James A. Garfield
Under what rubric of common sense would you release violent criminals who are illegal back onto the streets in America? Why would you not deport them? I mean, you have them. It’s not like you have to go to the shadows and find these people. They are in your jail cell. They’re in your prison cell.

Hope is a delusion; no hand can grasp a wave or a shadow.
Victor Hugo
Old age is not one of the beauties of creation, but it is one of its harmonies. The law of contrasts is one of the laws of beauty. Under the conditions of our climate, shadow gives light its worth; sternness enhances mildness; solemnity, splendor. Varying proportions of size support and subserve one another.
Sophie Swetchine

Ray Bradbury
Beautiful men and women with distorted shadows came and scorched their handprints onto doors before vanishing skyward, drafts of heat billowing behind them with the whumph of unseen wings.

Frederick William Robertson
If I could sum up ‘Shadow’s Claim’ in six words: cage fights with hot alpha males. Seriously, though, while the fights are the backdrop for Trehan and Bettina’s love story, the main emphasis is on how Trehan – a pitiless master assassin – wages the ultimate battle to win her heart.

Gideon was a force of nature, his magnetic self-possession so powerful it put everyone around him in his shadow. I saw flashes of it every day and was awed by it, but not nearly as much as I was by the charming, wryly amusing lover I had entirely to myself in our private moments together.

Ben Jonson
In a face, look for the main light and the main shadow; the rest will come naturally — it’s often not important. And then you must cultivate your memory, because Nature will only provide you with references. Nature is like a warden in a lunatic asylum. It stops you from becoming banal.

Wassily Kandinsky

I love eyebrows, so brow pencils and brow shadow are really important to me.
Zara Larsson
A big part of filmmaking, and a big part of the power of filmmaking, is creating characters that people fall in love with. So, those things, like the bloopers, create more reality and dimension, and the sense that these are not drawings or shadows, but they are living, breathing, thinking characters. That’s the illusion.
Rob Minkoff
Imagination builds the image of the self, and thought then functions within its shadows. From this self-concept grows the conflict between what is and what should be, the conflict in duality.

My makeup artist likes to define my brows with Maybelline Brow Drama. We brush up on the part closest to my nose and it’s straight after that. Then, I like to use the matte brown shades from Maybelline The Nudes Palette to shadow my eyes, but without it looking like I’m wearing much.
Gigi Hadid
I envy you going to Oxford: it is the most flower-like time of one’s life. One sees the shadow of things in silver mirrors. Later on, one sees the Gorgon’s head, and one suffers, because it does not turn one to stone.
Oscar Wilde
By day each soul must walk within its shadow. Only night can make us whole again.
Nick Gordon

The mother of months in meadow or plain
Fills the shadows and windy places
With lisp of leaves and ripple of rain.

Placing your stick at the end of the shadow of the pyramid, you made by the sun’s rays two triangles, and so proved that the pyramid [height] was to the stick [height] as the shadow of the pyramid to the shadow of the stick.

Fernando Pessoa
We’ve come to a basic agreement, which is that first, people will be legalized. In other words, not citizens, but they’ll be allowed to work, come out of the shadows, travel. Then, we will make sure the border is secure. And we have specific metrics that are in the bill. I’m not going to get into what they are…
Charles Schumer
We are the shadow cast by real people. And that shadow changes shape as the news cycle changes shape, so you always have fresh dirt to dig in.
Stephen Colbert
Y’all might as well come on out,” I said. “I know you’re there. I can smell you.” “Smell me? But I just took a shower this morning!” an indignant voice drifted out of the shadows. There was a loud sound, like someone was getting smacked upside the head. Then another voice let out a low mutter. “Shut up, idiot.
Jennifer Estep
Professions of humility are the very cream, the very essence of pride; the really humble person wishes to be, and not to appear so. Humility is timorous, and starts at her shadow; and so delicate that if she hears her name pronounced it endangers her existence.
Saint Francis de Sales
They were jet, those wings, as deep as the sky, as black as Eoduin’s hair—no, blacker, for they were dull, unoiled. They gave off no sheen in the light, no gleam to the eye. They drank up the light and diminished it: they were wings of pure shadow.
Meredith Ann Pierce
The shadows cannot speak.
Paula Gunn Allen
What labor and pains worldlings take to obtain the vain things of this life-to obtain the poor things of this world, which are but shadows and dreams, and mere nothings!
Thomas Brooks
When shadows fall and the path you walk grows dark, may the smile of God light your way.
Lance Wubbels
Now the Fates are here on the beach, three shadows blacker than black, walking through the dunes and looking for their own. Just shadows, lamb-white hands beneath black robes spun of tears, glide among the celebrants on this night wherein the spirits of Thebes have found a home, if serendipitously.
Janet Morris
You must cast yourself on God’s gospel with all your weight, without any hanging back, without any doubt, without even the shadow of a suspicion that it will give.

Charles Spurgeon
In beloved Iraq, blood is flowing between brothers, in the shadow of an illegitimate foreign occupation, and abhorrent sectarianism threatens a civil war.
Abdullah of Saudi Arabia
The unicorn lived in a lilac wood, and she lived all alone. She was very old, though she did not know it, and she was no longer the careless color of sea foam but rather the color of snow falling on a moonlit night. But her eyes were still clear and unwearied, and she still moved like a shadow on the sea.
Peter S. Beagle
Art teaches you the philosophy of life, and if you can’t learn it from art, you can’t learn it at all. It shows you that there is no perfection. There is light, and there is shadow. Everything is in half tint.
William Morris Hunt
Our shadows are taller than ourselves.
Natalie Clifford Barney
The rewards are profound. Shadow-work enables us to alter our self-sabotaging behavior so that we can achieve a more self-directed life.
Connie Zweig
Churchill had a marvelous way with words, and greatness accompanied him like a shadow, but in certain ways, he was a 19th-century man wandering, confounded, in the 20th.
Richard Cohen
A life like an intricately woven basket, frayed, worn, broken, unraveled, reworked, reknit from many of its original pieces… Life can survive in the constant shadow of illness, and even rise to moments of rampant joy, but the shadow remains, and one has to make space for it.
Diane Ackerman

Matt Groening

Meldrim Thomson, Jr.
Without a shadow of doubt, Trafalgar Square has to be one of the most crap urban public spaces in the world.

George R. R. Martin
And first he will see the shadows best, next the reflections of men and other objects in the water, and then the objects themselves, then he will gaze upon the light of the moon and the stars and the spangled heaven…Last of all he will be able to see the sun.
The myths have always condemned those who ‘looked back.’ Condemned them, whatever the paradise may have been which they were leaving. Hence this shadow over each departure from your decision.

O. Henry
I made so many films I thought were great and they turned out horrible, and I made films I did not believe in at all, and ‘Shadow Of The Vampire’ was one of these films I did not believe in during the shooting. And then when I saw it I was surprised what they had made out of it. They edited for quite a long time.

Jonathan Safran Foer
She stepped out from among their shifting confusion of lovely lights and shadows. A circle of grass, smooth as a lawn, met her eyes, with dark trees dancing all around it. And then –Oh Joy! For he was there: the huge Lion, shining white in the moonlight, with his huge black shadow underneath him.

Friedrich Nietzsche
He existed a step or two to one side of the common world, largely out of sight, a shadow, all but invisible.

The living seem more shadowy than they.
William Butler Yeats

J. R. R. Tolkien

Action hangs, as it were, dissolved in speech, in thoughts whereof speech is the shadow; and precipitates itself therefrom. The kind of speech in a man betokens the kind of action you will get from him.

Hermann Minkowski
A rose by any other name Would get the blame For being what it is– The colour of a kiss, The shadow of a flame. A rose may earn another name, So call it love; So call it love I will, And love is like the sea, Which changes constantly, And yet is still The same.
Tanith Lee
In this world everything changes except good deeds and bad deeds; these follow you as the shadow follows the body.

Burn brightly without burning out. Throw your heart over the fense and the rest will follow. Keep your face to the sunshine and you wont see the shadows

Alexander Gordon Smith
It’s hard enough to just be a good actor. When you’re on set, there’s everything going against you. There are walkie talkies going off, the camera is creaking and moving, there are boom mics, and you have to hit your mark and make sure you don’t shadow the other person’s face. It’s a really technical process.
James Marsden
To live by grace means to acknowledge my whole life story, the light side and the dark. In admitting my shadow side I learn who I am and what God’s grace means.

Towards the end of ‘Dark Shadows,’ the sets are cracking and bleeding, but so is Angelique. The fact that she breaks apart physically as well as mentally lends an added dimension, and I just loved playing that.
Eva Green
If nations could overcome the mutual fear and distrust whose sombre shadow is now thrown over the world, and could meet with confidence and good will to settle their possible differences, they would easily be able to establish a lasting peace.
Fridtjof Nansen
~I’ve learned the value of absorbing the moment. I remember the first time Ripley saw her shadow. My God, it was like shadows had just been invented. It was the most exquisite moment.~
Thandie Newton
Jealousy, and local policy mix too much in all our public councils for the good government of the Union. In a words, the confederation appears to me to be little more than a shadow without the substance . . . .
George Washington
The history of the cosmos
is the history of the struggle of becoming.
When the dim flux of unformed life
struggled, convulsed back and forth upon itself,
and broke at last into light and dark
came into existence as light,
came into existence as cold shadow
then every atom of the cosmos trembled with delight.
D. H. Lawrence
In order to reclaim the joy and passion of leadership, we must walk the valley of the shadow of death and name the cost of leadership.
Dan B. Allender
I am keenly aware of how many people the Six of Crows stories’ brought into the Grishaverse, and to me, the story of the Crows, of Kaz and his crew, provides a very different kind of story and point of view, than Shadow and Bone’ and Alina’s story.
Leigh Bardugo
The evening advanced. The shadows lengthened. The waters of the lake grew pitchy black. The gliding of the ghostly swans became rare and more rare.
Wilkie Collins
The shadow of human life is traced upon a golden ground of immortal hope.
George Stillman Hillard
We should be proud that so many want to come to America, that it is still seen as the land of opportunity. Let’s make it a land of legal work, not black-market jobs. Let’s make it a land of work, not welfare. Our land should be one of assimilation, not hiding in the shadows.
Rand Paul
His argument is as thin as the homeopathic soup that was made by oiling the shadow of a pigeon that had been starved to death.
Abraham Lincoln
In your own bosom you bear your heaven and earth,
And all you behold, though it appears without,
It is within, in your imagination,
Of which this world of mortality is but a shadow.
William Blake
The goal is always to make a nice tableau painting with the voice. The more color I can find, the more shadow I can find – the goal is always to make more nuance and colors.
Cecilia Bartoli
It is only the quietest one who can hear all the voices of the world; only the shadows can see all the lights!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
In the deep shadow of the porch
A slender bind-weed springs,
And climbs, like airy acrobat,
The trellises, and swings
And dances in the golden sun
In fairy loops and rings.
Sarah Chauncey Woolsey
Nevertheless, the consuming hunger of the uncritical mind for what it imagines to be certainty or finality impels it to feast upon shadows in the prevailing famine of substance.
Eric Temple Bell
In France, the people were the sport of a king’s caprice. Everywhere was the shadow of the Bastille. It fell upon the sunniest field, upon the happiest home.
Robert Green Ingersoll
Most people don’t really like to pose. It is difficult to get them to be present and relaxed under this kind of molecular scrutiny. I want them to understand I’m not simply painting them: I am painting them within a precise moment in time, as a shadow moves across their eyebrows. Then it is gone. The moment is over.
Taylor Negron
Beginnings are sudden, but also insidious. They creep up on you sideways, they keep to the shadows, they lurk unrecognized. Then, later, they spring.
Margaret Atwood
Many men spend their lives in gazing at their own shadows, and so dwindle away into shadows thereof.
Augustus William Hare
A light here required a shadow there.
Virginia Woolf
In chess, as a purely intellectual game, where randomness is excluded, – for someone to play against himself is absurd … It is as paradoxical, as attempting to jump over his own shadow.
Stefan Zweig
I knew about boxing, as my dad could fight. He had a successful security firm in Liverpool, and I’d see him come back from a jog before shadow boxing in the back yard. I’d watch and replicate what he was doing, as kids do. It’s funny how things turn out.
Tony Bellew
My quest, through the magic of light and shadow, is to isolate, to simplify and to give emphasis to form with the greatest clarity. To indicate the ideal proportion, to reveal sculptural mass and the dominating spirit is my goal.
Ruth Bernhard
We all have a dark side. Most of us go through life avoiding direct confrontation with that aspect of ourselves, which I call the shadow self. There’s a reason why. It carries a great deal of energy.
Lorraine Toussaint
How you’re still always trapped. How your head is the cave, your eyes the cave mouth. How you live inside your head and only see what you want. How you only watch the shadows and make up your own meaning.
Chuck Palahniuk
Every where the years bring to all enough of sin and sorrow; but in slavery the very dawn of life is darkened by these shadows
Harriet Ann Jacobs
Intelligence is a harder gift. For this you must work, you must practice it, challenge it, and maybe toward the end of your life you will master it. Cleverness is the shadow, whereas intelligence is the substance. -Doc
Bryce Courtenay
I love eye shadows that are shimmery and playing with colors. There’s just more you can do with your eyes.
Carrie Underwood
Historic inequality continues to cast a long shadow on more than just law enforcement. It affects everything from housing to employment to transportation.
Kevin Faulconer
I am not bound for any public place, but for ground of my own where I have planted vines and orchard trees, and in the heat of the day climbed up into the healing shadow of the woods.
Wendell Berry
Where ever fear shadows…. that always means there is a light shining somewhere.
Jonathan dos Santos
From the shadow of domes in the city of domes,
A snowflake, a blizzard of one, weightless, entered your room
And made its way to the arm of the chair where you, looking up
From your book, saw it the moment it landed. That’s all
There was to it.
Mark Strand
Anybody who tries to change society without examining the family is trying to push a shadow without moving a statue.
Stefan Molyneux
Even the most solid of things, and the most real, the best-loved and the well-known, are only hand shadows on the wall. Empty space and points of light.
Jeanette Winterson
I think I definitely work out of my father’s shadow, but it was hard in the beginning. But I would never change my last name, and I couldn’t be more proud to carry on his legacy.
Charlotte Flair
Do your eye shadow first, then your foundation. That way, you can clean up any mess without starting all over again.
Zooey Deschanel
I couldn’t see his face, because the light came in from behind him and he was in shadow, and he said, “I am Picasso.” And I said, “Well, so what?
Steve Martin
I see things, that’s all. Write enough stories and every shadow on the floor looks like a footprint; every line in the dirt like a secret message.
Stephen King
For no matter the shadows of an age, the picture of a young couple in love, we are told, speaks most luminously of the future, as the span of that passion makes us believe we can overleap any walls, obliterate whatever obstacles.
Chang-Rae Lee
Did you know? Did the cross cast a shadow on your cradle? Did you shudder each time your hammer struck a nail? How much heaven and how much earth were in this baby at his birth? Did you know, or did you wonder?
Todd Agnew
Sunglasses are like eye shadow: They make everything look younger and pretty
Karl Lagerfeld
This wordly life is like a shadow. If you try to catch it, you will never be able to do so. If you turn your back towards it, it has no choice but to follow you.
Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya
I see the state of all of us who live, nothing more than phantoms or a weightless shadow.
Face towards the perfect image of every organ and the shadows of disease will never touch you.
Robert Collier
War and tooth enameled salted lemon childhoods All colors run, none of us solid Don’t look for shadow behind me I carry it within I live cycles of light and darkness
Suheir Hammad
Shadow is the diminution alike of light and of darkness, and stands between darkness and light.
Leonardo da Vinci
Fancies are like shadows…you can’t cage them, they’re such wayward, dancing things.
Lucy Maud Montgomery
Let beeves and home-bred kine partake The sweets of Burn-mill meadow; The swan on still St. Mary’s Lake Float double, swan and shadow!
William Wordsworth
To light a candle is to cast a shadow.
Ursula K. Le Guin
I cried for madder music and for stronger wine,
But when the feast is finished and the lamps expire,
Then falls thy shadow, Cynara! the night is thine.
Ernest Dowson
The devil considers all misplaced trust as devil worship, for he hides himself in its shadows.
Bill Johnson
To love someone is to isolate him from the world, wipe out every trace of him, dispossess him of his shadow, drag him into a murderous future. It is to circle around the other like a dead star and absorb him into a black light.
Jean Baudrillard
Fame is the shade of immortality, And in itself a shadow. Soon as caught, Contemn’d; it shrinks to nothing in the grasp.
Edward Young
It’s very easy to say that something is a shadow of itself, and it may be true in some senses.
Sydney Schanberg
The existence of illness in the body may no doubt be called a shadow of the true illness which is held by man in his mind.
Hazrat Inayat Khan
Donald Trump’s a bigot without a shadow of a doubt.
Cenk Uygur
The injuries we do in kind are visited upon us often. In the science of the mind, trying hard to move a shadow.
Lou Reed
But they know about us, they know, the four corners, and the chairs nearby us. Discerning shadows also know, and even the table keeps quiet.
Wislawa Szymborska
In past wars only homes burnt, but this time
Don’t be surprised if even loneliness ignites.
In past wars only bodys burnt, but this time
Don’t be surprised if even shadows ignite.
Sahir Ludhianvi
In our eyes the roads are endless. Two are crossroads of the shadow.
Federico Garcia Lorca
He wasn’t a hero. He wasn’t the man who stepped forward and saved the innocent. He was lost himself. Shadows had invaded a long time ago and stolen his life. But he would give anything he had left to be the man who found a way to save Judith
Christine Feehan
Call no man happy, said Shadow, until he is dead
Neil Gaiman
I have always wanted to make a film about my parents’ generation, which tried every way to escape from the deadly shadow of war and finally settled down in Hong Kong in the ’50s to build a home from nothing. Arguably, they are the first generation of Hong Kong people to turn this remote island into a modern city.
Mabel Cheung
What is a body that casts no shadow? Nothing, a formlessness, two-dimensional, a comic-strip character. If I deny my own profound relationship with evil I deny my own reality. I cannot do, or make; I can only undo, unmake.
Ursula K. Le Guin
[Happiness is] a ghost, it’s a shadow. You can’t really chase it. It’s a by-product, a very pleasant side effect to a life lived well.
Eric Weiner
Soon we will plunge ourselves into cold shadows, and all of summer’s stunning afternoons will be gone. I already hear the dead thuds of logs below falling on the cobblestones and the lawn.
Charles Baudelaire
Every murder turns on a bright hot light, and a lot of people have to walk out of the shadows.
Mark Hellinger
Everything that is,casts a shadow
Neil Gaiman
Heap up great wealth in your house, if you wish, and live as a tyrant, but, if the enjoyment of these things be lacking, I would not buy the rest for the shadow of smoke as against happiness.
In the empire of desert, water is the king and shadow is the queen.
Mehmet Murat Ildan
The shadow disguises itself in our projections, when we react intensely to a trait in others that we fail to see in ourselves.
Connie Zweig
I can understand there are things like shadows they need to fix after a shoot, but it’s unfair to represent an image of yourself if it’s not true. They’re gonna see what you look like on film anyway, so why try to cover all your wobbly bits in a photo?
Emily Blunt
Heaven and earth conspire that everything which has been, be rooted and reduced to dust. Only the dreamers, who dream while awake, call back the shadows of the past and braid nets from the unspun thread.
Isaac Bashevis Singer
What difference is there, do you think, between those in Plato’s cave who can only marvel at the shadows and images of various objects, provided they are content and don’t know what they miss, and the philosopher who has emerged from the cave and sees the real things?
Desiderius Erasmus
Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them, do not. Miss them, do not. Attachment leads to jealousy. The shadow of greed, that is. Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose
George Lucas
I had a great experience working with Dynamite on Masks, and had just gotten started on a stint on The Shadow with them when they floated the idea of a Captain Action series. I’ve been a little obsessed with the character since I was first introduced to him in the pages of Amazing Heroes back in the early 1980s.
Chris Roberson
Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.
Carl Jung
Misery is nothing but the shadow of attachment. And hence all stagnancy. The attached person becomes a stagnant pool – sooner or later he will stink. He flows no more.
When less than four years old I was standing with my nurse, Mary Ward, watching the shadows on the wall from branches of an elm behind which the moon had risen. I have never forgot those shadows and am often trying to paint them.
Samuel Palmer
In regard to infallibility, I never claimed it; God alone is infallible. His word is true, and in Him is no variableness, or shadow of turning.
Ellen G. White
Shadows are in reality, when the sun is shining, the most conspicuous thing in a landscape, next to the highest lights.
John Ruskin
You know, there’s a big world out there filled with desperate orphans who would gladly swim across an ocean of thumbtacks just to be eclipsed by the long shadow that is cast by my accomplishments.
Daniel Handler
I do not believe that ever any building was truly great, unless it had mighty masses, vigorous and deep, of shadow mingled with its surface.
John Ruskin
For a Bostonian… we live in the shadow of New York, and to be acknowledged by New Yorkers is really the greatest feeling.
Donnie Wahlberg
You seem to think you have a choice,” Cam said. “But you have it backwards. Love chooses you. The shadow moves as the sun commands.
Lisa Kleypas
When we see the shadow on our images, are we seeing the time 11 minutes ago on Mars? Or are we seeing the time on Mars as observed from Earth now? It’s like time travel problems in science fiction. When is now; when was then?
Bill Nye
Our days on earth are like a shadow, and the time of our affliction is the length of our days.
Shmuel Yosef Agnon
It seems to me the charm of etching is the glimmering through of the white paper even in the shadows so that almost everything sparkles or suggest sparkles.
Samuel Palmer
Books … were merely nodes in a near-infinite matrix of information that exists in four dimensions, evolving toward the idea of the concept of the approximation of the shadow of Truth vertically through time as well as longitudinally through knowledge.
Dan Simmons
He that first likened glory to a shadow did better than he was aware of. They are both of them things excellently vain. Glory also, like a shadow, goes sometimes before the body, and sometimes in length infinitely exceeds it.
Michel de Montaigne
For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty for ever beyond its reach.
J. R. R. Tolkien
My quest, through the magic of light and shadow, is to isolate, to simplify, and to give emphasis to form with the greatest clarity.
Ruth Bernhard
Fortune, honour, beauty, youth,
Are but blossoms dying;
Wanton pleasures, doting love,
Are but shadows flying.
Thomas Campion
There is a rhythm in life, a certain beauty which operates by a variation of lights and shadows, happiness alternating with sorrow, content with discontent, distilling in this process of contrast a sense of satisfaction, of richness that can be captured and pinned down only by those who possess the gift of awareness.
Louis Bromfield
It came to my house. It sat on my shoulders. Your shadow is yours. I told it so. I said it was yours. I have carried it with me too long. I give it back.
Mark Strand
But I was not made for the great light that devours, a dim lamp was all I had been given, and patience without end, to shine it on the empty shadows.
Samuel Beckett
Negotiations are a euphemism for capitulation if the shadow of power is not cast across the bargaining table.
George P. Shultz
How do you judge the brightness of a light when you’re the source? A spotlight can never see the shadows it casts.
Neal Shusterman
I like old people, just as I like old trees: in their shadow there is freshness and peace, one admires them, and around them everything is so calm.
Svetlana Alliluyeva
As a child, I felt that Hallowe’en was a time when creatures of the night suddenly came to life – we would turn off all the lights in the house and let flickering candlelight conjure up scary shadows and create the effect of imaginary figures lurking in dark corners.
Pippa Middleton
To those who feel defeated and downtrodden, look to the early hours of the day for your rescue…Shadows of yesterday’s grief melt in the rays of early morn’s opportunity.
Russell M. Nelson
The weary August days are long;
The locusts sing a plaintive song,
The cattle miss their master’s call
When they see the sunset shadows fall.
Edmund Clarence Stedman
For this I see, that we, all we that live, Are but vain shadows, unsubstantial dreams.
We dwell in shadow or in sunlight . . . according to our belief.
Joan Walsh Anglund
Look at that sea, girls–all silver and shadow and vision of things not seen. We couldn’t enjoy its loveliness any more if we had millions of dollars and ropes of diamonds.
Lucy Maud Montgomery
The shadow of fear and uncertainty lies over most of us; for us the future seems far from being as clear and open as we believed it would be.
Faith Baldwin
It seemed that I could tell the whole story pretty powerfully in those 18 months between October of ’62 and the spring of ’64 when they were all at their peak. And yet you could see some of the shadows of Detroit’s demise coming.
David Maraniss
Prestige is the shadow of money and power.
C. Wright Mills
Night is falling. The gods have left us for those who please them better. Our time in the world is passed, and we are as wasted as the wind against the mountains. Shadows are falling, the gods have left us.
Jim Grimsley
For the undocumented immigrants, the big priority is just to get out from the shadows, be able to get a driver’s license, buy an airplane ticket and stop worrying about sudden deportation. But for the country as a whole, it’s crucial that everybody have a citizen’s stake in the nation’s welfare.
Gail Collins
A photograph presents itself not only as a visual representation, but as evidence, more convincing than a painting because of the unimpeachable mechanical means whereby it was made. We do not trust the artist’s flattering hand; but we do trust film, and shadows, and light.
John Updike
Washington, D.C., has everything that Rome, Paris and London have in the way of great architecture – great power bases. Washington has obelisks and pyramids and underground tunnels and great art and a whole shadow world that we really don’t see.
Dan Brown
Fame is the shadow of passion standing in the light
Necessary, since every moment in our lives is marked by death, like a shadow from another realm, it appear to us like a vanishing point for everything. How can one meditate on live without meditating too on its brevity, its precariousness, its fragility?
Andre Comte-Sponville
We need to increase the transparency of shadow banking markets so that authorities can monitor for signs of excessive leverage and unstable maturity transformation outside regulated banks.
Janet Yellen
Our identity as Christians is strengthened as we stand in the lengthening shadows of saints down through the centuries, who have always answered back in antiphonal voice: ‘He is risen, indeed!’
Charles R. Swindoll
Even one hair has a shadow.
Publilius Syrus
Other men used their effete faiths and mean faculties with a high moral purpose. The Venetian gave the most earnest faith, and the lordliest faculty, to gild the shadows of an antechamber, or heighten the splendours of a holiday.
John Ruskin
Look closely at the Japanese; they draw admirably and yet in them you will see life outdoors and in the sun without shadows.
Paul Gauguin
Shall we mourn here deedless forever a shadow-folk mist-haunting dropping vain tears in the thankless sea
J. R. R. Tolkien
I think it’s the actor’s job – when you think of being typecast or getting out of the shadow of whatever you’ve had success in – it’s up to you as an actor. The industry will always want to hire you for what you were successful in last and what made money. But you can say no to that and look for other parts.
Ted Danson
I wear my shadows where they’re harder to see, but they follow me everywhere. I guess that should tell me I’m traveling toward light.
Bruce Cockburn
I don’t mean to cast a dark shadow on all your hopes and dreams, except of course I do, because that is who I am. I’m a dream ruiner.
Sarah Rees Brennan
You are never to allow a shadow of doubt to enter your mind that the Creator intended you to win in life’s battle.
Orison Swett Marden
I’m fascinated by power, especially veiled power. Shadow power. The National Security Agency. The National Reconnaissance Office. Opus Dei. The idea that everything happens for reasons we’re not quite seeing.
Dan Brown
Shadows cannot harm the almighty!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
That’s the storyboard that we have in the beginning [of Valerian]. It’s an easy shot. It’s just a spaceship coming in. That’s the first layout. On the first layout, we see the timing of the shot and the speed. It starts to get some shadows, and we see that everything is moving in the back.
Luc Besson
For 24 hours a day, for 10 years, all I thought about was being in a band. That’s all I did. I had no other social life. I don’t want my life to be like that now. I’ve spent the past 10 years having a real life as well. But Spandau Ballet is such a difficult shadow to outrun.
Gary Kemp
Before I knew the camera, I knew about images. It’s all about trying to make light with a pencil or with a crayon. It really helped me in the beginning, because I understood how light and shadow were working on an image.
Malick Sidibe
In a period piece, particularly a fantasy, the lighting is your own choice, the lenses are your own choice. It’s really a great thing for a cinematographer to do. Everything is open for you. You can even be more creative and you can use more shadows than usual.
Vilmos Zsigmond
A hunter of shadows, himself a shade.
What a Lover sees in the Beloved is the projected shadow of his own potential beauty in the eyes of God.
Coventry Patmore
‘Shadow Souls’ pushes probably every border that you can.
L. J. Smith
The dark in soul see in the universe their own shadow; the shattered spirit can only reflect external beauty in form as untrue and broken as itself.
Thomas Binney
Our imagination flies — we are its shadow on the earth.
Vladimir Nabokov
My father was my hero, both for the physical things he could do and for the values he taught me, about honesty and standing up for what you believe in. I never felt like I was living in his shadow.
Jack Hemingway
I’m a monster,” said the shadow of the Marquess suddenly. “Everyone says so.” The Minotaur glanced up at her. “So are we all, dear,” said the Minotaur kindly. “The thing to decide is what kind of monster to be. The kind who builds towns or the kind who breaks them.
Catherynne M. Valente
You’re the twinkling light in my eye. You’re my shadow always protecting me. You’ve always got my back, and I love you for that
Briana Evigan
If someone says ‘Give me one word of advice,’ I say ‘be fearless.’ And knowing without any shadow of a doubt that what they have to give – who they are – is totally unique and not shared by anybody else. And to believe in that uniqueness. It took me decades before I developed courage as an actor.
Patrick Stewart
We read the past by the light of the present, and the forms vary as the shadows fall, or as the point of vision alters.
James Anthony Froude
There is a black which is old and a black which is fresh. Lustrous black and dull black, black in sunlight and black in shadow.
Ad Reinhardt
A lot of the shadow self is the home of poetry, story, prayer. My deepest understandings are often released from the part of me of which I am least aware most of the time.
Madeleine L’Engle
Everyday’s a battle against; everyday’s a fight for. Everyday is collaged with shadows cast in everyday’s sunrise. Everyday is a new chance.
Debby Ryan
In truth, everything and everyone
is a shadow of the Beloved.
Wherever there is light, there is shadow; wherever there is length, there is shortness; wherever there is white, there is black. Just like these, as the self-nature of things can not exist alone, they are called non-substantial.
Gautama Buddha
Cam stepped into the clearing. His eyes were rimmed with a thick, shimmering gold shadow, and it shone on his face in the moonlight, making him look like a wildcat.
Lauren Kate
The ending of sorrow is the beginning of wisdom. Knowledge is always within the shadow of ignorance. Meditation is freedom from thought and a movement in the ecstasy of truth. Meditation is explosion of intelligence.
Jiddu Krishnamurti
None of you appreciate me. Why is it so hard to believe that I could make a real contribution in these dark rimes?
Richelle Mead
A door jumps out from shadows, then jumps away. This is what I’ve come to find: the back door, unlatched. Tooled by insular wind, it slams and slams without meaning to and without meaning.
Li-Young Lee
Men-kind shared this world for but a blink, then, sadly, they became enlightened, found science and religion. The new world of men left little room for magic or the magical creatures of old. Earth’s first children were driven into the shadows by flame and cold iron, by man’s insatiable need of conquest.
The first light had cast the first shadow.
Grant Morrison
Manipulating shadows and tonality is like writing music or a poem.
Conrad Hall
When ‘The Shadow of the Wind’ became a success I had already been a working writer, I’d been through the ups and downs, I’d seen how it worked.
Carlos Ruiz Zafon
The shadow banking sector has played an important role in cleaning up toxic assets.
Anshu Jain
Not many people like him, he’s an angry man. He’d go after his own shadow.
Stephen Hunt
And I will show you something different from either Your shadow at morning striding behind you Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you I will show you fear in a handful of dust
T. S. Eliot
I believe in the invisible. I do not believe in the definitive reality of things around us. For me, reality is the intuition and the imagination and the quiet voice inside my head that says: isn’t that extraordinary? The things in our lives are the shadows of reality, just as we ourselves are shadows.
Duane Michals
I do not say think as I think, but think in my way. Fear no shadows, least of all in that great spectre of personal unhappiness which binds half the world to orthodoxy.
Thomas Huxley
I have stared into the light and you are all my shadows.
Mike Carey
Men nowhere, east or west, live yet a natural life, round which the vine clings, and which the elm willingly shadows. Man would desecrate it by his touch, and so the beauty of the world remains veiled to him. He needs not only to be spiritualized, but naturalized, on the soil of earth.
Henry David Thoreau
Mind precedes all phenomena, mind matters most, everything is mind-made. If with an impure mind, you speak or act, then suffering follows you as the cartwheel follows the foot of the draft animal. If with a pure mind, you speak or act, then happiness follows you as a shadow that never departs
Gautama Buddha
I will be a man among men; and no longer a dreamer among shadows. Henceforth be mine a life of action and reality! I will work in my own sphere, nor wish it other than it is. This alone is health and happiness.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition.
Rod Serling
A shadow of a reflection of an image of an illusion.
Chuck Palahniuk
This is the story of the curse and the kiss, the demon and the girl. It’s a love story with dancing and death in it, and singing and souls and shadows reeled out on kite strings.
Laini Taylor
As phantoms frighten beasts when shadows fall.
Dante Alighieri
To-day is the parent of to-morrow. The present casts its shadow far into the future.
Emma Goldman
The interesting thing about my character Sylar is that my strengths as an actor seemed to go completely against the shape of a character in the shadow.
Zachary Quinto
Below us the Thames grew lighter, and all around below were the shadows – the dark shadows of buildings and bridges that formed the base of this dreadful masterpiece.
Ernie Pyle
Visit the Navy-Yard, and behold a marine, such a man as an American government can make, or such as it can make a man with its black arts – a mere shadow and reminiscence of humanity, a man laid out alive and standing, and already, as one may say, buried under arms with funeral accompaniments.
Henry David Thoreau
Fear was there, too, cold and hot at the same time, making everything in the plain room sharper, with fewer shadows.
Allison Brennan
The State has no more existence than gods and devils have. They are equally the reflex and creation of man, for man, the individual, is the only reality. The State is but the shadow of man, the shadow of his opaqueness, of his ignorance and fear.
Emma Goldman
We have been reformulating anything that had carmine in the past, and if we can’t reformulate, we just throw them out. I can live without a purple eye shadow. It’s fine.
Kat Von D
Alice and I, we’d met before, but we were able to kind of sit and chat on the set of Dark Shadows, and talk about maybe writing some songs together. We started doing that, and then one thing led to another and it became this Vampire project – because he was telling stories about all those days, which were fascinating.
Johnny Depp
And whiter grows the foam, The small moon lightens more; And as I turn me home, My shadow walks before.
Robert Bridges
That which we call substance and reality is shadow and illusion, and that which we call shadow and illusion is substance and reality.
H. P. Lovecraft
Getting out from under the shadow of Henry Fonda was difficult.
Peter Fonda
At times God puts us through the discipline of darkness to teach us to heed Him. Song birds are taught to sing in the dark, and we are put into the shadow of God’s hand until we learn to hear Him.
Oswald Chambers
Love is sunshine, hate is shadow,
Life is checkered shade and sunshine.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Half our days we pass in the shadow of the earth; and the brother of death exacteth a third part of our lives.
Thomas Browne
Yet I pity the poor wretch, though he’s my enemy. He’s yoked to an evil delusion, but the same fate could be mine. I see clearly: we who live are all phantoms, fleeing shadows.
The sun got confused about daylight savings time. It rose twice. Everything had two shadows.
Steven Wright
To David Lynch, any film or television show should be life casting a shadow.
Mark Frost
I don’t recommend shadow travel if you’re scared of: a) The dark b) Cold shivers up your spine c) Strange noises d) Going so fast you feel like your face is peeling off In other words, I thought it was awesome.
Rick Riordan
Can’t repeat the past?” he cried incredulously. “Why of course you can!” He looked around him wildly, as if the past were lurking here in the shadow of his house, just out of reach of his hand.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Without the past to cast its long shadow, might you see the future more clearly?
Diane Setterfield
If immigration reform passes, it’ll be a big victory for sanity – nobody really believes it’s healthy for a country to have millions and millions of undocumented noncitizens living in the shadows. But it’ll also be a sign that the Republican Party has gotten tired of letting the Tea Party push it around.
Gail Collins
Escapology has one thing going for it that probably made Harry Houdini such a superstar in his day and a legend in the present. Everyone wants to escape from something. Taxes, contracts, illness, work, the multitude of burdens that we chafe under are shadows from which we want to escape.
James Randi
With some CGI, I think the brain slightly perceives that things aren’t real. There’s no gravity, the light’s not quite real, the shadows aren’t quite real.
Nick Park
Dragons old and young, true and false, bright and dark. And you. A small man with a big shadow, snarling in the midst of all.
George R. R. Martin
For all things are baptized at the font of eternity, and beyond good and evil; good and evil themselves, however, are but intervening shadows and damp afflictions and passing clouds.
Friedrich Nietzsche
To the untrue man, the whole universe is false- it is impalpable- it shrinks to nothing within his grasp. And he himself is in so far as he shows himself in a false light, becomes a shadow, or, indeed, ceases to exist.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
Shadow work is the path of the heart warrior.
Carl Jung
You don’t get to cut that chain of evidence and start over. You’re always going to be pursued by your data shadow, which is forming from thousands and thousands of little leaks and tributaries of information.
Bruce Sterling
When I wrote ‘The Shadow Thief,’ I had an obsession with Peter Pan. I get focused on things. In fact, I was an absolute horror to live with at that stage. I had a big fight with my mum because I wanted her to change the windows so Peter Pan could visit me.
Alexandra Adornetto
Skylark,Have you seen a valley green with SpringWhere my heart can go a-journeying,Over the shadows in the rainTo a blossom covered lane?And in your lonely flight,Haven’t you heard the music in the night,Wonderful music,Faint as a will-o-the-wisp,Crazy as a loon,Sad as a gypsy serenading the moon.
Johnny Mercer
Character is the tree, reputation is the shadow.
Abraham Lincoln
Shadow-making happens in families and makes us who we are. It leads to shadow-work, which makes us who we can become.
Connie Zweig
Perhaps there are other bits of my life that would take on content, take on shadow, if only I read more and thought less about money.
Martin Amis
Venice seemed incredibly lovely, elvishly lovely–to me like a dream of Old Gondor, or Pelargir of the Numenorean Ships, before the return of the Shadow.
