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.
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
Ecology is a dirty seven-letter word to many people. They are like heavy sleepers refusing to be aroused. "Leave me Alone! It's not time to get up yet!"frank herbert
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

This is the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered in the White Housewith the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined Alone.
Art is a concrete and personal and rather childish thing after all — no matter what people do to graft it into science and make it sociological and psychological; it is no good at all unless it is let Alone to be itself — a game of make-believe, or re-production, very exciting and delightful to people who have an ear for it or an eye for it.willa cather
When illusions are over, when the distractions of sense, the vagaries of fancy, and the tumults of passion have dissolved even before the body is cold, which once they so thronged and agitated, the soul merges into intellect, intellect into conscience, conscience into the unbroken, awful solitude of its own personal accountability; and though the inhabitants of the universe were within the spirit's ken, this personal accountability is as strictly Alone and unshared, as if no being were throughout immensity but the spirit and its God.henry giles
Who breathes must suffer, and who thinks must mourn;And he Alone is bless'd who ne'er was born.Matthew Prior
It is quite true that you have had infinitely more influence on me intellectually than anyone, and for this Alone I love you.vita sackville-west
Down to Gehenna or up to the Throne, He travels the fastest who travels Alone.rudyard kipling
Freedom is neither a legal invention nor a philosophical conquest, the cherished possession of civilizations more valid than others because they Alone have been able to create or preserve it. It is the outcome of an objective relationship between the individual and the space he occupies, between the consumer and the resources at his disposal.claude lévi-strauss
I determined to spend the Remainder of my Days in privacy and Retirement with my Children, from whose Society Alone I cou'd expect Comfort.george mason
To suffer woes which Hope thinks infinite; To forgive wrongs darker than Death or Night; To defy Power, which seems Omnipotent; To love, and bear; to hope, till Hope creates From its own wreck the thing it contemplates; Neither to change nor falter nor repent; This, like thy glory, Titan! is to be Good, great and joyous, beautiful and free; This is Alone Life; Joy, Empire, and Victory!Percy Bysshe Shelley
I wrote a little song for you With a melody I'd borrowed put to words that didn't rhyme To repeat what you already knew; As the stones thrown at your window tapped in syncopation, You kept a distance out of fear you'd break, But what good's a single windchime, hanging quiet all Alone?aaron weiss
Truth Alone will endure, all the rest will be swept away before the tide of time. I must continue to bear testimony to truth even if I am forsaken by all. Mine may today be a voice in the wilderness, but it will be heard when all other voices are silenced, if it is the voice of Truth.Mahatma Gandhi
It is not good that the man should be Alone.
The image of Eternity the throne Of the Invisible; even from out thy slime The monsters of the deep are made; each zone Obeys thee; thou goest forth, dread, fathomless, Alone.lord byron
They're sharing a drink they call loneliness, but it's better than drinking Alone.
And where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a god; where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves; Where we had thought to travel outward, we will come to the center of our own existence; where we had thought to be Alone, we shall be with all the world .joseph campbell
That men may know that thou, whose name Alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.
