That you need a village, if only for the pleasure of leaving it. Your own village means that you're not Alone, that you know there's something of you in the people and the plants and the soil, that even when you are not there it waits to welcome you.cesare pavese
The private ownership of great art, its seclusion from the general view of men and women, let Alone from that of interested amateurs and scholars, is a curious business. The literal disappearance of a Turner or a Van Gogh into some Middle Eastern or Latin-American bank vault to be kept as investment and collateral, the sardonic decision of a Greek shipping tycoon to put an incomparable El Greco on his yacht, where it hangs at persistent risk — these are phenomena that verge on vandalism.George Steiner
She came to the village church, And sat by a pillar Alone; An angel watching an urn Wept over her, carved in stone.Tennyson
A boat at midnight sent Alone to drift upon the moonless sea, a lute, whose leading chord is gone, a wounded bird, that hath but one imperfect wing to soar upon, are like what I am, without thee.thomas moore
To die Alone, on rock under sun at the brink of the unknown, like a wolf, like a great bird, seems to me very good fortune indeed.edward abbey
The disciples seem Alone; but up yonder, in some hidden cleft of the hills, their Master looks down on all the weltering storm, and lifts His voice in prayer. Then when the need is sorest, and the hope least, He comes across the waves, making their surges His pavement, and using all opposition as the means of His approach; and His presence brings calmness; and immediately they are at the land.alexander maclaren
You have to be taught to leave us Alone. Leave us Alone.stirling silliphant
No doubt, God Alone has become all these objects, animate and inanimate, but in the relative world all beings act and suffer according to their past Karma and innate tendencies.sarada devi
I am the only person still alive of that rescuing group but I want everyone to know that, while I was coordinating our efforts, we were about twenty to twenty five people. I did not do it Alone.irena sendler
"The same church must, in my opinion, also respect that the one whose name is absent from the same declaration out of embarrassment, although he and he Alone led Muslims to pray to this one God, so that once again through him, Muhammad, the prophet, this God 'has spoken to mankind'."hans küng
Laws Alone cannot secure freedom of expression; in order that every man may present his views without penalty, there must be a spirit of tolerance in the entire population.Albert Einstein
...the place [Dogtown, in Gloucester, Massachusetts] is forsaken and majestically lovely as if nature had at last formed one spot where she can live for herself Alone....[It] looked like a cross between Easter Island and Stonehenge – essentially druidic in it appearance – it gives the feeling that an ancient race might turn up at any moment and renew an ageless rite there.marsden hartley
You can get help from teachers, but you are going to have to learn a lot by yourself, sitting Alone in a room.dr. seuss
I'm not unmindful of a man's seeming need for faith; I'm for anything that gets you through the night, be it prayer, tranquilizers, or a bottle of Jack Daniel's. But to me religion is a deeply personal thing in which man and God go it Alone together, without the witch doctor in the middle.frank sinatra
Shaw does not merely decorate a proposition, but makes his way from point to point through new and difficult territory. This explains why Shaw must either be taken whole or left Alone. He must be disassembled and put together again with nothing left out, under pain of incomprehension; for his politics, his art, and his religion to say nothing of the shape of his sentences are unique expressions of this enormously enlarged and yet concentrated consciousness.jacques barzun
There was a time in this fair land when the railroad did not run And the wild majestic mountains stood Alone against the sun Long before the white man and long before the wheel When the green dark forest was too silent to be real... Oh! The song of the future has been sung All the battles have been won On the mountain tops we stand All the world at our command We have opened up the soil with our teardrops and our toilgordon lightfoot
A wise man is never less Alone than when he is Alone.jonathan swift
No bird flies near, no tiger creeps; Alone the whirlwind, wild and black, assails the tree of death and sweeps away with death upon its back.
Winds, storms, tempests, thunders, lightnings, raging flames, dissolving elements, the archangel's trump smiting the silence of the tomb, the universal air blazing with disastrous splendors, "the tribes of the earth mourning and beating their breasts," the wicked calling on rocks and hills to fall upon them and cover them, the shouts of the saved, the howlings of the damned all, all will then utter one voice, all will pierce our very souls with their tones; all will repeat these words, "God Alone is great, and God's salvation Alone deserved the cares, toils, sacrifices of an immortal spirit."
As we look upon that agony and those tearful prayers, let us not only look with thankfulness; but lot that kneeling Saviour teach us that in prayer Alone can we be forearmed against our lesser sorrows; that strength to bear flows into the heart that is opened in supplication; and that a sorrow which we are made able to endure is more truly cohijuered than a sorrow which we avoid.alexander maclaren
They're sharing a drink they call loneliness, but it's better than drinking Alone.
Poets Alone are sure of immortality; they are the truest diviners of nature.Lytton
