John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:5688
AUTHOR:George Gordon Noel Byron, Lord Byron (1788–1824)
QUOTATION:She was a form of life and light
That seen, became a part of sight,
And rose, where’er I turn’d mine eye,
The morning-star of memory!
Yes, love indeed is light from heaven;
  A spark of that immortal fire
With angels shared, by Alla given,
  To lift from earth our low desire.
ATTRIBUTION:The Giaour. Line 1127.
