Lonely Hearts Club

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

    The poem is lonely. It is lonely and en route. Its author stays with it. Does this very fact not place the poem already here, at its inception, in the encounter, in the mystery of encounter?

    O God of battles, steel my soldiers’ hearts.
    Possess them not with fear. Take from them now
    The sense of reckoning, ere th’ opposed numbers
    Pluck their hearts from them.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The adjustment of qualities is so perfect between men and women, and each is so necessary to the other, that the idea of inferiority is absurd.
