Top Strangers We Met Quotes

Strangers We Met Quotes By Boris Pasternak

They loved each other because everything around them willed it, the trees, and the clouds, and the sky over their heads, and the earth under their feet. Perhaps their surrounding world, the strangers they met in the street, the landscapes drawn up for them to see on their walks, the rooms in which they lived and loved, were even more pleased with their love than they were themselves. — Boris Pasternak

Strangers We Met Quotes By W.B.Yeats

There are no strangers, only friends you have not met yet. — W.B.Yeats

Strangers We Met Quotes By Taona Dumisani Chiveneko

MUSHAKABVU, I may be in a tough spot, but I am more worried about you. I have never experienced anything close to a sense of kinship with any of my clients, let alone those I have never met. However, the world you sent me to investigate has inspired a selfless concern that is uncommon between strangers. I hope you are just a curious, distant observer in the affairs I have been probing ... But something tells me this hope was frustrated long before our acquaintance. — Taona Dumisani Chiveneko

Strangers We Met Quotes By L.J. Kane

Whenever you're feeling lonely, remember that there are people in this world who bless every one of us before they go to sleep at night. They may have never met you, but their hearts go out to you. They are true angels. — L.J. Kane

Strangers We Met Quotes By Terence Tao

Unsolicited surprise requests from strangers are essentially guaranteed to be met with a negative response. — Terence Tao

Strangers We Met Quotes By David Foster Wallace

It is difficult to describe how it feels to gaze at living human beings whom you've seen perform in hard-core porn. To shake the hand of a man whose precise erectile size, angle, and vasculature are known to you. That strange I-think-we've-met-before sensation one feels upon seeing any celebrity in the flesh is here both intensified and twisted. It feels intensely twisted to see reigning industry queen Jenna Jameson chilling out at the Vivid booth in Jordaches and a latex bustier and to know already that she has a tattoo of a sundered valentine with the tagline HEART BREAKER on her right buttock and a tiny hairless mole just left of her anus. To watch Peter North try to get a cigar lit and to have that sight backlit by memories of his artilleryesque ejaculations.13 To have seen these strangers' faces in orgasm - that most unguarded and purely neural of expressions, the one so vulnerable that for centuries you basically had to marry a person to get to see it. — David Foster Wallace

Strangers We Met Quotes By Robert Graves

Haunted Gulp down your wine, old friends of mine, Roar through the darkness, stamp and sing And lay ghost hands on everything, But leave the noonday's warm sunshine To living lads for mirth and wine. I met you suddenly down the street, Strangers assume your phantom faces, You grin at me from daylight places, Dead, long dead, I'm ashamed to greet Dead men down the morning street. — Robert Graves

Strangers We Met Quotes By Andre Aciman

And on that evening when we grow older still we'll speak about these two young men as though they were two strangers we met on the train and whom we admire and want to help along. And we'll want to call it envy, because to call it regret would break our hearts. — Andre Aciman

Strangers We Met Quotes By Phil Jourdan

Maybe people are strangers because time makes them strangers, not because you don't know them, and people you've never met are strangers because you've spent so long not knowing them. — Phil Jourdan

Strangers We Met Quotes By Vanna Bonta

It's weird how people who are the least close to me or who've never even met me purport to be experts on the real me; and then, sadly, there are those who could be in touch with me but prefer to gossip with strangers about me instead. — Vanna Bonta

Strangers We Met Quotes By Abraham Lincoln

Think of strangers as friends you not met yet. — Abraham Lincoln

Strangers We Met Quotes By J. Mark Bertrand

We met with more closed doors than open ones
and the people who answered our knocks were invariably older. Young people didn't aswner the door to strangers, who would undoubtedly be trying to sell something, any more than they would answer the telephone to telemarketers once Caller ID came along. The only people we encountered going door-to-door were the ones old enough to remember when that's the way the world worked. — J. Mark Bertrand

Strangers We Met Quotes By Mike Fontenot

There's no feeling as a musician better than being on stage, sharing music with strangers. People you have never met, singing along, and making that connection with somebody is so awesome. — Mike Fontenot

