Famous quotes containing the words mystery, blue and/or train:

    Crime seems to change character when it crosses a bridge or a tunnel. In the city, crime is taken as emblematic of class and race. In the suburbs, though, it’s intimate and psychological—resistant to generalization, a mystery of the individual soul.
    Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941)

    Tom-tom, c’est moi. The blue guitar
    And I are one.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Misfortunes leave wounds which bleed drop by drop even in sleep; thus little by little they train man by force and dispose him to wisdom in spite of himself. Man must learn to think of himself as a limited and dependent being; and only suffering teaches him this.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)
