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.
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
There was a time in this fair land when the railroad did not run And the Wild majestic mountains stood alone against the sun Long before the white man and long before the wheel When the green dark forest was too silent to be real... Oh! The song of the future has been sung All the battles have been won On the mountain tops we stand All the world at our command We have opened up the soil with our teardrops and our toilgordon lightfoot
The winter wind is loud and Wild, Come close to me, my darling child; Forsake thy books, and mateless play; And, while the night isgathering grey, We'll talk its pensive hours away. Brooke1846 'Faith and Despondency', in Poems by Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell.
If the Wild bowler thinks he bowls Or if the batsman thinks he's bowled, They know not, poor misguided souls, They too shall perish unconsoled. I am the batsman and the bat, I am the bowler and the ball, The umpire, the pavilion cat, The roller, pitch, and stumps and all. See Emerson 313:39.Andrew Lang
Ah, sad and strange as in dark summer dawns The earliest pipe of half-awakened birds To dying ears, when unto dying eyes The casement slowly grows a glimmering square; So sad, so strange, the days that are no more. Dear as remembered kisses after death, And sweet as those by hopeless fancy feigned On lips that are for others; deep as love, Deep as first love, and Wild with all regret; O Death in Life, the days that are no more.Tennyson
Men are all right for friends, but as soon as you marry them they turn into cranky old fathers, even the Wild ones. They begin to tell you what's sensible and what's foolish, and want you to stick at home all the time. I prefer to be foolish when I feel like it, and be accountable to nobody.willa cather
Why do we profess to so love and adore and worship and seek closeness to the wolf, the supposed poster child for all that's remote, Wild and free, the mournful soul-searching stuff of poetry and song, not to mention fawning documentaries and movies, while at the same time we're taught to despise and persecute by any means bullet, trap, wire, poison its close cousin and equally beautiful and rightful occupant of the Wild, the coyote?John Harrigan, Hate coyotes, adore the wolf: explain, please, NewHampshire.com (Sep. 15, 2012)
A leopard doesn't change his spots just because you bring him in from the jungle and try to housebreak him and turn him into a pet. He may learn to sheathe his claws in order to beg a few scraps off the dinner table, and you may teach him to be a beast of burden, but it doesn't pay to forget that he'll al ways be what he was born: a Wild animal.George Lincoln Rockwell, Interview with Alex Haley, published in Playboy (April 1966).
Neither ridiculous shriekings for revenge by French chauvinists, nor the Englishmen's gnashing of teeth, nor the Wild gestures of the Slavs will turn us from our aim of protecting and extending German influence all the world over.Official secret report of the Germans, quoted in the French Yellow Book.
