Asya Yüce

Hannah Arendt

“That even in the darkest of times we have the right to expect some illumination, and that such illumination might well come less from theories and concepts than from the uncertain, flickering, and often weak light that some men and women, in their lives and their works, will kindle under almost all circumstances and shed over the time span that was given to them….”

Why today, you remember once again, that life has passed before all life, that there is nothing more than waiting for death, like every day. Life is timeless. Life has no time. Childhood, femininity, masculinity, old age, life, death, love, lovelessness, satisfaction, dissatisfaction, everything is intertwined. Mind, madness, being, emptiness are intertwined. Like the White Nights of northern Europe. After the dark air, immediately again, like the dawn of the day.
