Famous quotes containing the word wild:

    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)

    This wild night, gathering the washing as if it were flowers
    animal vines twisting over the line and
    slapping my face lightly, soundless merriment
    in the gesticulations of shirtsleeves ...
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    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)
