Darkness Around Me quotes by Sojourner Truth
#1. Life is a hard battle anyway. If we laugh and sing a little as we fight the good fight of freedom, it makes it all go easier. I will not allow my life's light to be determined by the darkness around me. #Quote by Sojourner Truth
Darkness Around Me quotes by Azar Nafisi
#2. I turned on the flashlight; it cut a small circle of light from the darkness around me. #Quote by Azar Nafisi
Darkness Around Me quotes by Jim Butcher
#3. Fear has a lot of flavors and textures. There's a sharp, silver fear that runs like lightning through your arms and legs, galvanizes you into action, power, motion. There's heavy, leaden fear that comes in ingots, piling up in your belly during the empty hours between midnight and morning, when everything is dark, every problem grows larger, and every wound and illness grows worse. And there is coppery fear, drawn tight as the strings of a violin, quavering on one single note that cannot possibly be sustained for a single second longer - but goes on and on and on, the tension before the crash of cymbals, the brassy challenge of the horns, the threatening rumble of the kettle drums. That's the kind of fear I felt. Horrible, clutching tension that left the coppery flavor of blood on my tongue. Fear of the creatures in the darkness around me, of my own weakness, the stolen power the Nightmare had torn from me. And fear for those around me, for the folk who didn't have the power I had. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Darkness Around Me quotes by Marie Lu
#4. And I'm not horrified. I look at it, indulging in the darkness around me, feeding me, strengthening me, and I realize that I'm happy I killed him. Truly happy. #Quote by Marie Lu
Darkness Around Me quotes by Samuel Beckett
#5. The new light above my table is a great improvement. With all this darkness around me I feel less alone. (Pause.) In a way. (Pause.) I love to get up and move about in it, then back here to ... (hesitates) ... me. (Pause.) #Quote by Samuel Beckett
Darkness Around Me quotes by Richelle Mead
#6. Abe's face came back into focus. "Greetings, Zmey," I said weakly. Somehow, him being here didn't surprise me. "Nice of you to slither on in." He shook his head, wearing a rueful smile.
"I think you've outdone me when it comes to sneaking around dark corners. I thought you were on your way back to Montana."
"Next time, make sure you write a few more details into your bargains. Or just pack me up and send me back to the U. S. For real."
"Oh," he said, "that's exactly what I intend to do."
He kept smiling as he said it, but somehow, I had a feeling he wasn't joking. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Darkness Around Me quotes by Miles Walser
#7. 1.

I told you that I was a roadway of potholes, not safe to cross. You said nothing, showed up in my driveway wearing roller-skates.


The first time I asked you on a date, after you hung up, I held the air between our phones against my ear and whispered, "You will fall in love with me. Then, just months later, you will fall out. I will pretend the entire time that I don't know it's coming."


Once, I got naked and danced around your bedroom, awkward and safe. You did the same. We held each other without hesitation and flailed lovely. This was vulnerability foreplay.


The last eight times I told you I loved you, they sounded like apologies.


You recorded me a CD of you repeating, "You are beautiful." I listened to it until I no longer thought in my own voice.


Into the half-empty phone line, I whispered, "We will wake up believing the worst in each other. We will spit shrapnel at each other's hearts. The bruises will lodge somewhere we don't know how to look for and I will still pretend I don't know its coming."


You photographed my eyebrow shapes and turned them into flashcards: mood on one side, correct response on the other. You studied them until you knew when to stay silent.


