A busy man who can keep up a daily journal resembles a Steel person preparing for bed with the shades up? When such a man publishes parts of his journal, the reader must conclude he always knew the lights were on.
The view we enjoyed from the summit [of Mount Rainier] could hardly be surpassed in sublimity and grandeur; but one feels far from home so high in the sky, so much so that one is inclined to guess that, apart from the acquisition of knowledge and the exhilaration of climbing, more pleasure is to be found at the foot of the mountains than on their tops. Doubly happy, however, is the man to whom lofty mountain tops are within reach, for the lights that shine there illumine all that lies below.john muir
..the ever-present light blends with and vivifies all things. The idea was that 'nothing should be absolutely fixed,.. ..so that the bright gleam which lights the picture, or the diaphanous shadow which veils it, are only seen in passing, in the actual moment during which the viewer looks at the scene, which, composed at it is of reflected and ever-changing lights, palpitates with movement, light and life.
Dobby hears things, sir, he is a house-elf, he goes all over the castle as he lights the fires and mops the floorsJ. K. Rowling
Sand-strewn caverns, cool and deep, Where the winds are all asleep; Where the spent lights quiver and gleam; Where the salt weed sways in the stream.Matthew Arnold
Whoever lights the torch of war in Europe can wish for nothing but chaos.Adolf Hitler
The songwriting style, to me, is superior... there was a certain amount of joy in it, no matter how sad the song is. You get joy in listening to these Buddy Holly or Roy Orbison sad lyrics. I'm attracted to songs that have balance between the darks and the lights and giving them all equal opportunity.m. ward
I sing New England, as she lights her fire In every Prairie's midst; and where the bright Enchanting stars shine pure through Southern night, She still is there, the guardian on the tower, To open for the world a purer hour.william ellery channing
There is no such thing as an achieved liberty; like electricity, there can be no substantial storage and it must be generated as it is enjoyed, or the lights go out.robert h. jackson
I am as one who is left alone at a banquet, the lights dead and the flowers faded.Lytton
I feel like one who treads alone Some banquet hall deserted, Whose lights are fled, whose garlands dead, And all but he departed.thomas moore
Purity of character and salvation depend on purity of heart . We should, by living the life according to our lights share the best with one another, thus adding to the sum total of human effort to reach God .
What is that land of hill and daleThat is so beautiful,The land aglow with summer days,Land with the northern lights ablaze,Whose beauty all the seasons share,What is that land so fair?There many thousand lakes are brightWith twinkling stars at nightThere many kanteles resoundAnd all around make hillsides singAnd on the golden heath firs ring:That is the Finnish land.aleksis kivi
Since co-founding People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals 21 years ago, Ingrid Newkirk has emerged as one of the shining lights of the animal rights movement. Through the use of shock tactics and a continuing series of controversial media campaigns, Newkirk and PETA have been able to effect change where other animal rights activists have failed miserably. Although criticized at one point or another by seemingly everybody under the sun, PETA nevertheless has a world-wide membership of over 300,000 activists and continues to be one of the most visible animal rights organizations in the world.ingrid newkirk
But when you come right down to it the reason that we did this job is because it was an organic necessity. If you are a scientist you cannot stop such a thing. If you are a scientist you believe that it is good to find out how the world works; that it is good to find out what the realities are; that it is good to turn over to mankind at large the greatest possible power to control the world and to deal with it according to its lights and its values.j. robert oppenheimer
I have many ideas for lights. I will paint only lights at night. (on the twinkling city-lights, fh)mark tobey
The growing drama has outgrown such toys Of simulated stature, face, and speech: It also peradventure may outgrow The simulation of the painted scene, Boards, actors, prompters, gaslight, and costume, And take for a worthier stage the soul itself, Its shifting fancies and celestial lights, With all its grand orchestral silences To keep the pauses of its rhythmic sounds.
This, at least, is the accepted explanation, though like most economic explanations it seems, under certain lights, to omit the main point.ursula k. le guin
The Guide sang: The new age, the new art, the new ethic and thought, And fools crying, Because it has begun It will continue as it has begun! The wheel runs fast, therefore the wheel will run Faster for ever, The old age is done, We have new lights and see without the sun. (Though they lay flat the mountains and dry up the sea, Wilt thou yet change, as though God were a god?)C. S. Lewis
He who receives an idea from me, receives instruction himself without lessening mine; as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening me.
Sunset greeted them when, after a wide circle to the east and south, they cleared the divide of the Contra Costa hills and began dropping down the long grade that led past Redwood Peak to Fruitvale. Beneath them stretched the flatlands to the bay, checkerboarded into fields and broken by the towns of Elmhurst, San Leandro, and Haywards. The smoke of Oakland filled the western sky with haze and murk, while beyond, across the bay, they could see the first winking lights of San Francisco.
There is no music more for him: His lights are out, his feast is done; His bowl that sparkled to the brim Is drained, is broken, cannot hold.
So, as the Council of Trent declared, the Catholic Church, rich with the experiences of ages and clothed with their splendor, has introduced mystic benediction (mantra), incense ( dhupa ), water ( achamana ), lights ( dipa ), bells ( ghanta ), flowers ( w:Pushpanjalipushpa ), vestments and all the magnificence of ceremonies in order to excite the spirit of religion to the contemplation of the profound mysteries which they reveal. As are its faithful, the Church is composed of both body ( deha ) and soul ( atma ). It renders to the Lord (ishvara) a double worship, external ( bahyapuja ) and interior ( manaspuja ), the latter being the prayer ( vandana ) of the faithful.
