“There are two ways of spreading light, to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.”
The above quote by Pulitzer Prize-winning American novelist and short story writer Edith Wharton is applicable on writers and bloggers too.
Writers, artists and in fact all creative people are lighting a candle. They spread the light of their wisdom and experience via their words, pictures or any other art form which may inspire and influence others, may even change their lives.
But if we, for whatever reason, lack inspiration or talent to be the light-giving candle, then it does not mean we cannot have a role in changing other people’s lives. If not the candle, then we can still be the mirror and spread the reflected light.
Of course, writers and bloggers at Word Press do that all the time when they share each other’s posts on their site, or when they encourage a good writer.
At Word Press, we have candles as well mirrors and also those who swap roles.
