Quotes about impending


1. I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.
- Edgar Allan Poe

2. Impending doom, it was a familiar sweater, we all wore it and as scratchy as it felt against our skin, we kept it on.
- Holly Hood, Prison of Paradise
