Light Of The World quotes by Anonymous
#1. 12 Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won't have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life. #Quote by Anonymous
Light Of The World quotes by Eric Hoffer
#2. The impression somehow prevails that the true believer, particularly the religious individual, is a humble person. The truth is the surrendering and humbling of the self breed pride and arrogance. The true believer is apt to see himself as one of the chosen, the salt of the earth, the light of the world, a prince disguised in meekness, who is destined to inherit the earth and the kingdom of heaven too. He who is not of his faith is evil; he who will not listen will perish. #Quote by Eric Hoffer
Light Of The World quotes by Isidore Of Seville
#3. Mary means enlightener, because She brought forth the Light of the world. In the Syriac tongue, Mary signifies Lady. #Quote by Isidore Of Seville
Light Of The World quotes by Augustine Of Hippo
#4. Run to and fro everywhere, holy fires, beautiful fires; for you are the light of the world, nor are you put under a bushel. He whom you cleave unto is exalted, and has exalted you. Run to and fro, and be known unto all nations. #Quote by Augustine Of Hippo
Light Of The World quotes by Robert Jordan
#5. To marry the Daughter of the Nine Moons!" "To die and live again, and live once more a part of what was!" "To give up half the light of the world to save the world! #Quote by Robert Jordan

Light Of The World quotes by Thomas Paine

Light Of The World quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#8. If you walk with the light of the world, you will have the light of life. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Light Of The World quotes by Marilyn Manson
#9. Let the ugly light of the world in, we are no longer blind. #Quote by Marilyn Manson
Light Of The World quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen
#10. As long as religious people are well dressed, well fed, and well cared for, words about being in solidarity with the poor will remain pious words more likely to evoke good feelings than creative actions. As long as we are doing well what others are doing better and more efficiently, we can hardly expect to be considered the salt of the earth or the light of the world. In short, as long as we avoid displacement, we will miss the compassionate life to which our Lord calls us. #Quote by Henri J.M. Nouwen
Light Of The World quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#11. The Bible is not the light of the world, it is the light of the Church. But the world does not read the Bible, the world reads Christians! "You are the light of the world." #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Light Of The World quotes by N. T. Wright
#12. Christmas is God lighting a candle; and you don't light a candle in a room that's already full of sunlight. You light a candle in a room that's so murky that the candle, when lit, reveals just how bad things really are. #Quote by N. T. Wright
Light Of The World quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#13. Wherever you see a wall, demolish it to broaden the horizons of the world! Wherever you see a tyrant, take him down to increase the light of the world! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Light Of The World quotes by John Charles Pollock
#14. In youth his mind had been closed, for every prejudice of upbringing was a disinfectant against pagan ideas. He now had an even more satisfying answer to the puzzles of human strivings and destiny. Paganism at its philosophical best would appear a gluttering candle to a man who had followed the Light of the World, and more usually it was idolatry, mixed with license. #Quote by John Charles Pollock
Light Of The World quotes by Billy Graham
#15. Each of us experiences clouds in life - sometimes slight, but sometimes dark and frightening. Whatever clouds you face today, ask Jesus, the light of the world, to help you look behind the cloud to see His glory and His plans for you. #Quote by Billy Graham
Light Of The World quotes by Anonymous
#16. Matthew 5:14-16

