Default One Candle

An archival shot with caption. Self explanatory.

Nice shot, Selvin,

I have a wallpaper obtained from Google. It shows one small candle and the caption reads "There are two ways to spread light -- Be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it!" Obviously a metaphor.

Walter, Calr, Bynx,
Thank you for your comments. It is surprising that this saying has more than one attribution. Most would assume it is Biblical but apparently it is of recent vintage.

Aloha

It seems like it should be preceeded by ..... "As Confuscius Says" it is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.
