Even In Our Sleep

He who learns must suffer, and, even in our sleep, pain, which cannot forget, falls drop by drop upon the heart until, in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom through the awful grace of God.

The Flower Of Light

Solara: Have you ever thought that maybe you were lost?
Eli: Nope.
Solara: Well, how do you know that you’re walking in the right direction?
Eli: I walk by faith, not by sight.
Solara: [sighs] What does that mean?
Eli: It means that you know something even if you don’t know something.
Solara: That doesn’t make any sense.
Eli: It doesn’t have to make sense.  It’s faith, it’s faith.  It’s the flower of light in the field of darkness that’s giving me the strength to carry on.  You understand?
Solara: Is that from your book?
Eli: No, it’s, uh, Johnny Cash, Live at Folsom Prison.
[This dialogue is from the movie: "The Book Of Eli".  Eli is played by Denzel Washington and Solara is played by Mila Kunis.  --  KMAB]