14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. #Quote by Anonymous
Light Of The World quotes by Pablo Neruda
#17. This means that we have barely disembarked into life, that we've only just now been born, let's not fill our mouths with so many uncertain names, with so many sad labels, with so many pompous letters, with so much yours and mine, with so much signing of papers. I intend to confuse things, to unite them, make them new-born intermingle them, undress them, until the light of the world has the unity of the ocean, a generous wholeness, a fragrance alive and crackling. #Quote by Pablo Neruda
Light Of The World quotes by Ivan Van Sertima
#18. You can not make yourself whole again by brooding one hundred percent of the time on the darkness of the world. We are the light of the world. #Quote by Ivan Van Sertima
Light Of The World quotes by Bertrand Russell
#19. Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth
more than ruin, more even than death. Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible, thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habits; thought is anarchic and lawless, indifferent to authority, careless of the well-tried wisdom of the ages. Thought looks into the pit of hell and is not afraid ... Thought is great and swift and free, the light of the world, and the chief glory of man. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Light Of The World quotes by Donna Goddard
#20. Every grievance you hold hides a little more of the light of the world from your eyes until the darkness becomes overwhelming. Everything you forgive restores that light. So ask yourself, who is it that you are really hurting? #Quote by Donna Goddard
Light Of The World quotes by Tennessee Williams
#21. I have been corrupted as much as anyone else by the vast number of menial services which our society has grown to expect and depend on. We should do for ourselves or let the machines do for us, the glorious technology that is supposed to be the new light of the world. We are like a man who has bought a great amount of equipment for a camping trip, who has the canoe and the tent and the fishing lines and the axe and the guns, the mackinaw and the blankets, but who now, when all the preparations and the provisions are piled expertly together, is suddenly too timid to set out on the journey but remains where he was yesterday and the day before and the day before that, looking suspiciously through the white lace curtains at the clear sky he distrusts. Our great technology is a God-given chance for adventure and for progress which we are afraid to attempt. Our ideas and our ideals remain exactly what they were and where they were three centuries ago. No. I beg your pardon. It is no longer safe for a man to even declare them! #Quote by Tennessee Williams
Light Of The World quotes by Frederick Denison Maurice
#22. The Light of the world is not put out. Now have death and the grave been converted into the great testimonies for life and immortality. Now may each man, who has the sentence of Adam upon him, know that he is a kinsman of the Son of God. Now may he follow Him; and so, when the darkness is thickest around him and within, not walk in it, but see the Light of Life. #Quote by Frederick Denison Maurice
Light Of The World quotes by Matthew West
#23. Happy Day After Christmas, Merry Rest of the Year, even when Christmas is over, The Light of the World is Still Here! #Quote by Matthew West
Light Of The World quotes by Virginia Woolf
#24. To let the light of the world flood back-to say this has not happened!
But why turn one's head hither and thither? This is the truth. This is fact. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Light Of The World quotes by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky
#25. Man is a little world--a microcosm inside the great universe. Like a fetus, he is suspended, by all his three spirits, in the matrix of the macrocosmos; and while his terrestrial body is in constant sympathy with its parent earth, his astral soul lives in unison with the sidereal anima mundi. He is in it, as it is in him, for the world-pervading element fills all space, and is space itself, only shoreless and infinite. As to his third spirit, the divine, what is it but an infinitesimal ray, one of the countless radiations proceeding directly from the Highest Cause--the Spiritual Light of the World? This is the trinity of organic and inorganic nature--the spiritual and the physical, which are three in one, and of which Proclus says that 'The first monad is the Eternal God; the second, eternity; the third, the paradigm, or pattern of the universe;' the three constituting the Intelligible Triad. #Quote by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky
Light Of The World quotes by Horatius Bonar
#26. Let your light shine. Do not obstruct it, or hide it, or mingle darkness with it. 'Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee' (Isa. 60:1). It is the light of love that you have received; let it shine. It is the light of truth; let it shine. It is the light of holiness; let it shine. And if you ask, How am I to get the light, and to maintain it in fulness? I answer, 'Christ shall give you light' (Eph. 5:14). There is light enough in Him who is the light of the world. 'The Lamb is the light thereof' (Rev. 21:23). There is no light for man but from the Lamb. It is the cross, the cross alone, that lights up a dark soul and keeps it shining, so that we walk in light as He is in the light; 'for God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. #Quote by Horatius Bonar
Light Of The World quotes by Andre Aciman
#27. The light of my eyes, I said, light of my eyes, light of the world, that's what you are, light of my life. I didn't know what light of my eyes meant, and part of me wondered where on earth had I fished out such claptrap, but it was nonsense like this that brought tears now, tears I wished to down in his pillow, soak in his bathing suit, tears I wanted him to touch with the tip of his tongue and make sorrow go away. #Quote by Andre Aciman
Light Of The World quotes by Leslie Soule
#28. Remember - the light of the world will never be diminished, so long as you are brave enough to carry the flame. #Quote by Leslie Soule
Light Of The World quotes by Anthony W. Ivins
#29. Inspired men have been raised up, who have given us our form of government, and the code of laws by which we are controlled, the best ever evolved by man, so far as we are able to judge. The Lord has strengthened the arms of the patriots who have defended us against the assaults of all those who have come up against us, and delivered us until today, from those who would have torn us asunder. Against all opposition, I sometimes think almost against ourselves, the Lord has brought us to our present condition, until this nation, like a city set on a hill, has become the light of the world. #Quote by Anthony W. Ivins
Light Of The World quotes by Claire Legrand
#30. You are the light of the world, and you will guide us home. #Quote by Claire Legrand
Light Of The World quotes by Fulton J. Sheen
#31. Buddha wrote a code which he said would be useful to guide men in darkness, but he never claimed to be the Light of the world. Buddhism was born with a disgust for the world, when a prince's son deserted his wife and child, turning from the pleasures of existence to the problems of existence. Burnt by the fires of the world, and already weary with it, Buddha turned to ethics. #Quote by Fulton J. Sheen
Light Of The World quotes by Jonathan Edwards
#32. This glorious Person came down from heaven to be 'the Light of the world,' that by him the beauty of the Deity might shine forth, in the brightest and fullest manner, to the children of men. #Quote by Jonathan Edwards
