A Quote by Edwin Percy Whipple on books, light, sea, and time

Books, - lighthouses erected in the great sea of time, - books, the precious depositories of the thoughts and creations of genius, - books, by whose sorcery times past become time present, and the whole pageantry of the world's history moves in solemn procession before our eyes; - these were to visit the firesides of the humble, and lavish the treasures of the intellect upon the poor.

Edwin Percy Whipple (1819 - 1886)

A Quote by Dave Matthews on dream, light, and mind

She runs up into the light surprised
Her arms are opened
Her mind's eye is
Seeing things from a better side than most can dream

A Quote by Van Morrison on light, magic, moon, and stars

Well, it's a marvelous night for a Moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes...
And I'm trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that they play soft and low
And all the night's magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush...
One more Moondance with you in the moonlight
On a magic night

Van Morrison

Out of the darkness comes light like a flash
You think you can, you think you can
Sometimes that is the problem
Dream little darling dream

Keep it locked up inside
Don't talk about it
Talk about the weather
Can't see the light
