Literary quotations that sound better when yelled, presented without comment.
I WILL SHOW YOU FEAR IN A HANDFUL OF DUST
THIS IS THE WAY THE WORLD ENDS, NOT WITH A BANG BUT A WHIMPER
NO MAN IS AN ISLAND
THESE FRAGMENTS I HAVE SHORED AGAINST MY RUIN
NEVER SEND TO KNOW FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS; IT TOLLS FOR THEE
ABANDON ALL HOPE, YE WHO ENTER HERE
THE WORLD IS TOO MUCH WITH US
I AM THE MASTER OF MY FATE, I AM THE CAPTAIN OF MY SOUL
SURELY THE SECOND COMING IS AT HAND
ALL THAT WE SEE OR SEEM IS BUT A DREAM WITHIN A DREAM
WHO IS IT THAT CAN TELL ME WHO I AM?
WHAT’S DONE CANNOT BE UNDONE
THINGS FALL APART; THE CENTRE CANNOT HOLD
THIS IS THE HOUR OF LEAD
DO I DARE DISTURB THE UNIVERSE?
I SAW THE BEST MINDS OF MY GENERATION DESTROYED BY MADNESS
DO NOT GO GENTLE INTO THAT GOOD NIGHT
LOOK ON MY WORKS, YE MIGHTY, AND DESPAIR
