Emily Dickinson

« All quotes from this author

DROWNING is not so pitiful
As the attempt to rise.
Three times, ít is said, a sinking man
Comes up to face the skies,
And then declines forever
To that abhorred abode
p. 50-51. Life.

You call me Mr. Pitiful;
Baby that's my name now, oh.
They call me Mr. Pitiful;
That's how I got my fame.
But people just don`t understand, now
What makes a man feel so blue, now
Ooh, they call me Mr. Pitiful;
Cause I lost someone just like you, now.

Otis Redding

The meeting points the sacred hair dissever
From the fair head, forever, and forever!
Then flashed the living lightning from her eyes,
And screams of horror rend th' affrighted skies.

Alexander Pope

Dirty Love wasn't written and directed, it was committed. Here is a film so pitiful, it doesn't rise to the level of badness. It is hopelessly incompetent... I am not certain that anyone involved has ever seen a movie, or knows what one is.

Roger Ebert

Behold him setting in his western skies,
The shadows lengthening as the vapours rise.

John Dryden

It is always pitiful when any human being falls into a condition hardly more respectable than that of an animal. How much more pitiful it is when the person who falls has had all the advantages!
