More From Herman Melville
- "In this world, shipmates, sin that pays its way can travel freely, and without passport; whereas Virtue, if a pauper, is stopped at all frontiers."
- "Faith, like a jackal, feeds among the tombs, and even from these dead doubts she gathers her most vital hope."
- "Old age is always wakeful; as if, the longer linked with life, the less man has to do with aught that looks like death."
More In Friendship
- "The building of friendship, family, community and love is complicated. We are so isolated in this country, no longer supported by tribes and villages."― Jasmine Guy
- "My parents, and librarians along the way, taught me about the space between words; about the margins, where so many juicy moments of life and spirit and friendship could be found. In a library, you could find miracles and truth and you might find something that would make you laugh so hard that you get shushed, in the friendliest way."― Anne Lamott
- "If it’s very painful for you to criticize your friends – you’re safe in doing it. But if you take the slightest pleasure in it, that’s the time to hold your tongue."― Alice Duer Miller
