Quotes About Solitude And Sadness

"The observations and encounters of a devotee of solitude and silence are at once less distinct and more penetrating than those of the sociable man; his thoughts are weightier, stranger, and never without a tinge of sadness. Images and perceptions which might otherwise be easily dispelled by a glance, a laugh, an exchange of comments, concern him unduly, they sink into mute depths, take on significance, become experiences, adventures, emotions." - Author: Thomas Mann

Quotes About Donkey

"People whove never read fairy tales, the professor said, have a harder time coping in life than the people who have. They dont have access to all the lessons that can be learned from the journeys through the dark woods and the kindness of strangers treated decently, the knowledge that can be gained from the company and example of Donkeyskins and cats wearing boots and steadfast tin soldiers. Im not talking about in-your-face lessons, but more subtle ones. The kind that seep up from your sub¬conscious and give you moral and humane structures for your life. That teach you how to prevail, and trust. And maybe even love." - Author: Charles de Lint

Quotes About Carrying On Tradition

"Jason grins. "Id never miss your birthday. Remember last year?""Ugh! I thought Id never thaw out after we went skiing in a blizzard.

That time.""I still cant believe we went snow-boarding on East Pillar Mountain Loop. Thats a tough trail, and then you broke your arm slipping in the parking lot on the way to the truck." My muscles were exhausted, and carrying my board on my shoulder, I wasnt watching where I was going. I didnt see the patch of ice. "Remember when you took me spelunking?""I had no idea that bear was in there.""I cant remember ever being that scared.""But it was fun! Come on. We cant break tradition." - Author: Rita Webb

Quotes About Feeling Blown Off

Doves clatter up out of a bare tree and turn at the same instant, transforming themselves from steel to silver in the snow-blown light. I know at that moment that the drug is working. Everything before me has become suddenly, radiantly itself. How could Carlton have known this was about to happen? "Oh," I whisper. His hand settles on my shoulder."Stay loose, Frisco," he says. "Theres not a thing in this pretty world to be afraid of. Im here."I am not afraid. I am astonished. I had not realized until this moment how real everything is. A twig lies on the marble at my feet, bearing a cluster of hard brown berries. The broken-off end is raw, white, fleshly. Trees are alive."Im here," Carlton says again, and he is." - Author: Michael Cunningham

"Dear God, what she saw in that look! How he had hidden these many years behind the guise of a simple schoolmaster, she didnt know.