I bought you an entire bakery so that we could eat nothing but breakfast for a week. Breakfast, untainted by the day ahead, #Quote by Miles Walser
Darkness Around Me quotes by Jackson Pearce
#8. So, did you see that community center I was talking about?"
"What? Where?"
"We walked right past it, just before that grocery store. I mentioned it on the way to the city? You just drop in and take classes. They've got all sorts of stuff. I bet you can get a student rate, even."
"But I'm not a student - "
"You're young enough that they'll assume - "
" - and how am I supposed to find the time to take dance classes, now that I'm the dessert?"
"I'm starting to really regret using that metaphor," Silas says, grinning. "And let me explain something, Rosie." He takes a swig of the coffee and presses his lips together, searching for words. "I'm from a long, long, long, long line of woodsmen. My brothers are all supertalented. They all built their own rooms. For god's sake, Lucas built a freaking wooden hot tub in his bedroom with wooden monkeys pouring water into it."
"Don't ask. Anyway, I can do some woodworking. I know my way around the forest, I can handle an ax better than most, I can make a tree grow where nothing else will, I can live off berries and hunt for my food, and I've known about the Fenris since I could crawl. I'm a woodsman, for all intents and purposes. But that doesn't mean I live for it any more than the fact that you're good at hunting means you have to live for that. So maybe breaking out of the hunting lifestyle for a few hours here and there will help you figure out if it's really for you or not."
I shak #Quote by Jackson Pearce
Darkness Around Me quotes by Kim Yuna
#9. The Sochi Games is not only my second Olympics, but the 'retirement stage' for me, so I want to have a greater experience than any other competition before. In the past, I had strong concepts for short programs and lyrical ones for the long. But this time, it's the other way around. #Quote by Kim Yuna
Darkness Around Me quotes by Harvey Milk
#10. If I turned around every time somebody called me a faggot, I'd be walking backward - and I don't want to walk backward. #Quote by Harvey Milk
Darkness Around Me quotes by Monique Truong
#11. After a week's worth of failed fairy tales - stories that made my eyelids flutter open and not shut - my father tried telling me stories that belonged only to him. Thomas told me of an island off the coast of a different world. On this island, there stood a city whose buildings were made of glass. He told me that at the heart of this city was a forest with trees, ponds and a lake, swans and horses, and even a small castle. He told me that the streets of the city were filled with bright yellow cars that you hopped in and out of at will and that would take you wherever you wanted to go. In this city, there were sidewalks overflowing with people from the whole world over who wanted so much to be there. He told me of its neighborhoods, with names like Greenwich Village and Harlem and Chinatown. At the nucleus of these stories was my father, and spinning around him was the city of New York. Long before I would see them in photographs or in real life, my father had given me the white crown lights of the Chrysler Building and the shining needle of the Empire State. #Quote by Monique Truong
Darkness Around Me quotes by Anna Campbell
#12. You love me," he said slowly, wonderingly. Then with greater certainty, "By God, you love me." His astonished laugh ended on a choked note as he snatched her hand.
"So much," she said huskily. Her fingers curled hard around his. "So very, very much. #Quote by Anna Campbell
Darkness Around Me quotes by Charles Soule
#13. I actually started trying to be a professional writer with novels, and I wrote two that exist and are around ... kind of. But they never really went anyplace in particular. I still like them both. What it showed me was that you can spend years on a novel, and then it could just be, like, OK, you spent that time and that's that. #Quote by Charles Soule
Darkness Around Me quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#14. Joseph Beringer ... dances around behind me singing some poorly rhymed and slightly dirty song about my [racing] odds at my skirts.
'I don't even wear skirts,' I snap at him.
'Especially,' he says, 'in my daydreams. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Darkness Around Me quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#15. Tyler stood next to me, both looking at the big O of my mouth with blood all around it and the little slit of my eye staring up at us from the floor, and Tyler says, Cool. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Darkness Around Me quotes by Marina Keegan
#16. I got a personal e-mail and went to their event because I couldn't believe that they were interested in me and I wanted to find out why," she said. But when she got there, she wasn't sure why she'd come in the first place. "I looked around and felt that I not only didn't belong with the group of people but that I didn't believe in what the organization stands for or does," she said. "There's definitely a compulsion element to it. You feel like so many people are doing it and talking about it all the time like it's interesting, so you start to wonder if maybe it really is. #Quote by Marina Keegan
Darkness Around Me quotes by Cass Elliot
#17. I've always been so apathetic. I figured, OK, maybe the world is going to fall down around me. Now I want to make a better world ... that's motherhood. #Quote by Cass Elliot
Darkness Around Me quotes by Xavier Niel
#18. Personally, I have invested in around ten U.S. companies and will continue to do so. That doesn't give me a strong experience in the American market. But I have an understanding of the public. #Quote by Xavier Niel
Darkness Around Me quotes by Mark Z. Danielewski
#19. Her. Her. Her. Future breezes implore
me to stay.
But I'm no future. I'm no past.
Only ever contemporary of this path.
I'll sacrifice everything
for all her seasons give from losing.
She, I sigh
from The Mountain top.
By her now. My only role. And for that freedom,
spread my polar chill, reaching even the warmest times,
a warning upon the back of every life
that would by harming Hailey's play, ever wayward
around this vegetative rush of orbit & twine,
awaken among these cascading cliffs of bellicose ice

