For all that has been—Thanks.
To all that shall be—Yes.
To say Yes to life is at one and the same time
to say Yes to oneself.
Yes—even to the element in one which is most unwilling
to let itself be transformed from a temptation into a strength.
To be free, to be able to stand up and
leave everything behind—without looking back.
To say Yes.
— Dag Hammarskjord
