Wind Quotes

Walk away quietly in any direction and taste the freedom on the mountaineerĂ– Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The wind will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.

John Muir

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

In the bleak midwinter Frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, Water like a stone; Snow had fallen, snow on snow, Snow on snow, In the bleak midwinter, Long ago.

Christina Rossetti

Yes, and there were changes of light on landscapes and changes of direction of the wind and the force of the wind and weather. That whole scene is too important in Homer to neglect

Robert Fitzgerald

One of the most devastating experiences in human life is disillusionment. Of course there are some illusions the disillusionment of which is healthy. It takes two things to bowl over a tree a heavy wind outside and decay inside. Much of the moral wreckage is caused by inner cynicism a disgust with life's futility, an inability to see sense in it. A person in that mood is an easy mark for the next high wind.

Art Sisson

I was happy but happy is an adult world. You don't have to ask a child about happy, you see it. They are or they are not Adults talk about being happy because largely they are not. Talking about it is the same as trying to catch the wind. Much easier to let it blow all over you. This is where I disagree with the philosophers. They talk about passionate things but there is no passion in them. Never talk happiness with a philosopher

Jeanette Winterson

The weather-cock on the church spire, though made of iron, would soon be broken by the storm-wind if it ... did not understand the noble art of turning to every wind.

Heinrich Heine

Three things a wise man will not trust, The wind, the sunshine of an April day, And woman's plighted faith.

Robert Southey

The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of the wind. But the goodness of a person spreads in all direction.


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

Henry Ford

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.


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

Roger de Bussy-Rabutin
