emptiness

A Quote by Alice Roosevelt Longworth on emptiness, philosophy, and simplicity

I have a simple philosophy. Fill what's empty. Empty what's full. And scratch where it itches.

A Quote by Alexander Sergeievich Pushkin on desires, dreams, emptiness, heart, and life

I've lived to bury my desires, And see my dreams corrode with rust; Now all that's left are fruitless fires That burn my empty heart to dust.

A Quote by Alexander Pope on age, books, children, emptiness, gold, laws, life, nature, play, prayer, and youth

Behold the child, by Nature's kindly law, Pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw; Some livelier plaything gives his youth delight, A little louder, but as empty quite; Scarfs, garters, gold, amuse his riper stage, And beads and prayer-books are the toys of age. Pleased with this bauble still, as that before, Till tired he sleeps, and life's poor play is o'er.

Alexander Pope (1688 - 1744)
