U G Krishnamurti
Suppressed grief suffocates, it rages within the breast, and is forced to multiply its strength.
It is amazing how complete is the delusion that beauty is goodness.
The beginnings and ends of shadow lie between the light and darkness and may be infinitely diminished and infinitely increased. Shadow is the means by which bodies display their form. The forms of bodies could not be understood in detail but for shadow.
Leonardo da Vinci
Part of every misery is, so to speak, the misery’s shadow or reflection: the fact that you don’t merely suffer but have to keep on thinking about the fact that you suffer. I not only live each endless day in grief but live each day thinking about living each day in grief.
C. S. Lewis
A human being is only breath and shadow.
I see that all of us who live are nothing but images or insubstantial shadow.
