For while the tale of how we suffer, and how we are delighted and how we may triumph is never new, it always must be heard. There isnít any other tale to tell. Itís the only light weíve got in all this darkness.
View quotes by James Baldwin

Should all despair That have revolted wives, the tenth of mankind Would hang themselves (The Winter's Tale Act 1, Scene 2)
View quotes by William Shakespeare

Man passes away; his names perishes from record and recollection; his history is as a tale that is told, and his very monument becomes a ruin.

View quotes by Thomas Mann

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way (A Tale of Two Cities)
View quotes by Charles Dickens

To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow; a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
Macbeth, Act 5 Scene 5
View quotes by William Shakespeare

And so, from hour to hour, we ripe and ripe, And then from hour to hour, we rot and rot: And thereby hangs a tale (As You Like It, Act 2 Scene 7)
View quotes by William Shakespeare