And my Vengeance.
At once.
The Justice of my awful loss
set free upon this crowded land. An old terror
violent for the glee of
But to those who would tend her, harrowed
by such Beauty & Fleeting Presence to do more,
my cool cries will kiss their gentle foreheads
and my tears will kiss their tender cheeks,
and then if the Love of their Kindness, which only
Kindness ever finds, spills my ear, for a while I might
slip down and play amidst her canopies of gold.

Solitude. Hailey's bare feet.
And all her patience now assumes.
Garland of Spring's Sacred Bloom.
By you, ever sixteen, this World's preserved.
By you, this World has everything left to lose.
And I, your sentry of ice, shall allways protect
what your Joy so dangerously resumes.
I'll destroy no World
so long it keeps t #Quote by Mark Z. Danielewski
Darkness Around Me quotes by Nalini Singh
#20. Thick lashes lifted, a moment of pure clarity in the dark gray as Noah wrapped his arm around her waist. "Meant to ask you to marry me, put the ring in the plant soil, but gardener made me drunk. He's so small. What happened?" #Quote by Nalini Singh
Darkness Around Me quotes by Henry Rollins
#21. I'm usually busy - if you call me at the house, I get about four phone calls there a year - I'm usually running around the house with a pen in my mouth holding onto something, folding it, or doing something to it, and it's always a bad time. #Quote by Henry Rollins
Darkness Around Me quotes by Emily Meade
#22. I was like little-miss wannabe punk-rocker; I would go home and secretly listen to Pink, and dance around, like, 'Ugh, she understands me so well!' #Quote by Emily Meade
Darkness Around Me quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#23. What you absolutely must not do is turn around and walk out. Otherwise, you will miss the party, and that would be a pity, because - please believe me - we did not come all this great distance, and make all this great effort, only to miss the party at the last moment. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Darkness Around Me quotes by Kelly Osbourne
#24. I still find it tough to be around girls because I always say the wrong thing. If a friend asks me if I look fat in something, I'll be honest and say 'Yeah' when she does. #Quote by Kelly Osbourne
Darkness Around Me quotes by Karen Luellen
#25. You ran miles and miles to find me, didn't you? You clever boy! I don't know if I should be scolding you or hugging you!" And with that, I wrapped my weak arms around my knight in furry armor. "You're the best friend a girl could ever have, Maze. I love you. #Quote by Karen Luellen
Darkness Around Me quotes by Ilona Andrews
#26. What the hell was all that about?" Juke asked. "All I heard was a weird hissing language with some 'fucks' in it."
The tension hung in the air. I had to say something to break it. "This is nothing. You should see the fit he threw when I told him I wasn't coming to visit for Christmas."
Barabas laughed.
The mercs looked at him, then back at me.
"Family," Curran said, putting his arm around me. "Can't live with them, can't kill them. You ready to go home, baby?"
"Sure," I said.
Outside I stopped. "I did it again."
"I know," he said.
"I'm trying."
"I know. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Darkness Around Me quotes by J.T. Geissinger
#27. I just brought myself to orgasm to the soundtrack of the exhibitionists getting it on.
I'm a pervert.
Kelly would be so proud.
As great as my impromptu little porno was, it did contain one glaring flaw: if a man ever slapped me on the ass, I'd whirl around and punch him in the face. #Quote by J.T. Geissinger
Darkness Around Me quotes by Rachel Naomi Remen
#28. While an impulse toward wholeness is natural and exists in everyone, each of us heals in our own way. Some people heal because they have work to do. Others heal because they have been released from their work and the pressures and expectations that others place on them. Some people need music, others need silence, some need people around them, others heal alone. Many different things can activate and strengthen the life force in us. For each of us there are conditions of healing that are as unique as a fingerprint. Sometimes people ask me what I do in my sessions with patients. Often I just remind people of the possibility of healing and study their own way of dealing with them. #Quote by Rachel Naomi Remen
Darkness Around Me quotes by John Hodgman
#29. The few people who ask to have their photographs with me, I almost always say yes, except for a few circumstances, like when my family is around. #Quote by John Hodgman
Darkness Around Me quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#30. When along the pavement,
Palpitating flames of life,
People flicker around me,
I forget my bereavement,
The gap in the great constellation,
The place where a star used to be #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
Darkness Around Me quotes by Tammara Webber
#31. He looked up and caught me staring, and for the first time that morning, neither of us looked away until Erin said, "J - pay attention! Just try to slap me." I broke the stare and turned to her. She moved around to face me, her back to Lucas, and rolled her eyes. "Does the concept of playing hard-to-get totally escape you?" she whispered. "Let. Him. Chase."

