Carolino Canyon quotes by Jeri Smith-Ready
#1. Beautiful doesn't begin to describe it. A flower is beautiful. But this is beautiful the way that a person is beautiful- terrifying with its jagged edges, yet seductive with its crevices that hide so many secrets. #Quote by Jeri Smith-Ready
Carolino Canyon quotes by Jodi Taylor
#2. He had fallen for Cal like a sperm-whale failing to clear the Grand Canyon on a bicycle. #Quote by Jodi Taylor
Carolino Canyon quotes by Frederick Lenz
#3. The Grand Canyon is living evidence of the power of water over a period of time. The power may not manifest immediately. Water can be very powerful, like a tidal wave. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Carolino Canyon quotes by Tom Robbins
#4. In a society that is essentially designed to organize, direct, and gratify mass impulses, what is there to minister to the silent zones of man as an individual? Religion? Art? Nature? No, the church has turned religion into standardized public spectacle, and the museum has done the same for art. The Grand Canyon and Niagara Falls have been looked at so much that they've become effete, sucked empty by too many stupid eyes. What is there to minister to the silent zones of man as an individual? How about a cold chicken bone on a paper plate at midnight, how about a lurid lipstick lengthening or shortening at your command, how about a Styrofoam nest abandoned by a 'bird' you've never known, how about a pair of windshield wipers pursuing one another futilely while you drive home alone through a downpour, how about something beneath a seat touched by your shoe at the movies, how about worn pencils, cute forks, fat little radios, boxes of bow ties, and bubbles on the side of a bathtub? Yes, these are the things, these kite strings and olive oil cans and Valentine hearts stuffed with nougat, that form the bond between the autistic vision and the experiential world, it is to show these things in their true mysterious light that is the purpose of the moon. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Carolino Canyon quotes by Brenda Peterson
#5. When I describe for my far-away friends the Northwest's subtle shades of weather - from gloaming skies of 'high-gray' to 'low-gray' with violet streaks like the water's delicate aura - they wonder if my brain and body have, indeed, become water-logged. Yet still, I find myself praising the solace and privacy of fine, silver drizzle, the comforting cloaks of salt, mold, moss, and fog, the secretive shelter of cedar and clouds.

Whether it's in the Florida Keys, along the rocky Maine coast, within the Gulf of Mexico's warm curves, on the brave Outer Banks; or, for those who nestle near inland seas, such as the brine-steeped Great Salk Lake or the Midwest's Great Lakes - water is alive and in relationship with those of us who are blessed with such a world-shaping, yet abiding, intimate ally.

Every day I am moved by the double life of water - her power and her humility. But most of all, I am grateful for the partnership of this great body of inland sea. Living by water, I am never alone. Just as water has sculpted soil and canyon, it also molds my own living space, and every story I tell.

…Living by water restores my sense of balance and natural rhythm - the ebb and flow of high tides and low tides, so like the rise and fall of everyday life. Wind, water, waves are not simply a backdrop to my life, they are steady companions. And that is the grace, the gift of inviting nature to live inside my home. Like a Chambered Nautilus I spin out my #Quote by Brenda Peterson
Carolino Canyon quotes by Joe Niemczura
#6. He looked at her face and hesitated. He looked up at the canyon walls. Here on the sandbar, it was eerily quiet except for the tinkle of water over the rocks. A large bird made lazy soaring circles way up in the sky, almost invisible due to the angle of the sun. God forgive me, he thought. Then he touched Ranjit's lighter to the small sheaf of dried grass and threw it on the pyre. He was surprised at the flash when it caught fire. It wouldn't be long, he thought. I will move on, but I will never forget this place.
