Revelations and better days

It is not revolutions and upheavals
that clear the road to new and better days,
but revelations, lavishness and torments
of someone’s soul, inspired and ablaze.

Boris Pasternak, “After the Storm”, 1958, quoted by Meg Wheatley in Finding our Way: Leadership for an uncertain time
