A Quote by Vincent Canby on colors and magic

Through the magic of motion pictures, someone who's never left Peoria knows the softness of a Paris spring, the color of a Nile sunset, the sorts of vegetation one will find along the upper Amazon and that Big Ben has not yet gone digital.

Vincent Canby (1924 -)

A Quote by unknown on country, failure, god, magic, music, needs, prayer, and words

How many of us ever stop to think Of music as a wondrous magic link With God; taking sometimes the place of prayer, When words have failed us 'neath the weight of care' Music, that knows no country, race or creed; But gives to each according to his need.

A Quote by unknown on freedom, magic, people, and sanity

So let me get this straight. You want to fly on a magic carpet to see the King of the Potato People and plead with him for your freedom, and you're telling me you're completely sane?

A Quote by unknown on confusion, consequences, delusion, life, logic, magic, mystery, and questions

Life would have no consequence, If all I saw made perfect sense. Life would not be magical, If all I saw was logical. So I question all I see, To try and solve the mystery. I've been living under delusion, Led astray by my confusion.

A Quote by Thomas Eugene (Tom) Robbins on blush, divinity, and magic

Hold on to your divine blush, your innate rosy magic, or end up brown. Once you're brown, you'll find out you're blue. As blue as indigo. And you know what that means. Indigo. Indigoing. Indigone.

A Quote by Thomas Moore on achievement, art, balance, earth, extremism, garden, labor, life, magic, nature, peace, pleasure, practice, spirituality, work, world, and path

The garden reconciles human art and wild nature, hard work and deep pleasure, spiritual practice and the material world. It is a magical place because it is not divided. The many divisions and polarizations that terrorize a disenchanted world find peaceful accord among mossy rock walls, rough stone paths, and trimmed bushes. Maybe a garden sometimes seems fragile, for all its earth and labor, because it achieves such an extraordinary delicate balance of nature and human life, naturalness and artificiality. It has its own liminality, its point of balance between great extremes.

Thomas Moore (1779 - 1852)
