Rivers quotes by Douglas Adams
#1. Is it anything to do with this?" she said. The thing she took out of her bag was battered and travel-worn as if it had been hurled into prehistoric rivers, baked under the sun that shines so redly on the deserts of Kakrafoon, half buried in the marbled sands that fringe the heady vapored oceans of Santraginus V, frozen on the glaciers of the moon of Jaglan Beta, sat on, kicked around spaceships, scuffed and generally abused, and since its makers had thought that these were exactly the sorts of things that might happen to it, they had thoughtfully encased it in a sturdy plastic cover and written on it, in large friendly letters, the words "Don't Panic. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Rivers quotes by Horace
#2. He who postpones the hour of living as he ought, is like the rustic who waits for the river to pass along (before he crosses); but it glides on and will glide forever.
[Lat., Vivendi recte qui prorogat horam
Rusticus expectat dum defluat amnis; at ille
Labitur et labetur in omne volubilis aevum.] #Quote by Horace
Rivers quotes by Francine Rivers
#3. ...I see sunrise as God's good morning, and sunset as God's good night. #Quote by Francine Rivers
Rivers quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#4. Let the river roll which way it will, cities will rise on its banks. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Rivers quotes by Alexis Karpouzos
#5. Every flower and insect, every bird, and all the creatures that live upon the land and swim within the rivers and seas, are part of the Tree of Life. You are connected to the whole of life. Whatever happens to the myriad forms of life in the world around you, has a direct affect on you'. #Quote by Alexis Karpouzos
Rivers quotes by Fredrika Bremer
#6. What a glorious new Scandinavia might not Minnesota become! Here the Swede would find again his clear, romantic lakes, the plains of Scane rich in corn, and the valleys of Norrland; here the Norwegian would find his rapid rivers ... The climate, the situation, the character of the scenery agrees with our people better than that of any other American States ... #Quote by Fredrika Bremer
Rivers quotes by Alan Paton
#7. Now God be thanked that the name of a hill is such music, that the name of a river can heal. #Quote by Alan Paton
Rivers quotes by Rajneesh
#8. The child is naturally meditative. He is a sort of samadhi; he's coming out of the womb of existence. His life river is yset absolutely fresh, just from the source. He knows the truth, but he does not know that he knows ... His knowledge is not yet aware. It is innocent. It is simply there, as a matter of fact. And he is not separate from his knowledge; he is his knowledge. He has not mind, he has simple being. #Quote by Rajneesh
Rivers quotes by Gavin Illiahd Medleigh
#9. Blood may be thicker than water, but rivers run deeper... #Quote by Gavin Illiahd Medleigh
Rivers quotes by Carl Clinton Van Doren
#10. Guy Rivers, a conventional piece as regards the love affair which makes a part of the plot, is a tale of deadly strife between the laws of Georgia and a fiendish bandit. #Quote by Carl Clinton Van Doren
Rivers quotes by Lord Dunsany
#11. And Jabim is the Lord of broken things, who sitteth behind the house to lament the things that are cast away. And there he sitteth lamenting the broken things until the worlds be ended, or until someone cometh to mend the broken things. Or sometimes he sitteth by the river's edge to lament the forgotten things that drift upon it.
A kindly god is Jabim, whose heart is sore if anything be lost. #Quote by Lord Dunsany
Rivers quotes by Doc Rivers
#12. You're always growing as a coach, and I am not done growing, and hopefully I'm not done winning. #Quote by Doc Rivers
Rivers quotes by Rinker Buck
#13. The pioneers and their new Indian partners amply displayed the American penchant for technological prowess, developing shore-to-shore windlasses and flatboat ferries to cross the rivers, innovations as vital to the country's progress as the steam engine and the telegraph. America's default toward massive waste and environmental havoc was also, and hilariously, perfected along the trail. Scammed by the merchants of Independence and St. Joe into overloading their wagons, the pioneers jettisoned thousands of tons of excess gear, food, and even pianos along the ruts, turning vast riverfront regions of the West into America's first and largest Superfund sites. On issue after issue - disease, religious strife, the fierce competition for water - the trail served as an incubator for conflicts that would continue to reverberate through American culture until our own day. #Quote by Rinker Buck
Rivers quotes by Ali Harper
#14. I was just saying goodnight." Logan quipped and pecked Sienna on the cheek before slipping something in to her hand. She looked down to see it was a sleek new cellphone. He turned to leave but Mrs. Rivers interrupted him.
"Your fly is undone." She told him grimly giving him her the full extent of her medusa glare. If looks could kill, Mrs. Rivers had homicide down to a science. When had that happened? Sienna thought. Probably sometime when they were too busy pressing themselves against each other. Sienna was mortified. Logan however looked mildly amused. He zipped up his trousers and quietly thanked her.

