Touch Quotes

After life's fitful fever he sleeps well. Treason has done his worst. Nor steel nor poison, malice domestic, foreign levy, nothing can touch him further.

William Shakespeare

The thrifty maxim of the wary Dutch, Is to save all the Money they can touch.

Benjamin Franklin

The whole fauna of human fantasies, their marine vegetation, drifts and luxuriates in the dimly lit zones of human activity, as though plaiting thick tresses of darkness. Here, too, appear the lighthouses of the mind, with their outward resemblance to less pure symbols. The gateway to mystery swings open at the touch of human weakness and we have entered the realms of darkness. One false step, one slurred syllable together reveal a man's thoughts.

Louis Aragon

Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.

Edith Sitwell

Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America;These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve

George W. Bush

Love must not touch the marrow of the soul. Our affections must be breakable chains that we can cast them off or tighten them.

Euripides

Love consists in this, that two solitudes protect and touch and greet each other

Rainer Maria Rilke

He could not forget the touch of her arms around his neck, impatiently felt as it had been at the time; but now the recollection of her clinging defence of him, seemed to thrill him through and through,--to melt away every resolution, all power of self-control, as if it were wax before a fire

Elizabeth Gaskell

What is love, Does anyone know, Is it what twinkles between our toes, Can we not see it with our own eyes, Can we not hear its whisper with our own ears, Can we not touch it with our own skin, No we can not, Because true love comes from you, Within

Scott William Emminger

You are meant to play the ball as it lies, a fact that may help to touch on your own objective approach to life.

Grantland Rice

"Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life." "In God's wildness lies the hope of the world - the great fresh, unblighted, unredeemed wilderness." "I only went out for a walk, and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in." "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves." "Wilderness is not only a haven for native plants and animals but it is also a refuge from society. Its a place to go to hear the wind and little else, see the stars and the galaxies, smell the pine trees, feel the cold water, touch the sky and the ground at the same time, listen to coyotes, eat the fresh snow, walk across the desert sands, and realize why its good to go outside of the city and the suburbs. Fortunately, there is wilderness just outside the limits of the cities and the suburbs in most of the United States, especially in the West."

John Muir

The old people came literally to love the soil and they sat or reclined on the ground with a feeling of being close to a mothering power. It was good for the skin to touch the earth and the old people liked to remove their moccasins and walk with bare feet on the sacred Earth. Their tipis were built upon the earth and their altars were made of earth. The birds that flew into the air came to rest upon the earth and it was the final abiding place of all things that lived and grew. The soil was soothing, strengthening, cleansing and healing

Luther Standing Bear

Efficiency of a practically flawless kind may be reached naturally in the struggle for bread. But there is something beyond a higher point, a subtle and unmistakable touch of love and pride beyond mere skill; almost an inspiration which gives to all work that finish which is almost art which is art.

Joseph Conrad

When you put your hand in a flowing stream, you touch the last that has gone before and the first of what is still to come

Leonardo da Vinci

He had a sensation of anxiety and shame, a sensitivity acute beyond usefulness, as if the nervous system, flayed of its old hide of social usage, must record every touch of pain

John Updike
