Quotations About / On: LIGHTING
He brings light, as only the great dare to bring light, to the issueless predicament of existence.
(Samuel Beckett (1906-1989), Irish dramatist, novelist. "Macgreevy on Yeats," p. 2, Irish Times, August 4, 1945.
Beckett is referring to the Irish painter and author Jack B. Yeats.)
(Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862), U.S. philosopher, author, naturalist. A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers (1849), in The Writings of Henry David Thoreau, vol. 1, p. 161, Houghton Mifflin (1906).)
Billboards, billboards, drink this, eat that, use all manner of things, everyone, the best, the cheapest, the purest and most satisfying of all their available counterparts. Red lights flicker on every horizon, airplanes beware; cars flash by, more lights. Workers repair the gas main. Signs, signs, lights, lights, streets, streets.
(Neal Cassady (1926-1968), U.S. beat hero. "Leaving LA by Train at Night, High ...," The First Third and Other Writings (1971).)
Erasmus was the light of his century; others were its strength: he lighted the way; others knew how to walk on it while he himself remained in the shadow as the source of light always does. But he who points the way into a new era is no less worthy of veneration than he who is the first to enter it; those who work invisibly have also accomplished a feat.
(Stefan Zweig (18811942), Austrian writer. Erasmus of Rotterdam, p. 71, trans. by Marion Sonnenfeld, Vienna, Austria, Herbert Reichner Verlag (1935).)
