Criminal Minds, episode 2.6October 27th, 2006 by Michael Moncur in Quotations, TV
Once again, here are the quotations used in this week’s episode of Criminal Minds. Once again, there was only one quotation, since this was essentially the second half of last week’s episode.
We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.
As with many of the quotations in this show, this one is difficult to authenticate, although it’s all over the web. However, I did find the following interesting treatise on light and dark in The Republic:
Any one who has common sense will remember that the bewilderments of the eyes are of two kinds, and arise from two causes, either from coming out of the light or from going into the light, which is true of the mind’s eye, quite as much as of the bodily eye; and he who remembers this when he sees any one whose vision is perplexed and weak, will not be too ready to laugh; he will first ask whether that soul of man has come out of the brighter light, and is unable to see because unaccustomed to the dark, or having turned from darkness to the day is dazzled by excess of light.
Stay tuned next week for the quotations from next week’s episode of Criminal Minds. The show airs at 8PM or 9PM, depending on your time zone, on CBS.
