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!
To die alone, on Rock under sun at the brink of the unknown, like a wolf, like a great bird, seems to me very good fortune indeed.edward abbey
Backward, flow backward, O full tide of years! I am so weary of toil and of tears, Toil without recompense tears all in vain, Take them and give me my childhood again. I have grown weary of dust and decay, Weary of flinging my heart's wealth away Weary of sowing for others to reap; Rock me to sleep, mother, Rock me to sleep.
My early book learning came to me as naturally as the seasons in … the little town in which I grew up. … Quite early I began to find a special charm in an unpeopled world … of lava Rock and sagebrush desert. … I was often more purely happy at such times than I think I have ever been since.richard mckenna
The first 3 years the focus would be entirely on [...] building a Rock solid infrastructure.matt mullenweg
I love the joy of mountains Wandering free with no concerns Every day I find food for this old body There’s leisure for thinking, nothing to do Often I carry an ancient book Sometimes I climb a Rock pavilion To look down a thousand foot precipice Overhead are swirling clouds A cold moon chilly cold My body feels like a flying cranehan shan
Rock and roll is a music, and why should a music contribute to ... juvenile delinquency? If people are going to be juvenile delinquents, they're going to be delinquents if they hear ... Mother Goose rhymes.
Down to the Plymouth Rock, that had been to their feet as a doorstep Into a world unknown, the corner-stone of a nation!Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Milton, Madam, was a genius that could cut a Colossus from a Rock; but could not carve heads upon cherry- stones.
Your wickedness makes you as it were heavy as lead, and to tend downwards with great weight and pressure towards hell; and if God should let you go, you would immediately sink and switfly descend and plunge into the bottomless gulf, and your healthy constitution, and your own care and prudence, and best contrivance, and all your righteousness, would have no more influence to uphold you and keep you out of hell, than a spider's web would have to stop a fallen Rock.jonathan edwards
A reporter once asked me if I ever cried. I wonder if people think I'm just as hard as a Rock and have no emotions at all.diana ross
Earth was once molten Rock, and now it makes spaceships.brian swimme
The rolling stone rolls echoing from Rock to Rock; but the rolling stone is dead. The moss is silent because the moss is alive.gilbert keith chesterton
And to me it seems that you have fallen asleep upon a white Rock, and in a parish of dreams , and have dreamt all this in a moment while it was night .anatole france
I love the joy of mountains Wandering free with no concerns Every day I find food for this old body There’s leisure for thinking, nothing to do Often I carry an ancient book Sometimes I climb a Rock pavilion To look down a thousand foot precipice Overhead are swirling clouds A cold moon chilly cold My body feels like a flying crane
His talk was like a stream which runs With rapid change from Rock to roses; It slipped from politics to puns; It passed from Mahomet to Moses; Beginning with the laws that keep The planets in their radiant courses, And ending with some precept deep For dressing eels or shoeing horses.winthrop mackworth praed
I thought Rock and roll was an unassailable outlet for some pure and natural expression of rebellion. It used to be one channel you could take without ever havin' to kiss arse, you know?
"Did you really want to die?"
"No one commits suicide because they want to die."
"Then why do they do it?"
"Because they want to stop the pain."
When you sincerely embrace Jesus as your Saviour, and rest on His atonement for pardon, when you look to Him for daily direction, lean on Him for support, and are joined to Him in heart union, then you may be sure that you have got the everlasting Rock bed underneath you.theodore l. cuyler
The sounding cataract Haunted me like a passion: the tall Rock, The mountain, and the deep and gloomy wood, Their colours and their forms, were then to me An appetite; a feeling and a love, That had no need of a remoter charm, By thought supplied, nor any interest Unborrowed from the eye.william wordsworth
The stars went out and so did the moon. The singer stopped playing and went to bed While the Weary Blues echoed through his head. He slept like a Rock or a man that's dead.langston hughes
Science and mathematics Run parallel to reality , they symbolize it, they squint at it, They never touch it: consider what an explosion Would Rock the bones of men into little white fragments and unsky the world If any mind for a moment touch truth .
If it's illegal to Rock and roll, throw my ass in jail!Kurt (Donald) Cobain
26th October last year, not 10 metres from where these men are now entombed, you had a 400-tonne Rock fall. Why is it, is it the strength of the seam, or the wealth of the seam, that you continue to send men into work in such a dangerous environment?
