The true genius shudders at incompleteness - and usually prefers silence to saying something which is not everything it should be.
— Edgar Allan Poe

Our dreams are a second life. I have never been able to penetrate without a shudder those ivory or horned gates which separate us from the invisible world.
Gerard De Nerval shuddered quote

Russia, France, Germany and China. They revere their writers. America is still a frontier country that almost shudders at the idea of creative expression.
— James A. Michener

Shuddering under the autumn stars, each year, the head sinks lower and lower.
— Georg Trakl

Some day there is going to be a man sitting in my present chair who has not been raised in the military services and who will have little understanding of where slashes in their estimates can be made with little or no damage. If that should happen while we still have the state of tension that now exists in the world, I shudder to think of what could happen in this country
— shuddered quotation by Dwight D. Eisenhower
