We say among friends, or among enemies, amidst the woods, amid the shadows. In the midst of may have merely the local meaning; as, I found myself in the midst of a crowd; or it may express even closer association than among; as, "I found myself in the midst of friends" suggests their pressing up on every side, oneself the central object; so, "where two or three are met together in my name, there am I in the midst of them," Matt. xviii, 20; in which case it would be feebler to say "among them," impossible to say "amid them," not so well to say "amidst them."

  2. Mrs Messmer:

    ‘I assure you that I will do my best to tell everyone who I speak to about the play how Fritz really was. Do you actually believe that an idiot could ever become a doctor or a dentist? I don’t. Have you ever thought about why Fritz became a complainer during the hiding period? Until the betrayal, you and the van Pels family were all together and could share your burden. Fritz was a stranger among you. Certainly you must have known how much he worried about his wife. He was all alone.’

  3. Arthur Rimbaud:

    The first study for the man who wants to be a poet is knowledge of himself, complete: he searches for his soul, he inspects it, he puts it to the test, he learns it. As soon as he has learned it, he must cultivate it! I say that one must be a seer, make oneself a seer. The poet becomes a seer through a long, immense, and reasoned derangement of all the senses. All shapes of love suffering, madness. He searches himself, he exhausts all poisons in himself, to keep only the quintessences. Ineffable torture where he needs all his faith, all his superhuman strength, where he becomes among all men the great patient, the great criminal, the great accursed one--and the supreme Scholar! For he reaches the unknown! ....So the poet is actually a thief of Fire!”

  4. Eric Rassbach:
