With eyes up-raised, as one inspired, Pale Melancholy sate retired, And from her wild sequestered seat, In notes by distance made more sweet, Poured thro'the mellow horn her pensive soul.
What has particularly interested me about these horses is that, after thousands of years of domestication, they have adapted so successfully to life in the Wild. If these horses are really as healthy and as sound as they appear, then there is probably a lot we can learn from them, such as the way their hooves are shaped and the manner in which they shape them.jaime jackson
It was ages ago in life's first wonderI found you, Virgilia, Wild sea-heart;And 'twas ages ago that we went asunder,Ages and worlds apart.Your luminous face and your hair's dark glory,I knew them of old by an ocean-stream,In a far, first world now turned to story,Now faded back to dream.edwin markham
There is something at work in my soul which I do not understand. I am practically industrious — painstaking, a workman to execute with perseverance and labour — but besides this there is a love for the marvellous, a belief in the marvellous, intertwined in all my projects, which hurries me out of the common pathways of men, even to the Wild sea and unvisited regions I am about to explore.mary wollstonecraft
Though this motion for a new trial is an application to the discretion of the Court, it must be remembered that the discretion to be exercised on such an occasion is not a Wild but a sound discretion, and to be confined within those limits within which an honest man, competent to discharge the duties of his office, ought to confine himself. And that discretion will be best exercised by not deviating from the rules laid down by our predecessors; for the practice of the Court forms the law of the Court.kenyon, lloyd, 1st baron kenyon
There was something in the Wild strength of this landscape, once a battlefield, that seemed to be shouting at him, a presence born of that strength whose cry his whole being recognized as familiar, caught and threw back into the wind, some youthful passage of courage and pride the passionate, yet so nearly always hypocritical, affirmation of one’s soul perhaps, he thought, of the desire to be, to do, good, what was right.malcolm lowry
Music is a means capable of expressing dark dramatism and pure rapture, suffering and ecstasy, fiery and cold fury, melancholy and Wild merriment – and the subtlest nuances and interplay of these feelings which words are powerless to express and which are unattainable in painting and sculpture.dmitri shostakovich
The northern ocean is beautiful , ... and beautiful the delicate intricacy of the snowflake before it melts and perishes, but such beauties are as nothing to him who delights in numbers, spurning alike the Wild irrationality of life and baffling complexity of nature’s laws.J. L. Synge, in Mathematical Reports of the Academy of Science, Volume 7,p.111
The seal and guerdon of wealth untold We clasp in the Wild marsh marigold.Nature's Coinage; reported in Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations (1922), p. 495.
Some are soon bagg'd but some reject three dozen. 'Tis fine to see them scattering refusals And Wild dismay, o'er every angry cousin (Friends of the party) who begin accusais, Such as "Unless Miss (Blank) meant to have chosen Poor Frederick, why did she accord perusals To his billets? Why waltz with him? Why, I pray, Look yes last night, and yet say No to-day?"lord byron
Our echoes roll from soul to soul, And grow for ever and for ever. Blow, bugle, blow, set the Wild echoes flying, And answer, echoes, answer, dying, dying, dying.Alfred Tennyson, The Princess (1847), IV, Bugle Song.
Young men, you who have any piety at all, what sort is it? Is it a hot-house plant, which must be framed and glassed, lest March, that bold young fellow, should shake the life out.of it in his rough play among the flowers? or is it a hardy shrub, which rejoices when the Wild winds course along the heather or howl above the crest of Lebanon? We need, believe me, the bravery of godliness to bear true witness for our Master now.William Morley Punshon, p. 452. (Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895))
