The stars which shone over Babylon and the stable in Bethlehem still shine as brightly over the Empire State Building and your front yard today. They perform their cycles with the same mathematical precision, and they will continue to affect each thing on earth, including man, as long as the earth exists.
(Linda Goodman (b. 1929), U.S. astrologer. Linda Goodman's Sun Signs, afterword (1968).)
It will be no excuse to an idle and untoward servant, who would not attend his business by candle-light, to plead that he had not broad sun-shine. The candle, that is set up in us, shines bright enough for all our purposes.
(John Locke (1632-1704), British philosopher. An Essay Concerning Human Understanding, bk. 1, ch. 1, sect. 5, p. 45, ed. P. Nidditch, Oxford, Clarendon Press (1975).)
' It makes your hair stand on end when you reflect on how much time and exertion has been wasted on the brilliancy of the Bible...And what...will have been gained from these ‘Facts'? Certainly nothing more than the knowledge that, like all books, the Bible was a book written by men...The more an elucidation shines upon the Bible the more it contains ordinary proofs...'
Love is like shine of the sun... It illuminates the whole world and drags away the darkness likewise love ignites feelings in ones heart and drags away his pessimistic thoughts regarding the outside world.
'There might be thousands of stars in the sky, but there will be only one that shines so bright...... there may be thousands of people in the world..... but there is only one friend who can fulfill being a friend....'
Should imagine every day as a life after death, every time thy wake up from sleep that is. With a whole new life would you not give it all? just to make it perfect and better than last. Striving for a better life everyday and make it all a beauty, a possibility to shine once more.
'When the Creator places in your life an angel, that guides you through and on your path, giving you knowledge and understanding. Life is about inspiring to be a better being, and all you can be. That's what makes this journey shine its rainbow colours and touch other souls with a dab of paint.'
