124. made me think of -
"Be careful lest in casting out
your demons, you cast out the best thing that's in you."

- Nietzsche

"To see life as all light and no shadow, or all shadow and no light is to be less than fully human. The richness comes, as the classical artists down through time knew, with the ability to portray chiaroscuro the light and the shade. The shadows and light in a painting make it real, make it authentic. The same can be said for human existence."

- Don Beaudreault

"Not a few who meant to drive out their demons went thereby into the swine themselves."
- Nietzche

Thus shadow owes its birth to light.
- John Gay, The Persian, Sun, and Cloud (l. 10)

If it weren't for such times, we wouldn't have free will. Seems God is a real trickster -
