Shine Quotes

I am looking for the happiness which lives. And truly, when I have a sense of some new assent wavering and making ready, or when I am on the way to a first rendezvous, I feel myself gloriously uplifted, and equal to everything! This fills my life. Desire wears the brain as much as thought wears it. All my being is agog for chances to shine and to be shared. When they say in my presence of some young woman that, "she is not happy," a thrill of joy tears through me.

Henri Barbusse

Our followers are of three kinds: one who follows us but depends on others; one who is like a glass involved in his own reflections; but the best are those who are like gold, the more they suffer the more they shine.

al-Baqir, Muhammad

I was not made for the great light that devours, a dim lamp was all I had been given, and patience without end, to shine it on the empty shadows. I was a solid in the midst of other solids.

Samuel Beckett

To shine is better than to reflect.

Gregory Benford

Just like the moon, I'll step aside, and let your sun shine while I follow behind...

Natasha Anne Bedingfield

I do most of my work sitting down; that's where I shine.

Robert Charles Benchley

Wherever the Catholic sun doth shine, Theres always laughter and good red wine. At least Ive always found it so. Benedicamus Domino!

Joseph Hilaire Pierre Ren Belloc

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.

Allan David Bloom

So don't you worry your pretty little mind People throw rocks at things that shine And life makes love look hard The stakes are high, the water's rough But this love is ours.

Taylor Swift

So don't you worry your pretty little mind because people throw rocks at things that shine.

Everytime you smile, I smile And everytime you shine, I'll shine for you.

Taylor Swift

My mind shine even when my thoughts seem dark.

Lil Wayne

Give it time, girl, the fire feels divine. The sweetest things, they burn before they shine.

Brandon Boyd

No coward soul is mine, No trembler in the world's storm-troubled sphere: I see Heaven's glories shine, And Faith shines equal, arming me from Fear.

Emily Jane Bront

Do not endeavour to shine in all companies. Leave room for your hearers to imagine something within you beyond all you have said. And remember, the more you are praised, the more you will be envied.

James Burgh

All the breath and the bloom of the year in the bag of one bee: All the wonder and wealth of the mine in the heart of one gem: In the core of one pearl all the shade and the shine of the sea: Breath and bloom, shade and shine, wonder, wealth, and how far above them Truth, that's brighter than gem, Trust, that's purer than pearl, Brightest truth, purest trust in the universe, all were for me In the kiss of one girl.

Robert Browning
