It very much depends on how these two phrases appear in a sentence.

For the saying "It is better to light a candle than to curse the dark", the Greek translation would be:

"Καλύτερα να ανάψεις ένα κερί παρά να καταριέσαι το σκοτάδι".

If you need them separately, in the imperative, then you would say:

Άναψε ένα κερί.

Καταράσου το σκοτάδι.
