Famous quotes containing the word wild:

    For six years you shall sow your land and gather in its yield; but the seventh year you shall let it rest and lie fallow, so that the poor of your people may eat; and what they leave the wild animals may eat. You shall do the same with your vineyard, and with your olive orchard.
    Bible: Hebrew, Exodus 23:10,11.

    Every modern male has, lying at the bottom of his psyche, a large, primitive being covered with hair down to his feet. Making contact with this Wild Man is the step the Eighties male or the Nineties male has yet to take. That bucketing-out process has yet to begin in our contemporary culture.
    Robert Bly (b. 1926)

    The march of conquest through wild provinces, may be the march of Mind; but not the march of Love.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
