29 Dark Quotes That Are Deep And Amazingly Relatable

Dark

When the going gets tough and the days become dark, don't forget why you started. Don't let the gloominess of the night make you give up after working so hard to get to the point you are at. Think of where you are going and how fulfilling it will all be to reach there. Let that encourage you to take one more step ahead.

No one said it would be easy. Every journey has dark days. You will have moments when giving up is easier and going on doesn't make sense. Dark times will try to derail you and get you off the path. Some days you will have no more energy left within you.

But don't give in because you have to make it. That's why you are still here, breathing and with that heart beating. Here are dark quotes to relate to when things get dark.

In the dark beside me, she smelled of sweat and sunshine and vanilla, and on that thin-mooned night I could see little more than her silhouette except for when she smoked, when the burning cherry of the cigarette washed her face in pale red light. But even in the dark, I could see her eyes - fierce emeralds.

Gabrielle: Uncle John, I've heard the stories. I know you've been through a lot. But my world is a lot different from yours. Rambo: No, it's not. It's worse. Gabrielle: No, it's not. People don't just act bad for no reason. Rambo: There's no reason for a man to throw his family away. He's lucky he has one. Gabrielle: Why are you getting so mad? Rambo: Because you don't know how bad it is. I know how black a man's heart can be. There's nothing good out there, Gabrielle. Gabrielle: Well, maybe he's changed. Rambo: Men like that don't change. It only gets worse. Gabrielle: You changed. Rambo: I haven't changed. I'm just trying to keep a lid on it, every day.

What a thing this sleeplessness was!...If sleep, she thought, could be compared to a gentle lake ina dark place, the sleeplessness was a roaring ocean, a raging, wind-buffeted voyage, lit with mad rocket-lights, pursued by wild phantoms from behind, plunging upon fearful rocks ahead, a mad tempest of the past and present and future all in one. Through all this the pale, strenuous mariner must somehow steer a way, until at last the weary dawn, not of sleep, but of resignation to sleeplessness, comes to calm the waters of the mind.

I haven’t been out driving at this time of night in many years, much less in an unfamiliar area. These are the things that scare you as you get older. You understand night all too well, all its attendant meanings. You try to avoid it, work around it, keep it from entering your house. Your weary, ornery body tells you to stay up late, sleep less, keep the lights on, don’t go into the bedroom—if you have to sleep, sleep in your chair, at the table. Everything is about avoiding the night. Because of that, I suppose that I should be scared out here in the dark, but I am finally past that, I think.
