Whatever else history may say about me when I’m gone, I hope it will record that I appealed to your best hopes, not your worst fears; to your confidence rather than your doubts. My dream is that you will travel the road ahead with liberty’s lamp guiding your steps and opportunity’s arm steadying your way. ~ Ronald Reagan
Still the race of hero spirits pass the lamp from hand to hand.Charles Kingsley
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.
To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.Bojaxhiu

God is the Light of the heavens and the earth; the likeness of His Light is as a niche wherein is a lamp (the lamp in a glass, the glass as it were a glittering star) kindled froma Blessed Tree, anolivethat isneitherof the East nor of the West whose oil wellnigh would shine, even if no fire touched it; Light upon Light; (God guides to His Light whom He will). (And God strikes similitudes for men, and God has knowledge of everything.)The Koran
I should be able to get the alligators to dance to the tune of the pan pipe. (March 30, 1947) I should give all the works of Baudelaire for a female Olympic swimmer. (Letters to Milton Hindus) Experience is a dim lamp, which only lights the one who bears it.louis-ferdinand céline

Is it possible for the rose to say, "I will give my fragrance to the good people who smell me, but I will withhold it from the bad?" Or is it possible for the lamp to say, "I will give my light to the good people in this room, but I will withhold it from the evil people"? Or can a tree say, "I'll give my shade to the good people who rest under me, but I will withhold it from the bad"? These are images of what love is about.anthony de mello
He lit a lamp in broad daylight and said, as he went about, "I am looking for a human ."Diogenes of Sinope

When the lamp is shattered The light in the dust lies dead When the cloud is scattered, The rainbow's glory is shed.Percy Bysshe Shelley
A pardlike Spirit beautiful and swift A Love in desolation masked; a Power Girt round with weakness; it can scarce uplift The weight of the superincumbent hour; It is a dying lamp, a falling shower, A breaking billow; even whilst we speak Is it not broken? On the withering flower The killing sun smiles brightly: on a cheek The life can burn in blood, even while the heart may break.Percy Bysshe Shelley
As when the moon , refulgent lamp of night , O'er heaven 's clear azure spreads her sacred light , When not a breath disturbs the deep serene, And not a cloud o'ercasts the solemn scene; Around her throne the vivid planets roll, And stars unnumbered gild the glowing pole, O'er the dark trees a yellower verdure shed, And tip with silver every mountain's head; Then shine the vales, the rocks in prospect rise, A flood of glory bursts from all the skies.
An apt quotation is like a lamp which flings its light over the whole sentence.letitia elizabeth landon
And while the lamp holds out to burn, The vilest sinner may return.Isaac Watts
My lamp! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!
Love lent me wings; my path was like a stair; A lamp unto my feet, that sun was given; And death was safety and great joy to find; But dying now, I shall not climb to Heaven.
Oh, had I but Aladdin's lamp Tho' only for a day, I'd try to find a link to bind The joys that pass away.
Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,Old Time is still a-flying,And this same flower that smiles todayTomorrow will be dying.The glorious lamp of Heaven, the Sun,The higher he's a-gettingThe sooner will his race be run,And nearer he's to setting.Robert Herrick
