Quotes:

Metaphysics is a dark ocean without shores or lighthouse, strewn with many a phlosphic wreck.  Immanuel Kant

For me, a writer should be more like a lighthouse keeper, just out there by himself. He shouldn’t get his ideas from other people all around him.  Robert M. Pirsig

FunDayToday’s prompt – create a poem or story with a lighthouse as the central character.
