Silent Sunday: Light

“The Sun will rise and set regardless.

What we choose to do with the light while it’s here

is up to us.

Journey wisely.”

“Pointing to another world will never stop vice among us;

shedding light over this world can alone help us.”


Walt Whitman

“Whatever you are physically…male or female,

strong or weak, ill or healthy-

-all those things matter less

than what your heart contains.

If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior.

All those other things,

they are the glass that contains the lamp,

but you are the light inside.”


Cassandra Clare

Now there’s a word to lift your hat to…

to find that phosphorescence, that light within,

that’s the genius behind poetry.”


Emily Dickinson

“The Warrior of the Light is a believer.

Because he believes in miracles,

miracles begin to happen.

Because he is sure that his thoughts can change his life,

his life begins to change.

Because he is certain that he will find love,

love appears.


Paulo Coelho
