Refuge Quotations

The game of basketball has been everything to me. My place of refuge, place I've always gone where I needed comfort and peace. It's been the site of intense pain and the most intense feelings of joy and satisfaction. It's a relationship that has evolved over time, given me the greatest respect and love for the game.
Michael Jordan

Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
Maya Angelou

Racism is a refuge for the ignorant. It seeks to divide and to destroy. It is the enemy of freedom, and deserves to be met head-on and stamped out.
Pierre Berton

Education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity.
Aristotle

Ernest Hemingway
