Since I’ve shared random information a few times before, I’m going to be different again and share some more inspiring quotes from my collection – with particular relevance to creative pursuits and nature this time. Hope some of us feel inspired by them, or perhaps one may spark a poem or story idea.
‘In her starry shade of dim and solitary loveliness, I learn the language of another world.’ George Gordon, Lord Byron
‘The woods were made for the hunter of dreams, the brooks for the fishes of song.’ Sam Walter Foss
‘Sit in reverie, and watch the changing color of the waves that break upon the idle seashore of the mind.’ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
‘Moonlight is sculpture, sunlight is painting.’ Nathanial Hawthorne
‘Here will we sit and let the sounds of music creep in our ears: soft stillness and the night become touches of sweet harmony.’ William Shakespeare
‘To a mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.’ Chuang Tzu
‘It is not the language of the painters but the language of nature to which one has to listen.’ Vincent van Gogh
I’m not sure who has had this award by now, so please feel free to accept it if you feel inspired to share something on your blog.