(from The Sacrament of the Goddess) #Quote by Joe Niemczura
Carolino Canyon quotes by Ana Ortiz
#7. I take my dog, Fideo, out for a hike in Runyon Canyon three times a week. It's about 45 minutes round-trip with a variation of super steep hills and flat areas. He's always running ahead, which helps me push myself, especially up the hills. #Quote by Ana Ortiz
Carolino Canyon quotes by Aron Ralston
#8. I limited myself to one shout a day. But I didn't like the sound of my voice. It sounded panicked, it sounded scared. And I knew from experience you can't hear more than 50 yards either way down a canyon. #Quote by Aron Ralston
Carolino Canyon quotes by Diane Keaton
#9. Working with Jack [Nicholson] is sort of like standing in front of the Grand Canyon. #Quote by Diane Keaton
Carolino Canyon quotes by Donald Miller
#10. I think we have two choices in the face of such big beauty: terror or awe. And this is precisely why we attempt to chart God, because we want to be able to predict Him, to dissect Him, to carry Him around in our dog and pony show. We are too proud to feel awe and too fearful to feel terror. We reduce Him to math so we don't have to fear Him, and yet the Bible tells us fear is the appropriate response, that it is the beginning of wisdom. Does this mean God is going to hurt us? No. But I stood on the edge of the Grand Canyon once, behind a railing, and though I was never going to fall off the edge, I feared the thought of it. It is that big of a place, that wonderful of a landscape. #Quote by Donald Miller
Carolino Canyon quotes by Richard Yates
#11. How small and neat and comically serious the other men looked, with their grey-flecked crew cuts and their button-down collars and their brisk little hurrying feet! There were endless desperate swarms of them, hurrying through the station and the streets, and an hour from now they would all be still. The waiting mid-town office buildings would swallow them up and contain them, so that to stand in one tower looking out across the canyon to another would be to inspect a great silent insectarium displaying hundreds of tiny pink men in white shirts, forever shifting papers and frowning into telephones, acting out their passionate little dumb show under the supreme indifference of the rolling spring clouds. #Quote by Richard Yates
Carolino Canyon quotes by Tana French
#12. I just knew nothing in the world, not the Mona Lisa walking through the Grand Canyon with the Holy Grail in one hand and a winning Lotto ticket in the other, was ever going to be that beautiful. Kevin #Quote by Tana French
Carolino Canyon quotes by Martha Clark
#13. Martha told me, I don't know how you're going to talk about romance in your book, but you're going to have to because its truly part of all our lives down there-and in a big way- because its an incredibly sensuous environment. Think of how many times you've fallen in love down there, and how many times people have fallen in love with you. Its a place where we shine. We're the happiest in our lives. We're vibrant. We're just so full of life, and not only does that put you in the mood for love, it sets you up for it. People are really drawn to people who are shining, who feel so happy where they are and who they are and what they're doing and who they're doing it with. #Quote by Martha Clark
Carolino Canyon quotes by Ted Hughes
#14. Some word - from before this translation #Quote by Ted Hughes
Carolino Canyon quotes by Yvonne Woon
#15. Who is he?"
Eleanor lowered her voice, the name rolling off her tongue like a dark secret. "Dante Berlin."
I laughed. "Dante? Like the Dante who wrote the Inferno? Did he pick that name just to cultivate his 'dark and mysterious' persona?"
Eleanor shook her head in disapproval. "Just wait till you see him. You won't be laughing then."
I rolled my eyes. "I bet his real name is something boring like Eugene or Dwayne."
I expected Eleanor to laugh or say something in return, but instead she gave me a concerned look. I ignored it.
"He sounds like a snob to me. I bet he's one of those guys who know they're good-looking. He probably hasn't even read the Inferno. It's easy to pretend you're smart when you don't to anyone."
Eleanor still didn't respond. "Shh . . ." she muttered under her breath.
But before I could say "What?" I heard a cough behind me. Oh God, I thought to myself, and slowly turned around.
"Hi," he said with a half grin that seemed to be mocking me.
And that's how I met Dante Berlin.
So how do you describe someone who leaves you speechless?
He was beautiful. Not Monet beautiful or white sandy beach beautiful or even Grand Canyon beautiful. It was both more overwhelming and more delicate. Like gazing into the night sky and feeling incredibly small in comparison. Like holding a shell in your hand and wondering how nature was able to make something so complex yet to perfect: his eyes, dark and pensive; his messy #Quote by Yvonne Woon
Carolino Canyon quotes by Tamora Pierce
#16. I knew it!" he cried, jubilant. "I thought 'twas you, but there's more of you now. You should've seen
the likes of her, boys," he said, turning towards the other convicts as he pointed at Kel. "We was all outlaws, livin' on the edges, and this bunch of pages stumbled into our camp. We chased 'em back in a canyon, and her -" he jabbed his finger at Kel - "she gutted ol' Breakbone Dell, and him the meanest dog-skinner you'd ever hope to meet. Stood there afoot, her and her spear, cool as meltwater with Breakbone ridin' down on her with that neck-cutter sword of his. First time she got 'im in the leg, second in the tripes, and he was done. Her and six lads held us all back, just them. There she was, eyes like stone and that bloody spear in her hand. Lady." He bowed deep.

