A Quote by Black Elk on indian, circle, sky, earth, wind, stars, birds, seasons, life, and human power

You have noticed that everything as Indian does
is in a circle, and that is because the Power of the World always works in circles, and everything tries to be round..... The Sky is round, and I have heard
that the earth is round like a ball, and so are
all the stars. The wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nest in circles, for
theirs is the same religion as ours....

Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. The life of a man is a circle from
childhood to childhood, and so it is in
everything where power moves.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on animals, birds, mountains, plants, and streams

Each stone, each bend cries welcome to him. He identifies with the mountains and the streams, he sees something of his own soul in the plants and the animals and the birds of the field.

A Quote by Linda Hogan on lovers, trees, birds, metaphor, and joy

Let's kneel down
through all the worlds of the body
like lovers.  I know
I am a tree and full of life
and I know you, you
are the flying one and will leave.
But can't we swallow the sweetness
and can't you sing in my arms
and sleep in the human light
of the sun and moon I have been
drinking alone.

A Quote by Laura Ingalls Wilder on autumn, birds, and wings

All those golden autumn days the sky was full of wings. Wings beating low over the blue water of Silver Lake, wings beating high in the blue air far above it. Wings of geese, of brant, of ducks and pelicans and cranes and heron and swans and gulls, bearing them all away to green fields in the South.

A Quote by Robert Lynd on life, beauty, birds, conservation, friendship, and love

There is nothing in which the birds differ more from man than the way in which they can build and yet leave a landscape as it was before.

A Quote by Victor Hugo on lips, love, kiss, birds, snow, rose, dawn, tree, summit, hill, and chance

How did it happen that their lips came together? How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts, that the rose unfolds, that the dawn whitens behind the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill? A kiss, and all was said.

Victor Hugo