Light Of The World quotes by Sholem Asch
#33. Jesus Christ is the outstanding personality of our time. Every act and word of Jesus has value for us. He became the light of the world. Why shouldn't I, a Jew, be proud of that? #Quote by Sholem Asch
Light Of The World quotes by Pope Francis
#34. The Family is the salt of the earth and the light of the world, it is the leaven of society. #Quote by Pope Francis
Light Of The World quotes by Peace Pilgrim
#35. You can visualize God's light each day and send it to someone who needs help. Your divine nature must reach out and touch the divine nature of another. Within you is the light of the world, it must be shared with the world. #Quote by Peace Pilgrim
Light Of The World quotes by N. T. Wright
#36. If you are to shape your world in following Christ, you are called, prayerfully, to discern where in your discipline the human project is showing signs of exile and humbly and boldly to act symbolically in ways that declare that the powers have been defeated, that the kingdom has come in Jesus the Jewish Messiah, that the new way of being human has been unveiled, and to be prepared to tell the story that explains what these symbols are all about. And in all this you are to declare, in symbol and practice, in story and articulate answers to questions, that Jesus is Lord and Caesar is not; that Jesus is Lord and Marx, Freud and Caesar is not; that Jesus is Lord and neither modernity nor postmodernity is. When Paul spoke of the gospel, he was not talking primarily about a system of salvation but about the announcement, in symbol and word, that Jesus is the true Lord of the world, the true light of the world. #Quote by N. T. Wright
Light Of The World quotes by Dwan J. Young
#37. Hopelessness may be the saddest word in our language. Despair is the enemy of our souls. It can paralyze us, halt our progress, and cause us to lose our way. But hope awakens us like a light shining in the darkness. We can endure all things when our hope is centered in one who will never fail us-our Savior, Jesus Christ, who is the light of the world. #Quote by Dwan J. Young
Light Of The World quotes by Pablo Picasso
#38. Music and art are the guiding lights of the world. #Quote by Pablo Picasso
Light Of The World quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#39. How impossible, how utterly absurd it would be for the disciples
these disciples, such men as these!
to try and become the light of the world! No, they are already the light, and the call has made them so. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Light Of The World quotes by N. T. Wright
#40. Jesus himself, as the gospel story goes on to its dramatic conclusion, lives out the same message of the Sermon on the Mount: he is the light of the world, he is the salt of the earth, he loves his enemies and gives his life for them, he is lifted up on a hill so that the world can see. #Quote by N. T. Wright
Light Of The World quotes by Colishia S. Benjamin
#41. Jesus is the light of the world. His light shines through all darkness. His love heals all hatred. His grace and mercy forgives all sins. The anointing of his blood heals the sick and the lame. His guarding angels will forever protect you and his word will forever guide you. #Quote by Colishia S. Benjamin
Light Of The World quotes by Paulo Coelho
#42. You are the light of the world. Shine, and darkness will disappear. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Light Of The World quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#43. God is light of the world. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Light Of The World quotes by David Letterman
#44. He opened a window in my heart, and the light of the world shined in. #Quote by David Letterman
Light Of The World quotes by Rebecca   McLaughlin
#45. If Jesus is the Bread of Life, loss of Jesus means starving. If Jesus is the Light of the World, loss of Jesus means darkness. If Jesus is the Good Shepherd, loss of Jesus means wandering alone and lost. If Jesus is the resurrection and the life, loss of Jesus is eternal death. And if Jesus is the Lamb of God, sacrificed for our sins, loss of Jesus means paying that price for ourselves. #Quote by Rebecca McLaughlin
Light Of The World quotes by Robert Jordan
#46. And it came to pass in those days, as it had come before and would come again, that the Dark lay heavy on the land adn weighed down the hearts of men, and the green things failed, and hope died. And men cried out to the Creator, saying, O Light of the Heavens, Light of the World, let the Promised One be born of the mountian, according to the prophecies, as he was in ages past and will be in ages to come. Let the Prince of the Morning sing to the land that green things will grow and the valleys give forth lams. Let the arm of the Lord of the Dawn shelter us from the Dark, and the great sword of justice defend us. Let the Dragon die again on the winds of time.
-from Charal Drianaan te Calamon, The Cycle of the Dragon. Author unknown, the Fourth Age. #Quote by Robert Jordan
Light Of The World quotes by Wayne W. Dyer
#47. Not only do you become what you think about, but the world also becomes what you think about. Those who think that the world is a dark place are blind to the light that might illuminate their lives. Those who see the light of the world view the dark spots as merely potential light. #Quote by Wayne W. Dyer
Light Of The World quotes by Ted Dekker
#48. Will you follow my path and be the light of the world to shine in that darkness? #Quote by Ted Dekker
Light Of The World quotes by George MacDonald
#49. she was one of the lights of the world - one of the wells of truth, whose springs are fed by the rains on the eternal hills. #Quote by George MacDonald
Light Of The World quotes by Halldor Laxness
#50. The light of the world had more or less taken leave of this man, for he was almost blind.
(from 'The Fish can Sing') #Quote by Halldor Laxness
Light Of The World quotes by Ben Stein
#51. Every morning, I get up, get out of bed, and get on my knees and thank God for waking up in America ... (She is) the light of the world ... A nation of heroes ... The real stars are wearing body armor on top of their battle dress uniforms in 130 degree heat and they do not have stunt doubles to come in for them when the going gets rough and the bullets and the shrapnel start flying. They are the real stars, fighting terrorism and trying to free a nation. #Quote by Ben Stein
Light Of The World quotes by Joyce Meyer
#52. The Bible says that Christians are the salt of the earth and the light of the world. On the job, in the grocery store, even among unsaved friends and family members, God's people are there to bring seasoning to an unsavory situation. #Quote by Joyce Meyer
Light Of The World quotes by Martin Buber
#53. The abyss and the light of the world,
Time's need and the craving for eternity,
Vision, event, and poetry:
Was and is dialogue with you. #Quote by Martin Buber
Light Of The World quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#54. If you follow the light of the world, you will never walk in darkness. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Light Of The World quotes by Jarod Kintz
#55. I had a dream about you. You were a lone candle on a barren vanilla cake, and I was the mighty breath sent to extinguish your light. I felt like God's wrath coming down to destroy the Illuminati, while you probably thought I was the Satan coming to snuff out the light of the world. And the spectators who were gathered around the spectacle probably thought it was all one big party, as they stood still like mindless zombies singing "Happy Birthday." #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Light Of The World quotes by Anonymous
