It is often used at the beginning of an oral narrative as a way of reminding the listeners that the world is full of things that may not seem to be connected but actually are; that no event occurs in isolation; that you can miss a lot by sticking to the point; and that the storyteller is likely to be rather long-winded."
Author: Anne Fadiman

6. "Sherlock Holmes prese il suo flacone dall'angolo della mensola del caminetto e la sua siringa ipodermica da un elegante astuccio di marocchino. Con le sue dita lunghe e nervose infilò l'ago sottile e arrotolò la manica sinistra della camicia. Per un po', osservò pensoso l'avambraccio muscoloso e il polso, costellati di innumerevoli segni di punture. Alla fine, infilò con gesto deciso la siringa, premette il pistone e si abbandonò nella poltrona di velluto con un lungo sospiro di soddisfazione.[...]«Cos'è oggi», gli chiesi, «morfina o cocaina?»[...]«Cocaina», rispose, «soluzione al sette per cento. Vuole provarla?»"
Author: Arthur Conan Doyle

"I feel enormously blessed to be a successful black woman writer in this culture, but I have found my small fame, such as it is, to be very isolating... because I think that especially for black women, the more we rise from the bottom, the more we move and journey, the more we are the targets of the most brutal and vicious attacks."

9. "He does not ask much of us, merely a thought of Him from time to time, a little act of adoration, sometimes to ask for His grace, sometimes to offer Him your sufferings, at other times to thank Him for the graces, past and present, He has bestowed on you, in the midst of your troubles to take solace in Him as often as you can. Lift up your heart to Him during your meals and in company; the least little remembrance will always be the most pleasing to Him. One need not cry out very loudly; He is nearer to us than we think."
Author: Brother Lawrence
10. "The Cosmos extends, for all practical purposes, forever. After a brief sedentary hiatus, we are resuming our ancient nomadic way of life. Our remote descendants, safely arrayed on many worlds throughout the Solar System and beyond, will be unified by their common heritage, by their regard for their home planet, and by the knowledge that, whatever other life may be, the only humans in all the Universe come from Earth. They will gaze up and strain to find the blue dot in their skies. They will love it no less for its obscurity and fragility. They will marvel at how vulnerable the repository of all our potential once was, how perilous our infancy, how humble our beginnings, how many rivers we had to cross before we found our way."
Author: Carl Sagan
11. "Was I gleeful, settled, content, during the hours I passed in yonder bare, humble schoolroom this morning and afternoon? Not to decieve myself, I must reply -- No: I felt desolate to a degree. I felt -- yes, idiot that I am -- I felt degraded. I doubted I had taken a step which sank instead of raising me in the scale of social existence. I was weakly dismayed at the ignorance, the poverty, the coarseness of all I heard and saw around me. But let me not hate and despise myself too much for these feelings; I know them to be wrong -- that is a great step gained. I shall strive to overcome them."
Author: Charlotte Brontë
12. "I had become too accustomed to the pseudo-Left new style, whereby if your opponent thought he had identified your lowest possible motive, he was quite certain that he had isolated the only real one. This vulgar method, which is now the norm and the standard in much non-Left journalism as well, is designed to have the effect of making any noisy moron into a master analyst."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
13. "Music I heard with you was more than music, and bread I broke with you was more than bread. Now that I am without you, all is desolate; all that was once so beautiful is dead."
Author: Conrad Aiken
14. "Holmes non amava farsi toccare. Il contatto fisico umano era per lui qualcosa di molto vicino alla migliore definizione dell'aggettivo ripugnante. Ma anche di rappresentazione perfetta delle debolezze umane. O ancora di estrema inutilità. Holmes non amava nemmeno le eccezioni. Ne tollerava una sola. Me."
Author: Cristina Bruni
15. "A cloud, hitherto unseen, came upon the moon, and hovered an instant like a dark hand before a face.The illusion went with it, and the lights in the windows were extinguished. I looked upon a desolate shell, soulless at last, unhaunted, with no whisper of the past about its staring walls. The house was a sepulchre, our fear and suffering lay buried in the ruins. There would be no resurrection. When I thought of Manderley in my waking hours I would not be bitter. I should think of it as it might have been, could I have lived there without fear. I should remember the rose-garden in summer, and the birds that sang at dawn.Tea under the chestnut tree, and the murmur of the sea coming up to us from the lawns below.I would think of the blown lilac, and the Happy Valley. These things were permanent, they could not be dissolved.They were memories that cannot hurt."