Strangers We Met Quotes By Roald Dahl

There are no strangers in here, just friends you haven't met ... — Roald Dahl

Strangers We Met Quotes By A.J. Compton

I loved him before I knew him. I missed him before I met him. We were soulmates long before we were strangers. — A.J. Compton

Strangers We Met Quotes By Chloe Thurlow

I understood how strangers met and fell into bed, not how they met and fell in love. I wasn't sure what falling in love meant. The very notion seemed so corny, so arbitrary, so fragile. — Chloe Thurlow

Strangers We Met Quotes By William Butler Yeats

There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven't yet met. — William Butler Yeats

Strangers We Met Quotes By W. Somerset Maugham

They were talking more distantly than if they were strangers who had just met, for if they had been he would have been interested in her just because of that, and curious, but their common past was a wall of indifference between them. Kitty knew too well that she had done nothing to beget her father's affection, he had never counted in the house and had been taken for granted, the bread-winner who was a little despised because he could provide no more luxuriously for his family; but she had taken for granted that he loved her just because he was her father, and it was a shock to discover that his heart was empty of feeling for her. She had known that they were all bored by him, but it had never occurred to her that he was equally bored by them. He was as ever kind and subdued, but the sad perspicacity which she had learnt in suffering suggested to her that, though he probably never acknowledged it to himself and never would, in his heart he disliked her. — W. Somerset Maugham

Strangers We Met Quotes By Sherry Thomas

There was an intimate connection between them, as if they'd known each other always. They were not strangers; they'd merely never met before. — Sherry Thomas

Strangers We Met Quotes By Padgett Powell

If the observation were made to you that "Strangers become intimate, and as intimacy grows they lower their guards and less mind their manners until errors are made, which decreases intimacy until estrangement exceeds that which existed before the strangers ever met," would you be inclined to agree? — Padgett Powell

Strangers We Met Quotes By Scotty McCreery

Somebody described it to me the best as when you go in to write a song with two people that you've never met, you're pretty much going in and taking off your pants in front of strangers, so it's a really weird feeling. — Scotty McCreery

Strangers We Met Quotes By Karina Halle

That's the beauty of traveling. Haven't you caught on yet? There are no strangers here, just friends you haven't met yet. — Karina Halle

Strangers We Met Quotes By Mac Anderson

By the choices we make, by the attitudes we exhibit, we are influencing lives every day in positive or negative ways ... our family, our peers, our friends, and even strangers we've never met before and will never meet again. So when you brush your teeth every morning, look in the mirror and ask yourself ... 'Are there things I'd like to change?' — Mac Anderson

Strangers We Met Quotes By Banana Yoshimoto

Akira often gets mad at me because he thinks I'm too nice to strangers, and cold as a fish at home. What can I do? He's right, but that's the way I am. I'm more enthusiastic about people I've just met, whom I barely know at all, than with old friends. Before the awkwardness of a new acquaintance has worn off, I'm ready to offer myself up to that person. — Banana Yoshimoto

Strangers We Met Quotes By Mark Haddon

I do not like strangers because I do not like people I have never met before. They are hard to understand. — Mark Haddon

Strangers We Met Quotes By J.R.R. Tolkien

That is the purpose for which you are called hither. Called, is say, though I have not called you to me, strangers from distant lands. You have come and are here met, in this very nick of time, by chance as it may seem. Yet it is not so. Believe rather that it is so ordered that we, who sit here, and none others, must now find counsel for the peril of the world. — J.R.R. Tolkien

Strangers We Met Quotes By Lionel Shriver

In the big picture I write for an audience of people I've never met. By the final draft I'm looking for anything in the prose that's prospectively boring to strangers. — Lionel Shriver

Strangers We Met Quotes By Cheryl Strayed

Most of the people I met on the PCT passed only briefly through my life, but I was enriched by each of them. They made me laugh they made me think, they made me go on another day, and most of all, they made me trust entirely in the kindness of strangers. — Cheryl Strayed

Strangers We Met Quotes By Laurell K. Hamilton

Would you truly sleep with strangers?" "I don't know, I haven't met the strangers yet. — Laurell K. Hamilton

