What is total darkness?

Famous quotes containing the words darkness and/or total:

    Alcohol is barren. The words a man speaks in the night of drunkenness fade like the darkness itself at the coming of day.
    Marguerite Duras (b. 1914)

    The chief lesson of the Depression should never be forgotten. Even our liberty-loving American people will sacrifice their freedom and their democratic principles if their security and their very lives are threatened by another breakdown of our free enterprise system. We can no more afford another general depression than we can afford another total war, if democracy is to survive.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)
