“Light” Movie Quotes

Carin Manetti April 17, 2017
Given the importance of light in our lives, both figuratively and literally, it’s really not surprising how many times light is referenced in our favorite movies. Still, these movie lines don’t make very many top ten – or even top 100 – lists. How many do you recognize?

Number 10: “Wendy? Darling? Light, of my life. I’m not gonna hurt ya. You didn’t let me finish my sentence. I said, I’m not gonna hurt ya. I’m just going to bash your brains in.” Did we get your attention? Spoiler alert – Wendy doesn’t get her brains bashed in, but nevertheless, we don’t ever want the Finally bulb to be the light of his life.

Number 9: “Hey buddy did you just see a real bright light?” We’re guessing this futuristic bright light was not generated by cheap CFL technology.

Number 8: “It is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.” Sometimes proverbs can be so maddening. But we took this one to heart. Rather than cursing the new bulbs on the market, we got to work to develop the technology necessary to bring the right light to you.

Number 7: “But sometimes, finding the light means you must pass through the deepest darkness.” We don’t think this individual was speaking literally, but it did take us three years to perfect the right technology, and it was a little frustrating at times.

Number 6: “The people, who are trying to make the world worse are not taking a day off. How can I? Light up the darkness.” We share his commitment! We’re working hard to light up your life with the right light.

Number 5: “Do you think there’s a bit of light somewhere in the world? I think there is, you just need to know where to find it.” You can find more than a bit of the right light right here at our labs in Woburn, Massachusetts.

Number 4: “I’ve seen much of the rest of the world. It is brutal and cruel and dark, Rome is the light.” And we’ve seen much of the rest of the incandescent replacements. Acandescence is the light.

Number 3: “But you know happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, when one only remembers to turn on the light.” And Finally bulbs are instant on and instant restart – so there’s no reason not to turn them on.

Number 2: “May it be a light to you in dark places, when all other lights go out.” And our Finally bulbs will, even in those enclosed fixtures where most LEDs are not suitable.

Number 1: “After living in the dark for so long, a glimpse of the light can make you giddy.” Now, you know, a lot of people have said this to us about our Finally bulbs.
