I am reminded of those prodigies who spent years of their lives calculating digits of the decimal expansion of - a task that is now a mere warm-up exercise for computer software. I cannot help wandering which of my labors will appear equally quaint and pathetic to some future reader who ransacks libraries for old volumes like this one.
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

A Wandering minstrel I A thing of shreds and patches Of ballads, songs and snatches And dreamy lullaby!Sir W(illiam) S(chwenck) Gilbert
Philosophy to him was rather like a maze in which he happened to find himself Wandering, and what he was looking for was the way out.George Sandys
Or say it is Pentecost: the hawthorn-tree,set with coagulate magnified flowers of may,blooms in a haze of light; old chalk-pits brimwith seminal verdue from the roots of time.Landscape is like revelation; it is bothsingular crystal and the remotest things.Cloud-shadows of seasons revisit the earth,odourless myrrh bourne by the Wandering kings.geoffrey hill
I settled at Cold Mountain long ago Already it seems like ages Wandering free I roam the woods and streams Lingering to watch things be themselves Men don’t come this far into the mountains Where white clouds gather and billow Dry grass makes a comfortable mattress The blue sky is a fine quilt Happy to pillow my head on the rock I leave heaven and earth to endless changehan shan

We must resist Wandering thoughts in prayer. Raising our hands reminds us that we need to raise up our minds to God, setting aside all irrelevant thoughts.john calvin
Supposing I was to tell you that it's just Beauty that's calling me, the beauty of the far off and unknown, the mystery and spell of the East which lures me in the books I've read, the need of the freedom of great wide spaces, the joy of Wandering on and on — in quest of the secret which is hidden over there, beyond the horizon?Eugene O'Neill
Historically the first philosopher to enquire deeply into the nature of corruption in society was Ibn Khaldun (1322-1406), whose Wandering life was largely spent in the northern littoral of Africa at a time when kingdoms and sultanates were crumbling.pierre stephen robert payne
Where music dwells Lingering and Wandering on as loth to die, Like thoughts whose very sweetness yieldeth proof That they were born for immortality.william wordsworth
As the bird by Wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come.
When you live on Cold Mountain long enough the autumns pass quickly When you live alone you have no worries When you leave the doors open no one bothers you The bubbling stream runs forever In the cave a clay pot boils over a fire on the ground A Wandering breeze stirs the fragrant pines When hungry I eat one simple meal And lean against the rock in complete harmonyhan shan
Some paintings become famous because, being durable, they are viewed by successive generations, in each of which are likely to be found a few appreciative eyes. I know a painting so evanescent that it is seldom viewed at all, except by some Wandering deer. It is a river who wields the brush, and it is the same river who, before I can bring my friends to view his work, erases it forever.aldo leopold
By experience we find out a shorter way by a long Wandering. Learning teacheth more in one year than experience in twenty.Roger Ascham
It is not for nothing that this "ignoble tabagie," as Michelet calls it, spreads over all the world. Michelet rails against it because it renders you happily apart from thought or work;… Whatever keeps a man in the front garden, whatever checks Wandering fancy and all inordinate ambition, whatever makes for lounging and contentment, makes just so surely for domestic happiness.Robert Louis Stevenson
God dropped a spark down into everyone, And if we find and fan it to a blaze, It'll spring up and glow, like like the sun, And light the Wandering out of stony ways.john masefield
I feel like a ghost Wandering in a world grown alien. I cannot cast out the old way of writing and I cannot acquire the new. I have made an intense effort to feel the musical manner of today, but it will not come to me.
Be not troubled by the wanderings of your imagination which you cannot restrain. How often do we wander through the fear of Wandering and the regret that we have done so. What would you say of a traveler who, instead of constantly advancing in his journey, should employ his time in anticipating the falls he might suffer, or in weeping over the place where one had happened?
We are the voices of the Wandering wind, Which moan for rest and rest can never find; Lo! as the wind is, so is mortal life, A moan, a sigh, a sob, a storm, a strife.