#56. Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, m I am the light of the world. Whoever n follows me will not o walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. #Quote by Anonymous
Light Of The World quotes by Vicki Tiede
#57. Nothing is too hard for our Lord God. Jesus is "the light of the world" (John 9:5) and "the light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it" (John 1:5). In other words, he can handle this, even when - or especially when - we can't. #Quote by Vicki Tiede
Light Of The World quotes by Billy Graham
#58. Christians are to be "the light of the world" [Matthew 5:14], illuminating the darkness caused by sin and giving guidance to a world that has lost its way. #Quote by Billy Graham
Light Of The World quotes by Anonymous
#59. He said, I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not be walking in the dark, but will have the Light which is Life. #Quote by Anonymous
Light Of The World quotes by Frederick Buechner
#60. Our own happiness, our own peace, can never be complete until we find some way of sharing it with people who the way things are now have no happiness and know no peace. Jesus calls us to show this truth forth, live this truth forth. Be the light of the world, he says. Where there are dark places, be the light especially there. Be the salt of the earth. Bring out the true flavor of what it is to be alive truly. Be truly alive. Be life-givers to others. That is what Jesus tells the disciples to be. That is what Jesus tells his Church, tells us, to be and do. Love each other. Heal the sick, he says. Raise the dead. Cleanse lepers. Cast out demons. That is what loving each other means. If the Church is doing things like that, then it is being what Jesus told it to be. If it is not doing things like that - no matter how many other good and useful things it may be doing instead - then it is not being what Jesus told it to be. It is as simple as that. #Quote by Frederick Buechner
Light Of The World quotes by Jerry Bridges
#61. It is clear from our Lord's prayer that He does not intend for us to withdraw from contact with the world of non-Christians (John 17:15). Instead, He said we are to be 'the salt of the earth' and 'the light of the world' (Matthew 5:13-14). #Quote by Jerry Bridges
Light Of The World quotes by Raymond Lull
#62. may it please our Lord to kindle a new light of the world which may guide unbelievers to conversion, that with us they may meet Christ, to whom be honor and praise world without end. #Quote by Raymond Lull
Light Of The World quotes by Russell Anthony Gibbs
#63. When you adopt the viewpoint that there is nothing that exists that is not part of you, that there is no one who exists who is not part of you, that any judgment you make is self-judgment,that any criticism you level is self-criticism, you will wisely extend to yourself an unconditional love that will be the light of the world.
- Harry Palmer #Quote by Russell Anthony Gibbs
Light Of The World quotes by Greg Boyle
#64. Jesus says, "You are the light of the world." I like even more what Jesus doesn't say. He does not say, "One day, if you are more perfect and try really hard, you'll be light." He doesn't say, "If you play by the rules, cross your T's and dot your I's, then maybe you'll become light." No. He says, straight out, "You are light." It is the truth of who you are, waiting only for you to discover it. So, for God's sake, don't move. No need to contort yourself to be anything other than who you are. #Quote by Greg Boyle
Light Of The World quotes by James Keller
#65. In Holman Hunt's painting, "The Light of the World, "Christ is shown in a garden at midnight, holding a lantern in His left hand. With His right hand He is knocking on a heavily paneled door. When the painting was unveiled, a critic remarked to the painter, "Mr. Hunt, the work is unfinished. There is no handle on the door." "That," Hunt answered, "is the door to the human heart. It can be opened only from the inside." #Quote by James Keller
Light Of The World quotes by John Hagee
#66. We are indeed the light of the world-but only if our switch is turned on. #Quote by John Hagee
Light Of The World quotes by Iyanla Vanzant
#67. You are the light of the world. You are an instrument of the Divine. You are the greatest miracle in the world. Life is graced by your presence. #Quote by Iyanla Vanzant
Light Of The World quotes by John Wycliffe
#68. We all are originally sinners as Adam and in Adam, his leprosy cleaving faster to us than Naaman's did to Gahazai, so that even the infant, before it has seen the light of the world, has this blemish inherent in its unborn members. #Quote by John Wycliffe
Light Of The World quotes by Dean Koontz
#69. Translating the words on the door, he said, "Light from light."
"Waste and void, waste and void. Darkness on the face of the deep," I said. "Then God commanded light. The light of the world descends from the Everlasting Light that is God."
"That is surely one thing it means," said Romanovich. "Bit it may also mean that the visible can be born from the invisible, That matter can arise from energy that thought is a form of energy and that thought itself can be concretized into the very object that is imagined. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Light Of The World quotes by Harper Lee
#70. One of them stepped from the crowd. It was Zeebo, the garbage collector. "Mister Jem," he said, "we're mighty glad to have you all here. Don't pay no 'tention to Lula, she's contentious because Reverend Sykes threatened to church her. She's a troublemaker from way back, got fancy ideas an' haughty ways - we're mighty glad to have you all." With that, Calpurnia led us to the church door where we were greeted by Reverend Sykes, who led us to the front pew. First Purchase was unceiled and unpainted within. Along its walls unlighted kerosense lamps hung on brass brackets; pine benches served as pews. Behind the rough oak pulpit a faded pink silk banner proclaimed God Is Love, the church's only decoration except a roto-gravure print of Hunt's The Light of the World. #Quote by Harper Lee
Light Of The World quotes by James Salter
#71. Summer mornings, the light of the world pouring in and the silence. It was a barefoot life, the cool of the night on the floorboards, the green trees if you stepped outside, the first faint cries of the birds. He arrived in a suit and didn't put it on again until he went back to the city. #Quote by James Salter
Light Of The World quotes by John Piper
#72. Reading and understanding the Bible involves lots and lots of interpretation. Not just in light of the world and culture around us, but in reference to other parts of the Bible. #Quote by John Piper
Light Of The World quotes by Abdu'l- Baha
#73. Do not despair! Work steadily. Sincerity and love will conquer hate. How many seemingly impossible events are coming to pass in these days! Set your faces steadily towards the Light of the World. Show love to all ... Take courage! God never forsakes His children who strive and work and pray! Let your hearts be filled with the strenuous desire that tranquillity and harmony may encircle all this warring world. So will success crown your efforts, and with the universal brotherhood will come the Kingdom of God in peace and goodwill. #Quote by Abdu'l- Baha
Light Of The World quotes by Stephen C. Magee
#74. In the person of Your Son, You have spoken the world into being. He is the Light of the World, and through Him Light was made. #Quote by Stephen C. Magee
Light Of The World quotes by Kenneth Adrian Ellis
#75. SPIRITUALLY ... THE WORLD DOES NOT HAVE ANYTHING "GOING" BETTER THAN JESUS(!) "THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD! #Quote by Kenneth Adrian Ellis
Light Of The World quotes by Stacey Chillemi
#76. The Words of an Angel