"Oh and Logan, you left your souvenir behind." She added now giving Sienna the full extent of the medusa glare. Logan and Sienna both frowned momentarily before realizing what she meant. He snatched the condom and put it back in his pocket and quickly left the house leaving Sienna to battle with the Gorgon. #Quote by Ali Harper
Rivers quotes by Paul Hawken
#15. While there may be no "right" way to value a forest or a river, there is a wrong way, which is to give it no value at all. How do we decide the value of a 700-year-old tree? We need only to ask how much it would cost to make a new one, or a new river, or even a new atmosphere. #Quote by Paul Hawken
Rivers quotes by Edward Abbey
#16. Night and day the river flows. If time is the mind of space, the River is the soul of the desert. Brave boatmen come, they go, they die, the voyage flows on forever. We are all canyoneers. We are all passengers on this little mossy ship, this delicate dory sailing round the sun that humans call the earth. Joy, shipmates, joy. #Quote by Edward Abbey
Rivers quotes by Robert E.Lee
#17. Life processes take place in an aqueous medium. All organisms are composed mostly of water, whether they dwell in the oceans, lakes, and rivers, or on the land. Because the physical and chemical properties of water are well suited to the requirements of life, it is no accident that life is a water-based phenomenon. #Quote by Robert E.Lee
Rivers quotes by Rivers Cuomo
#18. Miley Cyrus' 'Party in the USA' kills me with jealousy. The melodies are out-of-control beautiful. #Quote by Rivers Cuomo
Rivers quotes by Susanna Clarke
#19. I reached out my hand, England's rivers turned and flowed the other way...
I reached out my hand, my enemies's blood stopt in their veins...
I reached out my hand; thought and memory flew out of my enemies' heads like a flock of starlings;
My enemies crumpled like empty sacks.
I came to them out of mists and rain;
I came to them in dreams at midnight;
I came to them in a flock of ravens that filled a northern sky at dawn;
When they thought themselves safe I came to them in a cry that broke the silence of a winter wood...

The rain made a door for me and I went through it;
The stones made a throne for me and I sat upon it;
Three kingdoms were given to me to be mine forever;
England was given to me to be mine forever.
The nameless slave wore a silver crown;
The nameless slave was a king in a strange country...

The weapons that my enemies raised against me are venerated in Hell as holy relics;
Plans that my enemies made against me are preserved as holy texts;
Blood that I shed upon ancient battlefields is scraped from the stained earth by Hell's sacristans and placed in a vessel of silver and ivory.
I gave magic to England, a valuable inheritance
But Englishmen have despised my gift
Magic shall be written upon the sky by the rain but they shall not be able to read it;
Magic shall be written on the faces of the stony hills but their minds shall not be able to contain it; #Quote by Susanna Clarke
Rivers quotes by Jean Rhys
#20. I hated the mountains and the hills, the rivers and the rain. I hated the sunsets of whatever colour, I hated its beauty and its magic and the secret I would never know. I hated its indifference and the cruelty which was part of its loveliness. Above all I hated her. For she belonged to the magic and the loveliness. She had left me thirsty and all my life would be thirst and longing for what I had lost before I found it. #Quote by Jean Rhys
Rivers quotes by Francine Rivers
#21. Have you ever been to the beach and wanted to feed the seagulls? The problem is you tear off a little crust from your sandwich and toss it to one, and ten more show up. Toss a little more and a flock descends. You start to wonder: if I run out of bread, will I become the meal?
Turkeys are different. They startle easily and run for the barn. In the wild, they run for the hills. Of course, they're very tasty. Benjamin Franklin thought them majestic enough to be an emblem for our country. I'm sorry, but Thanksgiving would be downright depressing. There's our national symbol lying stuffed and roasted and ready to carve up for hungry guests.
And then we have the eagles. Our forefathers were trained in the Bible. […]They would have known Isaiah 40:31. "Those who wait upon the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary." They were making war on the greatest power in the world of the time; the world was watching them. What could this band of commoners do?
What troubles me about our country today is how many seagulls there are, scrambling for more. Remember the movie "Finding Nemo"? "Mine, mine, mine!" And we sure have a lot of gutless turkeys running for the barn whenever hard decisions have to be made; like how to keep our country solvent so our children won't be in soup lines…
Where are the eagles? That's what I want to know. Please, God, we need us some eagles! #Quote by Francine Rivers
Rivers quotes by Paulo Coelho
#22. I am going to sit here in the river. If you go home to sleep, I will sleep in front of your house. And if you go away, I will follow you
until you tell me to go away. Then I'll leave. But I have to love you for the rest of my life.. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Rivers quotes by Ellen Kaplan
#23. A Puritan twist in our nature makes us think that anything good for us must be twice as good if it's hard to swallow. Learning Greek and Latin used to play the role of character builder, since they were considered to be as exhausting and unrewarding as digging a trench in the morning and filling it up in the afternoon. It was what made a man, or a woman -- or more likely a robot -- of you. Now math serves that purpose in many schools: your task is to try to follow rules that make sense, perhaps, to some higher beings; and in the end to accept your failure with humbled pride. As you limp off with your aching mind and bruised soul, you know that nothing in later life will ever be as difficult.

