Anne Frank
“Look at how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness.”
Anne Frank

George R.R. Martin
“When the sun has set, no candle can replace it.”
George R.R. Martin

Brandon Sanderson
“Those candle flames were like the lives of men. So fragile. So deadly. Left alone, they lit and warmed. Let run rampant, they would destroy the very things they were meant to illuminate. Embryonic bonfires, each bearing a seed of destruction so potent it could tumble cities and dash kings to their knees.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Way of Kings

“Each time a person passes by you and you say 'hello', imagine that person turning into a candle. The more positivity, love and light you reflect, the more light is mirrored your way. Sharing beautiful hellos is the quickest way to earn spiritual brownie points. You should start seeing hellos as small declarations of faith. Every time you say hello to a stranger, your heart acknowledges over and over again that we are all family.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Michael Cunningham
“A stray fact: insects are not drawn to candle flames, they are drawn to the light on the far side of the flame, they go into the flame and sizzle to nothingness because they're so eager to get to the light on the other side.”
Michael Cunningham, By Nightfall

“If you hold a candle close to you, its flame rises. And if you hold it away from you, its flame shrinks. The same way you hold a candle close to you, keep all your plans, aspirations, projects, and dreams close to you too. Do not share your plans or goals until you complete them, because as you hold your candle away from you — envy, jealousy, and resentment may put out your flame before it grows.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

John Wilmot
“This signior is sound, safe, ready, and dumb
As ever was candle, carrot, or thumb;
Then away with these nasty devices, and show
How you rate the just merits of Signior Dildo.”
John Wilmot, The Complete Poems

Kamand Kojouri
“Like a pair of old slippers,
I feel comfort and
warmth as I slip into you.
No, that is too crude.

Like the match to the wick,
I ignite when we touch.
My counterpart and
life's purpose.
Yes, as though I've known you my whole life.

Every scar,
every failure
has become an affirmation
of what should be:
Yes, as though I've loved you my whole life.”
Kamand Kojouri

Leo Tolstoy
“A little muzhik was working on the railroad, mumbling in his beard.
And the candle by which she had read the book that was filled with fears, with deceptions, with anguish, and with evil, flared up with greater brightness than she had ever known, revealing to her all that before was in darkness, then flickered, grew faint, and went out
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

“Live as intensely as possible, burn your candle of life from both ends.”
Osho, And The Flowers Showered Discourses On Zen

“When you have gone beyond thinking, and if you can still remain alert, aware, as if one is fast asleep but still alert—deep down at the very core of one’s being a lamp goes on burning, a small candle of light—then you will see your original face. And to see your original face is to be back in the Garden of Eden.”
Osho, The Secret of Secrets

Kamand Kojouri
“Do not give them a candle to light the way, teach them how to make fire instead. That is the meaning of enlightenment.”
Kamand Kojouri

Kamand Kojouri
“I've written you sixty-seven love poems.
Here’s another one for you.
But really, for me.
These poems are the candles that I light
with the fire you have ignited in me.
I place this candle here and another there
so even if the stars have argued with the moon
and are sulking away in a corner,
you can still find your way to me.
Sixty-eight poems now. What
does the future hold for us?
Joy? Disappointment? Gentle caresses? And subtle neglect?
I hope the good is more than the bad. Much more.
For what is the point of love
if by lighting these candles
our own flame loses its brightness?
I know the good is more than the bad.
Much more.
I cannot wait to write you sixty-nine.”
Kamand Kojouri

Jasleen Kaur Gumber
“A flame that flickered,
And a soul that whimpered,
A candle that blazed,
And a fragrance that raised.
The flames were fed the same,
But one remained diminished,
While the other touched vintage!”
Jasleen Kaur Gumber

“When the Illuminati thought of their name, they were hiding in a darkened room with one candle.
They are still hiding in that room with the same candle.”
Anthony T. Hincks

“It's the flame of a single candle which will illuminate the darkest of souls.”
Anthony T. Hincks

R.Y.S. Perez
“I love the way you lit candles, with the insistence that I never look, just so I can open my eyes and find the light in the darkness.”
R.Y.S. Perez, I Hope You Fall in Love: Poetry Collection

“In Hebrew teaching Ruach is the part of the flame closest to the wick. Nephesh is the part of the wick closest to the flame.”
J. Earp

Jasleen Kaur Gumber
“First, the thoughts are chosen,
then the prayers are spoken.
The candles are lit,
then the plea is submitted.
But soon after you move away,
there is wax;
melting, adulterating and braiding-
a new constellation up on your blanks.”
Jasleen Kaur Gumber

Mitch Albom
“ALS is like a lit candle: it melts your nerves and leaves your body a pile of wax..
you cannot support yourself standing.. you cannot sit up straight.
By the end, if you are still alive.. your soul, perfectly awake, is imprisoned inside a limp husk.. like something from a science fiction movie, the man frozen inside his own flesh.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

“People of this era are just like a butterfly that is controlled by candles' light where it follows the light in darkness without knowing where it is going to be destined similar to the people, they just insist on believing things that cannot be physically proven instead of doing what can make them to develop and successful, they just waste their time on beliefs (religious).”
Ntambara Sylvestre Owen Berbason

Daniel   Kemp
“The wind forgets. It will always forget as it never stays still long enough in one place for a memory to remain. A flame is the same. It flickers as though the memory is a painful one causing distress that needs evicting. It is only in that which is solid can a memory exist until it chiselled away by time. And there we have it; the longer we spend in reminiscing the more chance it is for the wind to extinguish the flame!

“I huddle in the dark with a mass of burnt matches strewn at my feet. And yet, for all of those matches I’ve not been able to light a single candle. And huddled in such deep darkness, I’ve somehow yet to realize that Christmas made both matches and candles forever obsolete.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Enock Maregesi
“The candle is the light of life that is constantly thriving to hang on and light up the darkness of life. Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere was a candle in the wind. He was a fighter fighting the odds to survive. And he did so with incredible power to change the world. Whether your life is long or short upon the earth, it is remarkable that our little flames burns on in spite of the wind, or the challenges of life.”
Enock Maregesi

“Birthday marks the beginning of a new year, new hopes and new dreams! So, we should never blow out the candle before cutting the cake on such a day. Let the candle burn! Let it spread light everywhere!”
Md. Ziaul Haque

Danielle Teller
“I was a candle that had never known a flame, and now that the flame was lit, I softened and glowed in a way I had not known was possible.”
Danielle Teller, All the Ever Afters: The Untold Story of Cinderella’s Stepmother

“Sensuality is a candle of passion that forever burns within us. But it's also a wildfire to some of us.”
Lebo Grand

“জন্মদিন নতুন বছরের, নতুন আশার ও নতুন স্বপ্নের শুরুকে নির্দেশ করে! তাই এমন একটি দিনে কেইক কাটার পূর্বে মোমবাতি নিভিয়ে দেয়া কখনো উচিত নয়। মোমবাতিকে জ্বলতে দিন! সেটাকে সর্বত্র আলো ছড়াতে দিন!”
Md. Ziaul Haque
