  • Epigraph:

    Somewhere there waiteth in this world of ours

    For one lone soul another lonely soul,

    Each choosing each through all the lonely years

    And meeting strangely at one sudden goal.

    Then blend they like green leaves with golden flowers

    Into one beautiful and perfect whole.

    And life's long night is ended, and the way

    Lies open onward to the eternal day."

    —Edwin Arnold.
