Here’s a great compilation to read through, when you’re not…

“Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow.”
— Helen Keller

“As I lived up to the highest light I had, higher and higher light came to me.”
— Peace Pilgrim {1908-1981), American Peace Activist

“One thing that comes out in myths is that at the bottom of the abyss comes the voice of salvation. The black moment is the moment when the real message of transformation is going to come. At the darkest moment comes the light.”
— Joseph Campbell

“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”
— Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965) German theologian, musician, philosopher, and physician

“Beautiful light is born of darkness, so the faith that springs from conflict is often the strongest and the best.”
— R. Turnbull

“Dare to reach out your hand into the darkness, to pull another hand into the light.”
— Norman B. Rice

“Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I’ve learned that whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.”
— Helen Keller

“I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year: ‘Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.’ And he replied: ‘Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the hand of God.’ That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.”
— Minnie Louise Haskins, The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, 2nd ed. (1953), 239

“I am not bound to win, I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live up to the light I have.”
— Abraham Lincoln

“I will love the light for it shows me the way. Yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars…”
— Og Mandino

“…Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
— Marianne Williamson

“We are each gifted in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light.”
— Mary Dunbar

“Like the light of a bright candle and the warmth of a fire’s glow, we brighten every corner when we let God’s love show.”
— Joyce C. Lock

“There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.”
— Edith Wharton

“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

“We cannot hold a torch to light another’s path without brightening our own.”
— Ben Sweetland

“No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see possibilities– always see them for they’re always there.”
— Norman Vincent Peale, author, speaker and minister

“It doesn’t matter how long we may have been stuck in a sense of our limitations. If we go into a darkened room and turn on the light, it doesn’t matter if the room has been dark for a day, a week, or ten thousand years – we turn on the light and it is illuminated. Once we control our capacity for love and happiness, the light has been turned on.”
— Sharon Salzberg (American Spritual Teacher and Author)
