Quote of the Day
Hope is like the sun, which, as we journey toward it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us.
Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.
This life, which had been the tomb of his virtue and of his honour, is but a walking shadow; a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
I define a 'good person' as somebody who is fully conscious of their own limitations. They know their strengths, but they also know their 'shadow' - they know their weaknesses. In other words, they understand that there is no good without bad. Good and evil are really one, but we have broken them up in our consciousness. We polarize them.
Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
I don't need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better.
Friendship is the shadow of the evening, which increases with the setting sun of life.
Jean de La Fontaine

The beginnings and ends of shadow lie between the light and darkness and may be infinitely diminished and infinitely increased. Shadow is the means by which bodies display their form. The forms of bodies could not be understood in detail but for shadow.
Leonardo da Vinci
Evil is the shadow of angel. Just as there are angels of light, support, guidance, healing and defense, so we have experiences of shadow angels. And we have names for them: racism, sexism, homophobia are all demons - but they're not out there.
There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition.
False friends are like our shadow, keeping close to us while we walk in the sunshine, but leaving us the instant we cross into the shade.
Christian Nestell Bovee
Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.
We are involved in youth testing internationally. We want to try to prove without a shadow of a doubt the relationship between physical fitness and health, not just physical fitness and ability to perform.
Kenneth H. Cooper
It's very easy to say that something is a shadow of itself, and it may be true in some senses.

Technology has a shadow side. It accounts for real progress in medicine, but has also hurt it in many ways, making it more impersonal, expensive and dangerous.

The very substance of the ambitious is merely the shadow of a dream.
My dark side, my shadow, my lower companion is now in the back room blowing up balloons for kids' parties.

C. S. Lewis
John F. Kennedy
