Light in the Darkness

"All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle." ~ St. Francis of Assisi

Let us be that single candle, spreading light into a dark world!

Welcome to my Light in the Darkness meme! (If you missed my post on the inspiration for this meme, you can read all about it HERE.)

This is the place to share good things that are happening in our world...whether it's a link to a news article/video, something from your personal experience...anything good that can bring light into darkness!
This week I'd like to share some quotes to inspire you to become "Light in the Darkness" for someone...whether it be someone you know or a stranger! What are some of your favorites?

"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about." (unknown, but a similar quote came from Plato)

"Never look down on anyone unless you're helping them up." (Jesse Jackson)

"Find something that makes you happy and use it to make others happy." (unknown)

"Be helpful. When you see a person without a smile, give them yours." (Zig Ziglar)

"Kindness is not an act. It's a lifestyle." (Anthony Douglas)

"The world is full of nice people. If you can't find one, be one." (unknown)

"In this life we cannot always do great things. But we can do small things with great love." (Mother Teresa)