Author: Daphne Du Maurier
16. "Qui peut se vanter d'avoir assez d'expérience ? Celui qui s'est flatté d'en être le mieux pourvu, n'a-t-il jamais été dupe ? Et puis, y a-t-il un homme capable d'apprécier juste les circonstances où il se trouve ? Le calcul qui se fait dans nos têtes, etcelui qui est arrêté sur le registre d'en haut, sont deux calculs bien différents. Est-ce nous qui menons le destin, ou bien est-ce le destin quinous mène ? Combien de projets sagementconcertés ont manqué, et combien manqueront ! Combien de projets insensés ont réussi, et combien réussiront ! C'est ce que mon capitaine me répétait, après la prise de Berg-op-Zoom et celle du Port-Mahon ; et il ajoutait que laprudence ne nous assurait point un bon succès, mais qu'elle nous consolait et nous excusait d'un mauvais"
Author: Denis Diderot
17. "Valószínuleg foglalkoztat a kérdés, hogy mi lesz veled. Erre könnyu a válaszolni. Ugyanaz történik majd veled, mint minden egyes emberrel, aki valaha élt. Meg fogsz halni. Mind meghalunk. Ez van. Hogy mi történik velünk, amikor meghalunk? Nos, ebben sincs konszenzus. De minden jel arra utal, hogy semmi sem történik. Egyszeruen csak meghalunk, az agyunk leáll, és aztán már nem leszünk itt, hogy mindenféle keresztkérdéseket tegyünk fel. Ja, hogy ezzel kapcsolatban is hallottál mindenféle sztorit? hogy van egy „mennyország" nevu csodálatos hely, ahol nincs több fájdalom és halál, és örökké élhetünk az állandó boldogság állapotában? Ez is teljes kamu. Mint az az Isten-sztori. Nincs bizonyíték a mennyország létezésére, és soha nem is volt. Ezt is csak kitaláltuk. Ezt hívják vágybeteljesíto gondolkodásnak. Mostantól tehát úgy kell élned az életedet, hogy tudod: egy nap meghalsz, és örökre eltunsz. Bocs."
Author: Ernest Cline
18. "Gli uomini dell'Isola dei Potenti scesero a terra. Tirarono in secca le loro navi presso la foce del fiume Boyne, il dolce corso d'acqua che prende nome da un'antica Dea, madre di Angus degli Uccelli. Il fiume scorre a poca distanza da Tara dei Re, e passa vicino a Brug na Boinne, la splendida tomba di pietra che potrebbe essere più antica della più antica piramide d'Egitto. Una cosa è certa: non per Matholuch, né per altri re suoi pari, venne costruita quella tomba."
Author: Evangeline Walton
19. "That is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you're not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
20. "Now, who is inside my solar?''Lord Littlefinger.' Podrick managed a quick look at his face, then hastily dropped his eyes. 'I meant, Lord Petyr. Lord Baelish. The master of coin.''You make him sound a crowd."
Author: George R.R. Martin
21. "L'image la plus simple de la vie organique unie à la rotation est la marée. Du mouvement de la mer, coït uniforme de la terre avec la lune, procède le coït polymorphe et organique de la terre et du soleil.Mais la première forme de l'amour solaire est un nuage qui s'élève au-dessus de l'élément liquide. Le nuage érotique devient parfois orage et reombe vers la terre sous forme de pluie pendant que la foudre défonce les couches de l'atmosphère. La pluie se redresse aussitôt sous forme de plante immobile.La vie animale est entièrement issue du mouvement des mers et, à l'intérieur des corps, la vie continue à sortir de l'eau salée. La mer a jouée ainsi le rôle de l'organe femelle qui devient liquide sous l'excitation.La mer se branle continuellement.Les éléments solides contenus et brassés par l'eau animée d'un mouvemnet érotique en jaillissent sous forme de poissons volants."
Author: Georges Bataille
22. "I like to isolate myself when I work because I end up losing my voice by doing interviews all day."
