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
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
After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. On the first day of the week came Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet Dark, unto the sepulcher and saw the stone taken away from the sepulcher.
The leaves of memory seemed to make A mournful rustling in the Dark.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I did find Calypso but only once, far in the depths of the very wildest of Canadian Dark woods, near those high, cold, moss-covered swamps. ... I felt as if I were in the presence of superior beings who loved me and beckoned me to come. I sat down beside them and wept for joy.john muir
Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the Dark place where it leads.erica jong
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
Unlike plagues of the Dark ages or contemporary diseases we do not yet understand, the modern plague of overpopulation is soluble by means we have discovered and with resources we possess. What is lacking is not sufficient knowledge of the solution but universal consciousness of the gravity of the problem and education of the billions who are its victims.Martin Luther King Jr.
Hungry gentry now pillage, maraud as they please, In the barn Baptist greatly beasts' numbers decreased 'Sprinkling' heads of two oxen, two calves and one goat, While Razor his sabre sank deep in each throat. Awl, with his rapier, also ran up to their aid Sticking old boars and piglets below shoulder blade. Now death threatens the poultry – the geese, alert flocks, Which once saved Rome from Gauls in the Dark climbing rocks, Vainly cackle for succour; no Manlius will come...
Dark tree! still sad when other's grief is fled, The only constant mourner o'er the dead.lord byron
So I lie, whose fount of pride, Dear distress, and joy allied,
Is my somber flesh and skin,
With the Dark blood dammed within.
The Dark notes rose everywhere, so Dark, so sombre, they broke into a fountainlight as the rainbow sparkling and immaterial as invisible sources and echoes. The savannahs grew lonelyas the sea and broke again into a wave and forest. Tall trees with black marching boots and feet were clad in the spurs and sharp wings of a butterfly.Rolf Harris
O Swallow, Swallow, flying, flying South, Fly to her, and fall upon her gilded eaves, And tell her, tell her, what I tell to thee. O tell her, Swallow, thou that knowest each, That bright and fierce and fickle is the South, And Dark and true and tender is the North.Tennyson
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.William Butler Yeats
As she stumbled forward she cried out in her mind, which was as Dark, as shaken as the subterranean vault, “Forgive me. O my Masters, O unnamed ones, most ancient ones, forgive me, forgive me!” There was no answer. There had never been an answer.ursula k. le guin
It is good to be a cynic it is better to be a contented cat and it is best not to exist at all. Universal suicide is the most logical thing in the world we reject it only because of our primitive cowardice and childish fear of the Dark. If we were sensible we would seek death the same blissful blank which we enjoyed before we existed.h. p. lovecraft
"I can see in the Dark."
"That may be so, Mulla. But if it is true, why do you sometimes carry a candle at night?"
"To prevent other people from bumping into me."
If you herald some turn in our fortunes, if you bring us some measure of grace thanks, unicorn … And even if you do not, thanks for the brightness of your company at a Dark time .