J. R. R. Tolkien
The painter tries to catch the magic of the lights and shadows and passing graces of the human face he paints, but he never wholly succeeds in overtaking the reality.
John Edgar Park
I think a lot of people vote in fear. People like Donald Trump are good at casting this shadow of fear over people, making them believe if they don’t vote for him then the terrorists are going to get them or whatever. All his ways are to scare people to vote for him. It’s so sad.
Jim James
Life was so short that it meant nothing at all unless it were continually reinforced by something that endured; unless the shadows of individual existence came and went against a background that held together.
Willa Cather
Shadows of a thousand years rise again unseen, Voices whisper in the trees, “Tonight is Halloween!”
Dexter Kozen
Poetry is my understanding with the world, my intimacy with things, my participation in what is real, my engagement with voices and images. This is why a poem speaks not of ideal life but of actual life: the angle of a window; the reverberation of streets, cities, rooms; shadows along a wall.
Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen
Liza is in the tabloids almost as much as our mother was. She has struggled with her own ghosts and shadows.
Lorna Luft
I made films, like ‘Shadow of the Vampire,’ and I did not like the work I did on it and then Willem Dafoe was nominated for the Oscar. I made films like ‘The Adventures of Pinocchio’ with Martin Landau. I thought I would get nominated and it flopped. You never know.
Udo Kier
Longevity is something I never gave a second thought to. I guess it’s the shadow of growing up in post WWII, but I never believed I would live past 20. Here I am though… a senior citizen… my voice and heart are stronger than ever, but boredom is the greatest enemy so I have to be careful not to slip over the edge.
Eric Burdon
I am half-sick of shadows,’ said The Lady of Shalott.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
Your identity is like your shadow: not always visible and yet always present.
Fausto Cercignani
Trust arises from the mind’s instinctive feeling after fixed realities, after the substance of every shadow, the base of all appearance, the everlasting amid change.
James Martineau
There is a better place, the hard but joyful work beyond struggle, beyond the shadow of a doubt. It is our real home, the long-remembered future when everything worked and things made sense.
Marilyn Ferguson
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; on those who lived in a land of deep shadow a light has shone. For the yoke that was weighing upon them and the burden upon their shoulders, thou hast broken in pieces O God.
As long as death exists, men will continue to exist only as a shadow, not a real thing!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
I am about as detailed as a shadow.
Lynda Barry
I read anything I could get my hands on: science fiction, fantasy, horror, thrillers. I even became hooked on the Bantam reprints of the old pulp novels from thirties and forties: Doc Savage, The Shadow, The Avenger.
James Rollins
Beyond all our actions stands the larger shadow: How are we to choose between what we have been taught to think right and something else which manifestly succeeds?
Jacob Bronowski
Entranced by the flight of a raven, I watch its shadow move effortlessly against golden, shimmering granite. I long to be that free, flying above the cluttered world of normalcy, where so many are half alive.
Dean Potter
You cannot pass,” he said. The orcs stood still, and a dead silence fell. “I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. You cannot pass. The dark fire will not avail you, flame of UdГ»n. Go back to the Shadow! You cannot pass.
J. R. R. Tolkien
Let the word and the legend go before you. Let the world go before you. Let your shadow grow. Let it grow hair on its face. Let it become dark. Given time, words may even enchant an enchanter.
Stephen King
There is a town in north Ontario,
With dream comfort memory to spare,
And in my mind
I still need a place to go,
All my changes were there.
Blue, blue windows behind the stars,
Yellow moon on the rise,
Big birds flying across the sky,
Throwing shadows on our eyes.
Neil Young
I follow, always, because its the only time when our hearts beat in perfect harmony, the only time when Im certain, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that we are one person broken in two.
Jackson Pearce
As paradoxical as it may seem a great sculptor is as much a colourist as the best painter, or rather the best engraver. He plays so skillfully with all the resources of relief, he blends so well the boldness of light with the modesty of shadow, that his sculptures please one, as much as the most charming etchings.
Auguste Rodin
Between the vision and the act lies the shadow.
T. S. Eliot
The effect of music is so very much more powerful and penetrating than is that of the other arts, for these others speak only of the shadow, but music of the essence.
Arthur Schopenhauer
The purpose of all opprobrious language is, not to describe, but to hurt – even when, like Hamlet, we make only the shadow-passes of a soliloquised combat. We call the enemy not what we think he is but what we think he would least like to be called.
C. S. Lewis
Suddenly I’m not half the girl
I used to be.
There’s a shadow hanging over me . . .
From me to you out of my electric devil.
Anne Sexton
I view it as one of the greatest crimes to shadow the minds of the young with these gloomy superstitions, and with fears of the unknown and the unknowable to poison all their joy in life.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Like the way the sun is right now, with the long shadows, and that kind of bright, soft light you get when the sun isn’t quite setting? That’s the light that makes everything better, everything prettier, and today, everything just seemed to be in that light.
John Green
The thing is, you don’t get to know. It’s not like you wake up with a bad feeling in your stomach. You don’t see shadows where there shouldn’t be any. You don’t remember to tell your parents you love them or–in my case–remember to say good-bye to them at all.
Lauren Oliver
Paint your picture by means of the lights. Lights define texture and color – shadows define form.
Howard Pyle
For the bliss of the animals lies in this, that, on their lower level, they shadow the bliss of those–few at any moment on the earth–who do not ‘look before and after, and pine for what is not,’ but live in the holy carelessness of the eternal now.
George MacDonald
Seek happiness for its own sake, and you will not find it; seek for duty, and happiness will follow as the shadow comes with the sunshine.
Tryon Edwards
I’m being followed by a moon shadow
Leaping and hopping on a moon shadow…
Did it take long to find me, I asked the faithful light
…and are you going to stay the night?
Cat Stevens
I always think of shade as being full of light. That is why I like to use the word shade rather than light and shadow. Shade seems to play over the thing, envelop it, better define it, while shadow seems to fall on the thing and stain the surface with darks.
John French Sloan
The shadows of twilight grow,
And the tiger’s ancient fierceness
In my veins begins to flow.
William Wetmore Story
There are instances when we are like horses, we psychologists, and grow restless: we see our own shadow wavering up and down before us. A psychologist must look away from himself in order to see anything at all.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Manners are the shadows of virtues; the momentary display of those qualities which our fellow creatures love, and respect.
Sydney Smith
I was the shadow of the waxwing slain/By the false azure in the windowpane.
Vladimir Nabokov
A human being is only breath and shadow.
One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.
Carl Jung
…a cheerful black shadow reared up behind him as he spoke, thundering a happy challenge to my Dark Passenger, which slid forward and bellowed back.
Jeff Lindsay
A man is whole only when he takes into account his shadow.
Djuna Barnes
… the world can give you these glimpses as well as fairy tales can–the smell of rain, the dazzle of sun on white clapboard with the shadows of ferns and wash on the line, the wildness of a winter storm when in the house the flame of a candle doesn’t even flicker.
Frederick Buechner
There is much more mystery in the shadow of a man walking on a sunny day, than in all religions of the world.
Giorgio de Chirico
I set off, off to kill the man I love.
Richelle Mead
The survivors of Hurricane Harvey do not need empty tweets and platitudes from people like Donald Trump and Joel Osteen. They have shown beyond a shadow of a doubt that, as we say in Texas, they are all hat and no cattle.
Anthea Butler
My first black-on-black picture was ‘The Portrait of an Artist as a Shadow of His Former Self.’ I started using it as an emblem of this undercurrent of wickedness, malevolence, and irony – all of that.
Kerry James Marshall
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of trauma, I will fear no concussion.
Jim Butcher
Be born anywhere, little embryo novelist, but do not be born under the shadow of a great creed, not under the burden of original sin, not under the doom of Salvation.
Pearl S. Buck
The dark does not destroy the light; it defines it. It’s our fear of the dark that casts our joy into the shadows.
BrenГ© Brown
In Heaven there is no need for sex because there is no need for a shadow or illustration-just a need to enjoy it!
David Berg
Even now, sometimes on street corners… when I meet someone, I see your shadow. I’m sure that even now, you’re still wearing that man’s cologne… so you can sleep, even alone.
Ai Yazawa
Ceremony leads her bigots forth, prepared to fight for shadows of no worth. While truths, on which eternal things depend, can hardly find a single friend.
William Cowper
Light is but the shadow of God.
Thomas Browne
If it’s time to party, it’s time for hip hop. I love Drake, Jay-Z, Kanye. If I’m chilling at home though, I’m listening to Massive Attack, Thievery Corporation, Radiohead, DJ Shadow. I also listen to a lot of classical.
Alexis Knapp
I have been sitting watching that ever since I came back, the continuous variations of light and shadow.
Laurie Lee
Some people seemed to get all sunshine, and some all shadow.
Louisa May Alcott
I’m not interested in the texture of a rock, but in its shadow.
Ellsworth Kelly
Magic of the shadows can best be seen in the deserts.
Mehmet Murat Ildan
A mortgage casts a shadow on the sunniest field.
Robert Green Ingersoll
Red like blood White like bone Red like solitude White like silence Red like the beastly instinct White like a god’s heart Red like thawing hatred White like a frozen, pained cry Red like the night’s hungry shadows Like a sigh piercing the moon it shines white and shatters red
Tite Kubo
No, we don’t walk away. But when we’re holding on to something precious, we run. We run and run, fast as we can, and we don’t stop running until we are out from under the shadow.
Neil Cross
It is better to follow even the shadow of the best, than to remain content with the worst.
Henry Van Dyke
Fear is the lengthened shadow of ignorance.
Arnold H. Glasow
Those you love leave behind their shadows to walk, always, with you in the form of memories.
Helen Hollick
You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension: a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You’re moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You’ve just crossed over into… the Twilight Zone.
Rod Serling
It is my belief no man ever understands quite his own artful dodges to escape from the grim shadow of self knowledge.
Joseph Conrad
The shadow had followed behind them, clinging to their steps; and the two children little suspected its presence when they at last sat down, trustingly, under the mighty protection of Apollo, who, with a great bronze gesture, lifted his huge lyre to the heart of a crimson sky.
Gaston Leroux
Once you’re a mom, you’ve been split into two people. It’s like Peter Pan and his shadow.
Emma Thompson
I was comparatively late in understanding Bob Dylan’s overwhelming importance as a songwriter. Everybody who does my job exists in the shadow of Bob Dylan. There are two categories: Dylan and everybody else. It’s as simple as that. And it’s going to be that way until he dies.
Steve Earle
I feel all shadows of the universe multiplied deep inside my skin.
Virginia Woolf
Our love of each other was like two long shadows kissing without hope of reality.
Anais Nin
Interpretation is the revenge of the intellect upon art. Even more. It is the revenge of the intellect upon the world. To interpret is to impoverish, to deplete the world — in order to set up a shadow world of ”meanings.”
Susan Sontag
The black man has become a shell, a shadow of man, completely defeated, drowning in his own misery, a slave, an ox bearing the yoke of oppression with sheepish timidity.
Steven Biko
Babylon violated diminishes Alexander; Rome enslaved diminishes Caesar; massacred Jerusalem diminishes Titus. Tyranny follows the tyrant. Woe to the man who leaves behind a shadow that bears his form.
Victor Hugo
When you think of the sacrifices our firefighters make, think about the service of soldiers in foreign lands and listen to their lives, you have to be careful that whatever you do, don’t cast a shadow on what these great people do.
Jim Brown
somethings can only be seen in the shadows
Carlos Ruiz Zafon
This life is a shadowy thing, lad. We live in a crowded space of lights and shadows, and when left to ourselves, we all too often fail to see the brightest light of all.
James Michael
Look, up at the sky. There is a light, a beauty up there, that no shadow can touch
J. R. R. Tolkien
I would never be happy with just coming to TV tapings, not working house shows, and just getting by, staying in the shadows. I’m proud of the fact that I can turn chickenshit to chicken salad.
CM Punk
She was elusive. She was today. She was tomorrow. She was the faintest scent of a cactus flower, the flitting shadow of an elf owl. We did not know what to make of her. In our minds we tried to pin her to a cork board like a butterfly, but the pin merely went through and away she flew.
Jerry Spinelli
Chaykin’s Shadow is a modern legend at his best.
Rick Remender
Contrary to Warhol’s 15 minutes of fame, I think that today in front of insatiable curiosity of the crowd, we would be better off to remain secret as long as possible, work in the denser part of shadows.
Daniel Buren
We are born for a higher destiny than that of earth; there is a realm where the rainbow never fades, where the stars will be spread before us like islands that slumber on the ocean, and where the beings that pass before us like shadows will stay in our presence forever.
Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Everything that we see is a shadow cast by that which we do not see.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
To them, I said, the truth would be literally nothing but the shadows of the images.
To forsake Christ for the world, is to leave a treasure for a trifle, eternity for a moment, reality for a shadow
William Jenkyn
Illusions are shadows moving endlessly across the ground. The shadows are quite real but they’re shadows. They have very little substance.
Frederick Lenz
Everything I do is gauged under the shadow of ‘Dil Chahta Hai.’ Even ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ and ‘Rock On,’ which are very urban films. So I am always seen through that lens.
Farhan Akhtar
Religion has been a curse on the world and humanity will never know freedom until this curse has been exorcised. It is the curse of ignorance, which has cast its dark shadow over thousands of years of human suppression.
David Icke
Many places in the Bronx seem hidden in shadows, just as the Bronx itself is in Manhattan’s shadow. And dark stories develop best in dark shadows.
S. J. Rozan
Pressed, I would define spirituality as the shadow of light humanity casts as it moves through the darkness of everything that can be explained.
John Updike
Looks can’t hide your true identity. It’s the eyes that give you away…the soul behind them. The intent. The Shadows.
Vicki Pettersson
Vast and deep the mountain shadows grew.
Samuel Rogers
Alas, poor men, their destiny. When all goes well a shadow will overthrow it. If it be unkind one stroke of a wet sponge wipes all the picture out.
The Rock is, without a shadow of a doubt, the most electrifying man in sports entertainment today.
Dwayne Johnson
But injustice breeds injustice; the fighting with shadows and being defeated by them necessitates the setting up of substances to combat.
Charles Dickens
Do not let the fame come near to you! Protect your freedom! Fame must be avoided so as to breathe freely! Stay in the shadow to work comfortably! Away from the crowds, in the heart of calmness, there is wonderful peace of mind that no fame can ever give you!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
Todd Palin’s frequent presence in the governor’s office led some in Juneau to call him the ‘Shadow Governor.’ But it had never been clear, at least to the public, what roles he played.
Bill Dedman
Church of Jesus, let us please be men and women who understand the difference between moralism and the gospel of Jesus Christ. Let’s be careful to preach the dos and don’ts of Scripture in the shadow of the cross’s ‘Done!’
Matt Chandler
Art is a shadow of Divine perfection.
There is strong shadow where there is much light.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I watched her and I watched the birds’ shadows flit across her face, and I…wanted. I wanted more happy memories to hang up on the ceiling, so many happy memories with this girl that they would crowd the ceiling and flap out into the hall and burst out of the house.
Maggie Stiefvater
So with Easter. It was fun, as a child, to bound down the stairs to find seasonal sweet-treats under each plate, but again, with the passing of time, and the shadow of death over our broken family circle, I’ve seen Easter as highest necessity. If hope is to flourish, it had better be true.
Gerhard E Frost
You missed the shadow of the hawk on the vole if you think how wonderfully free a vole is!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
We built our fashion around three fundamental concepts: Sicily, tailoring, and tradition. Our dream is to create a style which is timeless, and to create clothes with such a strong personality that whoever sees them can instantly say without a shadow of a doubt: this is a Dolce & Gabbana.
Domenico Dolce
Where there is much light, the shadows are deepest.
[Ger., Wo viel Licht is, ist starker Schatten.]
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
We think not in words but in shadows of words.
Vladimir Nabokov
Your shadow will always release whatever overshadows you
Bill Johnson
And all times are one time, and all those dead in the past never lived before our definition gives them life, and out of the shadow their eyes implore us. That is what all of us historical researchers believe. And we love truth.
Robert Penn Warren
I make a composition with a white and a black, and make adjustments when the white has become a paper and the black a shadow.
Juan Gris
How far have we come in man’s long pilgrimage from darkness toward light? Are we nearing the light-a day of freedom and of peace for all mankind? Or are the shadows of another night closing in upon us?
Dwight D. Eisenhower
A person’s shadow stood for his legacy, his impact on the world. Some people cast hardly any shadow at all. Some cast long, deep shadows that endured for centuries.
Rick Riordan
If I am elected leader, my shadow opposition team will actively incorporate the policy contributions of all our members by instituting policy action committees as recommend by the 2010 National Review.
Bill Shorten
My view of AMD is that we have a tremendous set of technology assets, people, capability, customer relationships. We’re not going to define ourselves in somebody else’s shadow.
Lisa Su
Between the conception and the creation, between the emotion and the response, Falls the shadow.
T. S. Eliot
The whole shadow of Man is only as big as his hat.
Elizabeth Bishop
Satre found atheism ‘cruel’, Camus ‘dreadful’, and Nietzsche ‘maddening’. Atheists who consistently try to live without God tend to commit suicide or go insane. Those who are inconsistent live on the ethical or aesthetic shadow of Christian truth while they deny the reality that made the shadow.
Norman Geisler
I am: yet what I am none cares or knows, My friends forsake me like a memory lost; I am the self-consumer of my woes, They rise and vanish in oblivious host, Like shades in love and death’s oblivion lost; And yet I am, and live with shadows tost.
John Clare
The knowledge of Christ is profound and large. All other sciences are but shadows; this is a boundless, bottomless ocean. Though something of Christ be unfolded in one age, and something in another, yet eternity itself cannot full unfold him.
John Flavel
Where doubt there truth is – ’tis her shadow.
Philip James Bailey
The dark shadow we seem to see in the distance is not really a mountain ahead, but the shadow of the mountain behind – a shadow from the past thrown forward into our future. It is a dark sludge of historical sectarianism. We can leave it behind us if we wish.
David Trimble
A way you can get really good abs in film is you get your makeup artist to paint shadows – faux washboard. But if you see me in a movie and I have great abs, it means I have a great body double.
Jennifer Tilly
My shadow serves as the friend I crave
Anna Akhmatova
I like to help others and count it as my greatest pleasure in life to see a person free himself of the shadows which darken his days.
L. Ron Hubbard
We stand in the shadow of Jefferson who believed that a society founded upon the rule of law and liberty was dependent upon public education and the diffusion of knowledge.
Matt Blunt
Something in me vibrates to a dusky, dreamy smell of dying moons and shadows.
Zelda Fitzgerald
Like a shadow that does not permit us to jump over it, but moves with us to maintain its proper distance, pollution is nature’s answer to culture. When we have learned to recycle pollution into potent information, we will have passed over completely into the new cultural ecology.
William Irwin Thompson
The shadows are deepening all around us. Now is the time when we must begin to see our world and ourselves in a different way.
Madeleine L’Engle
Originally, the lyrics to “Girl” were really upbeat, and then it didn’t work for me somehow. You need the dichotomy. If you’re doing something happy and light, you need the shadows.
Now God comes to thee, not as in the dawning of the day, not as in the bud of the spring, but as the sun at noon to illustrate all shadows, as the sheaves in harvest, to fill all penuries, all occasions invite his mercies, and all times are his seasons.
John Donne
A false friend and a shadow attend only while the sun shines.
Benjamin Franklin
Reclaiming the parts of ourselves that we have relegated to the shadow is the most reliable path to actualizing all of our human potential.
Debbie Ford
Ill often rush out from Dark Shadows, having made a 5.30PM appointment, working for a couple of hours.
Thayer David
Life is wonderful, so revel in its beauty. Be all you can be, and let go of the past. It is nothing but shadows.
David Clement-Davies
During that long terrible ride to Munich, I finally swallowed the bitter pill of my lover’s rejection and poisoned myself with it. I murdered the personality I was born with and transformed myself from a butterfly back in into a caterpillar. That night I learned to seek the shadows, to prefer silence
Edith Hahn Beer
You’re my flame in the dark. We chase away the shadows around each other.
Richelle Mead
We are constantly telling ourselves what we most want to know, and at the same time are deaf to it. Why does envy have such a fierce bite? Why do we fall silent or get worried just as our story is about to spring out of our control and into its own life? Whose shadow falls across the page?
Bonnie Friedman
I want to create the largest-ever participatory art project and highlight the concept of Shadow Philanthropy, where people help others create work without taking credit for it – through this we can really change the world.
The time has arrived in America for the Democratic Party to get out of the shadows of states rights and walk forthrightly into the bright sunshine of human rights
Hubert H. Humphrey
Shadow owes its birth to light.
John Gay
The likeness of the world? A shadow! And world’s glory? A dream!
Franz Grillparzer
Your shadow stealthily leaves nothing of where you go, like a poisoned needle that sews together my footsteps. Your light pliantly strikes the water tower, like a lightning bolt that severs the source of my life. -Soifon
Tite Kubo
Men are the dreams of a shadow.
Have Hope. Though clouds environs now, And gladness hides her face in scorn, Put thou the shadow from thy brow, – No night but hath its morn.
Friedrich Schiller
The American administration is trying to achieve any gain in the shadow of the embarrassment hitting it because of its failures in Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine after the failure of Israel’s war on Lebanon and the retreat of America’s project in the region.
Mohammad Hussein Fadlallah
You can make yourself feel better about yourself if you project your shadow side, if you project your own potential for evil onto someone else. By annihilating them and, therefore, your shadow, you bring yourself into some state of purity or reformation.
Jennifer Beals
The Jungian therapist taught me the difference between the ego and the shadow. I realized I’d been so busy being a good girl that I’d completely detached from my shadow. It’s something we all have, and it’s where all the creative juices are.
Sue Grafton
The shadows: some hide, others reveal.
Antonio Porchia
The world is in balance . To light a candle is to cast a shadow.
Ursula K. Le Guin
Art is an act of the soul, not the intellect. When we are dealing with people’s dreams – their visions, really – we are in the realm of the sacred. We are involved with forces and energies larger than our own. We are engaged in a sacred transaction of which we know only a little: the shadow, not the shape.
Julia Cameron
The picture of a shadow is a positive thing.
John Locke
Rightly conceived, time is the friend of all who are in any way in adversity, for its mazy road winds in and out of the shadows sooner or later into sunshine, and when one is at its darkest point one can be certain that presently it will grow brighte.
Arthur Bryant
Probably the happiest period in life most frequently is in middle age, when the eager passions of youth are cooled, and the infirmities of age not yet begun; as we see that the shadows, which are at morning and evening so large, almost entirely disappear at midday.
Eleanor Roosevelt
For the longest time, I was trying to be DJ Shadow, I think. But I slowly developed my own style. It was trial and error, for sure.
Washed Out
There stands the shadow of a glorious name.
Well, in Angel of Hope, Amber ends up going in her sister’s stead. The focus of that book and the next one coming out, Angel of Love, is how she finds her way out of her sister’s shadow and into herself. That’s really what those two novels are based on.
Lurlene McDaniel
Character is like a tree, and reputation is like its shadow.
Abraham Lincoln
The web of influence which News Corporation spun in Britain, which effectively bent politicians, police and many others in public life to its will, amounted to a shadow state.
Thomas Watson, Jr.
Evil is a source of moral intelligence in the sense that we need to learn from our shadow, from our dark side, in order to be good.
John Bradshaw
Weak Christians are afraid of the shadow of the cross.
Thomas Brooks
There is no life and there is no death. Life and death are moving shadows cast upon the ground by clouds that sweep across the sky.
Frederick Lenz
I am a champion standing over the shadow of my former self.
Adam Johnson
Love that ends is the shadow of love; true love is without beginning or end.
Hazrat Inayat Khan
We are linked by our shadows, not by our light.
Jun Mochizuki
… I began showing the black border of the negative as part of the image, something I’d never done before. I began to realize that the edge of the negative represents the shadow of the camera, the opaqueness of matter. It casts a shadow on the negative, so it’s a photogram as well.
James Welling
I think there is a sense of being forced at this time to look at America’s really large shadow and that’s not all that bad.
Alice Walker
Every man ought to be inquisitive through every hour of his great adventure down to the day when he shall no longer cast a shadow in the sun. For if he dies without a question in his heart, what excuse is there for his continuance?
Frank Moore Colby
I am no longer alone with myself, and I can only artificially recall the scary and beautiful feeling of solitude. This is the shadow side of the fortune of love.
Carl Jung
Last night, ah, yesternight, betwixt her lips and mine
There fell thy shadow, Cynara! thy breath was shed
Upon my soul between the kisses and the wine;
And I was desolate and sick of an old passion,
Yea, I was desolate and bowed my head:
I have been faithful to thee, Cynara! in my fashion.
Ernest Dowson
I don’t need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better.
I don’t deserve your love or your shine, but I want it because with you I can feel the sun. I don’t want to go back to those shadows.
Maya Banks
A person without a shadow should keep out of the sun, that is the only safe and rational plan.
Adelbert von Chamisso
A background can be painted in the same range of values as the foreground by reversing the light effect. In the shadow plane, paint the lights cool and the shadows warm, and in the sunlight plane, paint the lights warm and shadows cool.
Harvey Dunn
Archimedes was my ideal. I admired the works of artists, but to my mind, they were only shadows and semblances. The inventor, I thought, gives to the world creations which are palpable, which live and work.
Nikola Tesla
The awful shadow of some unseen Power Floats, tho’ unseen, amongst us.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
I remember what it was like to grow up in the South in the 1960s and 1970s. Discrimination isn’t something that’s easy to oppose. It doesn’t always stare you in the face. It moves in the shadows. And sometimes it shrouds itself within the very laws meant to protect us.
Tim Cook
I’ve chosen opportunities where I might fail rather than live in the shadow of my own potential.
Reshma Saujani
Anyway, madness and genius. They’re the disturbed pals of the human condition. The Bonnie and Clyde, the Thelma and Louise, the baking soda and vinegar. Insanity just walks alongside the brilliant like some creepy, insistent shadow.
Deb Caletti
I sit cross-legged on the rock The valleys and streams are cold and damp Sitting quietly is beautiful The cliffs are lost in mist and fog I rest happily in this place At dusk the tree shadows are low I look into my mind A white lotus emerges from the dark mud
Death is a great revealer of what is in a man, and in its solemn shadow appear the naked lineaments of the soul.
Edwin Hubbel Chapin
It is equally vain,” she thought, “for you to think you can protect me, or for me to think I can worship you. The light of truth beats upon us without shadow, and the light of truth is damnably unbecoming to us both.
Virginia Woolf
I had the closest thing I have ever had to an out-of-body experience lying in bed one morning. I turned on the ‘Today’ programme and item four on the news was: ‘The shadow chancellor has ruled himself out of the leadership.’ I lay there thinking that’s interesting, then I realised it was me.
George Osborne
This life of separateness may be compared to a dream, a phantasm, a bubble, a shadow, a drop of dew, a flash of lightning.
Gautama Buddha
I see that all of us who live are nothing but images or insubstantial shadow.
One of the reasons I think Dark Shadows still runs is that it’s dependent on nothing else other than a story.
David Selby
Fearful leaders side-step issues instead of dealing with them, cover up mistakes instead of owning up to mistakes; they skulk back into the shadows and hope that the crisis-whatever it is-will somehow blow over instead of facing their fears. Worse, they resort to lies and deception to cover up the truth.
Leon F. “Lee” Ellis
It was a full moon and, shining on all the snow, it made everything almost as bright as day — only the shadows were rather confusing.
C. S. Lewis
We have to look at the substance of something rather than the shadow.
Bell Hooks
And if you are a rose, I am rose-shadow.
somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
William Butler Yeats
If God is not sending earthquakes, destroying economies and inflicting pain upon human beings, what is God doing? God works through people, calling them to help their neighbors in need. God comforts His people, walking with them even ‘through the valley of the shadow of death.’
Adam Hamilton
Hope is like the sun, which, as we journey toward it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us.
Samuel Smiles
Look round and round upon this bare bleak plain, and see even here, upon a winter’s day, how beautiful the shadows are! Alas! It is the nature of their kind to be so. The loveliest things in life… are but shadows; and they come and go, and change and fade away, as rapidly as these.
Charles Dickens
And Boucard desisted, probably because like everyone else he was deeply impressed by this man who had laid all ghosts, who had lost all shadows, and who stared you in the eyes with cold serenity.
Georges Simenon
Be careful whom you choose to hate. The small and the vulnerable own a protection great enough, if you could but see it, to melt you into jelly. Beware those who reside beneath the shadow of the Wings.
Leif Enger
I have a thousand images of you in an hour; all different and all coming back to the same. I think of you once against a sky line: and on the hill that Sunday morning. The light and the shadow and quietness and the rain and the wood. And you. Your arms and lips and hair and shoulders and voice – you.
Rupert Brooke
Be content to love, to dazzle in the light,
If only for moments…
And then be gone,
With gladness in your heart,
Before the creeping shadows
Claim too much your sadness at leaving.
Scott Hastie
I chose the shadows; they did not choose me. I stay here securely not just because I feel plain, but because disappearance is by now the easy way. The habit. The worn path that I can trod knowingly and be assured safe passage home.
Rod McKuen
When I was writing Shadow and Bone,’ I really had no confidence as a writer. I had never finished a book before and I desperately wanted to finish a book for the first time.
Leigh Bardugo
Nothing bubbled up from the depths. For once, the present was so alive and captivating that the past was not even an echo or a shadow-she was, in this moment, wiped clean.
J.R. Ward
… we see the poor as a mass of shadow, painted in one flat grey wash, at the remote edges of our sunshine.
Albion Fellows Bacon

