wind

A Quote by Black Elk on indian, circle, sky, earth, wind, stars, birds, seasons, life, and human power

You have noticed that everything as Indian does
is in a circle, and that is because the Power of the World always works in circles, and everything tries to be round..... The Sky is round, and I have heard
that the earth is round like a ball, and so are
all the stars. The wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nest in circles, for
theirs is the same religion as ours....

Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. The life of a man is a circle from
childhood to childhood, and so it is in
everything where power moves.

A Quote by Doreen Virtue on deadwood, storms, wind, and swept away

The wind is a natural way to loosen and release dead leaves and branches, just as emotional and life-situation storms are opportunities for humans to release 'deadwood' and anything needing to be swept away.

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on disciple, peace, rock, mass, wind, forms, sounds, odors, tastes, contact, desired, undesired, unwavering, steadfast, mind, deliverance, freedom, and liberation

And for a disciple thus freed, in whose heart dwells peace, there is
nothing to be added to what has been done, and naught more remains for
him to do. Just as a rock of one solid mass remains unshaken by the
wind, even so, neither forms, nor sounds, nor odors, nor tastes, nor
contacts of any kind, neither the desired, nor the undesired, can
cause such an one to waver. Steadfast is his mind, gained is
deliverance.

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)

A Quote by Marianne on biker, steel horse, marianne goldweber, village, cleveland, native american, peace, freedom, change, wind, and love

Steele Horse

Wind in my hair astride my steed
Ancient memories of great prairies
Abundant with Buffalo
Majestic mountains
Gold grass waving
Freedom in the wind
Over ancient lands
Colors magnificent
Warrior pride
The days of wild ponies a memory
The horse is steel
The spirit lives
The ancestors in the wind call my name.

Forget not that the earth likes to feel your bare feet
and the winds long to play with your hair.

A Quote by Vikram Oberoi on wind, journey, mountains, inertia, and pull

When the wind calls,
 You know,
 That somewhere in the mountains,
 It has found the answers that you were looking for.
 The pull of the horizon overcomes the inertia of reason...
 And you just have to go

A Quote by Plato on philosophy, madness, justice, nature, wind, peace, and hope

"Those who belong to this small class have tasted how sweet and blessed a posession philosophy is, and have also seen enough of the madness of the multitude; and they know that no politician is honest, nor is there any champion of justice at whose side they may fight and be saved. Such an one may be compared to a man who has fallen among wild beasts-- he will not join in the wickedness of his fellows, but neither is he able singly to resist all their fierce natures, and therefore seeing that he would be of no use to the State or to his friends, and reflecting that he would have to throw away his life without doing any good either to himself or others, he holds his peace, and goes his own way. He is like one who, in the storm of dust and sleet which the driving wind hurries along, retires under the shelter of a wall; and seeing the rest of mankind full of wickedness, he is content, if only he can live his own life and be pure from evil or unrighteousness, and depart in peace and good-will, with bright hopes."

Plato (c.427 - 347 BC)
