It takes an earthquake to remind us that we walk on the crust of an unfinished earth.
If you can’t fly, run; if you can’t run, Walk; if you can’t Walk, crawl; but by all means keep moving.Martin Luther King Jr.
My friends, to those who say that we are rushing this issue of civil rights, I say to them we are 172 years late. To those who say that this civil-rights program is an infringement on states’ rights, I say this: The time has arrived in America for the Democratic Party to get out of the shadow of states' rights and to Walk forthrightly into the bright sunshine of human rights.hubert humphrey
Tommy locked his doors, armed his security system, replaced all the 9-volt batteries in his smoke detectors, made sure the gun in his dresser drawer was loaded, and went to bed where, before falling asleep, he recited a psalm from memory, with an emphasis on one line in particular: “yea, though I Walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me . . .”lis wiehl

His imperial fancy has laid all Nature under tribute, and has collected riches from every scene of the creation and every Walk of art.robert hall
In societies with fewer opportunities for amusement, it was also easier to tell a mere wish from a real desire. If, in order to hear some music, a man has to wait for six months and then Walk twenty miles, it is easy to tell whether the words, "I should like to hear some music," mean what they appear to mean, or merely, "At this moment I should like to forget myself." When all he has to do is press a switch, it is more difficult. He may easily come to believe that wishes can come true.wystan hugh auden
Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you.John, XII. 35. (Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations)
Walk into a class at Shimer with students talking earnestly, sometimes painfully, about the meaning of a classic and you might think you had stumbled into a group therapy session for young literati.Dirk Johnson
Children, you are very little, And your bones are very brittle; If you would grow great and stately, You must try to Walk sedately.Robert Louis Stevenson
Life is a maze in which we take the wrong turning before we have learnt to Walk.cyril connolly
Thou art greatly wise, my friend, and ever respected by me, yet I find not in your theory or your scope, room enough for the lyric inspirations, or the mysterious whispers of life. To me it seems that it is madder never to abandon oneself, than often to be infatuated; better to be wounded, a captive, and a slave, than always to Walk in armor.margaret fuller
Here and there, among a thousand other peddlers, are slyly hissing dealers who urge you to come along with them to allegedly "very beautiful" girls, and not only to girls. They keep at it, Walk alongside, praising their wares until you answer roughly. They don't know that you have resolved to eat nothing but rice just to escape from sexuality!thomas mann
Acid allows you to Walk through the door to an alternate reality, but most people have no idea how to Walk back through.Robert M. Pirsig in Lila : An Inquiry into Morals (1991)
After dinner sit a while, and after supper Walk a mile.English Saying
Swiftly Walk over the western wave, Spirit of Night!Percy Bysshe Shelley
Along the river's summer Walk, The withered tufts of asters nod; And trembles on its arid stalk The hoar plume of the golden-rod. And on a ground of sombre fir, And azure-studded juniper, The silver birch its buds of purple shows, And scarlet berries tell where bloomed the sweet wild-rose![[John Greenleaf Whittier, The Last Walk in Autumn.
They who live in history only seemed to Walk the earth again.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
God knows I'm gonna/ Walk in Jerusalem/ Talk in Jerusalem/ Sing in Jerusalem/ Be in Jerusalem/ High above in Jerusalem when I die.Mahalia Jackson, Walk in Jerusalem
