Breath Quotes

His element is so fine being sharpened by his death, to drink from the wine-breath while our gross palates drink from the whole wine.

W.B.Yeats

I find myself at the extremity of a long beach. How gladly does the spirit leap forth, and suddenly enlarge its sense of being to the full extent of the broad, blue, sunny deep! A greeting and a homage to the Sea! I descend over its margin, and dip my hand into the wave that meets me, and bathe my brow. That far-resounding roar is the Ocean's voice of welcome. His salt breath brings a blessing along with it

Nathaniel Hawthorne

The values a man must cherish as his life-breath are, Truth, Righteousness, Peace, Love and Non violence.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba

You have a choice. Live or die. Every breath is a choice. Every minute is a choice. To be or not to be.

Chuck Palahniuk

It's really easy to blow. Other call-makers, it takes a lot of breath to finish a long routine, and you run out of breath before the end.

Andrew Boston

While democracy must have its organizations and controls, its vital breath is individual liberty

Charles Evans Hughes

Space is the breath of art.

Frank Lloyd Wright

Test every work of intellect or faith, And everything that your own hands have wrought And call those works extravagance of breath That are not suited for such men as come proud, open-eyed and laughing to the tomb.

William Butler Yeats

To take photographs is to hold one's breath when all faculties converge in the face of fleeing reality. It is at that moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.

Henri Cartier Bresson

For a transitory enchanted moment man must have held his breath in the presence of this continent, compelled into an aesthetic contemplation he neither understood nor desired, face to face for the last time in history with something commensurate to his capacity for wonder.

F. Scott Fitzgerald

Your words are my food, your breath my wine. You are everything to me

Sarah Bernhardt

The custom of saluting i.e., embracing ladies by their relatives and friends was introduced, it is said, by the early Romans, not out of respect originally, but to find by their breath whether they had been drinking wine, this being criminal for women to do, as it sometimes led to adultery.

Joseph Haydn

In the same breath, one might add that the atheist is surely as religious as the Christian, in that he has adopted a set of beliefs to which he chooses to rigorously adhere. While its temptingly clever to make that claim, it is a nonsensical statement; no more logical than to say that a Christian is a type of atheist. Having a set of beliefs about religion is not the same as being a religious True Believer.

Derren Victor Brown

All your thoughts are in another head. Your dreams are sleepin' in a different bed. The force that moves you is a circular breath of life and death going round and round and round.

Edie Brickell

This Being of mine, whatever it really is, consists of a little flesh, a little breath, and the part which governs

Marcus Aurelius Antoninus

Bring forward what is true, Write it so that it is clear, Defend it to your last breath!

Ludwig Eduard Boltzmann

When a thought takes one's breath away, a lesson in grammar seems an impertinence.

Thomas W Higginson

What is stronger than a mother's love? The smell of spring onions on your girl's breath.

Unknown

Drink today, and drown all sorrow; You shall perhaps not do it tomorrow; Best, while you have it, use your breath; There is no drinking after death

Ben Jonson

It is true ... that the English in general, and indeed most of the men of learning in Europe, have given up all accounts of witches and apparitions as mere old wives' fables. I am sorry for it, and I willingly take this opportunity of entering my solemn protest against this violent compliment which so many that believe the Bible pay to those who do not believe it. I owe them no such service. I take knowledge that these are at the bottom of the outcry which has been raised, and with such insolence spread through the land, in direct opposition, not only to the Bible, but to the suffrage of the wisest and the best of men in all ages and nations. They well know (whether Christians know it or not) that the giving up of witchcraft is in effect giving up the Bible. With my latest breath I will bear testimony against giving up to infidels one great proof of the invisible world; I mean that of witchcraft and apparitions, confirmed by the testimony of all ages.

JOHN WESLEY

It is a very busy mission: every day has some major goals that we have to get through, but my experience before has been that at least in the evening, you kind of take a deep breath and look around where you are and have some downtime.

Linda M. Godwin

Actors worry about bad breath, weight, receding hairlines and why their leading lady looks like their daughter.

Matthew Ashford

Last night, ah, yesternight, betwixt her lips and mine There fell thy shadow, Cynara! thy breath was shed Upon my soul between the kisses and the wine; And I was desolate and sick of an old passion, Yea, I was desolate and bowed my head: I have been faithful to thee, Cynara! in my fashion.

Ernest Dowson

Stress is basically a disconnection from the earth, a forgetting of the breath. Stress is an ignorant state. It believes that everything is an emergency. Nothing is that important. Just lie down.

Natalie Goldberg
