Lonely Hearts Club

Famous quotes containing the words lonely, hearts and/or club:

    Each lonely scene shall thee restore;
    For thee the tear be duly shed;
    Beloved till life can charm no more,
    And mourn’d till Pity’s self be dead.
    William Collins (1721–1759)

    The hearts of Afro-American women are too warm and too large for race hatred. Long suffering has so chastened them that they are developing a special sense of sympathy for all who suffer and fail of justice.
    Fannie Barrier Williams (1855–1944)

    I spoke at a woman’s club in Philadelphia yesterday and a young lady said to me afterwards, “Well, that sounds very nice, but don’t you think it is better to be the power behind the throne?” I answered that I had not had much experience with thrones, but a woman who has been on a throne, and who is now behind it, seems to prefer to be on the throne.
    Anna Howard Shaw (1847–1919)
