Literary Quotations That Sound Better When Yelled

by Madeline Raynor

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
