The woods are lovely, Dark and deep, but I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep...robert frost
I like the night. Without the Dark, we’d never see the stars.Stephenie Meyer
The leaves of memory seemed to make A mournful rustling in the Dark.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
My people too were scared with eerie sounds, A footstep, a low throbbing in the walls, A noise of falling weights that never fell, Weird whispers, bells that rang without a hand, Door-handles turn'd when none was at the door, And bolted doors that open'd of themselves; And one betwixt the Dark and light had seen Her, bending by the cradle of her babe.Alfred Tennyson
Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the Dark place where it leads.erica jong
When Pearse summoned Cuchulain to his side, What stalked through the Post Office? What intellect, What calculation, number, measurement, replied? We Irish, born into that ancient sect But thrown upon this filthy modern tide And by its formless spawning fury wrecked, Climb to our proper Dark, that we may trace The lineaments of a plummet-measured face.
Wild, Dark times are rumbling toward us, and the prophet who wishes to write a new apocalypse will have to invent entirely new beasts, and beasts so terrible that the ancient animal symbols of St. John will seem like cooing doves and cupids in comparison.Heinrich Heine
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
As when the moon , refulgent lamp of night , O'er heaven 's clear azure spreads her sacred light , When not a breath disturbs the deep serene, And not a cloud o'ercasts the solemn scene; Around her throne the vivid planets roll, And stars unnumbered gild the glowing pole, O'er the Dark trees a yellower verdure shed, And tip with silver every mountain's head; Then shine the vales, the rocks in prospect rise, A flood of glory bursts from all the skies.
The salient mystery of Dark Ages sets the stage for mass amnesia. People living in vigorous cultures typically treasure those cultures and resist any threat to them. How and why can a people so totally discard a formerly vital culture that it becomes vitally lost.jane jacobs
The softest breeze to fairest flowers gives birth: Think not that Prudence dwells in Dark abodes, She scans the future with the eye of gods.william wordsworth
Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths, Enwrought with golden and silver light, The blue and the dim and the Dark cloths Of night and light and the half-light, I would spread the cloths under your feet: But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.William Butler Yeats
To the earth I gave the earthly tribute. Of love, hopes, good and evil; I am ready to begin another life, I am silent and wait: the time has come; I shall leave no brother in this world; And Dark and cold embrace my tired soul; Like a premature fruit, deprived of sap, It withered in the storms of fate under the burning sun of existence.mikhail lermontov
Wild, Dark times are rumbling toward us, and the prophet who wishes to write a new apocalypse will have to invent entirely new beasts, and beasts so terrible that the ancient animal symbols of St. John will seem like cooing doves and cupids in comparison.
I look before me at my lighted candles, I don’t want to turn around and see with horror How quickly the Dark line is lengthening, How quickly the candles multiply that have been put out.constantine p. cavafy
Full many a gem of purest ray serene, The Dark unfathomed caves of ocean bear: Full many a flower is born to blush unseen, And waste its sweetness on the desert air.thomas gray
The great hulking eminence of the stone-age mound stood out as an ominous Dark shadow.stephen r. lawhead
There are few situations in life that cannot be honourably settled, and without loss of time, either by suicide, a bag of gold, or by thrusting a despised antagonist over the edge of a precipice upon a Dark night.ernest bramah
