and you have acquired some peace.

A richer flower than daisies.

I felt so lonesome I most wished I was dead. The stars were shining, and the leaves rustled in the woods ever so mournful; and I heard an owl, away off, who-whooing about somebody that was dead, and a whippowill and a dog crying about somebody that was going to die.

Charles Spurgeon
In the end, oh I know,
never, in my haggard passion,
have I ever been such a cadaver as now
as I take again in hand my tables of the present—
if reality’s real, but after it’s been
destroyed in the eternal and the moment by
the obsessive idea of a shining nothingness.
Pier Paolo Pasolini
Nothing is so painful to the human mind as a great and sudden change. The sun might shine, or the clouds might lour: but nothing could appear to me as it had done the day before.

Jessica Jung
And the dream we were conceived in will reveal a joyful face… and the world we once believed in will shine again in grace. Then why do we keep strangling life wound this Earth, crucify its soul. Though it’s plain to see, this world is heavenly. We could be God’s glow… Heal the world.
Michael Jackson
Oh, I’m developing a beautiful character! It droops a bit under cold and frost, but it does grow fast when the sun shines. That’s the way with everybody. I don’t agree with the theory that adversity and sorrow and disappointment develop moral strength. The happy people are the ones who are bubbling over with kindliness.
Jean Webster
In the maxims of the law, God is seen as the rewarder of perfect righteousness and the avenger of sin. But in Christ, His face shines out, full of grace and gentleness to poor, unworthy sinners.

Vladimir Nabokov
Dante Alighieri has the most glorious imagination of modern poetry. So it’s talking about us, it’s concerning us. Everything in it conveys sentiment, emotions. He is really the greatest poet ever. So I am really very proud to present the shining pearl of Italian culture around the world.

David O. McKay
I’ve written a lot of novels for teens and tweens … but I’d never really tackled the North Carolina side of me. And it’s so strong and so important, and yet I hadn’t acknowledged it. And so one of the things I wanted to do in “Shine” is take that on.
Lauren Myracle

Wiz Khalifa
When I was around 12 or so, I saw ‘The Shining.’ I just remember that being a turning point for me, where I started to think about the fact that there was a hand behind the film. That it wasn’t just this magical story being told – there were actual people crafting these films, and they were works of art.
Lee Unkrich
I’m naturally a personable person. I feel like figuring out ways to have my personality shine through outside of just a three minute song helped. I have layers, there are many different sides to Torae.

A false friend and a shadow attend only while the sun shines.
Benjamin Franklin

and everyone who sees it will
be made glad and peaceful.

Noam Chomsky
All of us, consciously or unconsciously, set out to have the best possible love life. Valentine’s Day simply shines a light on the degree to which that didn’t – or hasn’t yet – materialized.
Tracy McMillan
I am generalizing, of course, but in hip-hop, it’s like you get this shine for using the word “pussy” a billion times, and I think that that’s weirdly healthier than not doing it at all – even though I really hope it ends soon because, you know, how many decades can we do that?
Justin Vernon

Hear the music of Love Eternal
Teaching us to reach for goodness sake.
Jon Anderson
You make me smile like the sun, fall out bed, sing like a bird, dizzy in my head. Spin like a record crazy on a sunday night. You make me dance like a fool, forget how to breath, shine like the sun buzz like a bee, just the thought of you can drive me wild. Oh you make me smile.

Hildegard of Bingen
The One remains, the many change and pass;
Heaven’s light forever shines, Earth’s shadows fly;
Life, like a dome of many-coloured glass,
Stains the white radiance of Eternity,
Until Death tramples it to fragments.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
In every person there is a sun. Just let them shine.
Life is way too short to be focused on scales, weight and cellulite. If you can look in the mirror and know that you’re a beautiful, loving, friendly person who’s good to people, that’ll ultimately make you shine on the outside.
Teresa Palmer
It is easy to be pleasant when life flows by like a song, but the man worth while is the one who will smile when everything goes dead wrong. For the test of the heart is trouble, and it always comes with years, and the smile that is worth the praises of earth is the smile that shines through the tears.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
A word of advice: If you get the choice between the upper and lower bunks in a cell, choose the lower. Prisons do not turn off their lights at night, and I spent a sleepless night, without a mattress, with a five-hundred-watt bulb shining directly into my eyes.

