Patrick Rothfuss

Mirrors should think longer before they reflect. Jean Cocteau

I thought about the word profile and what a weird double meaning it had. We say we’re looking at a person’s profile online, or say a newspaper is writing a profile on someone, and we assume it’s the whole them we’re seeing. But when a photographer takes a picture of a profile, you’re only seeing half the face. It’s never the way you would remember seeing them. You never remember someone ‘in profile. You remember them looking you in the eye, or talking to you. You remember an image that the subject could never see in a mirror, because you are the mirror. A profile, photographically, is perpendicular to the person you know. David Levithan

Just as the sun in the heaven is unchanged, but is mirrored as a thousand suns in ponds, lakes, rivers, and oceans, so do you know the Sun of the Spirit within you from the broken reflections that you find in the lower self. Annie Besant

Her eyes were of different colors, the left as brown as autumn, the right as gray as Atlantic wind. Both seemed alive with questions that would never be voiced, as if no words yet existed with which to frame them. She was nineteen years old, or thereabouts; her exact age was unknown. Her face was as fresh as an apple and as delicate as blossom, but a marked depression in the bones beneath her left eye gave her features a disturbing asymmetry. Her mouth never curved into a smile. God, it seemed, had withheld that possibility, as surely as from a blind man the power of sight. He had withheld much else. Amparo was touched by genius, by madness, by the Devil, or by a conspiracy of all these and more. She took no sacraments and appeared incapable of prayer. She had a horror of clocks and mirrors. By her own account she spoke with Angels and could hear the thoughts of animals and trees. She was passionately kind to all living things. She was a beam of starlight trapped in flesh and awaiting only the moment when it would continue on its journey into forever. Tim Willocks

A broken mirror is good luck if you want it to be. Marty Rubin

A mirror becomes a razor when it’s broken. Yoko Ono

If all men are made in God’s reflection, then why do some people continue to acknowledge only what is in their part of the mirror? If every man was created equal and in the image of God, then how can any man claim that one race is better than another? Suzy Kassem

But being the mirrors for each other’s souls has a cost by the time they part from each other, the individuals in the mating pair have become indistinguishable.

The inventor of the mirror poisoned the human heart. Fernando Pessoa

Long ago we conquered our passions looking at ourselves in the mirror of eternity. Dejan Stojanovic

Conscience is the mirror of our souls. George Bancroft

People often ask If there’s a God, how can He allow so much suffering in the world? Realize all world suffering you perceive is a mirror to your own psychological self abuse, gender imbalance, prejudice, poverty, and hunger. You couldn’t even perceive each suffering aspect of external reality if it didn’t already exist within you. Touch and transmute your own psychological suffering, and perceive the world in kind. Alexandra Katehakis

I had a dream about you. You were on a bike going 70 miles an hour, I could see you approaching my car in the mirror. You were trying to say something so, I jumped on the brakes as hard as I could, I guess I forgot I had tied your bike on my bumper. Georgia Saratsioti

To live in prison is to live without mirrors. Margaret Atwood

A lot of corpses woke up every morning from their graves. Stood in front of the mirror and wore the masks which made them look alive. Stuck in the vicious circle of death. Scared to break out and scared of falling into the infinite pit of darkness, they beat down their souls that were fighting for an escape, mercilessly every day. They walked out into the world with pain, only to return back to the home, which did not feel like a home anymore, again in the night. They removed their masks in front of the mirror, stared into those empty eyes and walked back to their graves silently, with the fear of waking up again next day and with nothing to celebrate in their heart. Akshay Vasu

I’ve only been in love with a beer bottle and a mirror. Sid Vicious

Your mother says you’ve never passed a mirror you didn’t like. It’s true, in a way. It’s not that you’re vain; you’re concerned. Mirrors are opportunities. They’re random checkpoints throughout the day. Adam Gallari

In the business world, the rear view mirror is always clearer than the windshield. Warren Buffett

The fireworks went on for nearly half an hour, great pulsing strobes, fiery dandelions and starbursts of light brightening both sky and water.

Sol Luckman

There must be some kind of internal time distortion effect in here, because when I look at myself in the little mirror above my sink, what I see is my father’s face, my face turning into his. I am beginning to feel how the man looked, especially how he looked on those nights he came home so tired he couldn’t even make it through dinner without nodding off, sitting there with his bowl of soup cooling in front of him, a rich pork and winter melon saturated broth that, moment by moment, was losing or giving up its tiny quantum of heat into the vast average temperature of the universe. Charles Yu

The past is like a broken mirror you don’t remember but fleeting glimpses of it, sparse moments over many years, all combined in that distorted and fragmented picture.

There’s no cure for the Internet, you would never go away. Hector

I always thought the mirror was a strange gift. Would it not have been better to give me something useful, like silks or valuable, like jewels? But I think my husband always suspected that he would meet a violent end and leave me to face the world alone. He told me that should there ever come a time when I needed answers, I would find them in this.
