Herman Melville
Quotations

Our souls belong to our bodies, not our bodies to our souls.

Some dying men are the most tyrannical; and certainly, since they will shortly trouble us so little for evermore, the poor fellows ought to be indulged.

Faith, like a jackal, feeds among the tombs, and even from these dead doubts she gathers her most vital hope.

Let me look into a human eye; it is better than to gaze into sea or sky; better than to gaze upon God.

We may have civilized bodies and yet barbarous souls. We are blind to the real sights of this world; deaf to its voice; and dead to its death. And not till we know, that one grief outweighs ten thousand joys will we become what Christianity is striving to make us.

For whatever is truly wondrous and fearful in man, never yet was put into words or books.

Old age is always wakeful; as if, the longer linked with life, the less man has to do with aught that looks like death.
