Dark Quotations

Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light. - Helen Keller
Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.
Helen Keller

Love myself I do. Not everything, but I love the good as well as the bad. I love my crazy lifestyle, and I love my hard discipline. I love my freedom of speech and the way my eyes get dark when I'm tired. I love that I have learned to trust people with my heart, even if it will get broken. I am proud of everything that I am and will become.
Johnny Weir

The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.
Robert Frost

We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.

My sorrow, when she's here with me, thinks these dark days of autumn rain are beautiful as days can be; she loves the bare, the withered tree; she walks the sodden pasture lane.
Robert Frost
