As a painter and a person, I believe in the overwhelming power of light. Whether it's the strong lighthouse beam cutting through thick fog or the warm glow of firelight emanating from a cottage window, light fills us with hope, warmth, and serenity. Light truly has the power to illuminate our lives and guide us home." -Thomas Kinkade

The lighthouse remains one of civilization's strongest symbols. Through its image of light and strength are projected some of our most cherished values: hope, direction, steadfastness, duty, reliability, comfort, and home. Artist and author Thomas Kinkade knows this powerful symbolism well, and he captures it through this collection of paintings and inspiring thoughts, Beacons of Light.

"...[Even] in times of darkness and doubt, there are always bastions of hope and beacons of light to guide us," Mr. Kinkade writes. "For some, the light is powerful friendship, for others, a strong family, and for many, the guiding light comes from an unshakeable faith in God." These are the thoughts and sentiments that flow forth from Beacons of Light. Thomas Kinkade's majestic and light-filled paintings combine with inspiring quotations from many of history's greatest thinkers for memorable impact in this heartwarming collection.

Louisa May Alcott, T. S. Eliot, James Allen, Emily Brontė, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Edith Wharton, and Thomas Kinkade himself are but a few of the many sources lending voice to Beacons of Light. Their effect-when matched with the artist's windswept seas, rugged architecture, and life-sustaining beams of light-is uplifting and inspirational.
