Shaemus OSheel Quotes

"They went forth to battle, but they always fell; Their eyes were fixed above the sullen shields; Nobly they fought and bravely, but not well, And sank heart-wounded by a subtle spell. They knew not fear that to the foeman yields, They were not weak, as one who vainly wields A futile weapon; yet the sad scrolls tell How on the hard-fought field they always fell. It was a secret music that they heard, A sad sweet plea for pity and for peace; And that which pierced the heart was but a word, Though the white breast was red-lipped where the sword Pressed a fierce cruel kiss, to put surcease On its hot thirst, but drank a hot increase. Ah, they by some strange troubling doubt were stirred, And died for hearing what no foeman heard."

Quotes About Conventions

"Touch. It is touch that is the deadliest enemy of chastity, loyalty, monogamy, gentility with its codes and conventions and restraints. By touch we are betrayed and betray others ... an accidental brushing of shoulders or touching of hands ... hands laid on shoulders in a gesture of comfort that lies like a thief, that takes, not gives, that wants, not offers, that awakes, not pacifies. When one flesh is waiting, there is electricity in the merest contact." - Author: Wallace Stegner

Quotes About The Inner Voice

"The act of consciousness is central; otherwise we are overrun by the complexes. The hero in each of us is required to answer the call of individuation. We must turn away from the cacaphony of the outerworld to hear the inner voice. When we can dare to live its promptings, then we achieve personhood. We may become strangers to those who thought they knew us, but at least we are no longer strangers to ourselves." - Author: James Hollis

Quotes About Bowing Out

"I kept going deeper and deeper into this world of repetition...The sad thing is, people dont want to believe that the person theyre in love with is out of his mind, drinking and using, so if you give them even half an excuse, theyre going to want to believe it. A girl with no prior exposure to the disease had to be blissfully unaware of the nefarious tricks of the dope fiend. Thats how I was able to get high all summer and autumn and pretend like it wasnt happening. I was saying, Im sick. I was deteriorating physically and emotionally. Jaime was tolerant, and it did speak well of her character, because she was not the type to abandon ship during a crisis. She didnt consider backing off or bowing out, she was just there, which I cant say about everybody. I dont know if I could say it even about myself." - Author: Anthony Kiedis

Quotes About Human Defects

"Such are the limitations of the human mind, and so thoroughly engrossing are the cares of common life, that only the few among men can discern through the glitter and dazzle of present prosperity the dark outlines of approaching disasters, even though they may have come up to our very gates, and are already within striking distance. The yawning seam and corroded bolt conceal their defects from the mariner until the storm calls all hands to the pumps. Prophets, indeed, were abundant before the war; but who cares for prophets while their predictions remain unfulfilled, and the calamities of which they tell are masked behind a blinding blaze of national prosperity?" - Author: Frederick Douglass

"Julian was good at being in love. But he was clever enough to know that what he really liked about being in love was the state of unconsummated tension...

But Julian was clever and observant enough to see that love was at its most intense before it was reciprocated." - Author: A.S. Byatt

Quotes About Someone Breaking You Tumblr

"Why are some of us, he wondered, unable to love success or power or great beauty? Because we feel unworthy of them, because we feel more at home with failure? He didnt believe that was the reason. Perhaps one wanted the right balance, just as Christ had, the legendary figure whom he would have liked to believe in. Come unto me all ye that travail are and heavy laden. Young as the girl was at that August picnic she was heavily laden with her timidity and shame. Perhaps he had merely wanted her to feel that she was loved by someone and so he began to love her himself. It wasnt pity, any more than it had been pity when he fell in love with Sarah pregnant by another man. He was there to right the balance. That was all." - Author: Graham Greene
