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
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
There came to the beach a poor Exile of Erin, The dew on his thin robe was heavy and chill; For his country he sigh'd, when at twilight repairing, To wander alone by the wind-beaten hill. Thomas Campbell, The Exile of Erin .

The bond between a man and his profession is similar to that which ties him to his country; it is just as complex, often ambivalent, and in general it is understood completely only when it is broken: by Exile or emigration in the case of one’s country, by retirement in the case of a trade or profession.Primo Levi
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

The generation of Isaiah did not require the detailed description; his account, "I saw the Lord," &c., sufficed. The generation of the Babylonian Exile wanted to learn all the details. ...Isaiah was so familiar with it that he did not consider it necessary to communicate it to others as a new thing, especially as it was well known to the intelligent.maimonides
What captivity has been to the Jews, Exile has been to the Irish. For us, the romance of our native land begins only after we have left home; it is really only with other people that we become Irishmen.
Wherever the hero may wander, whatever he may do, he is ever in the presence of his own essence for he has the perfected eye to see. There is no separateness.

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.
There are those who regard this history of past strife and Exile as better forgotten. But, to use the phrase of Yeats , let us not casually reduce "that great past to a trouble of fools." For we need not feel the bitterness of the past to discover its meaning for the present and the future.
What Exile from himself can flee? To zones, though more and more remote, Still, still pursues, where'er I be, The blight of life the demon Thought.lord byron
