‘Frankenstein’ was all about the idea that, through electricity and the destruction of night, man creating light and darkness, we took on god-like powers and then abused them like gods, and we are only men. That’s a story about man making a man in his own image. The inversion of natural order.

My mom and dad are from the streets. My mom’s from Chicago. My dad’s from Memphis. My dad got out of school and got with my mom. They were hustlers. They were from the streets.

The Self is self-luminous without darkness and light, and is the reality which is self-manifest. Therefore, one should not think of it as this or as that. The very thought of thinking will end in bondage.
Death has its revelations: the great sorrows which open the heart open the mind as well; light comes to us with our grief. As for me, I have faith; I believe in a future life. How could I do otherwise? My daughter was a soul; I saw this soul. I touched it, so to speak.
The light you see at the end of the tunnel is the front of an oncoming train.

George H. W. Bush

Taraji P. Henson
Life and death appeared to me ideal bounds, which I should first break through, and pour a torrent of light into our dark world.
Stained glass is unique from the outside, but as a painting insider, I know that oil painting’s all about light.

Growing up, all I learned was how best to diminish my own light for a partner.
Grace is not part of consciousness; it is the amount of light in our souls, not knowledge nor reason.

So we got there at 6 a.m. We’d be shooting by 6:45. We wouldn’t break for lunch, we’d just pass food around all day. And we would just rock and roll ’til 4, then Matty Libatique, our great cinematographer, would say, ‘Outta light, guys’ – and that was it.
Finding animals that make light in the ocean is easy. Just drag a net through the water anywhere in the upper 3000 feet, and as many as 80-90% of the animals you catch can make light. The biomimetic lure that I developed imitates one of these – a common deep sea jellyfish called Atolla.
I’m a minimalist Jew, but on Friday night, I celebrate Shabbat. At sundown, we light candles, say the blessing, and I don’t turn on my computer for 24 hours.

I need to have a quick wardrobe. Two or three blazers with dark gray pants, two pairs of jeans, two light blue shirts, a casual shirt, two pairs of shoes, one formal one not. Small accessories like Tod’s Greca belt and our woven bracelets for a wild touch.
Diego Della Valle
My journey through life has led me through both light and dark places, and it’s because of those experiences that I have learned how to work through my character defects and to help others do the same.
I won’t date a guy who doesn’t own a toolbox. I’m not saying you need to be able to knock down a wall or build a house or anything like that. But I’ve been out with a couple of guys who didn’t own toolboxes, and they couldn’t even change a light bulb.
I cannot write poetically, for I am no poet. I cannot make fine artistic phrases that cast light and shadow, for I am no painter. I can neither by signs nor by pantomime express my thoughts and feelings, for I am no dancer; but I can by tones, for I am a musician.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Begin challenging your assumptions. Your assumptions are the windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in awhile or the light won’t come in.

There’s a tremendous amount of work building the apparatus, getting the experiment to work. But sitting there late at night in the lab, and knowing light is going at bicycle speed, and that nobody in the history of mankind has ever been here before – that is mind-boggling. It’s worth everything.

Dwight L. Moody
Most people go, I wish for world peace. But chaos has a place in balancing out the light and the dark in the world. I don’t know if I would wish for world peace.

I’d be at these different clubs passing out my business cards and fliers. Then the club would end, the light would come on and all my business cards would be on the floor.

As I travel the world, it seems that younger people identify me merely with some of the folklore in the ‘Chuck Norris Facts’ – those hyperbolic sayings that elevate my abilities beyond my capabilities.

I was in my 30s when I quit my job and ran for Congress. So often, we’re told it’s OK to take these big career leaps when we’re in our 20s, but we cast such an unfavorable light on those who take big risks later on in their careers or when they start families. There’s enormous pressure to have it all figured out.

I tend to think of Pluto and its moons as presents sitting under a Christmas tree. They’re wrapped, and from Earth all we can do is look at the boxes to see whether they’re light or heavy, to see if something maybe jiggles a bit inside.

Solitude, though it may be silent as light, is like light, the mightiest of agencies; for solitude is essential to man. All men come into this world alone and leave it alone.

The poem is a little myth of man’s capacity of making life meaningful. And in the end, the poem is not a thing we see-it is, rather, a light by which we may see-and what we see is life.
Robert Penn Warren
We Orientals find beauty not only in the thing itself but in the pattern of the shadows, the light and darkness which that thing provides.

Glennon Doyle Melton
I always try to balance the light with the heavy – a few tears of human spirit in with the sequins and the fringes.
The truth is not a bidimensional thing; it’s not flat. It’s rounded; it’s like a sphere, so there’s always a hidden face. There’s one that is revealed because there’s light reflecting on it, but there’s always a hidden one, and once you go around to see the hidden one, it moves, and that’s life.
I like the sci-fi channel. Just science in general. I came across a segment on time travel and how time travel is possible.

The light at the end of the tunnel is just the light of an oncoming train.

Henry Ward Beecher
