WILL SOMEONE PLEASE TURN ON THE LIGHT?

.

.
.
Who is more foolish, the child afraid of the
 dark or the man afraid of the light?
Maurice Freehill
.
.
Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.
.
Chinese Proverb
.
.
In a profound sense every man has two halves to his being;
 he is not one person so much as two persons trying to act in
 unison. I believe that in the heart of each human being there is
 something which I can only describe as a "child of darkness"
 who is equal and complementary to the more obvious
"child of light."
.
Laurens van der Post
.
.

We cannot hold a torch to light another's path without brightening our own.
.
Ben Sweetland
.
.
Light gives of itself freely, filling all available space.
 It does not seek anything in return;
 it asks not whether you are friend or foe.
 It gives of itself and is not thereby diminished.
.
Michael Strassfeld
.
.
Live in rooms full of light.
.
Cornelius Celsus
.
.
.
.
Allah is the light of the heavens and the earth.
 His light may be compared to a niche that
 enshrines a lamp, the lamp within a crystal of
 star-like brilliance. It is lit from a blessed olive
 tree neither eastern nor western. Its very oil
 would almost shine forth, though no fire
 touched it. Light upon light; Allah guides to
 His light whom He will.
.
The Quran
.
.
We are each gifted in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light.
.
Evelyn Dunbar
.
.
There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
.
Edith Wharton
.
.
There are two kinds of light - the glow that illumines,
 and the glare that obscures.
.
James Thurber
.
.
People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.
.
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
.
.
Turn your face to the sun and the
 shadows fall behind you.
.
Maori Proverb
.
.
The hero is the one who kindles a great light in the world,
who sets up blazing torches in the dark streets of life
 for men to see by. The saint is the man who
walks through the dark paths of the world,
 himself a light.
.
Felix Adler
.
.
The universe is illuminated by three kinds of light:
material light, intellectual insight, and spirit luminosity.
.
THE URANTIA BOOK
.
.
Wherever you go, no matter what the weather,
 always bring your own sunshine.
