Dark Quotes

When people talk about my dark days, when I sit down and think about it - the misdemeanours I've had, with the things that go on in the real world, - the things I have done are stupid and foolish. But they are not war crimes. That's what gets me. When footballers are on the front page and on page seven is something about soldiers dying or floods or the real tragedies in this world, I ask myself how we can justify that.

Joey Barton

There is no drop more loved by God than a teardrop that falls in the dark of the night from fear of God, meant solely for Him and no one else.

al-Baqir, Muhammad

I knew then that they had been men, neither gods nor demons. It is a great knowledge, hard to tell and believe. They were men they went a dark road, but they were men. I have been in the Place of the Gods and seen it! Now slay me, if it is the law but still I know they were men.

Stephen Vincent Bent

Oh dear and laughing, lost to me, Hidden in grey Eternity, I shall attain, with burning feet, To you and to the mercy-seat! The ages crumble down like dust, Dark roses, deviously thrust And scattered in sweet wine but I, I shall lift up to you my cry, And kiss your wet lips presently Beneath the ever-living Tree. This in my heart I keep for goad! Somewhere, in Heaven she walks that road. Somewhere... in Heaven... she walks... that... road...

Stephen Vincent Bent

May we feel after Thee; still calling out in the darkness, as children waking in the night call "Father," so may we call out for God; and, at times, even if we do not hear Thy voice, may there be the form of a hand resting upon us, and that shall be enough; for we shall take hold of it, though it be in the dark, and it shall guide us to the growing light; for the day shall come, and the release and triumph.

Henry Ward Beecher

His ridiculous and diabolical opinions made me shudder. I began to look a little more closely at this person and was amazed to see something frightening in his face that I had not noticed before: his eyes were small and sunken, his skin dark, his mouth big, his chin hairy and his nails black. Oh God, I thought immediately, this miserable creature is condemned already and may even be the Antichrist that people talk about so much in our world.

Cyrano Hercule Savinien de Bergerac

Often I wonder what does really God get from me in this state no faith, no love not even in feelings. The other day I can't tell you how bad I felt. There was a moment when I nearly refused to accept. Deliberately I took the Rosary and very slowly and without even meditating or thinking I said it slowly and calmly. The moment passed- but the darkness is so dark, and the pain is so painful. But I accept whatever He gives and I give whatever He takes. People say they are drawn closer to God- seeing my strong faith. is this not deceiving people? Every time I have wanted to tell the truth that I have no faith the words just do not come my mouth remains closed. And yet I still keep on smiling at God and all.

Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Dark to me is the earth. Dark to me are the heavens. Where is she that I loved, the woman with eyes like stars? Desolate are the streets. Desolate is the city. A city taken by storm, where none are left but the slain.

Wilfrid Scawen Blunt

I was told you either stand or you fall, as long as you know when you walk you holding' hands with a god. That alone can turn the dark to a walk in the park.

Johnson Barnes

Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone Don't you think I was too young to be messed with, The girl in the dress cried the whole way home, Dear John, I see it all now it was wrong, Don't you think 19s too young to be played by, your dark twisted games when I loved you so.

Taylor Swift

My mind shine even when my thoughts seem dark.

Lil Wayne

Eat in the dark the bargain that you purchased in the dusk.

Ernest Brammah Smith

There are few situations in life that cannot be honourably settled, and without loss of time, either by suicide, a bag of gold, or by thrusting a despised antagonist over the edge of a precipice upon a dark night.

Ernest Brammah Smith

I see not a step before me as I tread on another year; But I ve left the Past in Gods keeping,the Future His mercy shall clear; And what looks dark in the distance may brighten as I draw near.

Mary Gardiner Brainard

Events are the ephemera of history; they pass across its stage like fireflies, hardly glimpsed before they settle back into darkness and as often as not into oblivion. Every event, however brief, has to be sure a contribution to make, lights up some dark corner or even some wide vista of history.

Fernand Braudel

On the floor, and hanging on to the bar, squatted an old man, immobile as an object. His years had reduced and polished him as water does a stone or the generations of men do a sentence. He was dark, dried up , diminutive, and seemed outside time, situated in eternity.

Jorge Luis Borges

Afflictions, they are but as a dark entry into your Father's house; they are but as a dirty lane to a royal palace. Now, tell me, souls, whether it be not very great madness to shun the ways of holiness, and to walk in the ways of wickedness, because of those afflictions which attend the ways of holiness.

Thomas Brooks

O little town of Bethlehem, How still we see thee lie! Above thy deep and dreamless sleep The silent stars go by; Yet in thy dark streets shineth The everlasting Light; The hopes and fears of all the years Are met in thee to-night.

Phillips Brooks

Nary a grin grinned Rudolph Reed, Nary a curse cursed he, But moved in his House. With his dark little wife, And his dark little children three.

Gwendolyn Brooks

Is earnest enough, may earnest attract or lead to light; Is light enough, if hands in clumsy frenzy, flimsy whimsically, enlist; Is light enough when this bewilderment crying against the dark shuts down the shades? Dilute confusion. Find and explode our mist.

Gwendolyn Brooks

Thou unrelenting Past! Strong are the barriers round thy dark domain, And fetters, sure and fast, Hold all that enter thy unbreathing reign.

William Cullen Bryant

I praise Thee while my days go on; I love Thee while my days go on: Through dark and dearth, through fire and frost, With emptied arms and treasure lost, I thank Thee while my days go on. And having in thy life-depth thrown Being and suffering (which are one), As a child drops his pebble small Down some deep well, and hears it fall Smiling so I. THY DAYS GO ON.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Life itself is but the shadow of death, and souls departed but the shadows of the living: All things fall under this name. The Sun itself is but the dark simulacrum, and the light but the shadow of God.

Sir Thomas Browne
