The stars don't look bigger, but they do look brighter.
You forget, fuzzy elf … I'm Phoenix. If I die it's only to be reborn hopefully better and brighter than before.
Hope, like the gleaming taper's light, Adorns and cheers our way; And still, as darker grows the night, Emits a brighter ray.Oliver Goldsmith
"The bud, though plucked, would not be withered, only transplanted to a fitter soil to ripen and blow beneath a brighter sun; and though I might not cherish and watch my child's unfolding intellect, he would be snatched away from all the suffering and sins of earth; and my understanding tells me this would be no great evil; but my heart shrinks from the contemplation of such a possibility, and whispers I could not bear to see him die."anne brontë

The world always seems brighter when you've just made something that wasn't there before.neil gaiman
Some might say that sunshine follows thunder / Go and tell it to the man who cannot shine / Some might say that we should never ponder / On our thoughts today 'cos they hold sway over timeSome might say / We will find a brighter daySome might say they don't believe in heaven / Go and tell it to the man who lives in hell" *Noel Gallagher
And now her eyes grew bright, and brighter still,Too bright for ours to look upon, suffusedWith many tears, and closed without a cloud.They set as sets the morning star, which goesNot down behind the darkened west, nor hidesObscured among the tempests of the sky,But melts away into the light of heaven.robert pollok
The light comes brighter from the east; the cawOf restive crows is sharper on the ear.theodore roethke
The Divine government of the world is like a stream that rolls under us; men are only as bubbles that rise on its surface; some are brighter and larger, and sparkle longer in the sun than others; but all must break; whilst the mighty current rolls on in its wonted majesty!thomas david
She was a young person whose reveries never were in retrospect. For her past was no treasury of distinct memories, all hoarded and classified, some brighter than others and more highly valued. All memories were for her but as notes in one fused radiance that followed her and made more luminous the pathway of her future.max beerbohm
The Americans have always been more open to my ideas. In fact, I could earn a living in America just by lecturing. One of my brightest audiences, incidentally, were the prisoners in a Philadelphia gaol - brighter than my students at university.colin wilson
The Divine government of the world is like a stream that rolls under us; men are only as bubbles that rise on its surface; some are brighter and larger, and sparkle longer in the sun than others; but all must break; whilst the mighty current rolls on in its wonted majesty!
The candle by which she had been reading the book filled with trouble and deceit, sorrow and evil, flared up with a brighter light, illuminating for her everything that before had been enshrouded in darkness, flickered, grew dim, and went out forever.
Of such as he was, there be few on earth; Of such as he is, there are few in Heaven: And life is all the sweeter that he lived, And all he loved more sacred for his sake: And Death is all the brighter that he died, And Heaven is all the happier that he's there.gerald massey
The east is blossoming! Yea, a rose, Vast as the heavens, soft as a kiss, Sweet as the presence of woman is, Rises and reaches, and widens and grows Large and luminous up from the sea, And out of the sea, as a blossoming tree, Richer and richer, so higher and higher, Deeper and deeper it takes its hue; brighter and brighter it reaches through The space of heaven and the place of stars, Till all is as rich as a rose can be, And my rose-leaves fall into billows of fire.joaquin miller
Oh, how beautiful land is our Mazovia! There be clean water, and air fresher! Bigger Pine trees and girls prettier, People stronger and sky is brighter.
Lift thyself up, look. around, and see something higher and brighter than earth, earthworms, and earthly darkness.
But the good deed, through the ages Living in historic pages, brighter grows and gleams immortal, Unconsumed by moth or rust.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
But thou dost make the very night itself brighter than day.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
