circle

A Quote by Gerard Manley Hopkins on circle, light, nature, and stars

Look at the stars!  Look, look up at the skies!
Oh look at all the fire-folk sitting in the air!
The bright boroughs, the circle-citadels there!

Gerard Manley Hopkins

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 John Muir on circle, consciousness, nature, self, spirit, and unity

To lovers of the wild, these mountains are not a hundred miles away.  Their spiritual power and the goodness of the sky make them near, as a circle of friends. ... You cannot feel yourself out of doors; plain, sky, and mountains ray beauty which you feel.  You bathe in these spirit-beams, turning round and round, as if warming at a camp-fire.  Presently you lose consciousness of your own separate existence: you blend with the landscape, and become part and parcel of nature.

John Muir (1838 - 1914)

A Quote by Edward Markham on circle

He drew a circle that shut me out -
Heretic, rebel, a thing to flaunt.
But love and I had the wit to win;
We drew a circle and took him in.

A Quote by Zhang Longxi on circle, cyclic, inside, outside, within, without, detour, and end

What one looks for outside turns out to be present inside, but only to be discovered after a long detour of seeking externally, in all the wrong places...in a process of gradual reversal, the return of what moves forward in the shape of a circle, in which the end meets the initial point of departure.

The eye is the first circle; the horizon which it forms is the second; and throughout nature this primary figure is repeated without end.

A Quote by Starhawk on home, free, community, and circle

We are all longing to go home to some place we have never been - a place half-remembered and half-envisioned we can only catch glimpses of from time to time. Community. Somewhere, there are people to whom we can speak with passion without having the words catch in our throats. Somewhere a circle of hands will open to receive us, eyes will light up as we enter, voices will celebrate with us whenever we come into our own power. Community means strength that joins our strength to do the work that needs to be done. Arms to hold us when we falter. A circle of healing. A circle of friends. Someplace where we can be free.
