27 Shadows Quotes from Literature

"You will be required to do wrong no matter where you go. It is the basic condition of life, to be required to violate your own identity. At some time, every creature which lives must do so. It is the ultimate shadow, the defeat of creation; this is the curse at work, the curse that feeds on all life. Everywhere in the universe." ~ Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick There are shadows because there are hills. ~ A Room With A View by E. M. Forster "We cast a shadow on something wherever we stand, and it is no good moving from place to place to save things; because the shadow always follows. Choose a place where you won't do harm–yes, choose a place where you won't do very much harm, and stand in it for all you are worth, facing the sunshine." ~ A Room With A View by E. M. Forster Men live their lives trapped in an eternal present, between the mists of memory and the sea of shadow that is all we know of the days to come. ~ A Dance with Dragons by George R. R. Martin Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie. ~ The Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkien Why, how much better to be silly, than as wise as you! You don't see shadowy people there, like those that live in sleep—not you. Nor eyes in the knotted panes of glass, nor swift ghosts when it blows hard, nor do you hear voices in the air, nor see men stalking in the sky—not you! I lead a merrier life than you, with all your cleverness. You're the dull men. We're the bright ones. ~ Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens A dream itself is but a shadow. ~ Hamlet, Prince of Denmark by William Shakespeare In any case life is but a procession of shadows, and God knows why it is that we embrace them so eagerly, and see them depart with such anguish, being shadows. ~ Jacob's Room by Virginia Woolf But injustice breeds injustice; the fighting with shadows and being defeated by them necessitates the setting up of substances to combat. ~ Bleak House by Charles Dickens The shadows of our own desires stand between us and our better angels, and thus their brightness is eclipsed. ~ Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens
