When the storm is over

Artist: Wilhelm Krause

There is a lot more in this wonderfully evocative sentence than is immediately apparent. Please, don't read it just once:

When the storm is over and night falls and the moon is out in all its glory and all you're left with is the rhythm of the sea, of the waves, you know what God intended for the human race, you know what paradise is.

-- Harold Pinter


  1. I'm glad you stressed reading this more than once. What a wonderful thought, so now I go to meditate.

  2. Very unlike any other line by Pinter I have ever come across. It's beautiful though.
