the stage of transition. The present is in every age merely the shifting 

point at which past and future meet, and we can have no quarrel with 

either. There can be no world without traditions; neither can there be any 

life without movement. As Heracleitus knew at the outset of modern 

philosophy, we cannot bathe twice in the same stream, though, as we know 

to-day, the stream still flows in an unending circle. There is never a 

moment when the new dawn is not breaking over the earth, and never a 

moment when the sunset ceases to die. It is well to greet serenely even 

the first glimmer of the dawn when we see it, not hastening towards it 

with undue speed, nor leaving the sunset without gratitude for the dying 

light that once was dawn. 

 

In the moral world we are ourselves the light-bearers, and the cosmic 

process is in us made flesh. For a brief space it is granted to us, if we 

will, to enlighten the darkness that surrounds our path. As in the ancient 

torch-race, which seemed to Lucretius to be the symbol of all life, we 

press forward torch in hand along the course. Soon from behind comes the 

runner who will outpace us. All our skill lies in giving into his hand the 

living torch, bright and unflickering, as we ourselves disappear in the 

darkness. 

 

HAVELOCK ELLIS.
