"Suddenly, I was stopped by a quiet song . .Somebody stood, swaying slowly on the road,In the darkest shadow by a puddle,And low above it a small tree grew . .It mightve been a wild cherry tree . .He kept singing, watching the puddle fill . .I dragged the pine through the water,And with my other hand steadied my sack,Where a bottle of red vino dangled . .He didnt move, but kept on singing . .Should I have stopped thereAnd joined his singing? . .Had he foundThe one happy tree? . .No one knows where it grows—Or what it looks like . .And who is allowed to recognize it? . .I never stood under it,Even to wait for rain to passOr watch between the dropsThe silent froth appear . .Swaying, he kept on singing . .Otherwise, he would have fallenAnd the rain stopped . .He danced his own rainUnder that tree . .I cant do such things . .Perhaps it was a wolf? . ."

Quotes About Fun Sundays

"I did grow up next door to Steve McQueen, who was a very famous movie star at the time, but as a kid it didnt impress me. We always had great fun with him. He would take us out on Sundays on his motorcycles, riding around in the desert; he was like a second father." - Author: Herb Ritts

Quotes About Ocean Breeze

"A needle is such a small brittle thing. It is easily broken. It can hold but one fragile thread. But if the needle is sharp, it can pierce the coarsest cloth. Ply the needle in and out of a canvas and with a great length of thread one can make a sail to move a ship across the ocean. In such a way can a sharp glossy tongue, with the thinnest of thread of a rumor, stitch together a story to flap in the breeze. Hoist that story upon the pillar of superstitious belief and a whole town can be pulled along with the wind of fear." - Author: Kathleen Kent

Quotes About Pettiness At Work

"This is stupid.""Look. You think how stupid people are most of the time. Old men drink. Women at a village fair. Boys throwing stones at birds. Life. The foolishness and the vanity, the selfishness and the waste. The pettiness, the silliness. You think in war it must be different. Must be better. With death around the corner, men united against hardship, the cunning of the enemy, people must think harder, faster, be...better. Be heroic.Only its just the same. In fact do you know, because of all that pressure, and worry, and fear, its worse. There arent many men who think clearest when the stakes are highest. So people are even stupider in war than the rest of the time. Thinking about how theyll dodge the blame, or grab the glory, or save their skins, rather than about what will actually work. Theres no job that forgives stupidity more than soldiering. No job that encourages it more." - Author: Joe Abercrombie

Quotes About Bela Bartok

"Temeljno odkritje optike je, na primer, da bela in črna nista barvi kot modra, zelena in rdeča. Bela je kombinacija vseh barv vidnega spektra svetlobe, črna pa je odsotnost tega spektra in zato tudi bele. To se pravi, da je bela integracija vseh vidnih oblik žarenja, črna pa je odsotnost žarenja... Bela predstavlja celoto duha... Črna predstavlja obup, jezo in bes, ki so odsotnost ljubezni, sočutja in odpuščanja. Pravimo, da je oseba, ki čuti te stvari, črnogleda." - Author: Gary Zukav

Quotes About Nook

"I suppose it had something to do with it being a secret, just how much it had meant to me. Maybe all of us at Hailsham had little secrets like that--little private nooks created out of thin air where we could go off alone with our fears and longings. But the very fact that we had such needs would have felt wrong to us at the time--like somehow we were letting the side down." - Author: Kazuo Ishiguro
