The Candle

A candle at Le Balico.

"Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared."
- Buddha

Note: Since posting this, sadly Le Balico has been sold and is now under new management.


  1. Buddha knew what he was talking about. So much wisdom there. And of course, your photo is beautiful in its soft shades.

  2. I like this photo, and the quote. Buddhism is an attractive set of beliefs when set alongside organised religions.

  3. That's so warm and glowy! Thanks for your visits recently, and sorry I haven't been around much lately - it's just the busy-ness of life. My health is great by the way, so that's one good thing.
    Am going to spend time lookign back thru the past few weeks in Menton and Monte Carlo now. :-)

  4. what a great saying !!! thanks for sharing.

  5. Gorgeous image and beautiful quote. V

    I love everything about this post - the photo and the Buddha quote - It's perfect...

  9. All the power of reflection in this candle and the quote.
    Voltaire said something like : Happiness is the only thing you can offer without having it, and, as a result, you can win it by return.
    Sharing is the key !
    A great post, Jilly; I love it.
