Light, Both Noun and Verb

Grandchildren cause the lights that beam in a grandparents eyes 
Caleb certainly does light up my life.

Speaking of light...it can be used as a verb as well as a noun...

"If you really want to light the fuse of a liberal Democrat, 
compare Barack Obama's economic performance after 30 
months in office with that of Ronald Reagan. It's not at all 
flattering for Mr. Obama. The two presidents have a lot in
 common. Both inherited an American economy in collapse. 
And both applied daring, expensive remedies. Mr. Reagan 
passed the biggest tax cut ever, combined with an agenda
 of deregulation, monetary restraint and spending controls.
 Mr. Obama, of course, has given us a $1 trillion spending 
stimulus. By the end of the summer of Reagan's third year 
in office, the economy was soaring. The GDP growth rate 
was 5% and racing toward 7%, even 8% growth. In 1983 and
 '84 output was growing so fast the biggest worry was that
 the economy would 'overheat.' In the summer of 2011 we 
have an economy limping along at barely 1% growth and by
 some indications headed toward a 'double-dip' recession.
 By the end of Reagan's first term, it was Morning in 
America. Today there is gloomy talk of America in its 
twilight. My purpose here is not more Reagan idolatry, but 
to point out an incontrovertible truth: One program for
 recovery worked, and the other hasn't."
