Years steal Fire from the mind as vigour from the limb; And life's enchanted cup but sparkles near the brim.
My thoughtless youth was winged with vain desires, My manhood, long misled by wandering fires, Followed false lights; and when their glimpse was gone My pride struck out new sparkles of her own? Good life be now my task: my doubts are done; (What more could fright my faith thanThree in One?)john dryden
It seems to me the charm of etching is the glimmering through of the white paper even in the shadows so that almost everything sparkles or suggest sparkles.samuel palmer
The air grows cool and darkles, The Rhine flows calmly on; The mountain summit sparkles In the light of the setting sun.Heinrich Heine

The more the diamond is cut the brighter it sparkles; and in what seems hard dealing, there God has no end in view but to perfect His people .
