Light off Small Medium Large

A LAMP, soaked with too much oil and flaring brightly, boasted
that it gave more light than the sun. Then a sudden puff of wind
arose, and the Lamp was immediately extinguished. Its owner lit
it again, and said: “Boast no more, but henceforth be content to
give thy light in silence. Know that not even the stars need to
be relit”
