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
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
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
In the primitive church were not prayers simple, unpremeditated, united; prayers of the well-taught apostle; prayers of the accomplished scholar; prayers of the rough but fervent peasant; prayers of the new and zealous convert; prayers which importuned and wrestled with an instant and irrepressible urgency; were they not an essential part of that religion, which holy fire had kindled; and which daily supplications Alone could fan?
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
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
You have to be taught to leave us Alone. Leave us Alone.stirling silliphant
The love of man and woman is as fire To warm, to light, but surely to consume And self-consuming die… But comrade-love is as a welding blast Of candid flame and ardent temperature: Glowing more fervent, it doth bind more fast; And melting both but makes the union sure. The dross Alone is burnt till at the last The steel, if cold, is one and strong and pure.james jeffrey roche
All Alone! Whether you like it or not, Alone is something you'll be quite a lot.dr. seuss
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 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
A wise man is never less Alone than when he is Alone.jonathan swift
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
When lovely woman stoops to follyand Paces about her room again, Alone, She smoothes her hair with automatic hand, And puts a record on the gramophone. See Goldsmith 361:47.
...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
I paint self-portraits because I am so often Alone, because I am the person I know best.frida kahlo
Smile, and the world smiles with you; cry, and you cry Alone.
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
Sappho is a great poet because she is a lesbian, which gives her erotic access to the Muse. Sappho and the homosexual-tending Emily Dickinson stand Alone above women poets, because poetry's mystical energies are ruled by a hierach requiring the sexual subordination of her petitioners. Women have achieved more as novelists than as poets because the social novel operates outside the ancient marriage of myth and eroticism.camille paglia
On the advent of Buddhism , Dharma was entirely neglected, and the path of Moksha Alone became predominant.
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."richard fuller
