Oh there is blessing in this gentle breeze, Avisitant that while it fans my cheek Doth seem half conscious of the joy it brings From the green fields, and from yon azure sky. Whate'er its mission, the soft breeze can come To none more grateful than to me; escaped From the vast city, where I Long had pined A discontented sojourner: now free, Free as a bird to settle where I will.william wordsworth
But the sound of water escaping from mill-dams, &c., willows, old rotten planks, slimy posts, and brickwork, I love such things. Shakespeare could make everything poetical; he tells us of poor Tom's haunts among "sheep cotes and mills." As Long as I do paint, I shall never cease to paint such places. They have always been my delight.john constable
At a time when it's possible for thirty people to stand on the top of Everest in one day, Antarctica still remains a remote, lonely and desolate continent. A place where it's possible to see the splendours and immensities of the natural world at its most dramatic and, what's more, witness them almost exactly as they were, Long, Long before human beings ever arrived on the surface of this planet. Long may it remain so.david attenborough

I ran home [from Cloud's Rest to Yosemite Valley] in the moonlight, with Long, firm strides; for the sun-love made me strong. Down through the junipers down through the firs; now in jet-shadows, now in white light; over sandy moraines and bare, clanking rock; past the huge ghost of South Dome, rising weird through the firs past glorious Nevada past the groves of Illilouette through the pines of the valley; frost-crystals flashing all the sky beneath, as star-crystals on all the sky above. All of this mountain-bread for one day!john muir
You either die a hero or you live Long enough to see yourself become the villain.Harvey Dent

I can never look now at the Milky Way without wondering from which of those banked clouds of stars the emissaries are coming. If you will pardon so commonplace a simile, we have set off the fire alarm and have nothing to do but to wait. I do not think we will have to wait for Longarthur c. clarke
I get guilty when I spend money on silly things like clothes and stuff... Having experienced a completely different extreme of wealth, and I don't mean me being poor or rich, I mean knowing that 40 quid that gets spent on a pair of shoes could go a Long way for a family in Georgia for a week or even a month, having experienced that, you're a bit more [guilty].katie melua
The sun had Long since in the lap Of Thetis taken out his nap, And, like a lobster boil'd, the morn From black to red began to turn.Samuel Butler

A person in a rented apartment must be able to lean out of his window and scrape off the masonry within arm's reach. And he must be allowed to take a Long brush and paint everything outside within arm's reach.

I believe that we don't need to worry about what happens after this life, as Long as we do our duty here to love and to serve.Albert Einstein
The “brightness” of the 15 percent might or might not indicate a profound feeling for the causes of things; it is largely verbal and symbol-manipulating, and is almost certainly partly an obsessional device not to know and touch risky matter, just as Freud Long ago pointed out that the nagging questions of small children are a substitute for asking the forbidden questions.paul goodman
When I reached the [Yosemite] valley, all the rocks seemed talkative, and more lovable than ever. They are dear friends, and have warm blood gushing through their granite flesh; and I love them with a love intensified by Long and close companionship. ... I ... bathed in the bright river, sauntered over the meadows, conversed with the domes, and played with the pines.john muir

Absolute Evil is not the kingdom of hell. The inhabitants of hell are ourselves, i.e., those who pay our painful, embarrassing, humanistic duties to society and who are compromised by our intellectually dubious commitment to virtue, which can be defined by the perpetual smear-word of French polemic: the bourgeois. (Bourgeois equals humanist.) This word has Long been anathema in France where categories are part of the ruling notion of logique. The word cannot be readily matched in England or America.v. s pritchett
