One must wait until the evening
To see how splendid the day has been.

More on the Great Dark Man

Quentin Crisp

And no, I never found the great dark man because there is no great dark man. You are alone. It’s always the same – it’s never “out there,” it’s always in here. I once knew a woman with whom I discussed the theory of the great dark man and she said, “I’ve lived with a number of men and each one of them has had to be carried every step of the way.”
