“And in that gate they shall enter, and in that house they shall dwell, where there shall be no cloud nor sun, no darkness nor dazzling but one equal light, no noise nor silence but one equal music, no fears nor hopes but one equal possession, no foes nor friends but one equal communion and identity, no ends nor beginnings but one equal eternity.” - John Donne; Semon XV, 1619.