One marvel of a day he had walked so far that when he returned the moon was high and full and all the world was purple shadow and silver.
Frances Hodgson Burnett
To be forgotten is to sleep in peace with the undisturbed myriads, no longer subject to the chills and heats, the blasts, the sleet, the dust, which assail in endless succession that shadow of a man which we call his reputation.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
Death is the only physician, the shadow of his valley the only journeying that will cure us of age and the gathering fatigue of years.
George Eliot
I have gone through the most terrible affair that could possibly happen; only imagine, my shadow has gone mad; I suppose such a poor, shallow brain, could not bear much; he fancies that he has become a real man, and that I am his shadow.
Hans Christian Andersen
I definitely was in the sequined, bedazzled era. We would put blue eye shadow up our eyebrows and glitter all over our faces. I probably put more effort into my skating outfits than my clothes.
Rachel McAdams
the fire seven times tried this; seven times tried that judgement is that did never choose amiss some there be that shadows kiss; such have but a shadows bliss, there be fool alive, i wis silverd o’er, and so was this Take what wife you will to bed I will ever be your head. So be gone; you are sped.
William Shakespeare
God, she was beautiful – my first image of the Orient – a woman such as only the desert poet knew how to praise: her face was the sun, her hair the protecting shadow, her eyes fountains of cool water, her body the most slender of palm-trees and her smile a mirage.
Amin Maalouf
You can get this feeling of the English or Scottish or Irish or Welsh fairy, but it is by nature very elusive. It would be possible to pin down a German fairy, but the English one just vanishes, becomes the shadow under the trees.
Susanna Clarke
Beauty deprived of its proper foils and adjuncts ceases to be enjoyed as beauty, just as light deprived of all shadows ceases to be enjoyed as light.
John Ruskin
We went into darkness after being in daylight the whole time on the way to the Moon. And then we went into darkness. And we’re in the shadow… of the Moon.
Gene Cernan
I took her hand in mine, and we went out of the ruined place; and, as the morning mists had risen long ago when I first left the forge, so, the evening mists were rising now, and in all the broad expanse of tranquil light they showed to me, I saw no shadow of another parting from her.
Charles Dickens
I think the healthy way to live is to make friends with the beast inside oneself, and that means not the beast but the shadow. The dark side of one’s nature. Have fun with it and you know, is to accept everything about ourselves.
Anthony Hopkins
A flatterer is the shadow of a fool.
Thomas Overbury
To sacrifice the moral to the physical, as is done in these days, is to sacrifice reality for a shadow.
African Spir
In this world, whenever there is light, there are also shadows. As long as the concept of winners exist, there must also be losers. The selfish desire of wanting to maintain peace causes wars and hatred is born to protect love.
Masashi Kishimoto
Trump has humbled our country under the shadow of China’s autocrat Xi Jinping.
Joy Reid
A child knows when they are on the receiving end of a didactic exercise, or when they are sitting in the shadow of something else.
Tim Crouch
Probably the one Bible passage that is read by Jews and Roman Catholics, Protestants, Islam, more than any other chapter is Psalm 23. And in Psalm 23 there is a verse that says, ‘Surely, yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil.’
Robert H. Schuller
When it comes to our integrity: one moment in a dark place can cast a shadow for a lifetime.
Steven Furtick
The gloom of the world is but a shadow. Behind it, yet within our reach is joy. There is radiance and glory in the darkness could we but see – and to see we have only to look.
Giovanni Giocondo
Like their personal lives, women’s history is fragmented, interrupted; a shadow history of human beings whose existence has been shaped by the efforts and the demands of others.
Elizabeth Janeway
Rand Paul does not like being compared to his father Ron any more than sons named Bush like to dance in their father’s shadow, but the crucial difference is that while the Bushes all hail from the relative mainstream of the GOP, the Pauls have an ideological tributary virtually to themselves.
Nancy Gibbs
If you don’t have any shadows, you’re not standing in the light.
Lady Gaga
I decided long ago never to walk in anyone’s shadow; if I fail, or if I succeed at least I did as I believe.
Whitney Houston
I didn’t want to go to Golden State. I didn’t want to go back in Steph’s shadow.
Seth Curry
Do you dislike your role in the story, your place in the shadow? What complaints do you have that the hobbits could not have heaved at Tolkien? You have been born into a narrative, you have been given freedom. Act, and act well until you reach your final scene.
N.D. Wilson
Live Freaky! Die Freaky! will be, without a shadow of a doubt, the single greatest film of all time about Charles Manson being the savior to all humanity in the year 3069.
John Roecker
No matter how many stones you throw at the water’s surface, no matter how much you step on a shadow, the water’s surface does not disappear, the shadow does not disappear.
Kohta Hirano
I would love to work with Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, B.B. King. I’d love to do something with Arctic Monkeys, Miles Kane, and The Last Shadow Puppets. If I got a call from Juliette Lewis or PJ Harvey, or Chrissie Hynde, that’d be a thrill.
Imelda May
Anger and just rebuke, and judgment given,
That brought into this world a world of woe,
Sin and her shadow Death, and Misery,
Death’s harbinger.