What a perverse fate for one of our kind's greatest triumphs! Think how absurd it would be were music treated this way (for math and music are both excursions into sensuous structure): suffer through playing your scales, and when you're an adult you'll never have to listen to music again. And this is mathematics we're talking about, the language in which, Galileo said, the Book of the World is written. This is mathematics, which reaches down into our deepest intuitions and outward toward the nature of the universe -- mathematics, which explains the atoms as well as the stars in their courses, and lets us see into the ways that rivers and arteries branch. For mathematics itself is the study of connections: how things ideally must and, in fact, do sort together -- beyond, around, #Quote by Ellen Kaplan
Rivers quotes by Willie Nelson
#24. I'm drowning in whiskey river. #Quote by Willie Nelson
Rivers quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#25. Great fish do not drown in small rivers. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Rivers quotes by Francine Rivers
#26. But strength alone, though of the Muses born, Is like a fallen angel: trees uptorn, Darkness, and worms, and shrouds, and sepulchers Delight it; for it feeds upon the burrs And thorns of life; forgetting the great end Of poesy, that it should be a friend To soothe the cares, and lift the thoughts of man. KEATS CALIFORNIA, 1850 #Quote by Francine Rivers
Rivers quotes by Harry Belafonte
#27. In the gun game, we are the most hunted. The river of blood that washes the streets of our nation flows mostly from the bodies of our black children, #Quote by Harry Belafonte
Rivers quotes by Francine Rivers
#28. God would light the way. Faith would keep them on the right path. #Quote by Francine Rivers
Rivers quotes by Rawi Hage
#29. What do the stars believe in, Zainab? Where do the dead horses go, what do the birds worship, and what do the rivers live for? #Quote by Rawi Hage
Rivers quotes by Elizabeth Lesser
#30. Every day we're given a choice: We can relax and float in the direction that the water flows, or we can swim hard against it. If we go with the river, the energy of a thousand mountain streams will be with us ... if we resist the river, we will feel rankled and tired as we tread water, stuck in the same place. #Quote by Elizabeth Lesser
Rivers quotes by Siegfried Sassoon
#31. One evening I asked whether he [Rivers] thought I was suffering from shell-shock.
'Certainly not,' he replied.
'What have I got then?'
'Well, you appear to be suffering from an anti-war complex. #Quote by Siegfried Sassoon
Rivers quotes by Terry Pratchett
#32. YOU WILL NOT TELL THE RIVERS NOT TO FLOW. YOU WILL NOT TELL THE SUN NOT TO SHINE. YOU WILL NOT TELL ME WHAT I SHOULD AND SHOULD NOT DO. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Rivers quotes by Joan Rivers
#33. Show business can be an addiction ... An audience would laugh at me one night, and I would chase that high for another three months. #Quote by Joan Rivers
Rivers quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#34. To know there is a choice is to have to make the choice: change or stay: river or rock. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Rivers quotes by John D. Voelker
#35. Fly-fishing is a magic way to recapture the rapture of solitude without the pangs of loneliness. #Quote by John D. Voelker
Rivers quotes by Joan Rivers
#36. I think anyone who's perfectly happy isn't particularly funny. #Quote by Joan Rivers
Rivers quotes by Rivers Solomon
#37. Aster didn't mean it. As much as it frustrated her, she understood the logic of Giselle's psychosis. Everything dies, so exert control by burning it away yourself. Everything will be born again anyway. There's no such thing as creation, merely a shuffling of parts. All birth is rebirth in disguise. (63) #Quote by Rivers Solomon
Rivers quotes by Rosita Forbes
#38. The perfect journey is never finished, the goal is always just across the next river, round the shoulder of the next mountain. There is always one more track to follow, one more mirage to explore. #Quote by Rosita Forbes
Rivers quotes by Justin Trudeau
#39. I was a snowboard instructor, I was a bouncer in a nightclub, I was a whitewater river guide for many years. I worked as a teacher. I make no apologies for a very varied set of life experiences. #Quote by Justin Trudeau
Rivers quotes by Lyndon B. Johnson
#40. An unspoiled river is a very rare thing in this Nation today. Their flow and vitality have been harnessed by dams and too often they have been turned into open sewers by communities and by industries. It makes us all very fearful that all rivers will go this way unless somebody acts now to try to balance our river development. #Quote by Lyndon B. Johnson
Rivers quotes by Joan Rivers
#41. Russell Brand has announced that he plans to write a series of children's books. First up: 'Horton Hears a Heroin Dealer.' #Quote by Joan Rivers
Rivers quotes by Guru Nanak
#42. Build the raft of meditation and self-discipline, to carry you across the river. There will be no ocean, and no rising tides to stop you; this is how comfortable your path shall be ... #Quote by Guru Nanak
Rivers quotes by Mark Siegel
#43. Men write Bibles. God doesn't. God writes in stars and worlds and seasons and Hudson Rivers and beautiful women. Creation is the good book. #Quote by Mark Siegel
Rivers quotes by Joan Rivers
#44. Just remember: Surviving is the best revenge, no matter what the disaster has been. #Quote by Joan Rivers
Rivers quotes by Dee Brown
#45. Treat all men alike ... give them all the same law. Give them all an even chance to live and grow. You might as well expect the rivers to run backward as that any man who is born a free man should be contented when penned up and denied liberty to go where he pleases. We only ask an even chance to live as other men live. We ask to be recognized as men. Let me be a free man ... free to travel ... free to stop ... free to work ... free to choose my own teachers ... free to follow the religion of my Fathers ... free to think and talk and act for myself. #Quote by Dee Brown
Rivers quotes by Raymond Sokolov
#46. Only the river is free, always changing but always the same ... #Quote by Raymond Sokolov
Rivers quotes by Jerome K. Jerome
