Trees are the earth's endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.
The law isn't perfect. Neither are the people who've created it. But it's been made with the endless effort to do good.
Nor second he, that rode sublime Upon the seraph-wings of ecstasy, The secrets of th'abyss to spy. He passed the flaming bounds of place and time: 370 The living throne, the sapphire-blaze, Where angels tremble, while they gaze, He saw; but blasted with excess of light, Closed his eyes in endless night.thomas gray
There is no gilding of setting sun or glamor of poetry to light up the ferocious and endless toil of the farmers' wives.(Hannibal) Hamlin Garland
On the geometric level, we see certain physical elements repeated endlessly, combined in an almost endless variety of combinations... It is puzzling to realize that the elements, which seem like elementary building blocks, keep varying, and are different every time that they occur .... If the elements are different every time that they occur, evidently then, it cannot be the elements themselves which are repeating in a building or town; these so-called elements cannot be the ultimate "atomic" constituents of space.christopher alexander
I believe the term ‘serial killer’ is highly misleading, in that it implicitly suggests to the general public that murder is the paramount object or motivating urge in the mind of the killer ... They naturally attribute this motivation partly because they value human life above all else, and partly because, as their endless fascination with the subject suggests, they have a vague conception of murder as being somehow mystical, highly dramatic, or even a nebulously romantic experience, replete with unimaginable connotations of eroticism. And guilt for it must be paid for in full.ian brady
The process of creative discovery is endless. That’s why “holiness” tends to limit mental vitality and progress by freezing a given work (a life guide) in time, no matter how interpretations differ and even change over the years.tarik gunersel
Life everywhere is in vast and endless variety. So it is with life eternal, that gift of God, constituting, in its length and breadth and height and depth, the reward of the righteous. The penitent, dying thief is not going into heaven like the triumphant, dying Paul.herrick johnson
Absolutists frighten me. During all the endless discussions on my blog about evolution , intelligent design, God , and the afterworld, numbering altogether thousands of comments, I have never named my beliefs , although readers have freely informed me that I am an atheist , and agnostic , or at the very least a secular humanist which I am.roger ebert
What is that sound high in the air Murmur of maternal lamentation Who are those hooded hordes swarming Over endless plains, stumbling in cracked earth Ringed by the flat horizon only What is the city over the mountains Cracks and reforms and bursts in the violet air Falling towers Jerusalem Athens Alexandria Vienna London UnrealT. S. Eliot
There is at least a punky spark in my heart and it may blaze in this autumn gold, fanned by the King. Some of my grandfathers must have been born on a muirland for there is heather in me, and tinctures of bog juices, that send me to Cassiope, and oozing through all my veins impel me unhaltingly through endless glacier meadows, seemingly the deeper and danker the better.john muir
I attempt to describe Mr. Swinburne; and lo! the Bacchanal screams, the sterile Dolores sweats, serpents dance, men and women wrench, wriggle and foam in an endless alliteration of heated and meaningless words, the veriest garbage of Baudelaire flowered over with the epithets of the Della Cruscans.algernon charles swinburne
The expansion (i.e. projection) and the contraction (i.e. dissolution ) of the universe are called lila (the divine sport) in Hindu scriptures. In this divine play, the One becomes many and the many return into the One in endless rhythmic fashion.
Love rests on no foundation. It is an endless ocean, with no beginning or end.
We shall not meet again: over the waveOur ways divide, and yours is straight and endless –But mine is short and crooked to the grave:Yet what of these dark crowds, amid whose flowI battle like a rock, aloof and friendless –Are not their generations, vague and endless,The waves, the strides, the feet on which I go?roy campbell
When I was young, life seemed long and endless to me.marcello mastroianni
Greed is a bottomless pit which exhausts the person in an endless effort to satisfy the need without ever reaching satisfaction.Erich Fromm
This is a small country with limited resources. Can we afford the time spent on endless debates about ethnicity and identity?ratu joni madraiwiwi
Thou wouldst be loved? then let thy heart From its present pathway part not! Being everything which now thou art, Be nothing which thou art not. So with the world thy gentle ways, Thy grace, thy more than beauty, Shall be an endless theme of praise, And love a simple duty.edgar allan poe
One cannot ignore half of life for the purposes of science, and then claim that the results of science give a full and adequate picture of the meaning of life. All discussions of 'life' which begin with a description of man's place on a speck of matter in space, in an endless evolutionary scale, are bound to be half-measures, because they leave out most of the experiences which are important to use as human beings.colin wilson
If we want world peace, we must break the vicious circle of violence and reprisal, of an eye for an eye, of endless hate.
He seems to me a very foolish man, and very wretched, who will not increase his understanding while he is in the world , and ever wish and long to reach that endless life where all shall be made clear.
