My dear Captain Faiz,

Respectfully, the central theme of the words of profound wisdom you quoted was different: "Darkness makes Light much more appreciable."

Mirza Ghalib put it beautifully, though a difficult she'r for the common man:

LATAAFAT BAY KASAAFAT JALWA PAIDA KAR NAHIN SAKTI
CHAMAN ZANGAAR HAI AAIYNA-E BAAD-E-BAHAARI KI

(Beauty cannot glitter without ugliness (compared). A meadow is the rusty polish of the mirror of spring breeze.)

..........................

"Yeh ummat rivayaat meon kho gai
Haqeeqat khurafat mein kho gai"

Make it:
Haqeeqat khurafat mein kho gai
Yeh ummat rivayaat mein kho gai
- Iqbal

Thanks a lot!
