opposites Quotes

Six of the best book quotes about opposites
  1. #1
    “The moon is always jealous of the heat of the day, just as the sun always longs for something dark and deep.”
  2. #2
    “I noticed something about Finny’s own mind, which was such an opposite from mine. It wasn’t completely unleashed after all. I noticed that he did abide by certain rules, which he seemed to cast in the form of Commandments. ‘Never say you are five feet nine when you are five feet eight and a half’ was the first one I encountered.”
  3. #3
    “I felt fear’s echo, and along with that I felt the unhinged, uncontrollable joy which had been its accompaniment and opposite face, joy which had broken out sometimes in those days like Northern Lights across black sky.”
  4. #4
    “The worst things: To be in bed and sleep not, To want for one who comes not, To try to please and please not.”
  5. #5
    “HOW COULD anything originate out of its opposite? For example, truth out of error?
  6. #6
    “In spite of all the value which may belong to the true, the positive, and the unselfish, it might be possible that a higher and more fundamental value for life generally should be assigned to pretence, to the will to delusion, to selfishness, and cupidity. It might even be possible that WHAT constitutes the value of those good and respected things, consists precisely in their being insidiously related, knotted, and crocheted to these evil and apparently opposed things—perhaps even in being essentially identical with them.”
