|1. How far that little candle throws its beams!|
So shines a good deed in a naughty world.
2. When the moon shone we did not see the candle;
So doth the greater glory dim the less.
Shakespeare.Merchant of Venice, Act V. Scene 1. (Portia and Nerissa.)
|He that adds anything to you, tis done|
Like his that lights a candle to the sun.
Fletcher.To Sir Walter Aston, Line 19. Beaumont and Fletcher.Vol. II. Page 13. Dr. Young.Love of Fame, Sat. 7, Line 98.