Strangers We Met Quotes By Elle Fanning

I get a lot of butterflies at auditions because I get so scared. It's scary because you've never met the people before. You have to meet them, and you have to hurry up and get to know them in five seconds. And then, you have to spill your emotions out to these strangers. It's funny. — Elle Fanning

Strangers We Met Quotes By Rebecca Solnit

Listen: you are not yourself, you are crowds of others, you are as leaky a vessel as was ever made, you have spent vast amounts of your life as someone else, as people who died long ago, as people who never lived, as strangers you never met. The usual I we are given has all the tidy containment of the kind of character the realist novel specializes in and none of the porousness of our every waking moment, the loose threads, the strange dreams, the forgettings and misrememberings, the portions of a life lived through others' stories, the incoherence and inconsistency, the pantheon of dei ex machina and the companionability of ghosts. There are other ways of telling. — Rebecca Solnit

Strangers We Met Quotes By Madeleine L'Engle

And you, behind the footlight's lure,
Kissing an actress on the stage,
Will leave her presence there, I'm sure,
As I my people on the page.
And yet - I love you, darling, yet
I sat with someone at a table
And gloried in our minds that met
As sometimes strangers' minds are able
To leap the bounds of times and spaces
And find, in sharing wine and bread
And light in one another's faces
And in the words that each has said
An intercourse so intimate
It shook me deeply, to the core.
I said good-night, for it was late;
We parted at my hotel door
And I went in, turned down the bed
And took my bath and thought of you ... — Madeleine L'Engle

Strangers We Met Quotes By Sheryl Lee

It's awkward: Here you are with most of your clothes off in bed with this person who you've really just met. You're strangers to each other's bodies and you're coming together for the first time in front of all these people. — Sheryl Lee

Strangers We Met Quotes By F.K. Preston

A death in reverse is the rewinding of life. I do not die of old age,
in a bed surrounded by strangers my loved ones paid to take care of me.
I die in reverse.
I die falling back
into a younger age.
From my forty-five years to twenty-five.
To sixteen. When we were in love.
To fourteen: when we first met.
To five.
To one.
To the hospital my mother died at
from the complications of my existence.
A life for a life. — F.K. Preston

Strangers We Met Quotes By Will Rogers

Strangers are just friends I haven't met yet. — Will Rogers

Strangers We Met Quotes By Jennifer Chiaverini

Two quilters who have just met will be strangers only until their mutual passion for quilting is revealed. Then they can talk for hours like the best of friends. — Jennifer Chiaverini

Strangers We Met Quotes By Adhish Mazumder

Yes I have done it all. Tested the shallow waters, swam through the dangerous tides, met strangers, seen friends turn strangers, taken risks to achieve my goals, persevered to out do myself each time, rose high, fell hard, learned to climb, learned to dream and in dreaming learned to relate to reality.
I have earned respect, achieved things very young, believed in my potential, questioned it too but through it all I have never stopped to aspire. I am a human and I must adapt to the changing seasons, learn new skills and master them all.
Now as I stand and look up, I see a heap of laurels yet to achieve and chest of mysteries yet to resolve. I am not one in the crowd. I'll forever be the one whom they could never be — Adhish Mazumder

Strangers We Met Quotes By Tegan Quin

We're strangers, we're not friends. I hate this, and I hate them.And I found out that you're angry, and you're sorry you ever met me — Tegan Quin

Strangers We Met Quotes By Samuel R. Delany

My family trained me to be polite to people I had just met, and that included strangers. You speak when you're spoken to. You look people in the eye when they address you and when you address them back. — Samuel R. Delany

Strangers We Met Quotes By Princess Aurora

Well, I'm really not supposed to speak to strangers, but we've met before. — Princess Aurora

Strangers We Met Quotes By Leo Tolstoy

The two girls used to meet several times a day, and every time they met, Kitty's eyes said: "Who are you? What are you? Are you really the exquisite creature I imagine you to be? But for goodness' sake don't suppose," her eyes added, "that I would force my acquaintance on you, I simply admire you and like you."
"I like you too, and you're very, very sweet. And I should like you better still, if I had time," answered the eyes of the unknown girl. — Leo Tolstoy
