    "Un genre de lumière soutenue, une lumière impénétrable, éternelle, sereine, muette, toujours souveraine, mouvante et pourtant immobile, englobant toutes choses, rendant toute chose silencieuse."

    "A kind of strong light, impenetrable, an eternal light, serene, silent, still sovereign, moving and yet still, encompassing all things, making the whole thing quiet."

    Beauford Delaney