As I sit in a world of darkness
I look around to see no one
The cold wind has filled my soul
The rivers have poured inside my body
And the weight of the waters holds me back from seeing the light of day
What should I do?
I feel helpless,
Paralyzed in my own fears
And lost with no directions or roads to take
Suddenly, a felt a laser of energy bolt though my body
I yelled, "I'm so tired of feeling this way, I need help"
Suddenly, gold light appeared
And a man stood before me
You foolish man,
You choose this path the moment you chose to give up and wallow in your sorrows
I cannot help you
You need to help yourself.
There are no rivers in your soul holding you back from light of the world
The strength lies within you
Look in my eyes and tell me what you see
The lost man looked into the angels eyes and said, I see a man who gets his strength from helping others
He does not waste time focusing on useless matters
If you dig deep enough my child
You will find precious gift inside yourself
Gifts you never knew you had
Learn from others
Then help yourself
Once you helped yourself
Go out and help the world around you
Because many people feel as you do
The angel suddenly disappeared
The lost man was no longer lost
He was determined to waste no time
He was going to use his time to help others< #Quote by Stacey Chillemi
Light Of The World quotes by Martin Uzochukwu Ugwu
#77. Without Love, Life Would Be A Complete Darkness. #Quote by Martin Uzochukwu Ugwu
Light Of The World quotes by Kobayashi Issa
#78. To the fuki plant, dandelions, and their kind that lie for long patiently under the fallen snow, comes the season of breezy spring. No sooner do they see the light of the world, stretching their longing heads out from the cracks in the snow, than they are instantly nipped off. For these plants isn't the sorrow as deep as that of the child's parents whose child had accidentally died? They say everything in the plant and tree kingdom attains Buddhahood. Then they, too, must have Buddha-nature. #Quote by Kobayashi Issa
Light Of The World quotes by Marcus J. Borg
#79. Are we among those who yearn for the coming of the kingdom of justice and peace, who seek peace through justice? Or do we, like advocates of imperial theology, seek peace through victory? Where do we see the light of the world? Is America, the American empire, the light shining in the darkness? Jim Wallis, in his important book God's Politics, reports that our president on the first anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 2001 spoke of America as "the light shining in the darkness."1 The statement is remarkably similar to Rome's claim to be Apollo, the bringer of light. Or do we see the light of the world in Jesus, who stood against empire and indeed was executed by imperial authority? #Quote by Marcus J. Borg
Light Of The World quotes by Hannah Kent
#80. How can I say what it was like to breathe again? I felt newborn. I staggered in the light of the world and took deep gulps of fresh sea air. It was late in the day: the wet mouth of the afternoon was full on my face. My soul blossomed in that brief moment as they led me out of doors. I fell, my skirts in the mud, and I turned my face upwards as if in prayer. I could have wept from the relief of light. #Quote by Hannah Kent
Light Of The World quotes by James Baldwin
#81. Perhaps such secrets, the secrets of everyone, were only expressed when the person laboriously ragged them into the light of the world, imposed them on the world, and made them a part of the world's experience. Without this effort, the secret place was merely a dungeon in which the person perished; without this effort, indeed, the entire world would be an uninhabitable darkness; and she saw, with a dreadful reluctance why this effort was so rare. #Quote by James Baldwin
Light Of The World quotes by Ricky Maye
#82. Being the light of the world is about being a broken, exploding, scarred star and shining a light of hope and inspiration to everyone around you. #Quote by Ricky Maye
Light Of The World quotes by Mabel Collins
#83. For within you is the light of the world - the only light that can be shed upon the Path. #Quote by Mabel Collins
Light Of The World quotes by Sadhu Sundar Singh
#84. Those who determine not to put self to death will never see the will of God fulfilled in their lives. Those who ought to become the light of the world must necessarily burn and become less and less. By denying self, we are able to win others. #Quote by Sadhu Sundar Singh

