A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on life, moon, snow, stars, and winter

Up and away for life! be fleet!-
The frost-king ties my fumbling feet,
Sings in my ears, my hands are stones,
Curdles the blood to the marble bones,
Tugs at the heart-strings, numbs the sense,
And hems in life with narrowing fence.
Well, in this broad bed lie and sleep,-
The punctual stars will vigil keep,-
Embalmed by purifying cold;
The winds shall sing their dead-march old,
The snow is no ignoble shroud,
The moon thy mourner, and the cloud.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

A Quote by Alani on snow, winter, spring, wise, man, bored, life, words, quote, chinese, and boots

a wise man once asked,

"When the snow melts what do you do?"

"Stay inside and wish it were spring..." replied the girl.

After slapping himself on his forehead he sighed and replied,

"You avoid the yellow snow..." he said pointing to her boots now sunken in yellowish substance.

A Quote by Pablo Neruda on winter, snow, metaphor, earth, belonging, hands, meadows, and fields

I am a book of snow,
a spacious hand, an open meadow,
a circle that waits,
I belong to the earth and its winter.

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on thoreau, stormy weather, snow, woods, and brute nature

"Take long walks in stormy weather or through deep snows in the fields and woods,
if you would keep your spirits up. Deal with brute nature.
Be cold and hungry and weary."

A Quote by Allen Ginsberg on america, cocaine, and snow

Nobody saves America by sniffing cocaine. Jiggling your knees blankeyed in the rain, when it snows in your nose you catch cold in your brain.

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