#47. Yet there is no gainsaying but that it must have been somewhat sweeter in that dewy morning of creation, when it was young and fresh, when the feet of the tramping millions had not trodden its grass to dust, nor the din of the myriad cities chased the silence forever away. Life must have been noble and solemn to those free-footed, loose-robed fathers of the human race, walking hand in hand with God under the great sky. They lived in sunkissed tents amid the lowing herds. They took their simple wants from the loving hand of Nature. They toiled and talked and thought; and the great earth rolled around in stillness, not yet laden with trouble and wrong. Those days are past now. The quiet childhood of Humanity, spent in the far-off forest glades and by the murmuring rivers, is gone forever; and human life is deepening down to manhood amid tumult, doubt, and hope. Its age of restful peace is past. It has its work to finish and must hasten on. What that work may be - what this world's share is in the great design - we know not, though our unconscious hands are helping to accomplish it. Like the tiny coral insect working deep under the dark waters, we strive and struggle each for our own little ends, nor dream of the vast fabric we are building up for God. #Quote by Jerome K. Jerome
Rivers quotes by Woody Hayes
#48. Statistics always remind me of fellow who drowned in a river where the average depth was only three feet. #Quote by Woody Hayes
Rivers quotes by William H. Whyte
#49. The street is the river of life of the city, the place where we come together, the pathway to the center. #Quote by William H. Whyte
Rivers quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#50. Go, little book, and wish to all
Flowers in the garden, meat in the hall,
A bin of wine, a spice of wit,
A house with lawns enclosing it,
A living river by the door,
A nightingale in the sycamore! #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Rivers quotes by C.G. Jung
#51. Nothing could persuade me that "in the image of God" applied only to man. In fact it seemed to me that the high mountains, the rivers, lakes, trees, flowers and animals far better exemplified the essence of God than men with their ridiculous clothes, their meanness, vanity, mendacity, and abhorrent egotism - #Quote by C.G. Jung
Rivers quotes by Wendell Berry
#52. The river and the garden have been the foundations of my economy here. Of the two I have liked the river best. It is wonderful to have the duty of being on the river the first and last thing every day. I have loved it even in the rain. Sometimes I have loved it most in the rain. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Rivers quotes by Joan Rivers
#53. Somehow, some way, every person in the arts has to find an accommodation with disappointment and embarrassment. They are the pollen in the air we breathe. If you must go into the arts, go into them for yourself alone. On some basic level you must enjoy the act of doing it ... Otherwise, you are going to end up frustrated and unhappy. Recognition in the arts is luck and gravy. #Quote by Joan Rivers
Rivers quotes by J.A. Huss
#54. I cry long rivers of regret, but with every new breath, I am secretly thankful for my good fortune. #Quote by J.A. Huss
Rivers quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#55. THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION OPENED up new ways to convert energy and to produce goods, largely liberating humankind from its dependence on the surrounding ecosystem. Humans cut down forests, drained swamps, dammed rivers, flooded plains, laid down hundreds of thousands of miles of railroad tracks, and built skyscraping metropolises. As the world was moulded to fit the needs of Homo sapiens, habitats were destroyed and species went extinct. Our once green and blue planet is becoming a concrete and plastic shopping centre. #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
Rivers quotes by Olivia Rivers
#56. Her gaze flicks back to my lips, and for a moment, I think she's waiting for me to respond. But then she throws herself into my arms and kisses me.
Finally. That's the only word running through my head as I kiss her back. Maybe not the most romantic sentiment, but I can't help it. All those times we've kissed, she's felt so hesitant. Now she's just as desperate as I am, and her lips are sweet and incredible. #Quote by Olivia Rivers
Rivers quotes by Fennel Hudson
#57. The world of water has a way of perpetuating myths and shrouding lakes in mystery. #Quote by Fennel Hudson
Rivers quotes by Joan Rivers
#58. My sex life has gone from bad to pathetic. My G spot stands for godforsaken. #Quote by Joan Rivers
Rivers quotes by Ray Bradbury
#59. When rivers flooded, when fire fell from the sky, what a fine place the library was, the many rooms, the books. With luck, no one found you. How could they!
when you were off to Tanganyika in '98, Cairo in 1812, Florence in 1492!? #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Rivers quotes by John Steinbeck
#60. A few miles south of Soledad, the Salinas River drops in close to the hillside bank and runs deep and green. The water is warm too, for it has slipped twinkling over the yellow sands in the sunlight before reaching the narrow pool. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Rivers quotes by Charles Bukowski
#61. When a writer is swayed with his fame and his fortune, you can float him down the river with the turds. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Rivers quotes by Don Herold
#62. If I had my life to live over, I would try to make more mistakes. I would relax. I would be sillier than I have been this trip. I know of very few things that I would take seriously. I would be less hygienic. I would go more places. I would climb more mountains and swim more rivers. I would eat more ice cream and less spinach. I would have more actual troubles and fewer imaginary troubles. #Quote by Don Herold
Rivers quotes by Horace Binney Wallace
#63. Oh, sweet thy current by town and by tower, The green sunny vale and the dark linden bower; Thy waves as they dimple smile back on the plain, And Rhine, ancient river, thou'rt German again! #Quote by Horace Binney Wallace
Rivers quotes by Francine Rivers
#64. I gave up what I can't keep for something I can never lose. #Quote by Francine Rivers
Rivers quotes by Philip Rivers
#65. I don't like to sit still. #Quote by Philip Rivers
Rivers quotes by Prince William
#66. The fish only knows that it lives in the water, after it is already on the river bank. Without our awareness of another world out there, it would never occur to us to change. #Quote by Prince William
Rivers quotes by James Schuyler
#67. A nothing day full of wild beauty ... Little fish stream by, a river in water. #Quote by James Schuyler
Rivers quotes by Charles Baudelaire
#68. I love to watch the fine mist of the night come on,
The windows and the stars illumined, one by one,
The rivers of dark smoke pour upward lazily,
And the moon rise and turn them silver. I shall see
The springs, the summers, and the autumns slowly pass;
