Helen, thy beauty is to me Like those Nicean barks of yore, That gently, o'er a perfumed sea, The weary, wayworn wanderer bore To his own native shore. On desperate seas long wont to roam, Thy hyacinth hair, thy classic face, Thy Naiad airs have brought me home To the glory that was Greece And the grandeur that was Rome.
My father died shortly after I was twenty-one; and being left well off, and having a taste for travel and adventure, I resigned, for a time, all pursuit of the almighty dollar, and became a desultory wanderer over the face of the earth.edward bulwer-lytton
I shall remain a wanderer until mankind has learned the way of peace; walking until given shelter and fasting until given food.peace pilgrim
O sylvan Wye! thou wanderer thro' the woods, How often has my spirit turned to thee!william wordsworth
Thou waitest for the spark from heaven! and we, Light half-believers of our casual creeds, Who never deeply felt, nor clearly will’d, Whose insight never has borne fruit in deeds, Whose vague resolves never have been fulfill’d; For whom each year we see Breeds new beginnings, disappointments new; Who hesitate and falter life away, And lose to-morrow the ground won to-day Ah! do not we, wanderer! await it too?Matthew Arnold
A wilderness, in contrast with those areas where man and his own works dominate the landscape, is hereby recognized as an area where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a member of the natural community, a wanderer who visits but does not remain and whose travels leave only trails.
I shall remain a wanderer until mankind has learned the way of peace; walking until given shelter and fasting until given food.
All existence seemed to be based on duality, on contrast. Either one was a man or one was a woman, either a wanderer or sedentary burgher, either a thinking person or a feeling person-no one could breathe in at the same time as he breathed out, be a man as well as a woman, experience freedom as well as order, combine instinct and mind. One always had to pay for one with the loss of the other, and one thing was always just as important and desirable as the other.
Alone by the Schuylkill a wanderer rov'd, And bright were its flowery banks to his eye; But far, very far, were the friends that he lov'd, And he gaz'd on its flowery banks with a sigh.thomas moore
Drown into my eyes and see the wanderer.
A PILGRIM IS A wanderer WITH A PURPOSE. A pilgrimage can be to a place that's the best known kind but it can also be for a thing. Mine is for peace, and that is why I am a Peace Pilgrim.
Come, come, whoever you are. wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving it doesn't matter, Ours is not a caravan of despair . Come, even if you have broken your vow a hundred times, Come, come again, come.jalal al-din muhammad rumi
Come, come, whoever you are. wanderer, worshipper, lover of living, it doesn't matter Ours is not a caravan of despair. Come even if you have broken your vow a thousand times, Come, yet again, come, come.jalal al-din muhammad rumi
O, to bring back the great Homeric time, The simple manners and the deeds sublime: When the wise wanderer, often foiled by Fate, Through the long furrow drave the ploughshare straight.