Maya Angelou
These greens are so fast I have to hold my putter over the ball and hit it with the shadow.
Sam Snead
I wasn’t crying about mothers,” he said rather indignantly. “I was crying because I can’t get my shadow to stick on. Besides, I wasn’t crying.
James M. Barrie
Fond man! the vision of a moment made! Dream of a dream! and shadow of a shade!
Edward Young
Hearts set about finding other hearts the moment they are born, and between them, they weave nets so frightfully strong and tight that you end up bound forever in hopeless knots, even to the shadow of a beast you knew and loved long ago.
Catherynne M. Valente
What is peculiar to modern societies is not that they consigned sex to a shadow existence, but that they dedicated themselves to speaking of it ad infinitum, while exploiting it as the secret.
Michel Foucault
It was a land of shadows and ice. Of gray. And grayer. And black. -The Unseelie prison of Aedan
Karen Marie Moning
I’ve seen George Foreman shadow boxing and the shadow won.
George Foreman
I saw Eternity the other night, Like a great ring of pure and endless light, All calm, as it was bright, And round beneath it, Time, in hours, days, years, Driven by the spheres, Like a vast shadow moved, in which the world And all her train were hurled.
Madeleine L’Engle
I really like ‘ICO’ and ‘Shadow of the Colossus.’

