Readings for
St. Patrick's Day

Time of this entry: 12:00:36 PM.


"Here the climax of the darkening is reached. The dark power at first held so high a place that it could wound all who were on the side of good and of the light. But in the end it perishes of its own darkness, for evil must itself fall at the very moment when it has wholly overcome the good, and thus consumed the energy to which it owed its duration."

  1. A commentary on "Darkening of the Light," the I Ching, Hexagram 36:
  2. Darkness at Noon, by Arthur Koestler
  3. Under Western Eyes, by Joseph Conrad
