  1. "There are two kinds of light - the glow that illuminates and the glare that obscures." James Thurber
  2. Does this gentleman go more in depth to the meaning of this quote
  3. Hi Cturtle: I got this one line quote from a daily affirmation for the recently bereaved that I receive from my funeral director each day. I'm sure that if you googled James Thurber, it would be possible to find the context in which this quote was written. I like to view it in my own interpretation - that gentle warmth shows the true person, whereas those that are brash and attention seeking simply blind others with their bravado. This is why I like this quote - there are so many ways to view it based upon your own experience and interpretation. As vague as it is, there is something truthful and comforting at the heart of it. For this reason, I find it intriguing.
    godbe4me and Cturtle say Amen and like this.
  4. Thank you so much for taking the time to respond. I surely appreciate it. And enjoyed hearing your interpretation of it.

    God bless you!
