Light -

Light is shed upon the righteous and joy on the upright in heart. NIV Ps. 97:11

Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for the gracious and compassionate and righteous man. Ps. 112:4 NIV

Enable with perpetual light
The dullness of our blinded sight.
--Hymn, translated from Latin by Bishop Cosin of Durham (1594-1672)

You can't have a light without a dark to stick it in. - Arlo Guthrie (1947 &endash; )

The trained mind outs the upright soul,
As Jesus said the trained mind might,
Being wiser than the sons of light,
But trained men's minds are spread so thin
They let all sorts of darkness in;
Whatever light man finds they doubt it,
They love not light, but talk about it.
John Masefield, 'The Everlasting Mercy', November 1911
