Shadows Quotes

Man is a substance clad in shadows.

John Sterling

And so I am become a knight of the Kingdom of Dreams and Shadows

Mark Twain

Thoughts are the shadows of our feelings - always darker, emptier and simpler.

Friedrich Nietzsche

You can only come to the morning through the shadows

J.R.R. Tolkien

Afflictions are but the shadows of God's wings.

George MacDonald

Poetry is the art of substantiating shadows, and of lending existence to nothing.

Edmund Burke

Thus shadow owes its birth to light.

John Gay

Just as tall trees are known by their shadows, so are good men known by their enemies

Chinese Proverb

Now, when our Lord was come to eighteen years, The King commanded that there should be built Three stately houses, one of hewn square beams With cedar lining, warm for winter days; One of veined marbles, cool for summer heat; And one of burned bricks, with blue tiles bedecked, Pleasant at seed-time, when the champaks bud-- Subha, Suramma, Ramma, were their names. Delicious gardens round about them bloomed, Streams wandered wild and musky thickets stretched, With many a bright pavilion and fair lawn In midst of which Siddartha strayed at will, Some new delight provided every hour; And happy hours he knew, for life was rich, With youthful blood at quickest; yet still came The shadows of his meditation back, As the lake's silver dulls with driving clouds.

Sir Edwin Arnold

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