Anticipated rents, and bills unpaid,
Force many a shining youth into the shade,
Not to redeem his time, but his estate,
And play the fool, but at the cheaper rate.

David Mixner

Craig Kilborn
When you’re in a relationship with someone who’s selfish, what keeps you in it is the fact that when they shine on you, it’s this souped-up shine. And you feel like you’re in the club. And you don’t even know what club it is. You just know you want to stay in it.

Elizabeth Cady Stanton
I see shining fish struggling within tight nets, while I hear orioles singing carefree tunes. Even trivial creatures know the difference between freedom and bondage. Sympathy and compassion should be but natural to the human heart.

John Donne
The sun also shines on the wicked.
Seneca the Elder
The greats are ‘The Shining’, ‘Rosemary’s Baby’, ‘Don’t Look Now’, ‘The Exorcist’ – those movies were not really slashers: they were about psychological terror and had very deep emotional backdrops. If we do our best, ‘6 Miranda Drive’ can be that kind of a movie.
Kevin Bacon
Abstruse and mystic thoughts you must express With painful care, but seeming easiness; For truth shines brightest thro’ the plainest dress.
Wentworth Dillon, 4th Earl of Roscommon
BJP’s agenda was all wrong. They claimed that India was shining. Is it a utensil which will shine when rubbed? They fooled the people by these slogans and tried to divide them on the lines of religion.

Federico Garcia Lorca

Marianne Williamson
So with the stretch of the white road before me,

Fields that are white, stained with long, cool, blue shadows,
Strong with the strength of my horse as we run.
Joy in the touch of the wind and the sunlight!
Joy! With the vigorous earth I am one.

Gustave Flaubert
In the external scheme of things, shining moments are as brief as the twinkling of an eye, yet such twinklings are what eternity is made of — moments when we human beings can say “I love you,” “I’m proud of you,” “I forgive you,” “I’m grateful for you.” That’s what eternity is made of: invisible imperishable good stuff.
Fred Rogers
I have always felt a gift diamond shines so much better than one you buy for yourself.
Mae West
The way of peace is a soul journey. . . . If you can live from the level of your soul, you are doing something very special.

Julia Quinn
Let your inner DORK shine through.

Edward Cocker
At times the truth shines so brilliantly that we perceive it as clear as day. Our nature and habit then draw a veil over our perception, and we return to a darkness almost as dense as before. We are like those who, though beholding frequent flashes of lightning, still find themselves in the thickest darkness of the night.
When the sun is shining I can do anything; no mountain is too high, no trouble too difficult to overcome. Only those who have learned the power of sincere and selfless contribution experience life’s deepest joy: true fulfillment. What great thing would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?

Harry Chapin
Those who shine with the glory of God are destined to become walking spiritual experiences for others. Those who covet being in His presence, soak in His love, quiet their souls and allow the Lord to change them, become transformed and grow from glory to glory. They become the ones who step up during such a time as this.
Julia Loren

Georg Jensen

That film, I mean “The shining” got me thinking about the way of telling stories and how effective it can be and how it can really shape people and move people to such a degree. It got me questioning storytelling.

[Kane to Rose] I’ll never forget the way you looked walking toward me. I never thought that I’d have a woman like you in my life. It’s all there etched in my brain.

Hazrat Inayat Khan
People always ask me what I think, if Edward Snoden is a hero, if he’s a villain. I don’t really tend to moralize it so much as I feel like he’s a whistleblower. He’s someone who saw a wrongdoing and in order to shine a light on that wrongdoing had to bend some rules and break some laws along the way.
Zachary Quinto
I sometimes like to sit in the silence and darkness and listen to my heart shine.
Frank D. Gilroy

Mary Oliver
The sun doesn’t stop shining because some people are blind.
Mark Nepo

Cassandra Clare
Anger, if used properly, might be for a cause, like helping feed children or stopping abuse somewhere. When we understand that every quality has importance and value, then we open up to this. Shining a light on these shadow qualities gives it balance.
Debbie Ford

Yehuda Amichai
If you see ‘The Shining’ with Jack Nicholson, you remember him not only because he is Jack Nicholson and because he does a wonderful job, but because he is a threat. The bad guy is someone people will have in their minds forever if it’s a good bad guy.

