[Know Ye Not That There Is Here In This World A Secret Confraternity, Which One Might Call The Company Of Melancholiacs? That People There Are Who By Natural Constitution Have Been Given A Different Nature And Disposition Than The Others; That Have A Larger Heart And A Swifter Blood, That Wish And Demand More, Have Stronger Desires And A Yearning Which Is Wilder And More Ardent Than That Of The Common Herd. They Are Fleet As Children Over Whose Birth Good Fairies Have Presided; Their Eyes Are Opened Wider; Their Senses Are More Subtile In All Their Perceptions. The Gladness And Joy Of Life, They Drink With The Roots Of Their Heart, The While The Others Merely Grasp Them With Coarse Hands.]

Quotes About About Love And Life

"alentines Day is coming up and many persons will feel bothered by the fact that theyre still single. At one point I was also there and I know how it feels, but my advice to you is no to allow the spirit of this season to spoil your inner peace. Valentines is not so much about love and relationships as it is about money and creating a false sense of worth for those unable to fully indulge themselves.A relationship is no measure of a persons worth, as a matter of fact many professional and driven persons of sound character and strength are single for the very reason that relationships are very difficult to focus on while pursuing goals.

Quotes About The Divided Self

"His sensitive nature was still smarting under the lashes of an undivided and squalid way of life. His soul was still disquieted and cast down by the dull phenomenon of Dublin. He had emerged from a two years spell of revery to find himself in the midst of a new scene, every event and figure of which affected him intimately, disheartened him or allured and, whether alluring or disheartening, filled him always with unrest and bitter thoughts. All the leisure which his school life left him was passed in the company of subversive writers whose jibes and violence of speech set up a ferment in his brain before they passed out of it into his crude writings." - Author: James Joyce

Quotes About Make Friends

"The three of us do not go out very often as the three of us. I think Daniel is perfect for Jed, which is the highest compliment I can give. But my friendship isnt with him, and Jed understands that. When we hit the road, we hit it together alone.We get to the bridge, out undestined destination. Even though theres no sign, no arrow, Jed turns at the last minute and parks us in a verge right before the bridge leaves the ground.The trunk pops open, and Jed runs round back to retrieve a bag of oranges and a sweatshirt that fits me better.Shall we make like lizards and leap? he asks.I never felt the urge to jump off a bridge, but there are times I have wanted to jump out of my life, out of my skin. Would you stroll me down the promenade instead? I ask back.Most certainly, my splendid. There is no word for our kind of friendship. Two people tho dont see each other a lot, but can make each other effortlessly happy." - Author: David Levithan
