How blessings brighten as they take their flight.
Edward Young brightens quote

There is a single light of science, and to brighten it anywhere is to brighten it everywhere.

If we work upon marble, it will perish; if we work on brass, time will efface it. If we rear temples, they will crumble to dust. But if we work on mens immortal minds, if we impress on them high principles, the just fear of God, and love for their fellow-men, we engrave on those tablets something which no time can efface, and which will brighten and brighten to all eternity.
— Daniel Webster
