Lost Quotes

Better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all.

St. Augustine

Its a shame, she had me convinced that she couldve been a dime. I guess I lost another one to the wintertime.


If yet not lost to all the sense of shame.


Love is never lost. If not reciprocated, it will flow back and soften and purify the heart.

Washington Irving

Umbrellas, like faces, acquire a certain sympathy with the individual who carries them. May it not be said of the bearers of these inappropriate umbrellas, that they go about the streets 'with a lie in their right hand?' Except in a very few cases of hypocrisy joined to a powerful intellect, men, not by nature, umbrellarians, have tried again and again to become so by art, and yet have failed, have expended their patrimony in the purchase of umbrella after umbrella, and yet have systematically lost them, and have finally, with contrite spirits and shrunken purses, given up their vain struggle, and relied on theft and borrowing for the remainder of their lives.

Robert Louis Stevenson

Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.

John Quincy Adams

Marshall McLuhan

It is certain that during the sixteenth century, and the years that preceded and followed it, poisoning was brought to a perfection unknown to modern chemistry, as history itself will prove.

Honor de Balzac

Isaac Asimov

If you can't answer a man's arguments, all is not lost; you can still call him vile names.

Elbert Hubbard

Learning without thought is labor lost.


Dostoevski said that taking a new step is what people fear the most. Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and chance the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution.

Saul David Alinsky

Advances in medicine and agriculture have saved vastly more lives than have been lost in all the wars in history.

Dr. Carl Sagan