Author: Grace Jones
23. "I could not help feeling that they were evil things-- mountains of madness whose farther slopes looked out over some accursed ultimate abyss. That seething , half-luminous cloud-background held ineffable suggestions of a vague, ethereal beyondness far more than terrestrially spatial; and gave appalling reminders of the utter remoteness, separateness, desolation, and aeon-long death of this untrodden and unfathomed austral world."
Author: H.P. Lovecraft
24. "The full Christian experience, however, is not an individual experience which may be isolated from all else; it is, unconditionally, an experience within the context of the Church. It is 'a personal history which is imbedded in the greater history of the Church - a spiritual becoming which is incarnate and is lived within the Church's own process of becoming. It is the effort to develop what has been given, to discover what is hidden, the effort to attain to oneself by attaining, though the Church and within her, to the mystery of Christ, the Saviour'."
Author: Hans Urs Von Balthasar
25. "Der rechtsstaatliche Katalog ist schön und gut, aber nur, solange er die Bekämpfung des Terrorismus nicht behindert."
Author: Heribert Prantl
26. "I know I experience great consolation when my mouth is between a woman's legs. I think it must be because I'm drinking in her happiness."
Author: Jonathan Ames
27. "Las palabras son símbolos que postulan una memoria compartida. La que ahora quiero historiar es mía solamente; quienes la compartieron han muerto. Los místicos invocan una rosa, un beso, un pájaro que es todos los pájaros, un sol que es todas las estrellas y el sol, un cántaro de vino, un jardín o el acto sexual. De esas metáforas ninguna me sirve para esa larga noche de júbilo, que nos dejó, cansados y felices, en los linderos de la aurora. Casi no hablamos, mientras las ruedas y los cascos retumbaban sobre las piedras. (...)"
Author: Jorge Luis Borges
28. "Tres suertes puede correr un libro de versos: puede ser adjudicado al olvido, puedo no dejar una sola línea pero sí una imagen total del hombre que lo hizo, puede legar a las antologías unos pocos poemas..."
Author: Jorge Luis Borges
29. "Ibn Mas'ud said, "When 'Umar died nine-tenth of all knowledge vanished with him." The people were shocked and said, "How can this be when among us now are still many of the great companions?" Ibn Mas'ud replied,"I am not speaking of the knowledge of fiqh and the science of judgements, I'm speaking about the knowledge of Allah." This struggle of isolation, hunger, sleeplessness, weeping, fear and endless service to men was for this end. The journey is only for knowledge of Allah and the whole of it lies in detachment from everything that passes away. First from what is displeasing to Allah, then from one's self-illusion and desires, and then from all men and all otherness until there is only isolation and extreme nearness to Allah."
Author: Khalid Muhammad Khalid
30. "The great art of films does not consist of descriptive movement of face and body but in the movements of thought and soul transmitted in a kind of intense isolation."
Author: Louise Brooks
31. "We can surely no longer pretend that our children are growing up into a peaceful, secure, and civilized world. We've come to the point where it's irresponsible to try to protect them from the irrational world they will have to live in when they grow up. The children themselves haven't yet isolated themselves by selfishness and indifference; they do not fall easily into the error of despair; they are considerably braver than most grownups. Our responsibility to them is not to pretend that if we don't look, evil will go away, but to give them weapons against it."
Author: Madeleine L'Engle
32. "If you want to get to the top, there's always the risk that it will isolate you from other people."
Author: Magnus Carlsen

"Si cuarenta mil niños sucumben diariamenteen el purgatorio del hambre y de la sedsi la tortura de los pobres cuerposenvilece una a una a las almasy si el poder se ufana de sus cuarentenaso si los pobres de solemnidadson cada vez menos solemnes y más pobresya es bastante graveque un solo hombreo una sola mujercontemplen distraídos el horizonte neutropero en cambio es atrozsencillamente atrozsi es la humanidad la que se encoge de hombros."
Author: Mario Benedetti
34. "Para mí sola nació don Quijote y yo para él; él supo obrar y yo escribir."
Author: Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
35. "You are my peace, my solace, my salvation."
Author: Molière
36. "Nothing is an accident: it's always someone's fault; perhaps-but no one teaches us how to live with our mistakes. Everyone is isolated, alone with his or her anguish and guilt, and too penetrating a question can mean people are not able to face one another the next day."
