[It Was Getting Dark By The Time I Went Out, And Nobody Who Knows The Country Will Need To Be Told How Black Is The Darkness Of A November Night Under High Laurel Bushes And Yew-trees. I Walked Into The Heart Of The Shrubberies Two Or Three Times, Not Seeing A Step Before Me, Till I Came Out Upon The Broader Carriage-road, Where The Trees Opened A Little, And There Was A Faint Grey Glimmer Of Sky Visible, Under Which The Great Limes And Elms Stood Darkling Like Ghosts; But It Grew Black Again As I Approached The Corner Where The Ruins Lay. ("The Open Door")]

Empedocles Quotes

"At first sight nothing seems more obvious than that everything has a beginning and an end, and that everything can be subdivided into smaller parts. Nevertheless, for entirely speculative reasons the philosophers of Antiquity, especially the Stoics, concluded this concept to be quite unnecessary. The prodigious development of physics has now reached the same conclusion as those philosophers, Empedocles and Democritus in particular, who lived around 500 B.C.E. and for whom even ancient man had a lively admiration."

Quotes About Trade Winds

"There you stand, lost in the infinite series of the sea, with nothing ruffled but the waves. The tranced ship indolently rolls; the drowsy trade winds blow; everything resolves you into languor. For the most part, in this tropic whaling life, a sublime uneventfulness invests you; you hear no news; read no gazettes; extras with startling accounts of commonplaces never delude you into unnecessary excitements; you hear of no domestic afflictions; bankrupt securities; fall of stocks; are never troubled with the thought of what you shall have for dinner - for all your meals for three years and more are snugly stowed in casks, and your bill of fare is immutable.

I think she walked among her sisters, and for the first time saw that they were so beautiful, and she loved them.