John M. Ford
Power resides only where men believe it resides. […] A shadow on the wall, yet shadows can kill. And ofttimes a very small man can cast a very large shadow.
George R. R. Martin
I like my shadow; it reminds me that I exist.
Mehmet Murat Ildan
What mattered to Abu was the music of the sentence. ‘A shadow does not belong to the object that casts it.’ To Abu, it was a little poem. And in general, it was the poetics, the music of things that tossed his confetti.
Tom Robbins
Translators are the shadow heroes of literature, the often forgotten instruments that make it possible for different cultures to talk to one another, who have enabled us to understand that we all, from every part of the world, live in one world.
Paul Auster
From behind the shadow of the still small voice — more awful than tempest or earthquake — more sure and persistent than day and night — is always sounding full of hope and strength to the weariest of us all, Be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.
Thomas Hughes
To abandon the present in order to look for things in the future is to throw away the substance and hold onto the shadow.
Nhat Hanh
I have spent a very long time in Cate’s shadow – she casts a pretty big one. I have always had the support of my family and coach, and they have always stressed we are completely different people and will achieve things in our own time. They stressed I would get my moment. I just had to be patient.
Bronte Campbell
For in and out, above, about, below, ‘Tis nothing but a Magic Shadow-show, Played in a Box whose Candle is the Sun, Round which we Phantom Figures come and go.
Omar Khayyam
What’s that thing you wrote about Simon once, that his eyes followed Baz ‘like he was the brightest thing in the room, like he cast everything else into shadow’? That’s you. You can’t look away from him.
Rainbow Rowell
If he thought at all, but I don’t believe he ever thought, it was that he and his shadow, when brought near each other, would join like drops of water.
James M. Barrie
Terrorism, like viruses, is everywhere. There is a global perfusion of terrorism, which accompanies any system of domination as though it were its shadow, ready to activate itself anywhere, like a double agent.
Jean Baudrillard
Jesus. Low-Key Lyesmith,” said Shadow. and then he heard what he was saying and he understood. “Loki,” he said. “Loki Lie-smith.” “You’re slow,” said Loki, “but you get there in the end.” And his lips twisted into a scarred smile and the embers danced in the shadows of his eyes.
Neil Gaiman
One of my earliest memories is being inside the recording studio and I see the shadow of a figure that looks an awful lot like Walt Disney. Then the door opened and Mr. Disney walked in and said, ‘Hi Clint.’ I won’t ever forget that.
Clint Howard
One important idea I hope is reflected in ‘The Poe Shadow’ is that fiction can add as much to history as nonfiction does.
Matthew Pearl
One thing is certain, that when you die and are resurrected you belong to the earth and whatever is of the earth is yours inalienably. You become an anomaly of nature, a being without shadow; you will never die again but only pass away like the phenomena about you.
Henry Miller
Go, forget me! why should sorrow
O’er that brow a shadow fling?
Go, forget me, and to-morrow
Brightly smile and sweetly sing!
Smile,—though I shall not be near thee;
Sing,—though I shall never hear thee!
Charles Wolfe
you may imagine me the very shadow of my husband.

