Light Quotes

Light be the earth upon you, lightly rest.


I at least have so much to do in unraveling certain human lots, and seeing how they were woven and interwoven, that all the light I can command must be concentrated on this particular web, and not dispersed over that tempting range of relevancies called the universe.

George Eliot

My wife is a light eater. As soon as it is light, she starts to eat.

Henny Youngman

Communication is and should be hell fire and sparks as well as sweetness and light.

Aman Vivian Rakoff

As we become purer channels for God's light, we develop an appetite for the sweetness that is possible in this world. A miracle worker is not geared toward fighting the world that is, but toward creating the world that could be.

Marianne Williamson

Never do today what you can put off till tomorrow. Delay may give clearer light as to what is best to be done.

Aaron Burr

The primary tool of science is skepticism, whose light shrivels unquestioning faith.

Mike Huben

It is not long since man thought of himself as the center of the universe, thought even of the Sun - the very source of all our life - as a light by day revolving about the Earth. As our new understanding has come - through science - science also has brought us many other new and wonderful discoveries, and the new knowledge of what we are has been overlooked by many of us in our eagerness for the new knowledge of what we can do. We have become as proud over what we can do as ever our ancestors could have been over themselves as the center of the universe. We deeply need the humility to know ourselves as the dependent members of a great community of life, and this can indeed be one of the spiritual benefits of a wilderness experience. Without the gagets, the inventions, the contrivances whereby men have seemed to establish among themselves an independence of nature, without these distractions, to know the wilderness is to know a profound humility, to recognize oneís littleness, to sense dependence and interdependence, indebtedness, and responsibility. Perhaps, indeed, this is the distinctive ministration of wilderness to modern man, the characteristic effect of an area which we most deeply need to provide for in our preservation programs.

Howard Zahniser

As long as there are young men with the light of adventure in their eyes or a touch of wildness in their souls, rapids will be run.

Sigurd F. Olson

Smokers, male and female, inject and excuse idleness in their lives every time they light a cigarette.

Sidonie Gabrielle Colette

Nature is so powerful, so strong. Capturing its essence is not easy - your work becomes a dance with light and the weather. It takes you to a place within yourself.†

Annie Leibovitz

Evil is the shadow of angel. Just as there are angels of light, support, guidance, healing and defense, so we have experiences of shadow angels. And we have names for them: racism, sexism, homophobia are all demons- but they're not out there.

Matthew Fox

I light my candle from their torches.

Robert Burton

The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it - and the glow from that fire can truly light the world.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy

There was a young lady named Bright, Whose speed was far faster than light; She started one day In a relative way, And returned on the previous night.