#85. Unto us Saviour is born at Christmas.

Light Of The World quotes by Richard Rohr
#86. To finally surrender ourselves to healing, we have to have three spaces opened up within us - and all at the same time: our opinionated head, our closed-down heart, and our defensive and defended body. That is the summary work of spirituality - and it is indeed work. Yes, it is also the work of "a Power greater than ourselves," and it will lead to a great luminosity and depth of seeing. That is why true faith is one of the most holistic and free actions a human can perform. It leads to such broad and deep perception that most traditions would just call it "light."

Remember, Jesus said that we also are the light of the world (Matthew 5:14), as well as saying it about himself (John 8:12). Strange that we see light in him but do not imitate him in seeing the same light in ourselves. Such luminous seeing is quite the opposite of the closed-minded, dead-hearted, body-denying thing that much religion has been allowed to become. As you surely have heard before, "Religion is lived by people who are afraid of hell. Spirituality is lived by people who have been through hell and come out enlightened."

The innocuous mental belief systems of much religion are probably the major cause of atheism in the world today, because people see that religion has not generally created people who are that different, more caring, or less prejudiced than other people. In fact, they are often worse because they think they have God on their small side. I wish I did not have to say thi #Quote by Richard Rohr
Light Of The World quotes by Marcus Borg
#87. The titles of Jesus (son of God, messiah, light of the world, etc.) are not found in the earliest layer of tradition and are not part of self proclamation of Jesus. This does not make them wrong. Rather, they are the voice of the community, statements about what people around Jesus thought of him. #Quote by Marcus Borg
Light Of The World quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#88. The light of the world will illuminate within you when you fast and purify yourself. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Light Of The World quotes by Jeffrey R. Holland
#89. Every one of us has times when we need to know things will get better. Moroni spoke of it in the Book of Mormon as "hope for a better world." (Ether 12:4) For emotional health and spiritual stamina, everyone needs to be able to look forward to some respite, to
something pleasant and renewing and hopeful, whether that blessing be near at hand or still some distance ahead. It is enough just to know we can get there, that however measured or far away, there is the promise of "good things to come."
. . . [T]his is precisely what the gospel of Jesus Christ offers us . . . There is help. There is happiness. There really is light at the end of the tunnel. It is the Light of the World, the Bright and Morning Star, the "light that is endless, that can never be darkened." (see John 8:12; Rev 22:16; Mosiah 16:9) It is the very Son of God Himself. . . . To any who may be struggling to see that light and find that hope, I say: Hold on. Keep trying. God loves you. Things will improve. Christ comes to you in His "more excellent ministry" with a future of "better promises. #Quote by Jeffrey R. Holland
Light Of The World quotes by Rick Warren
#90. God's glory is best seen in Jesus Christ. He, the Light of the World, illuminates God's nature. Because of Jesus, we are no longer in the dark about what God is really like. The Bible says, "The Son is the radiance of God's glory."5 Jesus came to earth so we could fully understand God's glory. "The Word became human and lived among us. We saw his glory ... a glory full of grace and truth. #Quote by Rick Warren
Light Of The World quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#91. Did I know him? Did I love him? You ask me that? I knew him like you know nobody in the world, and I loved him like you love God. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Light Of The World quotes by A.W. Tozer
#92. The interior journey of the soul from the wilds of sin into the enjoyed Presence of God is beautifully illustrated in the Old Testament tabernacle. The returning sinner first entered the outer court where he offered a blood sacrifice on the brazen altar and washed himself in the laver that stood near it. Then through a veil he passed into the holy place where no natural light could come, but the golden candlestick which spoke of Jesus the Light of the World threw its soft glow over all. There also was the shewbread to tell of Jesus, the Bread of Life, and the altar of incense, a figure of unceasing prayer. #Quote by A.W. Tozer
Light Of The World quotes by Anonymous
#93. You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; 15nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. #Quote by Anonymous

Light Of The World quotes by Mary Borsellino
#95. Just being with them, skin on skin and breath on breath, was my favorite thing in the world. I loved them both so fucking much.