Author: Nadeem Aslam
37. "Si no podéis disfrutar leyendo un libro repetidas veces, de nada sirve leerlo ni una sola vez."
Author: Oscar Wilde
38. "Fear and Bigotry are bred fom isolation and ignorance.-Shekinah"
Author: P.C. Cast
39. "You pile of stones, you waste, you desolation, I'll stuff you with misery till it comes out of your eyes. I'll change your heart into green grass, and all you love into a sheep. I'll turn you into a bad poet with dreams."
Author: Peter S. Beagle
40. "How we rolled up the carpet so we could dance, and the days were bright red, and every time we kissed there was anotherappleto slice into pieces.Look at the light through the windowpane. That means it's noon,that meanswe're inconsolable.Tell me how all this, and love too, will ruin us.These our bodies, possessed by light.Tell me we'll never get used to it."
Author: Richard Siken
41. "Unprecedented financial pressures, and an ever-increasingly aggressive public culture, along with social, moral and spiritual fragmentation, are leading to lives being overwhelmed by stress, intolerable interior isolation and even quiet despair."
Author: Sean Brady
42. "No Human eye can isolate the unhappy coincidence of line and place which suggests evil in the face of a house, and yet somehow a maniac juxtaposition, a badly turned angle, some chance meeting of roof and sky, turned Hill House into a place of despair, more frightening because the face of Hill House seemed awake, with a watchfulness from the blank windows and a touch of glee in the eyebrow of a cornice."
Author: Shirley Jackson
43. "Thy's bleeding heart confides in the With one's thoughts and troubles Let the kiss thy's lips To ease thou's pain Thy am thou's comfort Lie thou's head on mine pillow Of soft consolation And let the drown Thou's sorrow Away"
Author: Solange Nicole
44. "The artist committing himself to his calling has volunteered for hell, whether he knows it or not. He will be dining for the duration on a diet of isolation, rejection, self-doubt, despair, ridicule, contempt, and humiliation."
Author: Steven Pressfield
45. "I have not read most of the big 19th — century novels that people consider "essential," nor most of the 20th-century ones for that matter. But this does not embarrass me. There are many films to see, many friends to visit, many walks to take, many playlists to assemble and many favorite books to reread. Life's too short for anxious score-keeping. Also, my grandmother is illiterate, and she's one of the best people I know. Reading is a deep personal consolation for me, but other things console, too."
Author: Teju Cole
46. "People in this world of superficial communication find themselves isolated and lonely and have difficult in talking about personal things that really matter to them."
Author: Theodore Zeldin
47. "Henceforth the crisis of urbanism is all the more concretely a social and political one, even though today no force born of traditional politics is any longer capable of dealing with it. Medico-sociological banalities on the 'pathology of housing projects,' the emotional isolation of people who must live in them, or the development of certain extreme reactions of rejection, chiefly among youth, simply betray the fact that modern capitalism, the bureaucratic society of consumption, is here and there beginning to shape its own setting. This society, with its new towns, is building the terrain that accurately represents it, combining the conditions most suitable for its proper functioning, while at the same time translating in space, in the clear language of organization of everyday life, its fundamental principle of alienation and constraint. It is likewise here that the new aspects of its crisis will be manifested with the greatest clarity."
Author: Tom McDonough
48. "Despite the depravity I see in Dauntless, though, I could not leave it. It isn't only because the thought of living factionless, in complete isolation, sounds like a fate worse than death. It is because, in the brief moments that I have loved it here, I saw a faction worth saving. Maybe we can become brave and honorable again."
Author: Veronica Roth
49. "Affondava come una lama nelle cose; e al tempo stesso ne rimaneva fuori, osservava. Aveva l'impressione costante, anche ora guardando i taxi, di essere lontana, lontanissima, in mare aperto, e sola. Sempre aveva l'impressione che vivere, anche un solo giorno, fosse molto, molto pericoloso"
Author: Virginia Woolf
50. "We mourn the blossoms of May because they are to whither; but we know that May is one day to have its revenge upon November, by the revolution of that solemn circle which never stops---which teaches us in our height of hope, ever to be sober, and in our depth of desolation, never to despair."
Author: William Peter Blatty

Wanderlust is not unheard of in our kind; it comes upon us now and then. When you can live forever, staying in one place can come to seem a dull prison after many, many years."