Dewitt Jones
Being a child is such a shining gift, yet we don’t know how precious it is until it’s worn out and gone away.
Storm Constantine
We all experience pain and suffering, but it is not the quintessential nature of life. Just because the earth turns away from the sun and night occurs doesn’t mean that the sun isn’t always shining. It might be hard to see sometimes, but goodness and divine beauty can always be found if you adjust your vision just right.
John Friend
Men of great and shining qualities do not always succeed in life, but the fault lies more often in themselves than in others.
Charles Caleb Colton
We’ve both with Justine Beck done other things – and do other things – outside of Glassjaw. But Glassjaw’s the most shining professional thing I’ve been part of. And the fact it’s happening on the scale is both an honor and it’s funny. Its hysterical. It’s a fun ride. The whole world’s different.
Daryl Palumbo
Time dissipates to shining ether the solid angularity of facts.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

The castled crag of Drachenfels, Frowns o’er the wide and winding Rhine, Whose breast of waters broadly swells Between the banks which bear the vine, And hills all rich with blossom’d trees, And fields which promise corn and wine, And scatter’d cities crowning these, Whose far white walls along them shine.
Lord Byron

Dale Carnegie

Jane Porter
Truth is a shining goddess, always veiled, always distant, never wholly approachable, but worthy of all the devotion of which the human spirit is capable.
Bertrand Russell
Beset by a difficult problem? Now is your chance to shine. Pick yourself up, get to work and get triumphantly through it. The time you spend living in fear is time you cannot spend living in love. The time you spend hiding and retreating from life is time you cannot spend growing and advancing and achieving.
Ralph Marston
When our star shines, someone else’s fades away; when our dream is fulfilled, someone else’s turns into a nightmare!

A delicate fabric of bird song
Floats in the air,
The smell of wet wild earth
Is everywhere.

I shall see again
The world on the first of May
Shining after the rain?

My dad is a really cool guy, but he showed me ‘The Shining,’ and I was like, ‘Hey, dad. I’m thirsty. Let’s go get a Coke.’ So we went to the vending machine, and he hid… and I turned back, and I was like, ‘Dad? Dad?’ And the elevator scene came to my mind.

Such phantom blossoms palely shining
Over the lifeless boughs of Time.

Lynda Resnick

Joshua Leonard
I’m a shining example of what happens if you’re willing to work hard.
Jack Swigert
Some of these kids just don’t plain know how good they are: how smart and how much they have to say. You can tell them. You can shine that light on them, one human interaction at a time.
Dave Eggers
There’s something in science like the shine of the Patronus Charm, driving back all sorts of darkness and madness.
Eliezer Yudkowsky
The same wind that uproots trees makes the grass shine. The lordly wind loves the weakness and the lowness of grasses. Never brag of being strong. The axe doesn’t worry how thick the branches are. It cuts them to pieces. But not the leaves. It leaves the leaves alone.
Both poet and painter want to reach the silence behind the language, the silence within the language. Both painter and poet want their work to shine not only in daylight but (by whatever illusionist magic) from within.
Howard Nemerov
The sun shines everywhere, not just at the beach.
Brande Roderick
How can I know anything about the past or the future, when the light of the Beloved shines only Now.
Water is best, but gold shines like fire blazing in the night, supreme of lordly wealth.

The sun and moon shine on all without partiality.
I follow my inner star. I AM a shining example of Love and Light.
Louise Hay
‘The Shining,’ ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street,’ ‘Halloween.’ Those are the greats.
Maika Monroe
Smile and others will smile back. Smile to show how transparent, how candid you are. Smile if you have nothing to say. Most of all, do not hide the fact you have nothing to say nor your total indifference to others. Let this emptiness, this profound indifference shine out spontaneously in your smile.
Jean Baudrillard
What is the past, after all, but a vast sheet of darkness in which a few moments, pricked apparently at random, shine?
John Updike

Henry Ward Beecher
You’re born to shimmer, you’re born to shine, you’re born to radiate
