Swerve me? The path to my fixed purpose is laid with iron rails, whereon my soul is grooved to run.

Naught's an obstacle, naught's an angle to the iron way!Herman Melville Gorges Sayings By Herman Melville: Swerve me? The path to my fixed purpose is laid with iron rails, whereon my

But the plains do not continue forever, just as happiness and sorrow both eventually come to an end. Their first hint of the highlands was a rough stretch of land pitted with gorges and rugged valleys that were barren of cover and composed of rock as stubborn and sharp and unyielding as a saint. The jaran playfully called it krinye-tom, the little mountains; Tess called it hell and wondered what the big mountains were like.Kate Elliott Gorges Sayings By Kate Elliott: But the plains do not continue forever, just as happiness and sorrow both eventually come
It is manifestly contrary to the law of nature, however defined, that a handful of people should gorge themselves with superfluities while the hungry majority goes in need of necessities.Jean-Jacques Rousseau Gorges Sayings By Jean-Jacques Rousseau: It is manifestly contrary to the law of nature, however defined, that a handful of
There is a wisdom that is woe; but there is a woe that is madness. And there is a Catskill eagle in some souls that can alike dive down into the blackest gorges, and soar out of them again and become invisible in the sunny spaces. And even if he for ever flies within the gorge, that gorge is in the mountains; so that even in his lowest swoop the mountain eagle is still higher than other birds upon the plain, even though they soar.Herman Melville Gorges Sayings By Herman Melville: There is a wisdom that is woe; but there is a woe that is madness.
From Kathmandu there is a road through Gorkha Country to Pokhara, in the central foothills; farther west, no roads exist at all. The road winds through steep gorges of the Trisuli River, now in torrent; dirty whitecaps filled the rapids, and the brown flood was thickened every now and again by thunderous rockslides down the walls of the ravine.Peter Matthiessen Gorges Sayings By Peter Matthiessen: From Kathmandu there is a road through Gorkha Country to Pokhara, in the central foothills;
I have just drunk the waters of Changsha
And come to eat the fish of Wuchang.
Now I am swimming across the great Yangtze,
Looking afar to the open sky of Chu.
Let the wind blow and waves beat,
Better far than idly strolling in a courtyard.
Today I am at ease.
"It was by a stream that the Master said--
'Thus do things flow away!' "
Sails move with the wind.
Tortoise and Snake are still.
Great plans are afoot:
A bridge will fly to span the north and south,
Turning a deep chasm into a thoroughfare;
Walls of stone will stand upstream to the west
To hold back Wushan's clouds and rain
Till a smooth lake rises in the narrow gorges.
The mountain goddess if she is still there
Will marvel at a world so changed.
Mao Zedong Gorges Sayings By Mao Zedong: I have just drunk the waters of Changsha And come to eat the fish of
Among the gorges and ravines that hang on Los Angeles's shoulders like a necklace, Topanga - nestled in the cleavage of the Santa Monica Mountains - is the most singular of ornaments.Steve Erickson Gorges Sayings By Steve Erickson: Among the gorges and ravines that hang on Los Angeles's shoulders like a necklace, Topanga

In the belly of the furnace of creativity is a sexual fire; the flames twine about each other in fear and delight. The same sort of coiling, at a cooler, slower pace, is what the life of this planet looks like. The enormous spirals of typhoons, the twists and turns of mountain ranges and gorges, the waves and the deep ocean currents - a dragonlike writhing.Gary Snyder Gorges Sayings By Gary Snyder: In the belly of the furnace of creativity is a sexual fire; the flames twine
It is all very well for 2% of the population to live in a monastic state of meatlessness while everyone else gorges their way towards environmental meltdown or the nearest heart clinic. Vegetarianism is good for the willing minority, but not much use as a campaign tool.Tristram Stuart Gorges Sayings By Tristram Stuart: It is all very well for 2% of the population to live in a monastic

