"My Lord, how far is humanity from perfection?"

"My child, the distance is very short. As light and darkness go together, so also perfection and imperfection go together. As light transforms night into light, so also perfection will transform imperfection into perfection."

"You are right, my Lord, but in case night devours light before it has been illumined, and imperfection devours perfection before it has been perfected, what will happen?"

"Ah! My child, just to prevent it from happening, I watch and live, and live and watch."
