Candle Quotations

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.

Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.

There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
Edith Wharton

You know you're getting old when you get that one candle on the cake. It's like, 'See if you can blow this out.'
Jerry Seinfeld

It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.
Eleanor Roosevelt
