Tomorrow's some kind of Stranger I'm not supposed to see.st. vincent
The aggressive Edwardian prosperity that lends so comfortable a background to Elgar's finales is now as strange to us as the England that produced Greensleeves and The Woodes so wilde. Stranger, in fact, and less sympathetic. In consequence much of Elgar's music, through no fault of its own, has for the present generation an almost intolerable air of smugness, self-assurance and autocratic benevolence.edward elgar
Nihilists are not kind; They believe in nothing. The Stranger is not kind, He drifts where the wind catches him. Nihilists are like a bellows Empty, yet full of hot air, The more they threaten, the more cowardly they seem; The Stranger also rambles and loses his train of thought But tells a purty good story.

You have a wonderful child. Then, when he's thirteen, gremlins carry him away and leave in his place a Stranger who gives you not a moment's peace. You have to hang in there, because two or three years later, the gremlins will return your child and he will be wonderful again.
I am a citizen of the world, known to all and to all a Stranger.
The techniques of opening conversation are universal. I knew long ago and rediscovered that the best way to attract attention, help, and conversation is to be lost. A man who seeing his mother starving to death on a path kicks her in the stomach to clear the way, will cheerfully devote several hours of his time giving wrong directions to a total Stranger who claims to be lost.john steinbeck
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a Stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.

"I seek the meaning of existence." said the Stranger. "You are of course, assuming." said the Master, "that existence has a meaning." "Doesn't it?" "When you experience existence as it is not as you think it is you will discover that your question has no meaning."anthony de mello
I have a terrible problem with procrastination... a friend told me, "Well, you should go to therapy." And I thought about it, but then I said, "Wait a minute. Why should I pay a Stranger to listen to me talk when I can get strangers to pay to listen to me talk?" And that's when I got the idea of touring.ellen degeneres

Anacharsis coming to Athens, knocked at Solon's door, and told him that he, being a Stranger, was come to be his guest, and contract a friendship with him; and Solon replying, "It is better to make friends at home," Anacharsis replied, "Then you that are at home make friendship with me."Plutarch

Of folly, vice, disease, men proud we see; And, (Stranger still,) of blockheads' flattery; Whose praise defames; as if a fool should mean, By spitting on your face, to make it clean.Edward Young

Without comprehension, the immigrant would forever remain shut a Stranger in America. Until America can release the heart as well as train the hand of the immigrant, he would forever remain driven back upon himself, corroded by the very richness of the unused gifts within his soul.
We die. Beware the Machine Mother. She is a Stranger to everything we cherish
The monkey sat on a pile of stone And he stared at the broken bone in his hand Strains of a Viennese quartet rang out across the land The monkey looked up at the stars And he thought to himself Memory is a Stranger History is for fools And he cleaned his hands in a pool of holy writing Turned his back on the garden and set out for the nearest town"
