A Quote by Virginia Woolf on books, secondhand, and wild

Secondhand books are wild books, homeless books; they have come together in vast flocks of variegated feather, and have a charm which the domesticated volumes of the library lack.

Virginia Woolf (1882 - 1941)

A Quote by Thomas Berry on wildness, wild, life, love, humanity, animals, creativity, poetry, art, and instinct

Wildness we might consider as the root of the authentic spontaneities of any being. It is that wellspring of creativity whence comes the instinctive activities that enable all living beings to obtain their food, to find shelter, to bring forth their young: to sing and dance and fly through the air and swim through the depths of the sea. This is the same inner tendency that evokes the insight of the poet, the skill of the artist and the power of the shaman.

A Quote by unknown on women, tame, wild, free, and film quote

Maybe some women aren't meant to be tamed. Maybe they need to run free until they find someone just as wild to run with them.

A Quote by Aldo Leopold on nature, rights, preservation, and wild

"There are some of us who can live without wild things, and some who cannot.  For us of the minority, the opportunity to see geese or wild flowers is a right as inalienable as free speech."

A Quote by Rudyard Kipling on wild, cat, best beloved, and just so stories

Hear and attend and listen; for this is what befell and be-happened and became and was, O my Best Beloved, when the Tame animals were wild. The dog was wild, and the Horse was wild, and the Cow was wild, and the Sheep was wild, and the Pig was wild --as wild as wild could be -- and they walked in the Wet Wild Woods by their wild lones. But the wildest of all the wild animals was the Cat. He walked by himself and all places were alike to him

Rudyard Kipling (1865 - 1936)

A Quote by John Eliot on genius, crazy, wild, weird, and exceptional

Anyone who strays too far from the majority view or the conventional wisdom is bound to be labeled “arrogant,” “a maverick,” “a Wildman,” “weird,” or even “crazy.”

If you really want to break from the pack, you have to risk being perceived to be as eccentric as these people. You have to think exception-ally—a LOT! 

John Eliot
