Light Quotes

One of the basic facts about light is that it reflects off surfaces and this reflection helps you see that object or surface. For example, it allows you to see your reflection in the mirror! And the reflection emits radiance and brightness depending on the amount of light reflecting from the mirror. While studying light, it is appropriate that you start from the Sun, the source of all the natural light we see around us. Following quotes about light will make you wonder how important light is for us!

He'd never heard of him, so watching him listen to Spike for the first time was just hilarious.