What then had been of shadow made
Found exigence in fits and starts.

Men think to mend their condition by a change of circumstances. They might as well hope to escape from their shadows.
James Anthony Froude
Rahul is always been in the shadow of Sachin. If you take his record it’s as good as Sachin’s but you cannot compare both as they are different kind of players. Rahul is a complete cricketer.
Muttiah Muralitharan
Something feels weird,” he told Laura. That wasn’t the first thing he said to her. The first thing was “I love you,” because it’s a good thing to say if you can mean it, and Shadow did.
Neil Gaiman
There is something very sublime, though very fanciful, in Plato’s description of the Supreme Being,–that truth is His body and light His shadow. According to this definition there is nothing so contradictory to his nature as error and falsehood.
Joseph Addison
The shadow of my mother danced around the room to a tune that my own shadow sang.

Had stayed at home behind me and was fast asleep in bed.

Ray Wilkins
The danger of a rock band is repeating oneself. It’s our greatest fear – that it evolves into the myopia of a semi-successful band that’s in love with its own shadow.
Bryce Dessner
To read of human depravity in the police reports is one thing, to see it fall like a black shadow across one’s life is another.
William John Locke

Conor Oberst
We are all of us born, live and die in the shadow of a giant question mark that refers to three questions: Where do we come from? Why? And where, oh where, are we going!
Tennessee Williams
Although my grandmother lived out her long life in the shadow of Rainy Mountian, the immense landscape of the continental interior lay like memory in her blood
N. Scott Momaday
Behind the big names of twentieth-century literature there stands a shadow cabinet of writers waiting to take over once the Wind of Change has blown. My own vote goes to Hugh Kingsmill as leader of this opposition.
Hugh Kingsmill
I have no duty to be anyone’s Friend and no man in the world has a duty to be mine. No claims, no shadow of necessity. Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art, like the universe itself (for God did not need to create). It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.
C. S. Lewis
If they came sorrowing, and wanting sympathy in a complicated trouble like the present, then they would be felt as a shadow in all these houses of intimate acquaintances, not friends

A. N. Wilson
As for the Pope, I am too old to be frightened by his shadow, and am quite sure his shadow or Substance will do less harm to the liberties of my country than will a party, who seek to acquire political power by exciting religious bigotry in the minds of their duped followers.
Ezra Cornell
Human beings are good, they have shadow, every single one of us has redeeming qualities and every single one of us has qualities that people can hold against us. That’s what makes us human.
Matt Bomer
We learn that God IS; that he is in me; and that all things are shadows of him.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I think people would actually be surprised by what we put out. Unfortunately the shadow that the original founders cast was that they were just artists that can’t write books so people swept the whole of Image with that paintbrush.
Todd McFarlane

Robin Sharma

Alexander Graham Bell
You know, it’s no accident that the great painters came from areas like Europe where there is a lot of clouds and rain, which begets color and subtle washes of tone. Most great graphic artists come from areas with prevalent sun, where line and shadow are paramount.
Al Hirschfeld
Lord, it is time. The summer was very big. Lay thy shadow on the sundials, and on the meadows let the winds go loose. Command the last fruits that they shall be full; give them another two more southerly days, press them on to fulfillment and drive the last sweetiness into the heavenly wine.
Rainer Maria Rilke
Gordon Brown is a character from a tragic opera, twisted by ambition and a Presbyterian sense of fateful destiny. He has waited 13 years, mostly in Tony Blair’s shadow, for this poisoned chalice and has a pessimist’s luck.
A. A. Gill
I never want to lose the story-loving child within me, or the adolescent, or the young woman, or the middle-aged one, because all together they help me to be fully alive on this journey, and show me that I must be willing to go where it takes me, even through the valley of the shadow.
Madeleine L’Engle
I’m not a huge fan of eye shadow. You spend 20 minutes working on it and then make one mistake and have to remove it all! I’d rather play up my eyes with winged eyeliner.
Bethany Mota
I have always been afraid… Always been pretending to follow you closely, alwyas been pretending to sharpen my teeth, when the truth is, I am … scared to death just treading on your shadow.
Tite Kubo
The moon likes secrets,” Meran said. “And secret things. She lets mysteries bleed into her shadows and leaves us to ask whether they originated from otherworlds, or from our own imaginations.
Charles de Lint
Obsessions of the Orient, of the desert, of its ardor and its emptiness, of the shadows of palm gardens, of the garments white and wide – obsessions where the senses go berserk, where nerves are exasperated, and which made me, at the onset of each night, believe sleep impossible.
Andre Gide
Everybody compares, but I have never felt as if I have been in Li Na’s shadow. We both play for the same country. She is the best player in China.

Poverty made a sound like a wet cough in the shadows of the room.
Ray Bradbury
Eager souls, mystics and revolutionaries, may propose to refashion the world in accordance with their dreams; but evil remains, and so long as it lurks in the secret places of the heart, utopia is only the shadow of a dream
Nathaniel Hawthorne
A poor relation is the most irrelevant thing in nature, a piece of non pertinent correspondence, an odious approximation, a haunting conscience, a preposterous shadow, lengthening in the noontide of our prosperity.
Charles Lamb
My greatest affliction… is perhaps the major theme of my writings, the affliction of loneliness that follows me like a shadow, a very ponderous shadow too heavy to drag after me all of my days and nights.
Tennessee Williams
I don’t want to lose my memories. Don’t make me forget. I would rather die as Elena, than live as a shadow.
Nalini Singh
For those of us who live in the shadow of this noisy monster, there aren’t too many of us who are sorry to see it go.
Anthony Weiner
… Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me…
Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Race prejudice is not only a shadow over the colored it is a shadow over all of us, and the shadow is darkest over those who feel it least and allow its evil effects to go on.
Pearl S. Buck
The sunshine fails, the shadows grow more dreary,
And I am near to fall, infirm and weary.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If people speak or act with evil thoughts, pain follows them. If people speak or act with pure thoughts, happiness follows them, like a shadow that never leaves them.
Gautama Buddha
Life is composed of lights and shadows, and we would be untruthful, insincere, and saccharine if we tried to pretend there were no shadows.
Walt Disney

Intelligence is the shadow of objective truth. How can the shadow vie with sunshine?
The world is darkness; knowledge is light; but knowledge without truth is a mere shadow.
Ali ibn Abi Talib
It is still beautiful to hear the heart beat but often the shadow seems more real than the body.
Tomas Transtromer
The first total eclipse that I witnessed was in 1970. I was an amateur astronomer. But after I saw the total eclipse, it couldn’t be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, because it was too spectacular. I needed another eclipse fix, because I got hooked on the shadow.
Fred Espenak
Well there’s a line that you must toe and it’ll soon be time to go but it’s darker than you know in those Complicated Shadows
Elvis Costello
In 2016, HB 2 cast a dark shadow over our state. Not only was it wrong in and of itself, but it cost us jobs. It cost us money. And it cost us our reputation.
Roy Cooper
Who speaks of art speaks of poetry. There is not art without a poetic aim. There is a species of emotion particular to painting. There is an effect that results from a certain arrangement of colors, of lights, of shadows. It is this that one calls the music of painting
Edouard Vuillard
I would want my children to grow up and do what they wish to in a field that they choose to step in. They should not have to use the shadow of their father’s name. I think that is a bit of a downer for a movie star’s children.
Shahrukh Khan
A man who casts no shadow isn’t really a man at all.

Indicative that suns go down;
The notice to the startled grass
That darkness is about to pass.
Emily Dickinson
[My novel] took up the sweetest part of my mind and the rarest part of my imagination; it was like being in love and better. All day long when I was busy […], I had my unfinished novel personified almost as a secret companion and accomplice following me like a shadow wherever I went, whatever I did.
Muriel Spark
Great groups give the lie to the remarkably persistent but incorrect notion that successful organizations are the lengthened shadow of a great woman or man. However, each great group has a strong leader. In fact, great groups and great leaders create each other.
Warren G. Bennis
My job on ‘Dark Shadows’ was to make it fun and funny, first and foremost. It can still be dark and it can still even be gory and gothic at times, but it also needed to be fun and it needed to be an experience that people would enjoy having.
Seth Grahame-Smith
A self is, by its very essence, a being with a past. One must look lengthwise backwards in the stream of time in order to see theself, or its shadow, now moving with the stream, now eddying in the currents from bank to bank of its channel, and now strenuously straining onwards in the pursuit of its chosen good.
Josiah Royce
I believe that when death closes our eyes we shall awaken to a light, of which our sunlight is but the shadow.
Arthur Schopenhauer
I love being called NTRs grandson. I never moved away from his shadow, maybe because I didnt try enough or maybe because I like it this way.

Stephenie Meyer
And they three passed over the white sands, between the rocks, silent as the shadows.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
The teacher showed us how to see proportions, relationships, light and shadow, negative space, and space between space – something I never noticed before! In one week, I went from not knowing how to draw to sketching a detailed portrait. It literally changed the way I see things.
Daniel H. Pink
Our life is shaped by our mind; we become what we think. Suffering follows an evil thought as the wheels of a cart follow the oxen that draws it. Our life is shaped by our mind; we become what we think. Joy follows a pure thought like a shadow that never leaves.
Gautama Buddha
To live with the conscious knowledge of the shadow of uncertainty, with the knowledge that disaster or tragedy could strike at any time; to be afraid and to know and acknowledge your fear, and still to live creatively and with unstinting love: that is to live with grace.
Peter Abrahams
Shadow had heard too many people telling each other not to repress their feelings, to let their emotions out, let the pain go. Shadow thought there was a lot to be said for bottling up emotions. If you did it long enough and deep enough, he suspected, pretty soon you wouldn’t feel anything at all.
Neil Gaiman
The end of the day is near when small men make long shadows.
Truth and fact are old-fashioned and out-of-date, my friends, fit only for the dull and vulgar to live by. Appearance, not reality, is what the clever dog grasps at in these clever days. We spurn the dull-brown solid earth; we build our lives and homes in the fair-seeming rainbow-land of shadow and chimera.
Jerome K. Jerome
I measured the skies, now the shadows I measure, Sky-bound was the mind, earth-bound the body rests. [Kepler’s epitaph]
Johannes Kepler
Look at these ISIS people. These people are ruthless. They don’t operate by any sort of normal civilized code. That’s the world. There’s a shadow world that exists out there.
George Newbern
I think that light and shadow have exactly the same duality that exists between life and death.
Manuel Alvarez Bravo
Time is but a shadow, a dream; already God sees us in glory and takes joy in our eternal beatitude. How this thought helps my soul! I understand then why He lets us suffer.
Therese of Lisieux
Shadows sometimes people don’t see shadows. The Chinese of course never paint them in pictures, oriental art never deals with shadow. But I noticed these shadows and I knew it meant it was sunny.
David Hockney
The future of AEW is Maxwell J. Friedman, without a shadow of a doubt. I am going to be the face of this company. At the tender age of 23… people think I’m great now? They don’t know the half of it. I mean, my career’s only just begun.
Maxwell Jacob Friedman
Kill a man who needs killing, and sometimes others pay for it. The question is, was it worth doing it anyway? There’s always a balance, you know. Good and evil. Light and Shadow. We would not be human if there wasn’t a balance.
Robert Jordan
What if Earth be but the shadow of Heaven and things therein – each other like, more than on Earth is thought?
John Milton
Emil Nava brother is Jake Nava, who did Beyonce’s Crazy In Love and stuff. He’s always lived in his brother’s shadow, and this is the first time that he’s just killing sh*t. I’m really just happy that he’s on top and really doing well.
Ed Sheeran
Devotion is like the candle which Michael Angelo used to take in his pasteboard cap, so as not to throw his shadow upon the work in which he was engaged.
Phillips Brooks
I’m a shadow whisperer: I hide in the shadows. And I tend to avoid places where I might get photographed and end up with my picture in the press.
Jessica Chastain
When we are unhurried and wise, we perceive that only great and worthy things have any permanent and absolute existence, that petty fears and petty pleasures are but the shadow of the reality.
Henry David Thoreau
History is full of people who thought they were right — absolutely right, completely right, without a shadow of a doubt. And because history never seems like history when you are living through it, it is tempting for us to think the same.
John D. Barrow
Stanton emerged from the shadows. “So your brother thinks you need a boyfriend?”he teased. “Stop.
Lynne Ewing
Once there was a man who was afraid of his shadow.
Then he met it.
Now he glows in the dark.
Ben Loory
When a shadow flits across the landscape of the soul where is the substance?
Henry David Thoreau
If a dream affords the dreamer some light on himself, it is not the person with closed eyes who makes the discovery but the person with open eyes lucid enough to fit thoughts together. Dream-a scintillating mirage surrounded by shadows-is essentially poetry.
Michel Leiris
Once we recognize our shadow’s existence we must resist the enticing step of going with its flow.
Karl Marlantes
The fall of the Berlin Wall really demonstrated beyond the shadow of a doubt that there was a bad system, and what subsequently happened in the Soviet Union, that that system was a failure.
Milton Friedman
Once you uncover the history of this pattern and trace its roots, you will see that your reaction in the present moment is really a reaction from the past, a shadow character’s attempt to protect you from reexperiencing an old emotional wound, which instead sabotages you in the present.
Connie Zweig
Words are pale shadows of forgotten names. As names have power, words have power. Words can light fires in the minds of men. Words can wring tears from the hardest hearts.
Patrick Rothfuss
Oh, Love is the crooked thing, there is nobody wise enough to find out all that is in it, for he will be thinking about love til the stars run away and the shadows eaten the moon.
William Butler Yeats
Even in art, there is no light without shadows, and no shadows are cast without some light. Even the shadow of Adolf Hitler is accompanied by some light.
Hans Frank
I like characters with flaws, who have shadow.
Matt Bomer
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil.
The easily ridiculed, so-so status quo often hides Herculean efforts by those whom we take for granted, and who, working in the shadows, guarantee civilization instead of chaos.
Victor Davis Hanson
He was powerful and I died of love in his shadow.
Elizabeth Gilbert
Alas! how little can a moment show Of an eye where feeling plays In ten thousand dewy rays: A face o’er which a thousand shadows go!
William Wordsworth
I measure myself Against a tall tree I find that I am much taller, For I reach right up to the sun With my eye; And I reach to the shore of the sea With my ear. Nevertheless, I dislike The way the ants crawl In and out of my shadow.
Wallace Stevens
In ancient shadows and twilightsWhere childhood had strayed,The world’s great sorrows were bornAnd its heroes were made.In the lost boyhood of JudasChrist was betrayed.
George William Russell
If you look toward the sunshine, you will never see the shadows.
Helen Keller
Memories may escape the action of the will, may sleep a long time, but when stirred by the right influence, though that influence be light as a shadow, they flash into full stature and life with everything in place
John Muir
Time is but the shadow of the world upon the background of Eternity.
Jerome K. Jerome
I have slept with you all night long while the dark earth spins with the living and the dead, and on waking suddenly in the midst of the shadow my arm encircled your waist. Neither night nor sleep could separate us.
Pablo Neruda
His eyes glow in the shadows as he slides the soft liquid semen dripping down my thigh in a path leading back into my swollen entry, as if he doesn’t want to come out of my body. “Sticky?” he asks in a gruff murmur, bending his head and licking my shoulder as he pushes his semen back inside with one finger.
Katy Evans
God remains dead. And we have killed him. Yet his shadow still looms. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers?
Friedrich Nietzsche
You can’t stand up to the night until you understand what’s hiding in its shadows.
Charles de Lint
The source of my power and strength is God, and I know it, without a shadow of a doubt.
Derek Fisher
Every arrangement in life carried with it the sadness, the sentimental shadow, of its not being something else, but only itself.
Lorrie Moore
Evil and good are everywhere, like shadow and substance; inseparable (for men) yet not hostile, only opposed.
Thomas Carlyle
Human rights are not a privilege granted by the few, they are a liberty entitled to all, and human rights, by definition, include the rights of all humans, those in the dawn of life, the dusk of life, or the shadows of life.
Kay Granger
Because of Obama … dreamers who are American in every way except on paper, no longer live under the shadow of deportation.
Nydia Velazquez
Barack Obama is not only going to reside in Washington and be on call, essentially, with the Drive-By Media, he’s setting up what essentially is going to be a shadow government.
Rush Limbaugh
The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort.
Carl Jung
Love is a trap. When it appears, we see only its light, not its shadows.
Paulo Coelho
Somewhere in the shadow cast by every famous man is a feminine victim.
Jules Renard
India should walk on her own shadow – we must have our own development model.
Abdul Kalam
I can respect somebody that can do something I know without a shadow of a doubt, even if you backed up $5 million in front of me, I could not do that.
Arn Anderson
Ofttimes a very small man can cast a very large shadow.
George R. R. Martin
I don’t love you as if you were the salt-rose, topaz or arrow of carnations that propagate fire: I love you as certain dark things are loved, secretly, between the shadow and the soul.
Pablo Neruda
Indeed, what forces us at all to suppose that there is an essential opposition of ‘true’ and ‘false’? Is it not sufficient to assume degrees of apparentness and, as it were, lighter and darker shadows and shades of appearance- different ‘values’, to use the language of painters?
Friedrich Nietzsche
But sometimes it’s the sunshine that frightens us more than the big black shadows.
Megan Hart
I think you can photograph a certain sliver of human presence in its absence… images taken in the empty rooms, the marks left on the walls, disappearing shadows, etc.
Mona Kuhn
Greatness of name, in the father, ofttimes helps not forth, but overwhelms the son: They stand too near one another. The shadow kills the growth.
Ben Jonson
For me it was a normality having a father who was a world champion. I grew up with that, so it was never extra pressure. And I’ve never felt the need to emerge from his shadow.
Autumn can be glorious but menacing too – the long shadows, brisk winds, scurrying leaves, impending frost.
A.S.A. Harrison
In my 20s, I was too shy to reach out to successful DPs and directors for an internship or to shadow them. I see young people nowadays doing that all the time. I think that experience would have been cool.
Reed Morano
If Iran gains a nuclear weapon, we will need a new calendar in the world – it would change humanity that much. Iran will give these weapons to terrorists the world over, and your children and mine will step into the shadow of nuclear terrorism.
Trent Franks
The short story is very good at looking at shadow psychologies and how the system breaks down underneath.
Sarah Hall
The shadow is not a problem to be solved or an enemy to be conquered, but a fertile field to be cultivated. When we dig our hands into its rich soil we will discover the potent seeds of the people we most desire to be.
Debbie Ford
Every time you do a good deed you shine the light a little farther into the dark. And the thing is, when you’re gone that light is going to keep shining on, pushing the shadows back.
Charles de Lint
Fifty years from now Britain will still be the country of long shadows on county grounds, warm beer, invincible green suburbs, dog lovers and pools fillers and – as George Orwell said – “old maids bicycling to Holy Communion through the morning mist” and if we get our way – Shakespeare still read even in school.
John Major
Oh, Duty is an icy shadow!
Augusta Jane Evans
A pathetic shadow, torn between her envy and thrill of being seen with Masomma, sharing in the attention as a weed would, lapping up water meant for the lily upstream.
Khaled Hosseini
I think the challenge for humans remains the same as it has always been: to learn the skills of kindness, compassion, and love. Without these sacred skills, all technology can do is grow the shadows in our lives.
Alexander Weinstein
Science casts a long black shadow back over who we think we are, and where it falls the temperature falls with it. Its touch is chilly and unforgiving.
Richard K. Morgan
Very hot and still the air was, Very smooth the gliding river, Motionless the sleeping shadows.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Is an institution always a man’s shadow shortened in the sun, the lowest common denominator of everybody in it?
Randall Jarrell
I thank to all the shadows and all the darknesses of my life; it is owing to them that I now love the light much more than ever before!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
[Hillary Clinton] has talked about not being a natural campaigner. And she has this big shadow because her husband, the former president [Bill Clinton], and President [Barack] Obama both are natural campaigners. And so this is a challenge for her.
Tamara Keith
You were the living image of the entire Platonic shadow show, an illusion that could fill my emptiness with marvellous, imaginary things as long as, just as long as, the movie lasted, and then all would all vanish.
Angela Carter
As I walked, I ran my fingers along the spines of hundreds of books. I let myself be imbued with the smell, with the light that filtered through the cracks or from the glass lanterns embedded in the wooden structure, floating among mirrors and shadows.
Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Even in warmest glow how cold my shadow