Kel looked at him, not sure what to say. Finally she asked, "What's your name, soldier?"

"Me? Gilab Lofts - Gil. Lady. It's - it's good to see you well." He bowed again and returned to his
seat, whispering with the men on either side of him.
Kel waited for them to quiet once again before she said ruefully, "I'm not sure that being known for
gutting a man is exactly a recommendation for a commander."

"It is in the north!" cried someone. Several men laughed outright; others grinned. #Quote by Tamora Pierce
Carolino Canyon quotes by Cliff Martinez
#17. I live in Topanga Canyon, which is like a faux-rustic enclave in Los Angeles. I love the sounds of all the critters outside - the frogs, owls, crickets, and birds. Some of the birds around here are pretty accomplished musicians. You can learn a lot from them. #Quote by Cliff Martinez
Carolino Canyon quotes by Joan Johnston
#18. I hurt my hip, too."
"Let me see."
She made a face and yelped when her cheek protested even that slight movement. "You don't need to see my hip. It's fine."
"If the skin's broken, it'll need cleaning, too," he said, unbuckling her belt.
"Stop that."
"Think of me as your doctor," he said, as he unsnapped and then unzipped her jeans.
"My doctor doesn't usually undress me," she snapped. "And my patients already come undressed."
He laughed. "Life your hips," he said. "Up!" he ordered, when she hesitated.
She put her one good hand on his shoulder to brace herself and lifted her hips as he pulled her torn jeans down. To her surprise, her bikini underwear was shredded, and the skin underneath was bloody. "Uh-oh."
She was still staring at the injury on her hip when she felt him pulling off her boots. She started to protest, saw the warning look in his eyes, and shut her mouth. He pulled her jeans off, leaving her legs bare above her white boot socks. "Was that really necessary?"
"You're decent," he said, straightening the tails of her Western shirt over her shredded bikini underwear. "I can put your boots back on if you like."
Bay shook her head and laughed. "Just get the first-aid kit, and let me take care of myself."
He grimaced. "If I'm not mistaken, you packed the first-aid kit in your saddlebags."
Bay winced. "You're right." She stared down the canyon as far as she could see. There was no sign of her horse. "How lo #Quote by Joan Johnston
Carolino Canyon quotes by Raymond Chandler
#19. Then there were no more houses, just the burnt foothills and the cement ribbon and a sheer drop on the left into the coolness of a nameless canyon, and on the right heat bouncing off the seared clay bank at whose edge a few unbeatable wild flowers clawed and hung on like naughty children who won't go to bed. #Quote by Raymond Chandler
Carolino Canyon quotes by Lidia Yuknavitch
#20. Leslie Marmon Silko whispers the story is long. No, longer. Longer than that even. Longer than anything. With Anne Sexton and Sylvia Plath drink at the bar. Laugh the dark laughter in the dark light. Sing a dark drunken song of men. Make a slurry toast. Rock back and forth, and drink the dark, and bask in the wallow of women knowing what women know. Just for a night. When you need to feel the ground of your life and the heart of the world, there will be a bonfire at the edge of a canyon under a night sky where Joy Harjo will sing your bonesong. Go ahead-with Anne Carson - rebuild the wreckage of a life a word at a time, ignoring grammar and the forms that keep culture humming. Make word war and have it out and settle it, scattering old meanings like hacked to pieces paper doll confetti. The lines that are left … they are awake and growling. With Virginia Woolf there will perhaps be a long walk in a garden or along a shore, perhaps a walk that will last all day. She will put her arm in yours and gaze out. At your backs will be history. In front of you, just the ordinary day, which is of course your entire life. Like language. The small backs of words. Stretching out horizonless. I am in a midnight blue room. A writing room. With a blood red desk. A room with rituals and sanctuaries. I made it for myself. It took me years. I reach down below my desk and pull up a bottle of scotch. Balvenie. 30 year. I pour myself an amber shot. I drink. Warm lips, throat. I close my eyes. I am #Quote by Lidia Yuknavitch
