Victor Hugo- The Future

Will the future ever arrive?…Should we continue to look upwards?Is the light we can see in the sky one of those which will presently be extinguished?┬áThe ideal is terrifying to behold, lost as it is in the depth, small, isolated, a pin-point,brilliant but threatened on all sides by the dark forces that surround it;┬ánevertheless, no more in danger than a star in the jaws of the clouds.
