I told you when I came I was a stranger. ~ Leonard Cohen

Strangers are people whom one does not know, and may in particular be outsiders, foreigners, or newcomers.


  • I told you when I came I was a stranger.
  • It's you my love, you who are the stranger.
  • Farewell to ye all! In the land of the stranger I rise or I fall.
    • Davy Crockett (att.), Col. Crockett's Exploits and Adventures in Texas, 1836, ch. 2
  • Oh my soul, be prepared for the coming of the Stranger.
    Be prepared for him who knows how to ask questions.
  • We die to each other daily.
    What we know of other people
    Is only our memory of the moments
    During which we knew them. And they have changed since then.
    To pretend that they and we are the same
    Is a useful and convenient social convention
    Which must sometimes broken. We must also remember
    That at every meeting we are meeting a stranger.
  • He wanted them to meet as the completest of strangers — strangers-across-the-seas — all the more strangers because they knew each other already. He wanted them to meet far from their friends and relatives — in a place without a past, without history, free, really free, two people coming together with the utter freedom of strangers.
  • For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
  • People far too easily neglect or abuse us, as soon as we become intimate with them. To live pleasantly, one must almost always remain a stranger in the crowd.
  • All colors and blends of Americans have somewhat the same tendencies. It's a breed — selected out by accident. And so we're overbrave and overfearful — we're kind and cruel as children. We're overfriendly and at the same time frightened of strangers.
  • Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place.
  • Passing stranger! you do not know how longingly I look upon you,
    You must be he I was seeking, or she I was seeking, (it comes to me
    as of a dream,)
    I have somewhere surely lived a life of joy with you,

From BibleWiki

This word generally denotes a person from a foreign land residing in Palestine. Such persons enjoyed many privileges in common with the Jews, but still were separate from them. The relation of the Jews to strangers was regulated by special laws (Deut 23:3; 24:14-21; 25:5; 26:10-13). A special signification is also sometimes attached to this word. In Gen 23:4 it denotes one resident in a foreign land; Ex 23:9, one who is not a Jew; Num 3:10, one who is not of the family of Aaron; Ps 698, an alien or an unknown person. The Jews were allowed to purchase strangers as slaves (Lev 25:44, 45), and to take usury from them (Deut 23:20).
