, babe, I'm not the one you need. You say you're looking for someone, Who's never weak but always strong, To protect you and defend you, Whether you are right or wrong, Someone to open each and every door, But it ain't me, babe, No, no, no, it ain't me, babe, It ain't me you're looking for, babe.

Do you see that sunflower, raising its head
Glaring at the sun?
Its head almost eclipses the sun
Yet even when there is no sun
Its head still glows.“
