Life after Ragnarok

Author: Neil Gaiman
Book: Norse Mythology, Page #263

This is the end. But there is always what will come after the end.

From the gray waters of the ocean, the green earth will arise once more.

The sun will have been eaten, but the sun's daughter will shine in the place of her mother, and the new sun will shine even more brightly than the old, shine with young light and new.

The woman and the man, Life and Life's Yearning, will come out from inside the ash tree that holds the the worlds together. They will feed upon the dew on the green earth, and they will make love, and from their love will spring mankind.
