Louise Chandler Moulton quotes

  • At end of Love, at end of Life, At end of Hope, at end of Strife' At end of all we cling to so- The sun is setting-we must go. At dawn of Love, at dawn of Life, At dawn of Peace that follows Strife, At dawn of all we long for so- The sun is rising-let us go.
    -- Louise Chandler Moulton

  • I am tortured too. I am tortured by belly fat and magazine covers about how to please everyone but myself. I am tortured by sheep who click on anything that will guarantee a ten-pound loss in one week. Sheep who will get on their knees if it means someone will like them more. I am tortured by my inability to want to hang out with desperate sheep. I am tortured by ***** yearbooks full of bullshit. I met you when. I'll miss the times. I'll keep in touch. Best friends forever. Is this okay? Are you all right? Are you tortured too?

  • I don't know how long a child will remain utterly static in front of the television, but my guess is that it could be well into their thirties.

  • As long as you want anything very much, especially more than you want God, it is an idol.

  • When you get to my age life seems little more than one long march to and from the lavatory.

  • If you just try long enough and hard enough, you can always manage to boot yourself in the posterior.

  • I say to this night: "Pass more slowly"; and the dawn will come to dispel the night.

  • I shall pass Dawn on her way to earth, as I seek for a path through space.