And when old Winter puts his blank face to the glass,
I shall close all my shutters, pull the curtains tight,
And build me stately palaces by candlelight. #Quote by Charles Baudelaire
Rivers quotes by Joan Rivers
#69. It's been so long since I've had sex I've forgotten who ties up whom. #Quote by Joan Rivers
Rivers quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#70. Humans are the only animals that have children on purpose with the exception of guppies, who like to eat theirs. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Rivers quotes by Elizabeth A. Johnson
#71. Spiritually, trees play a unique role in the Jewish and Christian scriptures, from the Garden of Eden to the Cross of Christ. Biologically, in great forest communities, they help sustain life on our planet, giving off oxygen, anchoring soil, keeping stream and rivers clear, and providing habitation for thousands of species. How can religious persons not care about the widespread destruction of these creatures of God? We need to love them as our very selves, as neighbors in earth's community of life. #Quote by Elizabeth A. Johnson
Rivers quotes by Francine Rivers
#72. One person standing on the Rock can throw a lifeline to others drowning in the sea. He #Quote by Francine Rivers
Rivers quotes by Ramon Ravenswood
#73. Wolf Speaks:
I wander mountains high
and river pathways
I seek cover in deep forests
from hunters' cruel knives
Yet my cousins warm your
hearts with love and loyalty
Love me also even though
you do not command my freedom path #Quote by Ramon Ravenswood
Rivers quotes by Paul Hamilton Hayne
#74. And Potomac flowed calmly, scarce heaving her breast, With her low-lying billows all bright in the west, For a charm as from God lulled the waters to rest Of the fair rolling river. #Quote by Paul Hamilton Hayne
Rivers quotes by Harry S. Truman
#75. It will be just as easy for nations to get along in a republic of the world as it is for you to get along in the republic of the United States. Now when Kansas and Colorado have a quarrel over the water in the Arkansas river they don't call out the national guard in each state and go to war over it. They bring suit in the Supreme Court of the United States and abide by the decision. There isn't a reason in the world why we can't do that internationally. #Quote by Harry S. Truman
Rivers quotes by Rupert Brooke
#76. The War Sonnets: V. The Soldier
If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
A body of England's, breathing English air,
Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.
And think, this heart, all evil shed away,
A pulse in the eternal mind, no less
Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given;
Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day;
And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness,
In hearts at peace, under an English heaven. #Quote by Rupert Brooke
Rivers quotes by Joan Rivers
#77. When you first get married, they open the car door for you. Eighteen years now ... once he opened the car door for me in the last four years - we were on the freeway at the time. #Quote by Joan Rivers
Rivers quotes by Joan Rivers
#78. I'm always shocked when I get an invitation. People are always shocked when they see me at a party. #Quote by Joan Rivers
Rivers quotes by Aldo Leopold
#79. I know a painting so evanescent that it is seldom viewed at all except by some wandering deer. It is a river who wields the brush and it is the same river who before I can bring my friends to view his work erases it forever from human view. After that it exists only in my mind's eye. #Quote by Aldo Leopold
Rivers quotes by Olivia Laing
#80. When it hurts,' wrote the Polish poet Czeslaw Milosz, 'we return to the banks of certain rivers, #Quote by Olivia Laing
Rivers quotes by Joan Rivers
#81. I have no line. If I think it's funny, it's funny. #Quote by Joan Rivers
Rivers quotes by Koichi Tohei
#82. Do not criticize any other martial arts or speak ill of others, as it will surely come back to you. The mountain does not laugh at the river because it is lowly, nor does the river speak ill of the mountain because it can not move. #Quote by Koichi Tohei
Rivers quotes by Joan Rivers
#83. I'm racist? How can that even be possible? I was a friend of Michael Jackson's back when he was black. #Quote by Joan Rivers
Rivers quotes by Tom Sutcliffe
#84. Spending more time with my fly firmly attached to the branches of trees and almost none of it attached to the lips of a trout. #Quote by Tom Sutcliffe
Rivers quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#85. In rivers, the water that you touch is the last of what has passed and the first of that which comes; so with present time. #Quote by Leonardo Da Vinci
Rivers quotes by Guy Kawasaki
#86. You have to sit by the side of a river a very long time before a roast duck will fly into your mouth. #Quote by Guy Kawasaki
Rivers quotes by George Gordon Byron
#87. I came to realize clearly that the mind is no other than the Mountain and the Rivers and the great wide Earth, the Sun and the Moon and the Sky. #Quote by George Gordon Byron
Rivers quotes by Laozi
#88. The river and the sea can be kings of a hundred valleys, because they lie below them. #Quote by Laozi
Rivers quotes by Arundhati Roy
#89. From being a dream, dams have become a very cynical corrupt enterprise; a way of letting governments lay their hands on huge sums of money; a way of centralizing resources; a way of snatching rivers away from the poor and giving them to the rich. And so in a sense they've become monuments to corruption. #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Rivers quotes by Yasser Arafat
#90. I want to tell Carter and Begin that when the Arabs set off their volcano there will be only Arabs in this part of the world ... Our people will continue to fuel the torch of the revolution with rivers of blood until the whole of the occupied homeland is liberated, the whole of the homeland is liberated, not just a part of it. #Quote by Yasser Arafat
Rivers quotes by Nick Flynn
#91. Alcohol is the river we sit on the banks of, contemplating. Sometimes we watch ourselves float past, sometimes we watch ourselves sink. #Quote by Nick Flynn
Rivers quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#92. Is not disease the rule of existence? There is not a lily pad floating on the river but has been riddled by insects. Almost every shrub and tree has its gall, oftentimes esteemed its chief ornament and hardly to be distinguished from the fruit. If misery loves company, misery has company enough. Now, at midsummer, find me a perfect leaf or fruit. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Rivers quotes by Jordan Sonnenblick
#93. Steven, I look like a raccoon.
