Quotable Edith Wharton

Love this quote esp. In this period of May full moonrises and clear skies by us to. See it. And my lucky snapshot last night

Whimsical Words

 Edith Wharton American author, Edith Wharton, wrote The Age of Innocence and The House of Mirth. My favorite Wharton quote is: “There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.”

I like to think of the sun as the candle and the moon as the mirror – each spreads light, but how much more mysterious and magical is moonlight. Another way of looking at this quote is to think of the light as the written word – writers and readers alike can share the wonder of books with others.
