Famous quotes containing the word baffled:

    I am disgraced, impeached, and baffled here,
    Pierced to the soul with slander’s venomed spear.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    That is where they live:
    Not here and now, but where all happened once.
    This is why they give
    An air of baffled absence, trying to be there
    Yet being here.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    What a perpetual disappointment is actual society, even of the virtuous and gifted! After interviews have been compassed with long foresight, we must be tormented presently by baffled blows, by sudden, unseasonable apathies, by epilepsies of wit and of animal spirits, in the heyday of friendship and thought. Our faculties do not play us true, and both parties are relieved by solitude.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
