Lighthouse Quotation

Slide Content

The PowerPoint slide presents a motivational quotation about lighthouses attributed to Anne Lamott, which reads: "Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shining." This metaphor suggests that sometimes it's important to stand firm and be an example or beacon, rather than actively seeking out those who might need help.

Graphical Look

  • The slide has a split composition with text on the left and a photographic image on the right.
  • The text is housed within a speech bubble that resembles a thought cloud, with a drop shadow giving it a slight 3D effect.
  • A large, stylized quotation mark graphic is placed between the text and the photo, reinforcing the slide's focus on the quotation.
  • The photo depicts a picturesque lighthouse at twilight, with a clear view of the pathway leading to it, and the light is illuminated.
  • The colors of the slide are harmonious, with cool blues prevalent throughout both text and image areas.
  • The font used for the quotation is a serif type, which adds a touch of formality and elegance.

The slide's overall look is clean and balanced, with a clear division between text and image. The peaceful nighttime scene adds a contemplative mood that complements the inspirational quotation.

Use Cases

  • To open or close a presentation with a powerful metaphorical statement that inspires reflection.
  • Within leadership or team-building seminars to illustrate the concept of leading by example or the importance of steadfastness.
  • As a thematic slide in a motivational talk, where the lighthouse serves as a symbol for guidance and finding one's way.
  • In educational settings, to prompt discussions about personal growth, self-reliance, or being a positive influence on others.
