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.william collins
'Tis rushing now adown the spout, And gushing out below, Half frantic in its joyousness, And Wild in eager flow. The earth is dried and parched with heat, And it hath long'd to be Released from out the selfish cloud, To cool the thirsty tree.Elizabeth Oakes Smith, Water.
I heard the bells on Christmas Day, their old, familiar carols play. And Wild and sweet the words repeat, of peace on earth, good-will to men!Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

There grows the Wild ash; and a time-stricken willow Looks chidingly down on the mirth of the billow, As, like some gay child that sad monitor scorning, It lightly laughs back to the laugh of the morning.1826 'Gougane Barra'.
Music might tame and civilize Wild beasts, but 'tis evident it never yet could tame and civilize musicians.john gay
Search then the Ruling Passion:There, alone, The Wild are constant and the cunning known; The fool consistent, and the false sincere; Priests, princes, women, no dissemblers here. This clue once found, unravels all the rest.Alexander Pope
And the Wild boys innocent as strawberries.1946 'The Hunchback in the Park'.
His mind resembled the vast ampitheatre, the Colisæum at Rome. In the centre stood his judgement, which like a mighty gladiator, combated those apprehensions that, like the Wild beasts of the Arena, were all around in cells, ready to be let out upon him. After a conflict, he drives them back into their dens; but not killing them, they were still assailing him.james boswell
What are the Wild waves saying,Sister, the whole day long,That ever amid our playingI hear but their low, lone song?joseph edwards carpenter
The scarlet letter was her passport into regions where other women dared not tread. Shame, Despair, Solitude! These had been her teachers — stern and Wild ones, — and they had made her strong, but taught her much amiss.Nathaniel Hawthorne
If you could extend the elective franchise to all persons of color who can read the Constitution of the United States in English and write their names and to all persons of color who own real estate valued at not less than two hundred and fifty dollars and pay taxes thereon, and would completely disarm the adversary. This you can do with perfect safety. And as a consequence, the radicals, who are Wild upon negro franchise, will be completely foiled in their attempts to keep the Southern States from renewing their relations to the Union.andrew johnson
On thy fair bosom, silver lake,The Wild swan spreads his snowy sail,And round his breast the ripples breakAs down he bears before the gale.james gates percival
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
At one with the power of the American landscape, and renowned for the patient skill and timeless beauty of his work, photographer Ansel Adams has been visionary in his efforts to preserve this country's Wild and scenic areas, both in film and on Earth. Drawn to the beauty of nature's monuments, he is regarded by environmentalists as a monument himself, and by photographers as a national institution. It is through his foresight and fortitude that so much of America has been saved for future Americans.ansel adams
Think'st thou existence doth depend on time ? It doth; but actions are our epochs: mine Have made my days and nights imperishable Endless, and all alike, as sands on the shore Innumerable atoms; and one desert Barren and cold, on which the Wild waves break, But nothing rests, save carcases and wrecks, Rocks, and the salt-surf weeds of bitterness.lord byron
And moody madness laughing Wild Amid severest woe.thomas gray
I met a lady in the meads, Full beautiful a faery's child, Her hair was long, her foot was light, And her eyes were Wild.john keats
To the sane and free it will hardly seem necessary to cross the continent in search of Wild beauty, however easy the way, for they find it in abundance wherever they chance to be.john muir
The atrocity in New York was predictable and inevitable. It was an act of retaliation against constant and systematic manifestations of state terrorism on the part of the United States over many years, in all parts of the world. I believe that it will do this not only to take control of Iraqi oil, but also because the American administration is now a blood-thirsty Wild animal.Harold Pinter
I have known exile and a Wild passion Of longing changing to a cold ache. King, beggar and fool , I have been all by turns, Knowing the body’s sweetness, the mind ’s treason ; Taliesin still, I show you a new world , risen, Stubborn with beauty , out of the heart ’s need .r. s. thomas
Far in a Wild, unknown to public view, From youth to age a reverend hermit grew; The moss his bed, the cave his humble cell, His food the fruits, his drink the crystal well, Remote from man, with God he pass'd the days; Prayer all his business, all his pleasure praise.thomas parnell
The Wild swan's death-hymn took the soul Of that waste place with joy Hidden in sorrow: at first to the ear The warble was low, and full and clear.Alfred Tennyson, The Dying Swan.
You cannot imagine the Wild enthusiasm that these two men created in Vienna. Newspapers went into raptures over each new waltz, and innumerable articles appeared about Lanner and Strauss.Quoted by Bob January
I saw the sweetest flower Wild nature yields, A fresh-blown musk-rose; 'twas the first that threw Its sweets upon the summer.john keats
Words ought to be a little Wild for they are the assault of thoughts on the unthinking.john maynard keynes
Why and Wherefore set out one day, To hunt for a Wild Negation. They agreed to meet at a cool retreat On the Point of Interrogation.oliver herford
The weight of our civilization has become so great, it now ranks as a global force and a significant Wild card in the human future along with the Ice Ages and other vicissitudes of a volatile and changeable planetary systemDianne Dumanoski, Rethinking Environmentalism, December 13, 1998
