Famous quotes containing the word howling:

    Here is this vast, savage, howling mother of ours, Nature, lying all around, with such beauty, and such affection for her children, as the leopard; and yet we are so early weaned from her breast to society, to that culture which is exclusively an interaction of man on man,—a sort of breeding in and in, which produces at most a merely English nobility, a civilization destined to have a speedy limit.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The cannon thunders ... limbs fly in all directions ... one can hear the groans of victims and the howling of those performing the sacrifice ... it’s Humanity in search of happiness.
    Charles Baudelaire (1821–1867)

    Generally speaking, a howling wilderness does not howl: it is the imagination of the traveler that does the howling.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
