Famous quotes containing the word awakening:

    The awakening is
    to transformation,
    word after word.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    Art should exhilarate, and throw down the walls of circumstance on every side, awakening in the beholder the same sense of universal relation and power which the work evinced in the artist, and its highest effect is to make new artists.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Measure your health by your sympathy with morning and spring. If there is no response in you to the awakening of nature—if the prospect of an early morning walk does not banish sleep, if the warble of the first bluebird does not thrill you—know that the morning and spring of your life are past. Thus may you feel your pulse.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
