Darkness vs. Light Crumbs

A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell.   C. S. Lewis

                                    

Beyond a doubt truth bears the same relation to falsehood as light to darkness.
Leonardo da Vinci 
                                                           

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.   Martin Luther King, Jr.                                                                                                                                                            

God is not a hypothesis derived from logical assumptions, but an immediate insight, self-evident as light. He is not something to be sought in the darkness with the light of reason. He is the light.   Abrahan Joshua Heschel

                                                                                  

I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.   Og Mandino                        

                                                                                                 

It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.   Eleanor Russel

                                                            

Once I knew only darkness and stillness… my life was without past or future… but a little word from the fingers of another fell into my hand that clutched at emptiness, and my heart leaped to the rapture of living.   Helen Keller

                        
                                                                                            

People are like stained – glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

 

 We stumble and fall constantly even when we are most enlightened. But when we are in true spiritual darkness, we do not even know that we have fallen.   Thomas Merton                                                

                                                                         

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.  Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.  And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.”  Genesis 1:1-3

                                     

And, does not God do the same thing for us?  In our darkness, God says, “Let there be light.”  And it is so.

You, O Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.  Psalm 18:28

                                                                          

For God who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.  II Cor. 4:6
