eternity

A Quote by Kolbein Falkeid on blue, earth, eternity, life, light, sea, solitude, soul, and stars

Like the prodigal son
I return to you, the sea.
You who scare the idylls off
into tame inner fjords, bays and inlets
because you are much too majestic for weekend yachtsmen,
outboard motors and hobby anglers.
Without so much as a blink you swallow the sun
like a raw egg-yolk for supper
and at daybreak you lift heavy banks of cloud
dense with rain and squalls, a wet cloth
on sleep-heavy eyes and throbbing temples.
With the horizon like a diadem about your brows
you write your salt letters to the shore.
Land changes,
men and beasts come and go.
Only you
live your solitary life, the world's
blue eyes fixed on the stars and eternity.

If the Earth has a soul,
it swims in you.

A Quote by Kolbein Falkeid on life, light, eternity, and nature

It's morning again, little hope,
and the world's drying of with fresh-laundered sunshine.
Life's face is never the same
though we may look at it for all eternity.

A Quote by John Muir on life, eternity, universe, earth, and environment

This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never all dried at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn and gloaming, on seas and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.

John Muir (1838 - 1914)
