"...before a dream is realized, the Soul of the World tests everything that was learned along the way. It does this not because it is evil, but so that we can, in addition to realizing our dreams, master the lessons we've learned as we've moved towards the dream.

"It is said that the darkest hour of the night came just before dawn."- The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho
