“I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship.”
Little Women
“Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.”
“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
“There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after.”
The Hobbit
“Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.”
“The Second Coming”
“In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure-dome decree:
Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man
Down to a sunless sea.”
“Kubla Khan: or A Vision in a Dream”
“The past is never dead. In fact, it’s not even past.”
Requiem for a Nun
“To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them. To die: to sleep…”
“It is nothing to die; it is dreadful not to live.”
Les Misérables
“She had waited all her life for something, and it had killed her when it found her.”
