your brightness is my darkness
"Your brightness is my darkness. I know nothing of You and, by myself, I cannot even imagine how to go about knowing You. If I imagine You, I am mistaken. If I understand You, I am deluded. If I am conscious and certain I know You, I am crazy. The darkness is enough."
—Thomas Merton, prayer before midnight mass at Christmas, 1941.
