Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
They give birth astride of a grave, the light gleams an instant, then it's night once more.Samuel Beckett
Lighten our darkness, we beseech thee,O Lord; and by thy great mercy defend us from all perils and dangers of this night.
How culpable was he That last night when he broke Our tribe's complicity? 'Now you're supposed to be An educated man,' I hear him say.'Puzzle me The right answer to that one.'
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
A liberal is a man or a woman or a child who looks forward to a better day, a more tranquil night, and a bright, infinite future.Leonard Bernstein
Now the last hookah has gone out, and the most restless of our servants has turned in. The roof of the cabin is strewed with bodies anything but fragrant, indeed, we cannot help pitying the melancholy fate of poor Morpheus, who is traditionally supposed to encircle such sleepers with his soft arms. Could you believe it possible that through such a night as this they choose to sleep under those wadded cotton coverlets, and dread not instantaneous asphixiation?sir richard francis burton
They (his Street scene paintings and drawings) originated in the years 1911-14, in one of the loneliest times of my life, during which an agonizing restlessness drove me out onto the streets day and night, which were filled with people and cars.ernst ludwig kirchner
I would lie in bed the night before a new school and decide who I was going to be. It would usually be based on someone I admired from the school before.josh lucas
"I have more dumb luck thank anybody I know. There must be a convey of guardian angels working twenty-four hours a day looking after me[...] Like the night I first got to Nashville that I laid down in the middle of Broadway, waiting to get run over. It didn't happen [...] I could swear they were keeping me alive just to see what I'd get next, I'm glad they feel that way. I'm trying to help them a little more this days."willie nelson
Yet now, as he roared across the night sky toward an unknown destiny , he found himself facing that bleak and ultimate question which so few men can answer to their satisfaction. What have I done with my life , he asked himself, that the world will be poorer if I leave it.arthur c. clarke
And to me it seems that you have fallen asleep upon a white rock, and in a parish of dreams , and have dreamt all this in a moment while it was night .anatole france
The night is my best friend. It calms the storm in my soul and it lets the guiding stars rise.joseph goebbels
Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light.dylan thomas
My Brother William was married to Mary Hutchinson…At a little after 8 o'clock I saw them go down the avenue towards the Church. William had parted from me upstairs. [ deleted : I gave him the wedding ring – with how deep a blessing! I took it from my forefinger where I had worn it the whole of the night before – he slipped it again onto my finger and blessed me fervently].dorothy wordsworth
Only a man harrowing clods In a slow silent walk With an old horse that stumbles and nods Half asleep as they stalk. Only thin smoke without flame From the heaps of couch-grass; Yet this will go onward the same Though Dynasties pass. Yonder a maid and her wight Come whispering by: War's annals will cloud into night Ere their story die.
But hers, which through the crystal tears gave light, Shone like the moon in water seen by night.william shakespeare
Some day this old Broadway shall climb to the skies, As a ribbon of cloud on a soul-wind shall rise, And we shall be lifted, rejoicing by night, Till we join with the planets who choir their delight. The signs in the streets and the signs in the skies Shall make a new Zodiac, guiding the wise, And Broadway make one with that marvelous stair That is climbed by the rainbow-clad spirits of prayer.
There's a long, long trail a-winding Into the land of my dreams, Where the nightingales are singing And a white moon beams; There's a long, long night of waiting Until my dreams all come true, Till the day when I'll be going down that Long, long trail with you.
By night, beloved, tie your heart to mine and let them both in dreams defeat the darkness.pablo neruda
Very well. I shall be here at eleven. Good night, Harry.Dorian gray
Wake! For the Sun, who scatter'd into flightThe Stars before him from the Field of night,Drives night along with them from Heav'n, and strikesThe Sultan's Turret with a Shaft of Light.omar khayyám
