17 Secrets Quotes from Literature

A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other. ~ A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens But who ever yet was offered a secret and declined it? ~ Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope For the first time he perceived that if you want to keep a secret you must also hide it from yourself. ~ Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell Never tell all you know—not even to the person you know best. ~ The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie "There are no secrets better kept than the secrets everybody guesses." ~ Mrs. Warren's Profession by George Bernard Shaw Our souls are like those orphans whose unwedded mothers die in bearing them: the secret of our paternity lies in their grave, and we must there to learn it. ~ Moby Dick by Herman Melville Her heart lived in no cherished secrets of its own, but in feelings which it longed to share with all the world. ~ Adam Bede by George Eliot In all secrets there is a kind of guilt, however beautiful or joyful they may be, or for what good end they may be set to serve. Secrecy means evasion, and evasion means a problem to the moral mind. ~ The Right of Way by Gilbert Parker "There's no tongue that's so tied, when tying's needed, as the one that babbles most bewhiles. Babbling covers a lot of secrets." ~ Northern Lights by Gilbert Parker The evening wind made such a disturbance just now, among some tall old elm-trees at the bottom of the garden, that neither my mother nor Miss Betsey could forbear glancing that way. As the elms bent to one another, like giants who were whispering secrets, and after a few seconds of such repose, fell into a violent flurry, tossing their wild arms about, as if their late confidences were really too wicked for their peace of mind. ~ David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
