Said by Isabella Swan, Twilight (2007).
The twilight is sad and cloudy, The wind blows wild and free, And like the wings of sear-birds Hash the white caps of the sea.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Now air is hushed, save where the weak-eyed bat With short shrill shriek flits by on leathern wing, Or where the beetle winds His small but sullen horn, As oft he rises midst the twilight path, Against the pilgrim borne in heedless hum.william collins
The moral test of government is how it treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the aged; and those in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.hubert humphrey
This is the forest primeval. The murmuring pines and the hemlocks, Bearded with moss, and in garments green, indistinct in the twilight, Stand like Druids of eld, with voices sad and prophetic, Stand like harpers hoar, with beards that rest on their bosoms.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
"The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs, and explosions, and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices, to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy; and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own for the children, and the children yet unborn. And the pity of it is, that these things cannot be confined to the twilight Zone.”rod serling
Miss Joan Hunter Dunn, Miss Joan Hunter Dunn, I can hear from the car-park the dance has begun. Oh! full Surrey twilight! importunate band! Oh! strongly adorable tennis-girl's hand!Maurice Bowra
Let those whose Hearts and Hands are strongTell eager Tales of mighty Deeds;Enough if my sequestered songTo hush'd and twilight Gardens leads!Clear Waters, drawn from secret WellsPerchance may fevered Lips assuage;The Tales an elder Pilgrim tellsTo such as go on Pilgrimage.Such the soft Path my Words would trace,Thus with the moving Waters move;So leave, across the Ocean's Face,A glimmering Stair to Hope and Love.a. c. benson
Don't turn your back upon your doctrinal doubts and difficulties. Go up to them and examine them. Perhaps the ghastly object which looks to you in the twilight like a sheeted ghost may prove to be no more than a table-cloth hanging upon a hedge.andrew kennedy hutchison boyd
He ["the male"] is trapped in a twilight zone halfway between humans and apes, and is far worse off than apes, because he is, first of all, capable of a large array of negative feelings that the apes aren't - hate, jealousy, contempt, disgust, guilt, shame, disgrace, doubt - and, secondly, he is aware of what he is and isn't.valerie solanas
The things that have been and shall be no more,The things that are, and that hereafter shall be,The things that might have been, and yet were not,The fading twilight of joys departed.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
She was a Phantom of delight When first she gleamed upon my sight; A lovely Apparition, sent To be a moment's ornament; Her eyes as stars of twilight fair, Like twilights too her dusky hair, But all things else about her drawn From May-time and the cheerful dawn.william wordsworth
And others came... Desires and Adorations, Winged Persuasions and veiled Destinies, Splendours, and GloOms, and glimmering Incarnations Of hopes and fears, and twilight Phantasies; And Sorrow, with her family of Sighs, And Pleasure, blind with tears, led by the gleam Of her own dying smile instead of eyes, Came in slow pomp; the moving pomp might seem Like pageantry of mist on an autumnal stream.Percy Bysshe Shelley
I heard them cry the peacocks. Was it a cry against the twilight Or against the leaves themselves Turning in the wind , Turning as the flames Turned in the fire , Turning as the tails of the peacocks Turned in the loud fire, Loud as the hemlocks Full of the cry of the peacocks? Or was it a cry against the hemlocks?wallace stevens
The past is but the beginning of a beginning, and all that is or has been is but the twilight of the dawn.
The tide rises, the tide falls, The twilight darkens, the curlew calls; * * * * * * The little waves, with their soft, white hands, Efface the footprints in the sands, And the tide rises, the tide falls.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
'Twas twilight, and the sunless day went down Over the waste of waters, like a veil, Which, if withdrawn, would but disclose the frown Of one whose hate is mask'd but to assail.lord byron
Beauteous Night lay dead Under the pall of twilight, and the love-star sickened and shrank.george eliot
Then the nun-like twilight came, violet-vestured and still, And the night's first star outshone afar on the eve of Bunker Hill.
Her eyes as stars of twilight fair, Like twilight's too her dusky hair.william wordsworth
But for you, it shall be forever Spring, And only you shall be forever fearless, And only you shall have white, straight, tireless limbs, And only you, where the water lily swims, Shall walk along pathways, thro' the willows Of your West. You who went West, And only you on silvery twilight pillows Shall take your rest In the soft, sweet glooms Of twilight rooms.
To archèd walks of twilight groves, And shadows brown that Sylvan loves, Of pine.john milton
We must appreciate the dignity of life in all its seasons, even the path of the elderly in the twilight of their years, to work toward the day when every child, born and unborn, is welcomed to life and protected by law.george w. bush
I would say the games that we're working on now, like the new Zelda: twilight Princess, have hardcore content. And if you look at the Revolution's controllers, there's a nunchaku-style controller expansion that's really well suited to first-person shooters.shigeru miyamoto
In Faerie, there is only one time:;: Now . twilight.
