A Quote by Alan Bennett on art, children, circumstances, losing, parenthood, and time

I was an only child. I lost both my parents. By the time I was twenty I was bald. I'm homosexual. In the way of circumstances and background to transcend I had everything an artist could possibly want. It was practically a blueprint.

Alan Bennett (1934 -)

A Quote by Al Gore on difficulty, enemies, environment, justice, struggle, time, victory, and war

The struggle to save the global environment is in one way much more difficult than the struggle to vanquish Hitler, for this time the war is with ourselves. We are the enemy, just as we have only ourselves as allies. In a war such as this, then, what is victory and how will we recognize it?

A Quote by Anna Letitia (Aikin) Barbauld on friendship, good, life, time, weather, together, pleasant, cloudy, metaphor, friends, sigh, tear, leaving, and farewell

Life! we've been long together, Through pleasant and through cloudy weather; 'Tis hard to part when friends are dear, Perhaps 'twill cost a sigh, a tear; Then steal away, give little warning; Choose thine own time; Say not 'Good-night'; but in some brighter clime Bid me 'Good-morning'.