I was so scared of it ending. I was so scared of the world intruding, of things coming between us. Of there someday being an end to our little world of three.

Better to burn it than to watch it fade and wither. #Quote by Mary Borsellino
Light Of The World quotes by Neil Pasricha
#96. Our pals over at Wikipedia make hair sounds like the sun of fresh water, saying in their snooty tone that head hair has "gained an important significance in nearly all present societies as well as any given historical period throughout the world". But then again, those lovable eggheads can make anything sound pretty serious. #Quote by Neil Pasricha
Light Of The World quotes by Al-Ma'arri
#97. The world holds two classes of men - intelligent men without religion, and religious men without intelligence. #Quote by Al-Ma'arri
Light Of The World quotes by Albert Hofmann
#98. The characteristic property of hallucinogens, to suspend the boundaries between the experiencing self and the outer world in an ecstatic, emotional experience, makes it posible with their help, and after suitable internal and external perparation ... to evoke a mystical experience according to plan, so to speak ... I see the true importance of LSD in the possibility of providing material aid to meditation aimed at the mystical experience of a deeper, comprehensive reality. Such a use accords entirely with the essence and working character of LSD as a sacred drug. #Quote by Albert Hofmann
Light Of The World quotes by Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
#99. All that you have to do is make proper use of imitation in what you write, and the more perfect the imitation the better will your writing be. Inasmuch as you have no other object in view than that of overthrowing the authority and prestige which books of chivalry enjoy in the world at large and among the vulgar, there is no reason why you should go begging maxims of the philosophers, counsels of Holy Writ, fables of the poets, orations of the rhetoricians, or miracles of the saints; see to it, rather, that your style flows along smoothly, pleasingly, and sonorously, and that your words are the proper ones, meaningful and well placed, expressive of your intention in setting them down and of what you wish to say, without any intricacy or obscurity.

Let it be your aim that, by reading your story, the melancholy may be moved to laughter and the cheerful man made merrier still; let the simple not be bored, but may the clever admire your originality; let the grave ones not despise you, but let the prudent praise you. And keep in mind, above all, your purpose, which is that of undermining the ill-founded edifice that is constituted by those books of chivalry, so abhorred by many but admired by many more; if you succeed in attaining it, you will have accomplished no little. #Quote by Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra

#101. I think I'm just someone that just tries to get by. I'm kind of - if it was during the Second World War, I'd be a black marketeer, I think. #Quote by Craig Ferguson
Light Of The World quotes by Rudolf Hess
#102. I hope that the outside world will realise that Hitler's government has no idea of steering towards war, even though this has often been asserted abroad. As Adolf Hitler himself has said, Germany has no need of another war to avenge the loss of her military honour, because she never lost that honour. Germany does not want war of any kind. Germany wants real and abiding peace. #Quote by Rudolf Hess
Light Of The World quotes by Dag Hammarskjold
#103. You are not the oil, you are not the air - merely the point of combustion, the flash-point where the light is born. You are merely the lens in the beam. You can only receive, give, and possess the light as the lens does. If you seek yourself, you rob the lens of its transparency. You will know life and be acknowledged by it according to your degree of transparency - your capacity, that is, to vanish as an end and remain purely as a means. #Quote by Dag Hammarskjold
Light Of The World quotes by Peter Mandelson
#104. Instead of saying that globalization is a fact, that it's inevitable, we've also got to demonstrate that while the growing interdependence of the world economy is indeed a fact, it's not uncontrollable. #Quote by Peter Mandelson

Light Of The World quotes by Terry Pratchett
#111. A philosopher might have deplored this lack of mental ambition, but only if he was really certain about where his next meal was coming from.
In fact Lancre's position and climate bred a hard-headed and straightforward people who often excelled in the world down below. it had supplied the planins with many of their greatest wizards and witches and, once again, the philospher might have marveled that such a four-square people could give the world so many successful magical practitioners, being quite unaware that only those with their feet on rock can build castles in the air. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Light Of The World quotes by John Keegan
#112. Slavery in the modern world implies the absolute deprivation of the individual's liberty, while possession of weapons and mastery of their use are means to the individual's liberation. We do not perceive how a man may be armed and at the same time bereft of his freedom. #Quote by John Keegan
Light Of The World quotes by Ramona Wray
#113. Funny how I always thought the world would dilate and then snap back with a loud bang the day a boy happened to me. But there was no explosion, no fireworks, no sudden shift in the tectonic plates of the earth. It was more of a Zen moment - Quiet. Everything was instantly quiet. The world, my mind, the flux of time - all still. And in the middle of it was him. #Quote by Ramona Wray
Light Of The World quotes by Rollo May
#114. What genuine painters do is to reveal the underlying psychological and spiritual conditions of their relationship to their world; thus in the works of a great painter we have a reflection of the emotional and spiritual condition of human beings in that period of history. If you wish to understand the psychological and spiritual temper of any historical period, you can do no better than to look long and searchingly at its art. For in the art the underlying spiritual meaning of the period is expressed directly in symbols. This is not because artists are didactic or set out to teach or to make propaganda; to the extend that they do, their power of expression is broken; their direct relations to the inarticulate, or, if you will, 'unconscious' levels of the culture is destroyed. They have the power to reveal the underlying meaning of any period precisely because the essence of art is the powerful and alive encounter between the artist and his or her world. (pg 52) #Quote by Rollo May

Light Of The World quotes by Karen Armstrong
#119. Compassion impels us to work tirelessly to alleviate the suffering of our fellow creatures, to dethrone ourselves from the centre of our world and put another there, and to honour the inviolable sanctity of every single human being, treating everybody, without exception, with absolute justice, equity and respect. #Quote by Karen Armstrong

Light Of The World quotes by Maggie Young
#121. It wasn't really a loud-mouthed, hyperactive little pig-tailed blonde that made Carl cringe. It was what I represented. While his upbringing was battered humiliation, I was spoiled, doted on, and spoon-fed by the world. I don't think he was even aware of his intentions to reduce that child to his own state of self-loathing, but he was truly brilliant at it. #Quote by Maggie Young
Light Of The World quotes by Sophia Amoruso
#122. He said that he felt like he'd "gotten off at the wrong stop," as if there's a bus traveling through space and time that randomly opens its doors and drops souls off to live through whatever time they're assigned. I don't believe we're all fit for the time we're assigned. It's a weird world we live in, and until time travel exists we've all got to make the most of where we land. #Quote by Sophia Amoruso

Light Of The World quotes by Robby Krieger
#124. The chords in 'Light My Fire' are based on [John] Coltrane's version of this song. He just solos over A minor and B minor, which is exactly what we did. Coltrane had played with Miles on Kind of Blue and took the idea of modal soloing over one or two chords farther out than anybody. He was a real pioneer - he just kept evolving, going where no one had ever gone. He could always attain this state of ecstasy when he played. Live, there was so much energy, you couldn't believe it. He would play for hours. It was indescribable. #Quote by Robby Krieger
Light Of The World quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#125. Talk of mysteries! - Think of our life in nature, - daily to be shown matter, to come in contact with it, - rocks, trees, wind on our cheeks! The solid earth! The actual world! The common sense! Contact! Contact! Who are we? Where are we? #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Light Of The World quotes by Douglas Gresham
#126. There are 3 kinds of magic in our world. The peddling little magician magic like Uncle Andrew in 'The Magicians Newphew' where people mess around with things they don't understand. It's movie magic. Then there is the magic of the evil side of things. The demonic forces. And that's not really magic ... it's corruption of what really exists. And then finally there is the magic of the Holy Spirit of God which is the creation and maintenence of the universe. We don't understand it ... and we haven't the faintest idea how He does it. But it's real. That's the deep magic. #Quote by Douglas Gresham
Light Of The World quotes by Christopher Marlowe
#127. From jygging vaines of riming mother wits,
And such conceits as clownage keepes in pay,
Weele leade you to the stately tent of War:
Where you shall heare the Scythian Tamburlaine,
Threatning the world with high astounding tearms
And scourging kingdoms with his conquering sword.
View but his picture in this tragicke glasse,
And then applaud his fortunes if you please. #Quote by Christopher Marlowe
Light Of The World quotes by Julie Holland
#128. Our bodies are wiser than we ever imagined, and so much of what plagues them is interrelated. Overmedication has robbed us of our sense of control, and modern life has separated us from the restorative rhythms of nature. It is understandable to respond to the man-made madness of this world with tears and frustration; those feelings of distress are a pathway toward health and wholeness. We need to tune in to our discomfort, not turn it down. Being #Quote by Julie Holland

Light Of The World quotes by Jamie Lee Curtis
#133. I don't have great thighs. I have very big breasts and a soft, fatty little tummy. And I've got back fat. People assume that I'm walking around in little spaghetti-strap dresses. It's insidious - Glam Jamie, the Perfect Jamie, the great figure, blah, blah, blah. And I don't want the unsuspecting 40-year-old women of the world to think that I've got it going on. It's such a fraud. And I'm the one perpetuating it. #Quote by Jamie Lee Curtis

Light Of The World quotes by David Holdsworth
#137. The heart of man's problem is the problem of man's heart. Scripture says that the heart of man is wicked and God requires a broken and contrite heart. King David though a man with a bad past, who journeyed to repentance, was called 'a man after God's own heart.' On the road to Emmaus two fellows unwittingly entered fellowship with God himself. When they realised it was Jesus they exclaimed 'Did not our hearts burn within us as we talked with him along the way.' It was these and others of the upper room who went on to turn the world upside down. The early followers of Jesus were the start of a revolution of the heart.

O that we would live with vision that revolution of the heart. In the words of the hymn - Be Thou My Vision: 'Christ of my own heart, whatever befall.
Still be my vision, O ruler of all'. #Quote by David Holdsworth
