Auric Goldfinger, Ch. 14 : Things That Go Thump In The Night
„It's the time of turning and there's something stirring outside.
It's the time of turning and the old world's falling.
Nothing you can do can stop by the next emerging.
Time of the turning and we'd better learn to say our goodbyes.“
— Peter Gabriel English singer-songwriter, record producer and humanitarian 1950
The Time of the Turning
„Everything that happens once can never happen again. But everything that happens twice will surely happen a third time.“
— Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
p. 184<!-- p. 162 -->; this also has been quoted as "What happens once will never happen again. But what happens twice will surely happen a third time."
„Old hates lie in wait for the infant
till he grows into a man.
Then they leap upon him
when he puts his father's coat on.
When the father's bones drop into the grave,
the lice flock up as the dark earth turns,
to feed on a son's guilt-love.
No man can look in his son's face,
for what was done to him, he does in turn,
and he carries the hate in his blood;
ghosts of times forgotten,
tragedies unseen, unspoken,wait in the past's proud flesh,
and nothing will shake them off.“
— Jane Roberts American Writer 1929 - 1984
„To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time for every purpose under heaven.“