Even in warmest glow how cold my shadow
Kobayashi Issa
It’s very interesting that most of the roles I’ve gotten are grim, when I’m actually a very well-adjusted man and had a happy upbringing. I guess there are some dark shadows somewhere in there, but I’m a big kid.
Tony Todd
Starry Starry night
Paint your palette blue and gray
Look out on a summer’s day
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul
Shadows on the hills
Sketch the trees and the daffodils
Catch the breeze and the winter chills
In colors on the snowy linen land.
Don McLean
Don’t laugh at the voice of the stars. They are far away, their rays are light and pale, and we can barely see their sleeping shadows, but their sorcery is stern and dark.
Leonid Andreyev
We reap what we sow, but nature has love over and above that justice, and gives us shadow and blossom and fruit, that spring from no planting of ours.
George Eliot
You choose to shine with the light of your own divinity, or you hide it with the shadows you create in your mind. You must choose where to live -in the light or the shadows. The most powerful tool you have is your power of choice.
Dustin Rhodes is very mature in this business and he is a very smart man and he came up in a rough way and let me put it to you this way; when you are Dusty Rhodes’ kid it is a horrible shadow to step in to, number two you’ve already got heat because your Dad is the booker and people think you are getting a free ride.
Arn Anderson
Treasure the shadow. … There are no shadows save from substance cast.
Edith M. Thomas
We all have the dark, ignorant shadow inside us. I have worked endlessly to reveal it and heal it in me, but of course there’s some primitive weird stuff in me. The Tea Party is about exhorting white supremacy, though, so I’ve had a tiny bit of trouble experiencing sympathy.
Anne Lamott
We knew – but didn’t want to know – what was going to happen, the sky descending upon our heads like the shadow of a falling piano in a cartoon.
Aleksandar Hemon
Life itself is but the shadow of death, and souls departed but the shadows of the living: All things fall under this name. The Sun itself is but the dark simulacrum, and the light but the shadow of God.
Thomas Browne
How slow the shadow creeps: but when ’tis past How fast the shadows fall. How fast! How fast!
Hilaire Belloc
Out, out, brief candle! Life’s but a walking shadow.
William Shakespeare
If you are after truth, let your shadow be the only shadow around you! Stay away from the crowds!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
There is another way of disqualifying the metaphysicians…. Judge them by their works. What have they done for mankind beyond the spinning of airy fancies and the mistaking of their own shadows for gods?
Jack London
Shadow is ever besieged, for that is its nature. Whilst darkness devours, and light steals. And so one sees shadow ever retreat to hidden places, only to return in the wake of the war between dark and light.
Steven Erikson
Hyeon means sunshine. Seo means good fortune. I chose it so that I would live my life in light and warmth and not return to the shadow.
Lee Hyeon-seo
If Eastlake High School were the universe, I would be one of the moons circling Planet Emma, constantly hidden by her shadow, and glad to be there. Nash Hudson would be one of the stars: too bright to look at, too hot to touch and at the center of his own solar system.
Rachel Vincent
Corrupt influence is itself the perennial spring of all prodigality, and of all disorder; it loads us more than millions of debt; takes away vigor from our arms, wisdom from our councils, and every shadow of authority and credit from the most venerable parts of our constitution.
Edmund Burke
That’s the kind of death that frightens me. The shadow of death slowly, slowly eats away at the region of life, and before you know it everything’s dark and you can’t see, and the people around you think of you as more dead than alive.
Haruki Murakami
Remember this, boy. All dwarfs may be bastards, yet not all bastards need be dwarfs.” And with that he turned and sauntered back into the feast, whistling a tune. When he opened the door, the light from within threw his shadow clear across the yard, and for just a moment Tyrion Lannister stood tall as a king.
George R. R. Martin
I have spent much of my adult life flinching with pain as I tried to pull out the threads that bound the shadows of my past to me.
Lorna Luft
We are but shadows: we are, not endowed with real life, and all that seems most real about us is but the thinnest substance of a dream,–till the heart be touched. That touch creates us–then we begin to be–thereby we are beings of reality and inheritors of eternity.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
All these years I kept my true nature hidden, running along like a small shadow so nobody could catch me. -Ying Ying
Amy Tan
My dark side, my shadow, my lower companion is now in the back room blowing up balloons for kids’ parties.
Gary Busey
The sound of the mandolin is a very curious sound because it’s cheerful and melancholy at the same time, and I think it comes from that shadow string, the double strings.
Rita Dove
You think the shadow is the substance.
With all those fledgling countries in Asia, who really want to stand with us but they live under the shadow of China and the smaller shadow of Russia. So I just think Trans-Pacific Partnership is really important both economically and geopolitically.
John Kasich
As each layer of shadow is mined from the darkness, as each fear is faced and each projection reclaimed, the gold shines through.
Connie Zweig
But I know too that if we ever make a world without shadow, if the chemists and scientists and psychologists succeed in abolishing fear, pain, loneliness, death, some of us will find life so intolerable we will probably blow out our brains out of sheer boredom.
MacDonald Harris
Imagination is the real and eternal world of which this vegetable universe is but a faint shadow.
William Blake
Unfortunately, some parents simply don’t love their children. Probably they don’t even love themselves. That may be the heart of their problem. Having parents like this is a terrible burden for any child and can shadow him all through life. It can even destroy him.
David Viscott
When I think about voting, I can skip it and still see myself as a good citizen. But when I think about being a voter, now the choice reflects on my character. It casts a shadow.
Adam Grant
The thing about shadows is that they’re not all darkness. You need to have light to have shadows. So just look for it.
A. Meredith Walters
When there’s a shadow, you follow the sun.
When there is love, then you look for the one.
And for the promises, there is the sky.
And for the heavens are those who can fly.
And as the years have passed, the time has grown longer. The sad truth is that what I could recall in five seconds all too needed ten, then thirty, then a full minute – like shadows lengthening at dusk. Someday, I suppose, the shadows will be swallowed up in darkness.
Haruki Murakami
Is it the sea you hear in me? Its dissatisfactions? Or the voice of nothing, that was your madness? Love is a shadow. How you lie and cry after it.
Sylvia Plath
Then Morgoth stretching out his long arm towards Dor-lomin cursed Hurin and Morwen and their offspring, saying: ‘Behold! The shadow of my thought shall lie upon them wherever they go, and my hate shall pursue them to the ends of the world.
J. R. R. Tolkien
O, beautiful rainbow; – all woven of light!
There’s not in thy tissue, one shadow of night;
Heaven surely is open when thou dost appear,
And, bending above thee, the angels draw near,
And sing, – “The rainbow! the rainbow!
“The smile of God is here.”
Sarah Josepha Hale
The shows of the day, the dewy morning, the rainbow, mountains, orchards in blossom, stars, moonlight, shadows in still water, andthe like, if too eagerly hunted, become shows merely, and mock us with their unreality.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Time is hastening on, and we
What our fathers are shall be,–
Shadow-shapes of memory!
Joined to that vast multitude
Where the great are but the good.
John Greenleaf Whittier
Night-dreams trace on Memory’s wall Shadows of the thoughts of day, And thy fortunes, as they fall, The bias of the will betray.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The act of writing requires a constant plunging back into the shadow of the past where time hovers ghostlike.
Ralph Ellison
In the Shadow of Slavery covers two and a half centuries of black life in New York City, and skillfully interweaves the categories of race and class as they affected the formation of African American identity. Leslie Harris has made a major contribution to our understanding of the black experience.
Eric Foner
Flatterers are the worst kind of traitors, for they will strengthen thy imperfections, encourage thee in all evils, correct thee in nothing, but so shadow and paint thy follies and vices as thou shalt never, by their will, discover good from evil, or vice from virtue.
Walter Raleigh
Don’t be afraid of the shadows, it only means there’s a light nearby.
Amy Lee
Since a three-dimensional object casts a two-dimensional shadow, we should be able to imagine the unknown four-dimensional object whose shadow we are. I for my part am fascinated by the search for a one-dimensional object that casts no shadow at all.
Marcel Duchamp
“My burden is light,” said the blessed Redeemer, a light burden indeed, which carries him that bears it. I have looked through all nature for a resemblance of this, and seem to find a shadow of it in the wings of a bird, which are indeed borne by the creature, and yet support her flight towards heaven.
Bernard of Clairvaux
The shadow of an exit of Greece from the euro zone takes on ever clearer shape, repeated apparently final attempts to reach a deal are starting to make the whole process look ridiculous. There is an ever greater number of people who feel as if the Greek government is giving them the run-around.
Sigmar Gabriel
I think evil is our collective shadow. Each one of us has a tendency for the diabolical. If I put you in inhumane conditions, if you’re not educated, if you’re extremely poor, if you’re humiliated, then as a child if you suffer abuse, then you will manifest even when you grow up.
Deepak Chopra
The valley of the shadow of death holds no darkness for the child of God. There must be light, else there could be no shadow. Jesus is the light. He has overcome death.
Dwight L. Moody
