If this can be termed the century of the common man, then soccer, of all sports, is surely his game? In a world haunted by thehydrogenand napalm bomb, thefootball field is a place where sanity and hope are still left unmolested.
The inventor...looks upon the world and is not contented with things as they are. He wants to improve whatever he sees, he wants to benefit the world; he is Haunted by an idea. The spirit of invention possesses him, seeking materialization.alexander graham bell

Oh, we don't go near any place with spooky, Haunted, forbidden or creepy in the name.Shaggy
Most of us stand poised at the edge of brilliance, Haunted by the knowledge of our proximity, yet still demonstrably on the wrong side of the line, our dealings with reality undermined by a range of minor yet critical psychological flaws (a little too much optimism, an unprocessed rebelliousness, a fatal impatience or sentimentality). We are like an exquisite high-speed aircraft which for lack of a tiny part is left stranded beside the runway, rendered slower than a tractor or bicycle.Alain de Botton
Shelley, whose talents would otherwise have made him eligible, was an outcast from the first ... They always knew where to draw the line and they drew it, emphatically, at Shelley. I was informed that Byron could be forgiven because, though he had sinned, he had been led into sin by the unfortunate circumstances of his youth, and had always been Haunted by remorse, but that for Shelley's moral character there was nothing to be said since he acted on principle and therefore he could not be worth reading.Percy Bysshe Shelley
Poetry is the supreme fiction , madame. Take the moral law and make a nave of it And from the nave build Haunted heaven . Thus, The conscience is converted into palms, Like windy citherns hankering for hymns.wallace stevens

The Spanish voyager, as his caravel ploughed the adjacent seas, might give full scope to his imagination, and dream that beyond the long, low margin of forest which bounded his horizon lay hid a rich harvest for some future conqueror; perhaps a second Mexico with its royal palace and sacred pyramids, or another Cuzco with its temple of the Sun, encircled with a frieze of gold. Haunted by such visions, the ocean chivalry of Spain could not long stand idle.francis parkman
The dragon-green, the luminous, the dark, the serpent- Haunted sea.james elroy flecker
Such sights as youthful poets dream, on summer eves by Haunted stream.john milton
I had no money to buy books, so between classes and work, I Haunted the library. I even tutored in French with a sliding scale of payment: twenty dollars for an A, fifteen for a B, ten for a C, five for a D.hubert humphrey
This planet is Haunted by us; the other occupants just evade boredom by filling our skies and seas with monsters.
I have always been Haunted by the feeling that the painter has much to gain from making use of the forces that tend to work against his actionjean dubuffet
There was an awful rainbow once in heaven: We know her woof, her texture; she is given In the dull catalogue of common things. Philosophy will clip an Angel’s wings, Conquer all mysteries by rule and line, Empty the Haunted air, and gnomed mine Unweave a rainbow, as it erewhile made The tender-person’d Lamia melt into a shade.john keats
From Haunted spring and dale Edged with poplar pale The parting genius is with sighing sent.john milton
And pomp, and feast, and revelry, With mask, and antique pageantry, Such sights as youthful poets dream On summer eves by Haunted stream. Then to the well-trod stage anon, If Jonson's learned sock be on, Or sweetest Shakespeare, Fancy's child, Warble his native wood-notes wild, And ever, against eating cares, Lap me in soft Lydian airs, Married to immortal verse Such as the meeting soul may pierce, In notes with many a winding bout Of linked sweetness long drawn out.john milton

Let us sit upon the ground and tell sad stories of the death of kings. How some have been depos'd, some slain in war, some Haunted by the ghosts they have depos'd. Some poison'd by their wives, some sleeping kill'd, all murder'd.william shakespeare
Psychoanalysis is often about turning our ghosts into ancestors, even for patients who have not lost loved ones to death. We are often Haunted by important relationships from the past that influence us unconsciously in the present. As we work them through, they go from haunting us to becoming simply part of our history. (243)”
We are too much Haunted by ourselves; we project the central shadow of ourselves on every thing around us. And then comes in the gospel to rescue us from this selfishness. Redemption is this to forget self in God.frederick william robertson
