I just finished reading Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol and there were two passages that really stood out to me.

Quote from character Peter Soloman in his closing remarks speaking to college students:

“Throughout history, every period of enlightenment has been accompanied by a period of darkness, pushing in opposition. Such are the laws of nature and balance. And if we look at the darkness growing in the world today, we have to realize that this means there is equal light growing. We are on the verge of a truly great period of illumination, and all of us–all of you–are profoundly blessed to be living through this pivotal moment of history.”

Also in his novel, Dan Brown used a quote from Albert Pike that really hit me:

“What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.”
