"Blessed are the cracked, for they shall let in the light." (anon)

"One may not reach the dawn save by the path of the night." (Germaine Greer)

"Don't take life too seriously; you'll never get out of it alive." (Elbert Hubbard)

Does your quote derive from the Leonard Cohen song?

"Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in."

&c. &c.

I just saw it on a postcard with no attribution, Alan... but I'd guess it does. My wife is the Leonard Cohen aficionado in our house, so she will be pleased.