"I'm not playing that game any longer."

She glanced over her shoulder and back. "Girlfriend, I don't think he knows that."

I shrugged. #Quote by Tammara Webber
Darkness Around Me quotes by Halsey
#32. My mom is awesome. She's really young. My mom is 40, and she raised me listening to Nirvana and Courtney Love and Coldplay, Gin Blossoms, The Cranberries, and stuff. Like, my early, early memories are of being a little kid running around in floral skirts and Doc Martens when I was, like, three. #Quote by Halsey
Darkness Around Me quotes by Erwin Schrodinger
#33. The scientific picture of the real world around me is very deficient. It gives a lot of factual information ... [but] it cannot tell us a word about red and blue, bitter and sweet, physical pain and physical delight; it knows nothing of beautiful and ugly, good or bad, God and eternity. So, in brief, we do not belong to this material world that science constructs for us ... the scientific worldview contains of itself ... not a word about our own ultimate scope or destination. #Quote by Erwin Schrodinger
Darkness Around Me quotes by Kody Keplinger
#34. I took a step back as the knob turned and the door swung open. There stood Dad, his eyes red and deeply circled behind his glasses. He looked really pale, like he'd been sick, and I could see his hand shaking on the doorknob. "Bianca."
He didn't smell like whiskey.
I let out a breath I hadn't realized I was holding. "Hi, Dad. I, um, left my keys inside last night, so…"
He moved slowly forward, like he was afraid I might run away. Then he wrapped his arms around me, pulled me into his chest, and buried his face in my hair. We stood there together for a long moment, and when he finally spoke, I could tell the words came through sobs. "I'm so, so sorry. #Quote by Kody Keplinger
Darkness Around Me quotes by Jason  Matthews
#35. I want to feel that sometimes we leave the operation behind, that there is just you and me." Her bossom heaved in her brassiere. He stood up and put his arms around her. His mind was a riptide of damage control battling the stirring of his passion for her. He smelled her hair, and felt her body.
"Dominika," he said, and the rushing in his ears started, the old danger signal.
"Will you break your rules again?" she asked. She saw his purple lust, it lit up the darkened room.
"I want you to violate your rules ... with me... not your agent, me" said Dominika. #Quote by Jason Matthews
Darkness Around Me quotes by Sonali Dev
#36. Your brother cooks because he wants to comfort people, to show them the pleasure their bodies are capable of experiencing, to make them pause and savor their own existence as they fly through life. You can see it in his face every time someone eats his food... And me? I do it because I want to save lives, take away suffering. Whatever the case, we want to change things around us. Because we want to matter, and we believe that our work makes us matter. The work isn't the end, it's the means for what we really want: to matter. #Quote by Sonali Dev
Darkness Around Me quotes by Robert Smith
#37. I lose myself in music because I can't be bothered explaining what I feel to anyone else around me. #Quote by Robert Smith
Darkness Around Me quotes by S.K. Tremayne
#38. It's not so much my own death that is intolerable, it's the death of those around me. Because I love them. And part of me dies with them. Therefore all love, if you like, is a form of suicide. #Quote by S.K. Tremayne
Darkness Around Me quotes by Mary Katharine Ham
#39. Let's talk about 'Coexist' bumper stickers for a second. You've definitely seen them around. They're those blue strips with white lettering that assemble a collection of religious icons and mystical symbols (e.g., an Islamic crescent, a Star of David, a Christian cross, a peace sign, a yin-yang) to spell out a simple message of inclusion and tolerance. Perhaps you instinctively roll your eyes at these advertisements of moral correctness. Perhaps you find the sentiment worthwhile, but you're not a wear-your-politics-on-your-fender type of person. Or perhaps you actually have 'Coexist' bumper stickers affixed to both your Prius and your Beamer. Whatever floats your boat, man; far be it from us to cast stones. But we bring up these particular morality minibillboards to illustrate a bothersome dichotomy. If we were to draw a Venn diagram of (a) the people who flaunt their socially responsible "coexist" values for fellow motorists, and (b) the people who believe that, say, an evangelical Christian who owns a local flower shop ought to be sued and shamed for politely declining to provide floral arrangements for a same-sex wedding, the resulting circles would more or less overlap.
The coexist message: You people (i.e., conservatives) need to get on board and start coexisting with groups that might make you uncomfortable. It says so right here on my highly enlightened bumper sticker. But don't you dare ask me to tolerate the 'intolerance' of people with whom I disagree. Because #Quote by Mary Katharine Ham
Darkness Around Me quotes by J.D. Salinger
#40. Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
Darkness Around Me quotes by Catherynne M Valente
#41. No," said the demon. "A witch is just a girl who knows her mind. I am better than a witch. But look at the great orgy coming up like a rose around me. No night in Hell could be as bright. #Quote by Catherynne M Valente
Darkness Around Me quotes by Paul Auster
#42. Bluntly and quietly, in a series of simple, forthright sentences, she dismantled the architecture of unhappiness that had been growing up around us for the past several days. She was calling from the office she said, and had to talk in a low voice, 'but if you can hear me, Sid' she began, 'there are four things I want you to know. First, I haven't stopped thinking about you since I left the house this morning. Second, I've decided to have the baby, and we're never going to use the word "abortion" again. Third, don't bother to make dinner. [ ... ] Fourth, make sure Mr. Johnson's ready for action. I'm going to attack you the minute I walk in the door, my love, so be prepared. #Quote by Paul Auster
Darkness Around Me quotes by Jennifer L. Armentrout
#43. Aiden smirked. "Wonder what this one is called?"
The hellhound's ears twitched as the massive body lowered preparing for attack. I slid my hand to the middle of the blade, feeling my heart pound and the adrenaline kick my system into overdrive. In the pit of my stomach, the cord started to unravel.
I swallowed. "Let's call this one ... Toto."
Three mouths opened in a growl that sent a cold chill down my spine, and a wave of hot, fetid breath smacked into us. Bile burned the back of my throat.
"I guess it doesn't like the name," I said, moving slowly to the right.
Aiden's powerful body tensed. "Here, Toto ... " One head snapped in his direction. "That's a good Toto."
I slipped around the ancient cross, creeping up on the hellhound from the right. The middle and left head focused on me, snapping and growlying.
Aiden clucked his tongue. "Come on, Toto, I'm pretty tasty. #Quote by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Darkness Around Me quotes by Anonymous
#44. Do Not Judge 7:1 "Do not judge so that you will not be judged.1 7:2 For by the standard you judge you will be judged, and the measure you use will be the measure you receive.2 7:3 Why3 do you see the speck4 in your brother's eye, but fail to see5 the beam of wood6 in your own? 7:4 Or how can you say7 to your brother, 'Let me remove the speck from your eye,' while there is a beam in your own? 7:5 You hypocrite! First remove the beam from your own eye, and then you can see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye. 7:6 Do not give what is holy to dogs or throw your pearls before pigs; otherwise they will trample them under their feet and turn around and tear you to pieces.8 #Quote by Anonymous
