„When the light of the sun shines through a prism it is broken into beautiful colours, and when the prism is shattered, still the light remains.“

—  Felix Adler German American professor of political and social ethics, rationalist, and lecturer 1851 - 1933

Section 8 : Suffering and Consolation
Founding Address (1876), Life and Destiny (1913)
Contexte: When the light of the sun shines through a prism it is broken into beautiful colours, and when the prism is shattered, still the light remains. So does the life of life shine resplendent in the forms of our friends, and so, when their forms are broken, still their life remains; and in that life we are united with them; for the life of their life is also our life, and we are one with them by ties indissoluble.

„When we've been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we'd first begun.“

—  John Newton Anglican clergyman and hymn-writer 1725 - 1807

These lines were not written by Newton. They have often been accreted to various hymns, including "Amazing Grace", since the mid-nineteenth century.
