Rage against the dying of the light!




In this poem “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night”, Welsh poet and writer, Dylan Thomas proclaims that the wise and good do not go gently into the good night of death.

Instead, they rage against the dying of the light, against the demise of what wisdom and good their words and deeds may have effected in the world.



Though good and wise leaders must die, as we all,
their light need not follow them into the good night.

It is now our journey to carry on their work and to "rage, rage against the dying of the light."