You do NOT look like a raccoon.
Actually, he looked like some deranged anteater, but I didn't figure that would be the thing to tell him.
Yes, I do. Oh, no. What if I stay this way forever?
You're not going to stay that way forever, Jeffy. People get black eyes all the time. If they never got better, the streets would be crowded with raccoon people. Soon the raccoon people would find each other and breed.
I was on a roll here.
The preschools would fill up with strange ring-eyed children. Soon the raccoons would be taking over our streets, stealing from our garbage cans, leaving eerie tails of Dinty Moore beef stew cams in their wakes. Gangs of them would haunt the malls, buying up all the black-and-gray-striped sportswear. THE RIVERS WOULD RISE! THE VALLEYS WOULD RUN WITH ...
Steven you're joking, right? #Quote by Jordan Sonnenblick
Rivers quotes by Norman Borlaug
#94. To this day, I enjoy nature, the luxury of undisturbed wilderness, forests, mountains, lakes, rivers and deserts and their wildlife. But I also know that the greatest danger to their perpetuity is the pressure of human population. #Quote by Norman Borlaug
Rivers quotes by Gina Ogden
#95. FOR A WOMAN WHO FEARS SHE IS TOO DAMAGED TO LOVE AGAIN

A Prayer adapted from the Heart and Soul of Sex by Gina Ogden, PhD.

Holy Spirits of Fire befriend and warm me.
Earth and Water wrap me in bounty.
Spirits of Air guide me to walk the paths of my heart.
Sun smile on me. Stones accept me. Stars remind me.
Ocean storms burnish my terrors to translucent pearls.
Creatures of hills and hollows, beings beneath the ground watch over me, comfort and nourish me.
Snakes and rivers, ancient dragons, dance sinuously with me.
Swirling spirit of volcano invest me with power.
Eagle and sparrow give me wings and sight.
Snails of Buddha, saints of God, Great Spirit, Yahweh, Magus, Shiva, Isis, Astarte of the flowing heart, Goddess of Grain, Angel of Sweetness, Higher Power, protect me, fearful, angry, and armored; as I am the giver, healer, striver, survivor and lover.
Cherish me - waif and victim, elf and Amazon.
See me a holy woman now. Touch me.
Brush me with the breath of love.
Ganesh, sacred elephant who cries human tears and oversees new ventures, help me begin again. #Quote by Gina Ogden
Rivers quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#96. How much do you love me?' and "Who's in charge?" ... these two questions of LOVE and CONTROL undo us ALL, trip us up and cause war, grief, and suffering.
People follow different paths, straight or crooked, according to their temperament, depending on which they consider best, or most appropriate
and all reach You, just as rivers enter the ocean. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Rivers quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#97. The mind must empty itself of all the past to become highly sensitive; and it cannot be sensitive if there is the burden of the past. It is only the mind that has understood all this that can put the question. And when it puts the question it has no answer, because there is no answer. The mind has become highly sensitive and therefore supremely intelligent and intelligence has no answer. It is in itself the answer. The observer has no place because intelligence is supreme.

Then the mind is no longer seeking, no longer wanting higher experiences and therefore it is not capable of control. It does not control, because it is intelligent. It is operating, it is working. Therefore, in the very act of intelligence, the dual state disappears. All this is meditation. It is like a cloud that begins on a hilltop with a few little clouds, and, as it moves, it covers the whole sky, the valley, the mountains, the rivers, the human beings, the earth; it covers everything. That is meditation because meditation is the concern of all the living, not just one part of it. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Rivers quotes by Robert Loveman
#98. It is not raining to me,
It's raining daffodils;
In every dimpled drop I see
Wild flowers on distant hills. #Quote by Robert Loveman
Rivers quotes by Mikhail Lermontov
#99. Passions are merely ideas in their initial stage. They are the property of youth, and anyone who expects to feel their thrill throughout his life is a fool. Tranquil rivers often begin as roaring waterfalls, but no river leaps and foams all the way to the sea. Tranquility, however, is often a sign of great, if hidden, power. Intensity and depth of feeling and thought preclude wild outbursts of passion; in sorrow and joy the soul takes careful stock of every situation, and sees that so it must be. #Quote by Mikhail Lermontov
Rivers quotes by Adrienne Rich
#100. How have I used rivers, how have I used wars
to escape writing of the worst thing of all
not the crimes of other, not even our own death,
but the failure to want our freedom passionately enough
so that blighted elms, sick rivers, massacres would seem
mere emblems of that desecration of ourselves? #Quote by Adrienne Rich
Rivers quotes by Rory Stewart
#101. When my father was posted to Malaysia, we'd take bacon-and-egg sandwiches in our backpacks and go hiking in the jungle or make bamboo rafts to sail down rivers. #Quote by Rory Stewart
Rivers quotes by Michael Farris Smith
#102. In the next hour, as he lay dying, he thought only of that moment of serenity, kneeling next to the church where he had been a boy before he grew into a man and realized the clarity of strength, his knees damp in the wet ground and in his palm the blue and red and purple glass.

