Gerard Manley Hopkins

« All quotes from this author
 

I have desired to go
Where springs not fail,
To fields where flies no sharp and sided hail
And a few lilies blow.
And I have asked to be
Where no storms come,
Where the green swell is in the havens dumb,
And out of the swing of the sea.
--
Heaven-Haven, lines 1-8

Watching storms
Start to form
Over America.
Can't do anything.
Just watch them swing
With the wind
Out to sea.

 
Kate Bush
 

Things have never been so swell
I have never failed to fail.

 
Kurt Donald Cobain
 

They say that "he who flies highest, falls farthest" ó and who am I to argue? But we can't forget that "he who doesn't flap his wings, never flies at all". And with that, I'll stop trying to convince myself that I can't fail; how dull the whole thing would be if that were true.

 
Hunter S. Thompson
 

The hardest thing to do is to swing quietly, with control and restraint. Lots of bands swing loudly. I refuse to let my band play loudly in order to try to swing when it isnít swinging softly. I think that the best jazz in the long run is the jazz that is controlled and will swing on its own terms.

 
John Dankworth
 

The force that through the green fuse drives the flower
Drives my green age; that blasts the roots of trees
Is my destroyer.
And I am dumb to tell the crooked rose
My youth is bent by the same wintry fever.

 
Dylan Thomas
