Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.
View quotes by A A Milne

Even as recently as 1969, I still had the illusion, you see, that atomic energy could be a safe alternative to damming all our rivers for power.
View quotes by David Brower

I have definitely not said anything racist. If I had said sorry I could have stayed on, but I am not sorry. I don't feel I have anything to apologise for [on references to Enoch Powell's Rivers of Blood' speech]
View quotes by Nigel Hastilow

Estuaries are coastal bays, harbours, sounds and lagoons - places where rivers meet the sea. [Geography lesson time!]
View quotes by Jim Gerlach

Many fortunes, like rivers, have a pure source, but grow muddy as they grow large
View quotes by Jean-Antoine Petit-Senn

A man's country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.
View quotes by George William Curtis

Forests, lakes, and rivers, clouds and winds, stars and flowers, stupendous glaciers and crystal snowflakes - every form of animate or inanimate existence, leaves its impress upon the soul of man.
View quotes by Orison Swett Marden

The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers and cities; but to know someone here and there who thinks and feels with us, and though distant, is close to us in spirit - this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.
View quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Only another writer, someone who had worked his heart out on a good book which sold three thousand copies, could appreciate the thrill that overcame me one April morning in 1973 when Dean Rivers of our small college in Georgia appeared at my classroom door
View quotes by James Michener

To understand the mysteries of life you must look around and within. You will see patterns everywhere; patterns that seem to manifest themselves over and over again. These patterns exist intertwined within nature and man bridging the gap between the enigma of self and universe. You see them in spiraling galaxies and the Mandelbrot fractal of fossilized Ammonoidea; growing from the unknown to atoms to molecules to solar systems to galaxies to the paradoxical expanses of the universe with origins and destinations unknown; just like us in birth and death. The similarities of tree branches, rivers and blood veins. The power of cellular division and nuclear fission, the patterns of finger prints like endoplasmic reticulum, or a black opal's play of fire like the nebula of supernova. Moon shots are like protoplasmic lurches, while simple thoughts and observations of the nature around us take us beyond the unknown. The clues to the great mystery are all around us and deep within us.
