Darkness Quotes (2372 quotes)
What's in a name? That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet. There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so. This is the excellent foppery of the world, that when we are sick in fortune often the surfeits of our own behaviour we make guilty of our disasters the sun, the moon, and stars: as if we were villains on necessity; fools by heavenly compulsion; knaves, thieves, and treacherous by spherical predominance; drunkards, liars, and adulterers by an enforced obedience of planetary influence; and all that we are evil in, by a divine thrusting on. An admirable evasion of whoremaster man, to lay his goatish disposition on the charge of a star!
The prince of darkness is a gentleman! And oftentimes, to win us to our harm, The instruments of darkness tell us truths, Win us with honest trifles, to betray's In deepest consequence. I will be treble-sinewed, hearted, breathed, And fight maliciously; for when mine hours Were nice and lucky, men did ransom lives Of me for jests; but now I'll set my teeth And send to darkness all that stop me. Stars, hide your fires; Let not light see my black and deep desires. This thing of darkness I acknowlege mine. There is nothing more confining than the prison we don't know we are in.
