Candle
 
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.)
  1
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.
