Zeal is that pure and heavenly flame, The fire of love supplies:;; While that which often bears the name, Is self in a disguise. True zeal is merciful and mild, Can pity and forbear:;; The false is headstrong, fierce and wild, And breathes revenge and war.
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
O lyric Love, half angel and half bird; And all a wonder and a Wild desire, Boldest of hearts that ever braved the sun, Took sanctuary within the holier blue, And sang a kindred soul out to his face, Yet human at the red-ripe of the heart; When the first summons from the darkling earth Reached thee amid thy chambers, blanched their blue, And bared them of the glory to drop down, To toil for man, to suffer or to die, This is the same voice: can thy soul know change? Hail then, and hearken from the realms of help!Robert Browning
The twilight is sad and cloudy, The wind blows Wild and free, And like the wings of sear-birds Hash the white caps of the sea.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
"The high tide!" King Alfred cried. "The high tide and the turn! As a tide turns on the tall grey seas, See how they waver in the trees, How stray their spears, how knock their knees, How Wild their watchfires burn!
It is not raining rain to me, It's raining daffodils; In every dimpled drop I see Wild flowers on distant hills.Robert Loveman
My soul is awakened, my spirit is soaring; And carried aloft on the wings of the breeze; For above and around me the Wild wind is roaring, Arousing to rapture the earth and the seas.anne brontë
Wild, dark times are rumbling toward us, and the prophet who wishes to write a new apocalypse will have to invent entirely new beasts, and beasts so terrible that the ancient animal symbols of St. John will seem like cooing doves and cupids in comparison.Heinrich Heine
Then felt I like some watcher of the skies When a new planet swims into his ken; Or like stout Cortez when with eagle eyes He star'd at the Pacific and all his men Look'd at each other with a Wild surmise Silent, upon a peak in Darien.john keats
I have precious little sympathy for the selfish propriety of civilized man, and if a war of races should occur between the Wild beasts and Lord Man, I would be tempted to sympathise with the bears.john muir
When the speeches of Wilson , Clemenceau , and Lloyd George, the worst of the predators, the Wild beasts of imperialism, are repeated here by Martov in the name of the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party … then I say to myself that we have to be on the alert and to realise that the Cheka is indispensable!
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
What are these, So wither'd, and so Wild in their attire; That look not like the inhabitants o' th' earth, And yet are on 't?william shakespeare
If I chance to talk a little Wild, forgive me; I had it from my father.william shakespeare
The story of Romulus and Remus being suckled by a wolf is not a meaningless fable. The founders of every State which has risen to eminence have drawn their nourishment and vigor from a similar Wild source. It was because the children of the Empire were not suckled by the wolf that they were conquered and displaced by the children of the Northern forests who were.Henry David Thoreau
No bird flies near, no tiger creeps; alone the whirlwind, Wild and black, assails the tree of death and sweeps away with death upon its back.
Oh! roses and lilies are fair to see; But the Wild bluebell is the flower for me.Louisa A. meredith
I'm Wild again Beguiled again A simpering, whimpering child again, Bewitched, bothered and bewildered am I.Lorenz Hart
It was a Wild and breaker-beaten coast, With cliffs above, and a broad sandy shore, Guarded by shoals and rocks as by an host, With here and there a creek, whose aspect wore A better welcome to the tempest-tost; And rarely ceased the haughty billow's roar, Save on the dead long summer days, which make The outstretch'd ocean glitter like a lake.Rochdale
Lafayette is a young man of royal birth, with liberal politics and what Jefferson later called "a canine appetite for fame." Someone said he was "a statue in search of a pedestal." But he was intoxicated with, [had] a rather theoretical love of, liberty. It was theoretical because liberty wasn't known to many Europeans. [Lafayette] was a great romantic and he fell in love with America, the concept of America that the French had. This Wild new world where you could start the world over, to use Tom Paine's phrase.lafayette, gilbert du motier, marquis de
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
Hear how he clears the points o' Faith Wi' rattlin' an' thumpin'! Now meekly calm, now Wild in wrath, He's stampin', an' he's jumpin'!Robert Burns