Carolino Canyon quotes by Aron Ralston
#21. That boulder did what it was there to do. Boulders fall. That's their nature. It did the only natural thing it could do. It was set up, but it was waiting for you. Without you coming along and pulling it, it would still be stuck where it had been for who knows how long. You did this, Aron. You created it. You chose to come here today; you chose to do this descent into the slot canyon by yourself. You chose not to tell anyone where you were going. You chose to turn away from the women who were there to keep you from getting in this trouble. You created this accident. You wanted it to be like this. You have been heading for this situation for a long time. Look how far you came to find this spot. It's not that you're getting what you deserve - you're getting what you wanted. #Quote by Aron Ralston
Carolino Canyon quotes by Max Lucado
#22. And that he, who can dig the Grand Canyon with his pinkie, thinks you're worth his death on Roman timber. Christ is the reward of Christianity. #Quote by Max Lucado
Carolino Canyon quotes by Lisa Schroeder
#23. There are so many places I want to visit. When I'm a flight attendant, I can visit the Grand Canyon one day and be in Hawaii the next. I can't imagine a more perfect job. - IB We #Quote by Lisa Schroeder
Carolino Canyon quotes by Charlie N. Holmberg
#24. Crouching, Ceony felt the edge of the giant crack. None of it came away in her fingers, even when she scratched it with her nails. The rock stayed hard and firm. Another handful of sand dropped to the canyon floor, seeming to make no difference in the canyon's depth whatsoever. But Ceony knew that enough handfuls would fill it, eventually. After all, it took time to mend one's heart. Enough time could heal a heart as broken as this one. It was half-healed already. #Quote by Charlie N. Holmberg
Carolino Canyon quotes by Willa Cather
#25. From the ancient dwelling there came always a dignified, unobtrusive sadness; now stronger, now fainter, - like the aromatic smell which the dwarf cedars gave out in the sun, - but always present, a part of the air one breathed. At night, when Thea dreamed about the canyon, - or in the early morning when she hurried toward it, anticipating it, - her conception of it was of yellow rocks baking in sunlight, the swallows, the cedar smell, and that peculiar sadness - a voice out of the past, not very loud, that went on saying a few simple things to the solitude eternally. #Quote by Willa Cather
Carolino Canyon quotes by Donald C. Peattie
#26. The Grand Canyon is carven deep by the master hand; it is the gulf of silence, widened in the desert; it is all time inscribing the naked rock; it is the book of earth. #Quote by Donald C. Peattie
Carolino Canyon quotes by Kevin Bleyer
#27. Am I the only one who can't seem to reconcile the grand canyon of cognitive dissonance I feel when people with much more important jobs than I have manage to score much lengthier times off? #Quote by Kevin Bleyer
Carolino Canyon quotes by Richard Louv
#28. There is a canyon within a reasonable distance of nearly every school in the city, [Elaine Brooks] pointed out. What an exciting prospect, she said - a network of natural libraries for teaching children about the region's rare and fragile ecosystems - and about themselves. #Quote by Richard Louv
Carolino Canyon quotes by Cesar Millan
#29. My business life takes a big chunk of time, but I still put exercise in my schedule. I'm up at 5 A.M. and get up and stretch and go for a run in Runyon Canyon with all five of my dogs. #Quote by Cesar Millan
Carolino Canyon quotes by Ally Condie
#30. It's as though she holds to the walls of a canyon. If I move wrong she will look over her shoulder, let go, and take her chances with the fall. #Quote by Ally Condie
Carolino Canyon quotes by Shannon Hale
#31. Rock Canyon OB-GYN: We're GYNO-MITE! #Quote by Shannon Hale
Carolino Canyon quotes by Edward Abbey
#32. No man-made structure in all of American history has been hated so much, by so many, for so long, with such good reason, as that Glen Canyon Dam at Page, Arizona, Shithead Capital of Coconino County. #Quote by Edward Abbey
