The two transports had sneaked up from the south in the first graying flush of dawn, their cumbersome mass cutting smoothly through the water whose still greater mass bore them silently, themselves s gray as the dawn which camouflaged them.
Wind of the sunny south! oh, still delay In the gay woods and in the golden air, Like to a good old age released from care, Journeying, in long serenity, away. In such a bright, late quiet, would that I Might wear out life like thee, mid bowers and brooks, And, dearer yet, the sunshine of kind looks, And music of kind voices ever nigh; And when my last sand twinkled in the glass, Pass Silently from men as thou dost pass.william cullen bryant
But my world fell apart, and all they could do, the whole universe, was to Silently move on.Khadija Rupa
The bourgeoisie's weapon is starvation. If as a writer or artist you run counter to their narrow notions they simplyand Silently withdraw your means of subsistence. I sometimes wonder how many people of talent are executed in this way every year.Robert Louis Stevenson
Tenderly Kala nursed her little waif, wondering Silently why it did not gain strength and agility as did the little apes of other mothers. It was nearly a year from the time the little fellow came into her possession before he would walk alone, and as for climbing — my, but how stupid he was!Edgar Rice Burroughs
The most interesting character here is an animal, a sturdy-looking white and black bulldog, who appears throughout the movie, angel style, to speak the truth -- Silently. In this load of mind-bendy bushwa, he's the only thing worth watching, or listening to.stephanie zacharek
In spite of difference of soil and climate, of language and manners, of laws and customs—in spite of things Silently gone out of mind, and things violently destroyed, the Poet binds together by passion and knowledge the vast empire of human society, as it is spread over the whole earth, and over all time.william wordsworth
How idle a boast, after all, is the immortality of a name! Time is ever Silently turning over his pages; we are too much engrossed by the story of the present to think of the character and anecdotes that gave interest to the past; and each age is a volume thrown aside and forgotten.
E’en like the passage of an angel’s tear That falls through the clear ether Silently.john keats
A grand old Neptune in the prow, Gray-hair'd, and white with touch of time, Yet strong as in his middle prime; A grizzled king, I see him now, With beard as blown by wind of seas, And wild and white as white sea-storm, Stand up, turn suddenly, look back Along the low boat's wrinkled track, Then fold his mantle round a form Broad-built as any Hercules, And so sit Silently.joaquin miller
Just sitting Silently for a few minutes within the sphere of Dhyanalinga is enough to make even those unaware of meditation experience a state of deep meditativeness. - Sadhguru (on the Dhyanalinga meditation shrine at Isha Yoga Centre, India)jaggi vasudev
All our knowledge merely helps us to die a more painful death than the animals that know nothing. A day will come when science will turn upon its error and no longer hesitate to shorten our woes. A day will come when it will dare and act with certainty; when life, grown wiser, will depart Silently at its hour, knowing that it has reached its term.Maurice Maeterlinck
Our souls sit close and Silently within, And their own web from their own entrails spin; And when eyes meet far off, our sense is such, That, spider like, we feel the tenderest touch.john dryden
There live a great man named Joe who was belittled by a loudmouth foe. While his rival would taunt and tease Joe Silently bore the stings. And then fought like gladiator in the ring.
The pleasant books, that Silently among Our household treasures take familiar places, And are to us as if a living tongue Spake from the printed leaves or pictured faces!Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Two ways the rivers Leap down to different seas, and as they roll Grow deep and still, and their majestic presence Becomes a benefaction to the towns They visit, wandering Silently among them, Like patriarchs old among their shining tents.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
