Quote of the Day: Random Quotes from Literature

Quote of the Day: Random Quotes from Literature

Since I couldn’t find any quotes online from The Tragedy in the Commons, and I didn’t want to physically flip through each page looking for something good, I figured I would just give you random literature quotes I found.

Hope you enjoy.

P.S. Do you have any random literature quotes you like? Let me know in the comments.

Yes, I was a fool, but I was in love, and though I was suffering the greatest misery I had ever known I would not have had it otherwise for all the riches of Barsoom. Such is love, and such are lovers wherever love is known. – A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs

“You have been in every prospect I have ever seen since – on the river, on the sails of the ships, on the marshes, in the clouds, in the light, in the darkness, in the wind, in the woods, in the sea, in the streets. You have been the embodiment of every graceful fancy that my mind has ever become acquainted with. The stones of which the strongest London buildings are made, are not more real, or more impossible to be displaced by your hands, than your presence and influence have been to me, there and everywhere, and will be. Estella, to the last hour of my life, you cannot choose but remain part of my character, part of the little good in me, part of the evil. But, in this separation I associate you only with the good, and I will faithfully hold you to that always, for you must have done me far more good than harm, let me feel now what sharp distress I may. O God bless you, God forgive you!” – Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

The voice of the sea speaks to the soul. The touch of the sea is sensuous, enfolding the body in its soft, close embrace. – The Awakening by Kate Chopin

The fool wonders, the wise man asks. – Count Alarcos: A Tragedy by Benjamin Disraeli

The right time is ANY time that one is still so lucky as to have. – The Ambassadors by Henry James
