56 World Quotes from Literature

Think you of the fact that a deaf person cannot hear. Then, what deafness may we not all possess? What senses do we lack that we cannot see and cannot hear another world all around us? ~ Dune by Frank Herbert I remembered that the real world was wide, and that a varied field of hopes and fears, of sensations and excitements, awaited those who had courage to go forth into its expanse, to seek real knowledge of life amidst its perils. ~ Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte The world is one great web, and a man dare not touch a single strand lest all the others tremble. ~ A Dance with Dragons by George R. R. Martin Ah, happiness courts the light, so we deem the world is gay; but misery hides aloof, so we deem that misery there is none. ~ Bartleby, the Scrivener by Herman Melville There are a set of religious, or rather moral writers, who teach that virtue is the certain road to happiness, and vice to misery, in this world. A very wholesome and comfortable doctrine, and to which we have but one objection, namely, that it is not true. ~ Tom Jones by Henry Fielding Perhaps no man could appreciate his own world until he had seen it from space. ~ A Fall of Moondust by Arthur C. Clarke The world is full enough of hurts and mischances without wars to multiply them. ~ The Return of the King by J. R. R. Tolkien The wide world is all about you: you can fence yourselves in, but you cannot for ever fence it out. ~ The Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkien Being in a minority, even a minority of one, did not make you mad. There was truth and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad. ~ Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell The world is a stage, but the play is badly cast. ~ Lord Arthur Savile's Crime by Oscar Wilde
