Five On Friday

I am still working on Christmassy things, so I don't have Christmas to share with you today, but, I do have wonderful candlelight and thoughts of light to bring light and hope to us all.


"Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."

Martin Luther King Jr.


"We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light."

Plato


"May it be a light to you in dark places, when all other lights go out."

J R R Tolkein


"We've all got both light and dark inside us.  What matters is the part we choose to act on.  That's who we really are."

J K Rowling


"How far that little candle throws his beams!  So shines a good deed in a weary world."

William Shakespeare

I leave you with a sneaky sixth quote....

"Love shine a light, in every corner of the world"

Kimberley Rew

I am, of course, linking with Five On Friday, you can find the link up here and enjoy everyone elses posts there too.

Happy Friday everyone.  I wish you all light and joy and hopes for a great weekend!

  3. Lovely post and beautiful quotes. I love candlelight. It just brings such peace and calm over me. I find nothing more relaxing than sitting in the dark with a couple of candles going. Of course, that's only if I have a choice, not imposed upon me as my power outage on Sunday lol.

  40. I love candles too, in fact your twirly one with the angels reminded me of a dinner party we had. We had a similar one but in wood and the whole thing caught fire when my husband and I were out of the room getting the guests drinks!
    Have a great week
