[David Set His Foot In A Gap Higher Up The Barbed Wire...When Would The Searchlight Come?They Could Not Be Certain Of Hitting Him In The Dark...and If They Did Not Hurry, He Would Be Over...Why Didn't They Hurry Up. Then He Stopped. He Would Run No More.When The Beam Of Light Caught Him,they Should See Him Walking Away Quite Calmly. Then They Would Not Enjoy It So Much; They Would Feel Cheated. The Thought Filled David With Triumph. I Am David]

Frank Kermode Quotes

"The books which seal off the long perspectives, which sever us from our losses, which represent the world of potency as a world of act, these are the books which, when the drug wears off, go on to the dump with the other empty bottles. Those that continue to interest us move through time to an end, an end we must sense even if we cannot know it; they live in change, until, which is never, as and is are one."

Quotes About Useless Things

"Hindsight, I think, is a useless tool. We, each of us, are at a place in our lives because of innumerable circumstances, and we, each of us, have a responsibility (if we do not like where we are) to move along lifes road, to find a better path if this one does not suit, or to walk happily along this one if it is indeed our lifes way. Changing even the bad things that have gone before would fundamentally change who we are, and whether or not that would be a good thing, I believe, it is impossible to predict. So I take my past experiences... and try to regret nothing. -Drizzt Dourden" - Author: R.A. Salvatore

Quotes About Notte

"«Voglio sapere perché sono così lenta» sussurrò la lumaca.[...] «Sei lenta perché hai sulle spalle un gran peso» spiegò il gufo. [...] «Io so volare ma non lo faccio. Una volta, tanto tempo prima che voi lumache veniste ad abitare nel prato, cerano molti più alberi di quelli che si vedono adesso. Cerano faggi e ippocastani, lecci, noci e querce. Tutti quegli alberi erano la mia casa, volavo di ramo in ramo, e il ricordo di quegli alberi che non ci sono più mi pesa così tanto che non posso volare. Tu sei una giovane lumaca e tutto ciò che hai visto, tutto ciò che hai provato, amaro e dolce, pioggia e sole, freddo e notte, è dentro di te, e pesa, ed essendo così piccola quel peso ti rende lenta.»" - Author: Luis Sepúlveda
