Famous quotes containing the words personal life, personal, life and/or laden:

    The dialectic between change and continuity is a painful but deeply instructive one, in personal life as in the life of a people. To “see the light” too often has meant rejecting the treasures found in darkness.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    I know no personal cause to spurn at him,
    But for the general: he would be crowned.
    How that might change his nature, there’s the question.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    It often happens that the real tragedies of life occur in such an inartistic manner that they hurt us by their crude violence, their absolute incoherence, their absurd want of meaning, their entire lack of style.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers, and he bears a laden breast,
    Full of sad experience, moving towards the stillness of his rest.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)
