true - both literally and metaphorically, but why would one want to cross the river at night?

btw, i love all these river photos.

I think there's a Sesotho equivalent, but I can't recall it. True words.

Yes- and light is stronger than darkness- you shine a flashlight into a dark room, not a flashdark in a light room!

polona- yes, that's why I like it. I can imagine having to cross the river at night to escape an oppressor, or something to that effect.

rethabile- I'm sure this can be found in many cultures.

lp- funny ;) I think they're both powerful and rely on each other to some degree.

unedited- thanks for the visit.
