चारुदत्त - तमसः

सुलभशरणमाश्रयो भयानां
    वनगहनं तिमिरं च तुल्यमेव |
उभयमपि हि रक्षतेऽन्धकारो
    जनयति यश्च भयानि यश्च भीतः ||

- चारुदत्त

Darkness and a deep forest are alike. They create fear and they also protect those who seek refuge. Look at the theif who steals at night and the person who runs away from him. The forest protects the thief and the darkness protects the other (from the thief)
