Famous quotes containing the word light:

    If with light head erect I sing,
    Though all the muses lend their force,
    From my poor love of anything,
    The verse is weak and shallow as its source.

    But if with bended neck I grope,
    Listening behind me for my wit,
    With faith superior to hope,
    More anxious to keep back than forward it,
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    My dream is that as the years go by and the world knows more and more of America, it ... will turn to America for those moral inspirations that lie at the basis of all freedom ... that America will come into the full light of the day when all shall know that she puts human rights above all other rights, and that her flag is the flag not only of America but of humanity.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)
