Famous quotes containing the words verse and/or light:

    When I a verse shall make,
    Know I have prayed thee,
    For old religion’s sake,
    Saint Ben, to aid me.
    Robert Herrick (1591–1674)

    It is the essence of truth that it is never excessive. Why should it exaggerate? There is that which should be destroyed and that which should be simply illuminated and studied. How great is the force of benevolent and searching examination! We must not resort to the flame where only light is required.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)
