Famous quotes containing the word wild:

    The night is darkening round me,
    The wild winds coldly blow;
    But a tyrant spell has bound me
    And I cannot, cannot go.
    Emily Brontë (1818–1848)

    Men are all right for friends, but as soon as you marry them they turn into cranky old fathers, even the wild ones. They begin to tell you what’s sensible and what’s foolish, and want you to stick at home all the time. I prefer to be foolish when I feel like it, and be accountable to nobody.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)

    I must down to the seas again for the call of the running tide Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied.
    John Masefield (1874–1967)
