“Grief in the galaxy, is there? Oh yes. Oceans of it. There you see: darkness. Darkness everywhere. And a few stars. A few points of light. If no plan, there is, no fate, no destiny, no providence, no force: Then what is left? Nothing but our choices, hmm? To be a jedi is to face the truth, and choose. Give off light, or darkness. Be a candle, or the night.”

– Yoda: Dark Rendezvous by Sean Stewart

Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting -
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
