    Light Quotes

    Quotations about Light

    • In the beginning there was nothing. God said, 'Let there be light!' And there was light. There was still nothing, but you could see it a whole lot better.
      (attributed), by Ellen DeGeneres
    • What I give form to in daylight is only one per cent of what I have seen in darkness.
      Quoted in Comic Sections, D. MacHale (Dublin 1993), by M. C. Escher
    • You can't have a light without a dark to stick it in.
    • Any one who has common sense will remember that the bewilderments of the eyes are of two kinds, and arise from two causes, either from coming out of the light or from going into the light, which is true of the mind's eye, quite as much as of the bodily eye; and he who remembers this when he sees any one whose vision is perplexed and weak, will not be too ready to laugh; he will first ask whether that soul of man has come out of the brighter light, and is unable to see because unaccustomed to the dark, or having turned from darkness to the day is dazzled by excess of light.
      The Republic, by Plato
    • In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.
    • We burn daylight.
      "The Merry Wives of Windsor", Act 1 scene 4, by William Shakespeare
    • There are two kinds of light--the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures.
    • Let your light shine. Shine within you so that it can shine on someone else. Let your light shine.
      O Magazine, January 2004, by Oprah Winfrey
