Let Virtue Shine Bright

Does the light of a lamp shine and keep its glow until its fuel is spent? Why shouldn’t your truth, justice, and self-control shine until you are extinguished?

…..Marcus Aurelius, from Meditations

The light of reason suffuses the universe. Whether the wick of your lamp is being lit for the first time, or after a long period of darkness, it makes no difference.

Here is where you are right now, and it’s the best place to let virtue shine and continue to shine for as long as you exist.
