Quotes: Night

Night 513 "Now the old toll gatherer looks seaward, and discerns the light-house kindling on a far island, and the stars, too, kindling in the sky." Hawthorne: "The Toll-Gatherer's Day: A Sketch of Transitory Life”

Night 87 "The night had broken them into all the isolated units that actually they were." Mailer, The Naked and the Dead. The night brings a sense of isolation.
