My mother bore me in the southern wild,
And I am black, but O! my soul is white;
White as an angel is the English child,
But I am black as if bereaved of light.
Degrade first the arts if you'd mankind degrade,
Hire idiots to paint with cold light and hot shade.
God appears and god is light
To those poor souls who dwell in night
But does a human form display
To those who dwell in realms of day
Just know we grinding til its light out. Show up in your city, turn that muhfucker right out.
If I ever become a Saint I surely be one of "darkness". I will continually be absent from Heaven to light the light of those in darkness on earth.
The form and content of the writings of men like Plato, Cicero, Farabi and Maimonides appear very different, while their inner teachings may be to all intents and purposes the same. Each had a different beginning point, a different cave, from which he had to ascend to the light and to which he had to return.
Socrates never suggests that the nature of the cave could be altered or that a civil society, a people, a demos, could do without false opinions. The philosophers who returned to the cave would recognize that what others take to be reality is only image, but they could not make any but the happy few able to see the beings as they really are. ... Or to put it in another way, the unwise could not recognize the wise. Men like Bacon and Descartes, by contrast, thought that it was possible to make all men reasonable, to change what had always and everywhere been the case. Enlightenment meant to shine the light of being in the cave and forever to dim the images on the wall. Then there would be unity between the people and the philosopher. The whole issue turns on whether the cave is intractable, as Plato thought, or can be changed by a new kind of education, as the greatest philosophic figures of the seventeenth and eighteenth century taught.
The great extension of our experience in recent years has brought light to the insufficiency of our simple mechanical conceptions and, as a consequence, has shaken the foundation on which the customary interpretation of observation was based.
Just close your eyes,
The sun is going down.
You'll be alright,
No one can hurt you now.
Come morning light.
You and I'll be safe & sound.
Come morning light, you and I will be safe and sound.
She can't see the way your eyes will light up when you smile...
Music is my shining light, my favorite thing in the world. T get me to stop doing it for one second would be difficult!
Swagga so bright, I dont even need light.
My gun go crazy like its retarded. Red light on its like its recording.
To get their attention, start lobbing the light grenades (That burst and blind them with the truth! An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth!)
Wait, there is a light, there is a fire, illuminated attic. Fate or something better, I could care less,Just stay with me a while
I would rather walk with God in the dark than go alone in the light.
And when she was finished they laid her in earth
Flowers growing, butterflies juggling over her...
She, so light, barely pressed the earth down
How much pain it took to make her as light as that!
My experiences with science led me to God. They challenge science to prove the existence of God. But must we really light a candle to see the sun?
We're gonna make it all the way to the light,
but I know i'll go crazy if I don't go crazy tonight
I'm the Imelda Marcos of sunglasses.... Very sensitive eyes to light. If somebody takes my photograph, I will see the flash for the rest of the day. My right eye swells up. I've a blockage there, so that my eyes go red a lot. So it's part vanity, it's part privacy and part sensitivity.
