“Thou art glorified by such of Thy chosen ones as call upon Thee and by the sincere among Thy servants. Nay, the praise wherewith any one, in the entire creation, praiseth Thee proceedeth from this exalted self and returneth unto it, even as the sun which, while it shineth, sheddeth its splendor upon whatsoever may be exposed to its rays. From this sun is generated, and unto it must return, the light which is shed over all things.” —Baha’u’llah

She prefers to shoot still scenes that invoke feeling, and her favorite living thing to photograph is children.

    Agreed – very nice. Reminds me also of quotes about steel being made for/in our character – the work of light.
