Famous quotes containing the word desolate:

    How many desolate creatures on the earth
    Have learnt the simple dues of fellowship
    And social comfort, in a hospital.
    Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806–1861)

    Life is a long Dardenelles, My Dear Madam, the shores whereof are bright with flowers, which we want to pluck, but the bank is too high; & so we float on & on, hoping to come to a landing-place at last—but swoop! we launch into the great sea! Yet the geographers say, even then we must not despair, because across the great sea, however desolate & vacant it may look, lie all Persia & the delicious lands roundabout Damascus.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Still let my tyrants know, I am not doomed to wear
    Year after year in gloom, and desolate despair;
    A messenger of Hope comes every night to me,
    And offers for short life, eternal liberty.
    Emily Brontë (1818–1848)
