An exile from home splendour dazzles in vain,Oh give me my lowly thatched cottage again;The birds singing gayly, that came at my call,Give me them, and that peace of mind dearer than all.

What after all, has maintained the human race on this old globe despite all the calamities of nature and all the tragic failings of mankind, if not faith in new possibilities, and courage to advocate them. Doubtless many times these new possibilities were declared by a man who, quite unconscious of courage, bore the "sense of being an Exile, a condemned criminal, a fugitive from mankind." Did every one so feel who, in order to travel on his own proper path had been obliged to leave the traditional highway?jane addams

What captivity was to the Jews, Exile has been to the Irish: America and American influence have educated them. Their first practical leader is an Irish-American.
The Jewish people have been in Exile for 2,000 years; they have lived in hundreds of countries, spoken hundreds of languages and still they kept their old language, Hebrew. They kept their Aramaic, later their Yiddish; they kept their books; they kept their faith.Isaac Bashevis Singer

There are four great events in history, the siege of Troy, the life and crucifixion of Christ , the Exile of Krishna in Brindaban and the colloquy on the field of Kurukshetra. The siege of Troy created Hellas, the Exile in Brindaban created devotional religion, (for before there was only meditation and worship), Christ from his cross humanized Europe, the colloquy at Kurukshetra will yet liberate humanity.sri aurobindo
[As a screenwriter] I have a sense of Exile from thought, a nostalgia of the quiet room and balanced mind. I am a writer, and there comes a time when that which I write has to belong to me, has to be written alone and in silence, with no one looking over my shoulder, no one telling me a better way to write it. It doesn't have to be great writing, it doesn't even have to be terribly good. It just has to be mine.Raymond Chandler

To how much lying, extravagance, hypocrisy and servilism does not the fear of ridicule lead? Human respect makes us cowards and slaves. It may deter from evil, but much oftener it drives to baseness. “We are too much afraid,” said Cato, “of death, Exile and poverty.”john lancaster spalding
I have known Exile and a wild passion Of longing changing to a cold ache. King, beggar and fool , I have been all by turns, Knowing the body’s sweetness, the mind ’s treason ; Taliesin still, I show you a new world , risen, Stubborn with beauty , out of the heart ’s need .r. s. thomas
Sitting with my gin or whisky afterwards I would often manage to get into conversation with some lonely man or other – usually an Exile like myself – and the talk would be about the world, air-routes and shipping-lines, drinking-places thousands of miles away. Then I felt happy, felt I had come home, because home to people like me is not a place but all places, all places except the one we happen to be in at the moment.
Whether the darken'd room to muse invite, Or whiten'd wall provoke the skew'r to write; In durance, Exile, Bedlam, or the Mint, Like Lee or Budgel I will rhyme and print.Alexander Pope
Take up the White Man's burden- Send forth the best ye breed Go bind your sons to Exile To serve your captives' need.