As he lay dying, his flesh ripped like fabric, his blood flowing freely like the rain that came so often, he thought only of those beautiful shards of glass and the weight that they carried, and he found it difficult to comprehend that while he held those small holy things, how something so big and so powerful and so violent could have been so silent as it crept up behind him. #Quote by Michael Farris Smith
Rivers quotes by Judy Gold
#103. Joan Rivers was my hero. #Quote by Judy Gold
Rivers quotes by Greg Brown
#104. In a mucked up lovely river, I cast my little fly. I look at that river and smell it And it makes me want to cry. Oh to clean our dirty planet, Now there's a noble wish, And I'm puttin' my shoulder to the wheel 'Cause I wanna catch some fish. #Quote by Greg Brown
Rivers quotes by Isaac Walton
#105. You cannot lose what you never had. #Quote by Isaac Walton
Rivers quotes by Fernando Pessoa
#106. There is a time when it is necessary to abandon the used clothes, which already have the shape of our body and to forget our paths, which takes us always to the same places. This is the time to cross the river: and if we don't dare to do it, we will have stayed, forever beneath ourselves #Quote by Fernando Pessoa
Rivers quotes by Francois Laurent D'Arlandes
#107. "If you look at the river in that fashion you will be likely to bathe in it soon," cried Rozier. "Some fire, my dear friend, some fire!" #Quote by Francois Laurent D'Arlandes
Rivers quotes by Olivia Rivers
#108. Close your eyes
When clarity's gone and logic is done and love flees out the doorway,
When kisses hurt and your heart is cursed and so carelessly cast away,
When life's tumbling down, down, down,
And nothing's there when you look up,
Except the innocence you let life corrupt.
Just close your eyes,
Feel my hand in yours and know you're alive,
Just close your eyes,
Feel my lips on yours and know you'll survive,
Oh, close your eyes,
And in the darkness of the hour,
Know that I'll be here forever,
Forever yours,
I'll never go. #Quote by Olivia Rivers
Rivers quotes by J M G Le Clezio
#109. From his beach bag the man took an old penknife with a red handle and began to etch the signs of the letters onto nice flat pebbles. At the same time, he spoke to Mondo about everything there was in the letters, about everything you could see in them when you looked and when you listened. He spoke about A, which is like a big fly with its wings pulled back; about B, which is funny, with its two tummies; or C and D, which are like the moon, a crescent moon or a half-full moon; and then there was O, which was the full moon in the black sky. H is high, a ladder to climb up trees or to reach the roofs of houses; E and F look like a rake and a shovel; and G is like a fat man sitting in an armchair. I dances on tiptoes, with a little head popping up each time it bounces, whereas J likes to swing. K is broken like an old man, R takes big strides like a soldier, and Y stands tall, its arms up in the air, and it shouts: help! L is a tree on the river's edge, M is a mountain, N is for names, and people waving their hands, P is asleep on one paw, and Q is sitting on its tail; S is always a snake, Z is always a bolt of lightning, T is beautiful, like the mast on a ship, U is like a vase, V and W are birds, birds in flight; and X is a cross to help you remember. #Quote by J M G Le Clezio
Rivers quotes by Francine Rivers
#110. I've done everything for the wrong reasons. All the good works people credit to me are nothing because I did them expecting God to repay me. I thought if I worked hard enough, God would have to give me what I wanted. The truth is I've never served the Lord at all. I was always serving myself. #Quote by Francine Rivers
Rivers quotes by Amy Tan
#111. What is true about a person? Would I change in the same way the river changes color but still be the same person? ... And then I realized it was the first time I could see the power of the wind. I couldn't see the wind itself, but I could see it carried water that filled the rivers and shaped the countryside. #Quote by Amy Tan
Rivers quotes by Rivers Solomon
#112. One can only go for so long without asking 'who am I?', 'where do I come from?', 'what does all this mean?', 'what is being?', 'what came before me and what might come after?'. Without answers there is only a hole. A hole where a history should be that takes the shape of an endless longing. We are cavities. #Quote by Rivers Solomon
Rivers quotes by Francine Rivers
#113. Mara, that's the life I want to give you. That's what I'm offering you. I want to fill you life with color and warmth. I want to fill it with light. Give me a chance #Quote by Francine Rivers
Rivers quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#114. He liked fishing and seemed to take pride in being able to like such a stupid occupation. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Rivers quotes by Nina George
#115. All the love, all the dead, all the people we've known. They are the rivers that feed our sea of souls. If we refuse to remember them, that sea will dry up too. #Quote by Nina George
Rivers quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#116. Mom said, "His spirit is there," and that made me really angry. I told her, "Dad didn't have a spirit! He had cells!" "His memory is there." "His memory is here," I said, pointing at my head. "Dad had a spirit," she said, like she was rewinding a bit in our conversation. I told her, "He had cells, and now they're on rooftops, and in the river, and in the lungs of millions of people around New York, who breathe him every time they speak! #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Rivers quotes by Elizabeth Lesser
#117. The soul is the river of energy that animates who we are. #Quote by Elizabeth Lesser
Rivers quotes by John Fire Lame Deer
#118. Listen to the air.
You can hear it, feel it,
smell it, taste it.
Woniya wakan, the holy air,
which renews all by its breath.
Woniya wakan, spirit, life, breath, renewal,
it means all that.
We sit together, don't touch,
but something is there,
we feel it between us
as a presence.
