Yet how superb, across the tumult braided,
The painted rainbow’s changeful life is bending,
Now clearly drawn, dissolving now and faded,
And evermore the showers of dew descending!
Of human striving there’s no symbol fuller:
Consider, and ’tis easy comprehending —
Life is not light, but the refracted color.
–Faust, Part II, by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
