quiet

A Quote by Thomas Babington, Lord Macaulay on generations, lies, quiet, and silence

In that temple of silence and reconciliation where the enmities of twenty generations lie buried, in the great Abbey which has during many ages afforded a quiet resting-place to those whose minds and bodies have been shattered by the contentions of the Great Hall.

A Quote by Alfred, Lord TENNYSON on cruelty, immortality, lies, quiet, and world

The woods decay, the woods decay and fall, The vapours weep their burthen to the ground, Man comes and tills the field and lies beneath, And after many summer dies the swan. Me only cruel immortality Consumes: I wither slowly in thine arms, Here at the quiet limit of the world.

Lord Alfred Tennyson (1809 - 1892)

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on direction, grace, intelligence, justice, kindness, problems, quiet, style, talent, thought, and winning

Looking at the championship-winning quarterbacks, Edwards remembered their particular talents: Marc Wilson: He probably had more grace and form and style than anybody I've seen who's 6'5". He played like he was 6'1". A very fluid athlete. He had great speed. Look at the pictures of him. Everything's symmetric. His back is straight, his knees are bent, his feet are in the right direction. Just a terrific athlete. And highly intelligent. He wasn't a real take charge guy. He had a kind of high pitched voice, and that sort of compounded his image problem. But he was much more competitive and tougher than you thought. In his quiet way he'd always get it done.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on medicine, mind, quiet, words, and taoism

My own words are not the medicine, but a prescription; not the destination, but a map to help you reach it. When you get there, quiet your mind and close your mouth. Don't analyze the Tao. Strive instead to live it: silently, undividedly, with your whole harmonious being.

A Quote by Kendrew LaSalles on children, death, good, justice, play, quiet, sister, tears, time, understanding, war, and wisdom

Once upon a time, in the land of Hush-a-Bye, Around about the wonderous days of yore, They came across a sort of box, all bound with chains and locked with locks, And labeled, "Kindly Do Not Touch... It's War". A decree was issued 'round about, all with a flourish and a shout, And a gaily-coloured mascot tripping lightly on before: "Don't fiddle with this deadly box, or break the chains, or pick the locks, And please, don't ever mess about with War". Well, the children understood; children happen to be good, And were just as good in those wonderous days of yore. They didn't try to break the locks, or break into that deadly box, And never tried to play about with War. Mommies didn't either; sisters, aunts, nor grannies neither; 'Cause they were quiet and sweet and pretty In those wonderous days of yore. Well, very much the same as now, and really not to blame somehow, For opening up that deadly box of War. But someone did... Someone battered in the lid, and spilled the insides all across the floor: A sort of bouncy, bumpy ball, made up of flags and guns and all The tears and the horror and the death that goes with War. It bounced right out, and went bashing all about Bumping into everything in store; And what was sad and most unfair, was that it really didn't seem to care Much who it bumped, or why, or what, or for. It bumped the children mainly, and I'll tell you this quite plainly, It bumps them everyday, and more and more; And leaves them dead and burned and crying, Thousands of them sick and dying, 'Cause when it bumps, it's very, very sore. There is a way to stop the ball... it isn't very hard at all; All it takes is wisdom, and I'm absolutely sure We could get it back inside the box, and bind the chains and lock the locks, But no one seems to want to save the children anymore. Well, that's the way it all appears, 'Cause it's been bouncing 'round for years and years, In spite of all the wisdom wizzed since those wonderous days of yore; And the time they came across the box, All bound with chains and locked with locks, And labeled, "Kindly Do Not Touch... It's War".
