We have a great many problems to overcome, so I work on a lot of different boards trying to help in those important areas.Ed Begley Jr. Gyres Sayings By Ed Begley Jr.: We have lots of other problems with plastic in our oceans.

Wild animals, like wild places, are invaluable to us precisely because they are not us. They are uncompromisingly different. The paths they follow, the impulses that guide them, are of other orders. The seal's holding gaze, before it flukes to push another tunnel through the sea, the hare's run, the hawk's high gyres : such things are wild. Seeing them, you are made briefly aware of a world at work around and beside our own, a world operating in patterns and purposes that you do not share. These are creatures, you realise that live by voices inaudible to you.Robert Macfarlane Gyres Sayings By Robert Macfarlane: Wild animals, like wild places, are invaluable to us precisely because they are not us.
Swelter's eyes meet those of his enemy, and never has there held between four globes of gristle so sinister a hell of hatred. Had the flesh, the fibres, and the bones of the chef and those of Mr Flay been conjured away and away down that dark corridor leaving only their four eyes suspended in mid-air outside the Earl's door, then, surely, they must have reddened to the hue of Mars, reddened and smouldered, and at last broken into flame, so intense was their hatred - broken into flame and circled about one another in ever-narrowing gyres and in swifter and yet swifter flight until, merged into one sizzling globe of ire they must surely have fled, the four in one, leaving a trail of blood behind them in the cold grey air of the corridor, until, screaming as they fly beneath innumerable arches and down the endless passageways of Gormenghast, they found their eyeless bodies once again, and reentrenched themselves in startled sockets.Mervyn Peake Gyres Sayings By Mervyn Peake: Swelter's eyes meet those of his enemy, and never has there held between four globes

into his grim machine the winter he first went mad
as we both did in our thirties with still

our poems on pages held fast by gyres

in a swollen face. His breath was a venom

and not a few locked doors) never touched
my friend's throat. Praise

(for Franz Wright)

Sketches of mad skies spilling stars caught in spiraling gyres, diagrams for constructing sextants tall as a man and armillary spheres to mimic the motion of the cosmos.