Darkness Around Me quotes by Brittany Snow
#45. A misperception about anorexia is that you don't eat. Not true. Maybe you eat just 500 calories a day. It would be easy for me to say, 'Why didn't my parents notice?' But I didn't want them to. I made sure to eat half a sandwich around my parents. #Quote by Brittany Snow
Darkness Around Me quotes by Joseph Bruchac
#46. I spoke to Massasoit, the sachem of the Pokanoket, as a pniese should, with respect and honor. "Befriend the English," I said. "Make them come to understand and support our people."
Massasoit did not listen at first. He watched silently through that winter.
Then Samoset came to visit. He was a sachem of the Pemaquid people, who lived farther up the coast. He had done much trading with the English. He knew some of their language.
"Let me talk with the Songlismoniak," he said to Massasoit, nodding to me as he spoke. Massasoit agreed.
The next day, March 16th of 1621, Samoset strode into the English settlement.
"Welcome, English," he said in their tongue. He showed them the two arrows in his hand. One had a flint arrowhead, the other had the arrowhead removed. The arrows symbolized what we offered them, either war or peace.
The English placed a coat about his shoulders to warm him. They invited him into one of their houses. They gave him small water, biscuits and butter, pudding and cheese.
"The food was so good," Samoset said to me later, laughing as he spoke, "I decided to spend the night."
When he left the next day, he promised to return with a friend who spoke their language well.
So it was that five days later, on the 22nd of March, I walked with Samoset back into my own village. Once Patuxet, now it was Plymouth. I looked around me. Though much was changed, I knew that I at last had returned to the land of my home.
"Perhaps #Quote by Joseph Bruchac
Darkness Around Me quotes by Shelby Reed
#47. When she lifted her head to meet his gaze, his eyes were closed, lashes like inky brushstrokes on his cheeks. His palms came up to cup the sides of her neck, and with a shaky sigh, he rested his forehead against hers.
"I'll let you go, Billie." His words poured against her lips, husky, raw. "I always keep my end of a deal. In exchange, you'll come to Avalon as a client. Tomorrow. This week. Walk through those doors and send for me. I'll be whatever you want. I'll take you up to my room and turn you inside out. I'll taste and touch and fuck you until you scream. And if you want control, it's yours. A favor for a favor."
She clung to him to keep from collapsing, torn between tears and wild, wayward laughter. The scenario was unreal. And the only argument she could think of was a frail one, easily shot down. "Azure would never allow - "
"It's as good as done. I'll put you in the book myself. Maria will call you with the date, and I'll keep my distance from you until then." His lips brushed her ear. "Please, Billie. Let's end this before it kills us both. Say yes."
The truth wrapped itself around her. You're hopelessly in love with this man, aren't you, Billie Cort?
"Yes," Billie said, squeezing her eyes closed. "God, yes. #Quote by Shelby Reed

Darkness Around Me quotes by David Lee
#49. I was 23, and I was in L.A. while on hiatus [as an understudy] from Biloxi Blues on Broadway. The guy that I'd been studying with had been fired for horsing around on stage with Matthew Broderick, and they were really anxious to get me back into the play. So I was in a great situation, and at the time, I definitely wasn't thinking about television #Quote by David Lee
