Journeys

Famous quotes containing the word journeys:

    It was a favor for which to be forever silent to be shown this vision. The earth beneath had become such a flitting thing of lights and shadows as the clouds had been before. It was not merely veiled to me, but it had passed away like the phantom of a shadow, skias onar, and this new platform was gained. As I had climbed above storm and cloud, so by successive days’ journeys I might reach the region of eternal day, beyond the tapering shadow of the earth.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Traveller take heed for journeys undertaken in the dark of the year.
    Go in the bright blaze of Autumn’s equinox.
    Margaret Abigail Walker (b. 1915)