Love is the river of life in this world. Think not that ye know it who stand at the little tinkling rill, the first small fountain. Not until you have gone through the rocky gorges, and not lost the stream; not until you nave gone through the meadow, and the stream has widened and deepened until fleets could ride on its bosom; not until beyond the meadow you have come to the unfathomable ocean, and poured your treasures into its depths
not until then can you know what love is.
Henry Ward Beecher Gorges Sayings By Henry Ward Beecher: Love is the river of life in this world. Think not that ye know it
In a cruel twist of irony, they achieved the immortality they'd been seeking. It's believed that the hollows can live thousands of years, but it is a life of constant physical torment, of humiliating debasement - feeding on stray animals, living in isolation - and of insatiable hunger for the flesh of their former kin, because our blood is their only hope for salvation. If a hollow gorges itself on enough peculiars, it becomes a wight.Ransom Riggs Gorges Sayings By Ransom Riggs: In a cruel twist of irony, they achieved the immortality they'd been seeking. It's believed
What do you consider the most interesting man-made structure in the galaxy?
The dam they are building at the Three Gorges on the Yangtse. Though perhaps '"baffling'" would be a better word. Dams almost never do what they were intended to do, but create devastation beyond belief. And yet we keep on building them, and I can't help but wonder why. I'm convinced that if we go back far enough in the history of the human species, we will find some beaver genes creeping in there somewhere. It's the only explanation that makes sense.
Douglas Adams Gorges Sayings By Douglas Adams: What do you consider the most interesting man-made structure in the galaxy?The dam they are

Around existence twine, (Oh, bridge that hangs across the gorge!) ropes of twisted vine.Matsuo Basho Gorges Sayings By Matsuo Basho: Around existence twine, (Oh, bridge that hangs across the gorge!) ropes of twisted vine.
My friend Meyer, the economist, says that cretins are the only humans who can be absolutely certain of their own sanity. All the rest of us go rocketing along rickety rails over spavined bridges and along the edge of bottomless gorges. The man who believes himself free of any taint of madness is a damned liar.John D. MacDonald Gorges Sayings By John D. MacDonald: My friend Meyer, the economist, says that cretins are the only humans who can be
My school was six miles away from where I lived on the farm. I had to walk and run, there and back every day, through gorges and over rivers. If I was late, there was a very big stick waiting for me.Haile Gebrselassie Gorges Sayings By Haile Gebrselassie: My school was six miles away from where I lived on the farm. I had
I looked up at the ivory towers above us all. Nowhere else equals the feral design of this city. Tall skyscrapers that act as gorges hollowing out between flat cement dancing into narrow alleyways like bottomless pits. Building walls rusted the color of blood. Sometimes when you look down the horizon from afar the city looks wider than it is, like a thin field of magical lights gleaming with the hopes of children and idealists; a light on at midnight in one of the penthouses or the changing hues of the Empire State Building. Most of the time though, the city is covered with a layer of honking cars and greed, sirens and the war cry of solicitors, all full of brambles and impenetrable conscience; garbage, steaming manholes, and heat waves twirling smog and pollution through your lungs like mirages as you walk breathlessly through a boiling desert.Bruce Crown Gorges Sayings By Bruce Crown: I looked up at the ivory towers above us all. Nowhere else equals the feral
What's the difference between bulimics and anorexics?" I ask. "Anorexics are anorexics all the time," she says, "I'm only bulimic when I'm throwing up." Wow. She sounds just like my dad! "I'm only an alcoholic when I get drunk." There are all kinds of addicts, I guess. We all have pain. And we all look for ways to make the pain go away. Penelope gorges on her pain and then throws it up and flushes it away. My dad drinks his pain away. (107)Sherman Alexie Gorges Sayings By Sherman Alexie: What's the difference between bulimics and anorexics?" I ask. "Anorexics are anorexics all the time,"
From deep quiet gorges and wilderness of the holy mountain came to her wonderful, like silver mist, dreams and silently whispered into her ears that she was designed for extraordinary deeds.Osyp Nazaruk Gorges Sayings By Osyp Nazaruk: From deep quiet gorges and wilderness of the holy mountain came to her wonderful, like
Even Solomon, he says, "the man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead." Give not thyself up, then, to fire, lest it invert thee, deaden thee, as for the time it did me. There is a wisdom that is woe; but there is a woe that is madness. And there is a Catskill eagle in some souls that can alike dive down into the blackest gorges, and soar out of them again and become invisible in the sunny spaces. And even if he for ever flies within the gorge, that gore is in the mountains; so that even in his lowest swoop the mountain eagle is still higher than other birds upon the plain, even though they soar. (pg 465)Herman Melville Gorges Sayings By Herman Melville: Even Solomon, he says, "the man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall
