You are the light of the world

"When it is dark enough, you can see the stars." - Charles Beard

"The darkness that surrounds us cannot hurt us. It is the darkness in your own heart you should fear." - Silvetris

"We are each gifted in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light." - Mary Dunbar

"Darkness can not drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." - Martin Luther King, Jr.

"When people choose to withdraw far from a fire, the fire continues to give warmth, but they grow cold. When people choose to withdraw far from light, the light continues to be bright in itself but they are in darkness. This is also the case when people withdraw from God." - Augustine

"It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light." - Aristotle Onassis

"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven." - Matthew 5:16

Hi Sam... ahhh this is one of my all time favorites! I so agree!

I think this is one of the most powerful ideas... that light eliminates the darkness,

We can't fight darkness with more darkness...

Very lovely thoughts Sam... thank you so much for this!

I always find such inspiration here!

Hi Jennifer,
Thanks for your kind words. I am glad that this is one of your all time favorites!

Well, I am just doing my part by picking a topic and then selecting all the relevant quotes from all great men who had left it for our use. The important thing for us to remember is to practise all the good things posted rather than just knowing it.

I am really encouraged by your participation. Thank you.
God Bless.
