A Lady’s Life in the Rocky Mountains by Isabella L. Bird
“Everything suggests a beyond”
“I have found a dream of beauty at which one might look all one’s life and sigh”
The Road to Wigan Pier by George Orwell
“To write books you need not only comfort and solitude—and solitude is never easy to attain in a working-class home—you also need piece of mind. You can’t settle in to anything, you can’t command the spirit of hope in which anything has got to be created, with that dull evil cloud of unemployment hanging over you.”
“…for, after all, we have nothing to lose but our aitches.”
“If there is one man to whom I do feel myself inferior, it is a coal-miner.”
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling
“According to Madam Pomfrey, thoughts could leave deeper scars than almost anything else.”
Mathilda by Mary Shelley
“My greatest pleasure was the enjoyment of a serene sky amidst these verdant woods: yet I loved all the changes of Nature; and rain, and storm, and the beautiful clouds of heaven brought their delights with them. When rocked by the waves of the lake my spirits rose in triumph as a horseman feels with pride the motions of his high fed steed.
But my pleasures arose from the contemplation of nature alone, I had no companion: my warm affections finding no return from any other human heart were forced to run waste on inanimate objects.”
