The sound of the mandolin is a very curious sound because it's cheerful and melancholy at the same time, and I think it comes from that shadow string, the double strings.
Rita Dove

To love someone is to isolate him from the world, wipe out every trace of him, dispossess him of his shadow, drag him into a murderous future. It is to circle around the other like a dead star and absorb him into a black light.
Jean Baudrillard

The light of lights looks always on the motive, not the deed, the shadow of shadows on the deed alone.
William Butler Yeats

Shadow is a colour as light is, but less brilliant; light and shadow are only the relation of two tones.
Paul Cezanne

Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.

The light and the shadow are both part of the same, it's the yin and the yang and one cannot exist without the other;
You really got me thinking this morning, have not even had a whole cup of coffee yet and type with one hand - cat on my lap

I agree, the second has some scary words and I don't know about the concept.
Jean Baudrillard , was french and perhaps something got lost in the translation.
I The Paul Cezanne quote speaks to me. But in reality my experiments with colors and shadows have been abject failures. My hat to all artists.
