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
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.
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
So I lie, whose fount of pride, Dear distress, and joy allied,
Is my somber flesh and skin,
With the Dark blood dammed within.
Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the Dark place where it leads.erica jong
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
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
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
The softest breeze to fairest flowers gives birth: Think not that Prudence dwells in Dark abodes, She scans the future with the eye of gods.william wordsworth
Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths, Enwrought with golden and silver light, The blue and the dim and the Dark cloths Of night and light and the half-light, I would spread the cloths under your feet: But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.William Butler Yeats
To the earth I gave the earthly tribute. Of love, hopes, good and evil; I am ready to begin another life, I am silent and wait: the time has come; I shall leave no brother in this world; And Dark and cold embrace my tired soul; Like a premature fruit, deprived of sap, It withered in the storms of fate under the burning sun of existence.mikhail lermontov
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.
I look before me at my lighted candles, I don’t want to turn around and see with horror How quickly the Dark line is lengthening, How quickly the candles multiply that have been put out.constantine p. cavafy
The great hulking eminence of the stone-age mound stood out as an ominous Dark shadow.stephen r. lawhead
Keep the home fires burning, while your hearts are yearning, Tho' your lads are far away they dream of home. There's a silver lining through the Dark cloud shining; Turn the Dark cloud inside out till the boys come home.Lena Guilbert Ford
