J. Sheridan Le Fanu

But dreams come through stone walls, light up dark rooms, or darken light ones, and their persons make their exits and their entrances as they please, and laugh at locksmiths. ~ Carmilla by J. Sheridan Le Fanu Life and death are mysterious states, and we know little of the resources of either. ~ Carmilla by J. Sheridan Le Fanu There comes with old age a time when the heart is no longer fusible or malleable, and must retain the form in which it has cooled down. ~ Uncle Silas by J. Sheridan Le Fanu How marvellously lie our anxieties, in filmy layers, one over the other! Take away that which has lain on the upper surface for so long-the care of cares-the only one, as it seemed to you, between your soul and the radiance of Heaven-and straight you find a new stratum there. ~ Uncle Silas by J. Sheridan Le Fanu "The world," he resumed after a short pause, "has no faith in any man's conversion; it never forgets what he was, it never believes him anything better, it is an inexorable and stupid judge." ~ Uncle Silas by J. Sheridan Le Fanu The effect of all this was that I blushed one of my overpowering blushes. People told me they became me very much; I hope so, for the misfortune was frequent; and I think nature owed me that compensation. ~ Uncle Silas by J. Sheridan Le Fanu Perhaps other souls than human are sometimes born into the world, and clothed in flesh. ~ Uncle Silas by J. Sheridan Le Fanu There is no dealing with great sorrow as if it were under the control of our wills. It is a terrible phenomenon, whose laws we must study, and to whose conditions we must submit, if we would mitigate it. ~ Uncle Silas by J. Sheridan Le Fanu "No one is ever too old to do a foolish thing." ~ Uncle Silas by J. Sheridan Le Fanu "I'd much rather have no religion, and enjoy life while I'm in it, than choose one to worry me here and bedevil me hereafter." ~ Uncle Silas by J. Sheridan Le Fanu
