Wind Quotes

Not only does the wind of accidents stir me according to its blowing, but I am also stirred and troubled by the instability of my attitude.

Michel de Montaigne

Absence is to love what wind is to fire; it extinguishes the small, it rekindles the great.

Comte DeBussy-Rabutin

The curfew tolls the knell of parting day, The lowing herd wind slowly o'er the lea, The ploughman homeward plods his weary way, And leaves the world to darkness and to me.

Thomas Gray

Better is a handful of rest than a double handful of hard work and striving after the wind.

Ecclesiastes

Absence is to love as wind is to fire; it extinguishes the small and kindles the great.

Roger de Bussy-Rabutin

No wind serves him who addresses his voyage to no certain port.

Montaigne

And I saw that all labor and all achievement spring from man's envy of his neighbor. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind. The fool folds his hands and ruins himself. Better one hand with tranquility than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind.

Stacy

Vegetarianism is harmless enough, though it is apt to fill a man with wind and self-righteousness.

The wind of heaven is that which blows between a horse's ears.

Arabian Proverb

To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it ? but we must sail and not drift, nor lie at anchor.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

If a seperate personal Paradise exists for each of us mine must irreparably be planted with trees of words which the wind silvers like poplars, by people who see their confiscated justice given back, and by birds that even in the midst of the truth of death insist on singing in Greek and saying, eros, eros, eros.

Odysseas Elytis

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.

John Ruskin

When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it

Henry Ford

Absence lessens half-hearted passions, and increases great ones, as the wind puts out candles and yet stirs up the fire

Duc de la Rouchefoucauld

Absence diminishes small loves and increases great ones, as the wind blows out the candle and blows up the bonfire.

Franois de La Rouchefoucauld

I love it Practicing in Texas. You can find anything. You can practice rain, you can practice wind, you can practice on hard pan, you can practice on lush gold courses, you can find all the conditions you will ever encounter in Texas

Tom Kite

There is a special place in our yard where heaven has met the earth. This heaven is a swirl of azure, cerulean, sapphire and cobalt. In it, the whispering wind sings a delicately soft turlee. This heaven flashes an eternal sunset of crimson set on ivory. It sees with sharp eyes of midnight ink.

Bluebird Love

Talk of mysteries! Think of our life in nature daily to be shown matter, to come in contact with it rocks, trees, wind on our cheeks. The solid earth!

Henry David Thoreau

"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 great sea stirs me. The great sea sets me a drift, it sways me like the weed on a river-stone. The sky's height stirs me. The strong wind blows through my mind. It carries me with it, so I shake with joy.

Uvavnuk

The time is almost upon us when a pack-train must wind its way up a graveled highway and turn its bellmare in the pasture of a summer hotel. When that day comes, the pack-train will be dead, the diamond hitch will be merely rope, and Kit Carson and Jim Bridger will be names in a history lesson. And thenceforth the march of empire will be a matter of gasoline and four wheel brakes.

Aldo Leopold

External heat and cold had little influence on Scrooge. No warmth could warm, no wintry weather chill him. No wind that blew was bitterer than he, no falling snow was more intent upon its purpose, no pelting rain less open to entreaty.

Charles Dickens

Only those in tune with nature seem to pick up on the energy in wind. All sorts of things get swept off in the breeze - ghosts, pieces of soul, voices unsung, thoughts repressed, love uncherished, and a thousands galore of spiritual ether. Wind is an emotional rush because emotions are rushing by
