The Noonday Demon

Everything passes away — suffering, pain, blood, hunger, pestilence. The sword will pass away too, but the stars will remain when the shadows of our presence and our deeds have vanished from the earth. There is no man that does not know that. Why, then, will we not turn our eyes toward the stars? Why?

— Mikhail Bulgakov, The White Guard