A good way to start thinking
about nature
is to talk to it,
talk to the rivers, to the lakes,
to the winds,
as to our relatives. #Quote by John Fire Lame Deer
Rivers quotes by Anne Rivers Siddons
#119. At the dune line, just before the whispering stands of sea oats and dune grass began, the sand was as damp and cold as the skin of a snake under my feet. #Quote by Anne Rivers Siddons
Rivers quotes by Francine Rivers
#120. These conquerors of the world are slaves to their passions, and someday their passions will bring them down. #Quote by Francine Rivers
Rivers quotes by Philip Rivers
#121. I'm excited about the opportunity to get out there and show not only what I can do but, more importantly, what this team can do with me in there. #Quote by Philip Rivers
Rivers quotes by Robert Bly
#122. What does it mean when a man falls in love with a radiant face across the room? It may mean that he has some soul work to do. His soul is the issue. Instead of pursuing the woman and trying to get her alone, away from her husband, he needs to go alone himself, perhaps to a mountain cabin, for three months, write poetry, canoe down a river, and dream. That would save some women a lot of trouble. #Quote by Robert Bly
Rivers quotes by Florence Caplow
#123. understand that it is the asking that matters, not the answer. Because every real asking, every real meeting comes from the place where the Buddha glimmers in the depths. In the asking is the answerer; in the answer is the asker. And in the meeting of the two, there are mountains, rivers, and the whole earth. #Quote by Florence Caplow
Rivers quotes by Joan Rivers
#124. Tyra's always standing up for herself and her "race" over perceived slights. For example, she'll say, "You just pushed me because I'm black!" No, I pushed you because the train was coming right at you, you bulimic twit. #Quote by Joan Rivers
Rivers quotes by Wendell Berry
#125. It is a fact that the entire Kentucky River system, which the central part of the state complacently depends upon for its future water, is deteriorating rapidly because of strip mining, because of bad farming, because of industrial and agricultural pollutants, because of urban sewage. It is deteriorating, that is to say, because almost nobody cares, or cares to know, where water comes from, so long as it keeps coming. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Rivers quotes by Aldo Leopold
#126. Thus far we have considered the problem of conservation of land purely as an economic issue. A false front of exclusively economic determinism is so habitual to Americans in discussing public questions that one must speak in the language of compound interest to get a hearing. #Quote by Aldo Leopold
Rivers quotes by Brenda Ueland
#127. The true self is always in motion like music, a river of life, changing, moving, failing, suffering, learning, shining, #Quote by Brenda Ueland
Rivers quotes by Joan Rivers
#128. As a wedding gift, Ray J gave Kim Kardashian his profits from their sex tape. It's 'Something Old' as well as 'Something Blew.' #Quote by Joan Rivers
Rivers quotes by Robert Anthony
#129. Our consciousness, our ideas, our frame of reference and our belief system determine whether we go to the river of life with a teaspoon, a cup, a bucket or a barrel. #Quote by Robert Anthony
Rivers quotes by Baaba Maal
#130. Podor is a nice town. It's at the north of Senegal near the river. The town faces the other country that is Mauritania. It is a very cultural town, because at the beginning it was closest stop when you come from the Sahara and also when you come from the south to go to the north part of Africa. It was just at the middle, and so it's where a lot of cultures of West Africa come together. #Quote by Baaba Maal
Rivers quotes by Gautama Buddha
#131. My teaching is not a philosophy. It is the result of direct experience ...
My teaching is a means of practice, not something to hold onto or worship.
My teaching is like a raft used to cross the river.
Only a fool would carry the raft around after he had already reached the other shore of liberation. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Rivers quotes by Anne Rivers Siddons
#132. On a night of icy silver radiance, when the very sea and stars seemed on fire with light. #Quote by Anne Rivers Siddons
Rivers quotes by Joan Rivers
#133. The only way I can get a man to touch me at this age is plastic surgery. #Quote by Joan Rivers
Rivers quotes by Veronica White
#134. When the world has changed and the rivers run dry ad the forests grow brown will we realize that we don't run the world. We must understand that Nature is what helped us into this beautiful planet, so we must help her in return. #Quote by Veronica White
Rivers quotes by Olivia Rivers
#135. Am I better off living through death,
Or dying an invisible ghost?
Am I better off speaking in silence,
Or screaming so loud no one will hear?
I fake a smile,
But it's killed by you,
I fake a soul,
But that dies, too.
So I fake my life,
What else can I do?
Take me in, spit me out,
And I scream and scream and shout,
But you can't hear my pain,
My blood's nothing but a worthless stain.
I fake a smile,
But it's killed by you.
I fake a soul,
But that dies, too.
So I fake my life,
What else can I do?
And if one day I wake up gone,
Maybe people will see through,
But until then the lies will rule.
And sometimes I think
I'm better off dead,
But then I realize
I already am. #Quote by Olivia Rivers
Rivers quotes by Gloria Steinem
#136. Movements are like rivers. Dipping into them is never the same twice. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Rivers quotes by W. H. Auden
#137. Far from his illness The wolves ran on through the evergreen forests, The peasant river was untempted by the fashionable quays; By mourning tongues The death of the poet was kept from his poems. #Quote by W. H. Auden
Rivers quotes by Richard Branson
#138. It's so graceful to be blown by the wind, to go where the wind takes you. Just drifting over beautiful rivers in a balloon is perfect. #Quote by Richard Branson
Rivers quotes by Marina Tsvetaeva
#139. There are books so alive that you're always afraid that while you weren't reading, the book has gone and changed, has shifted like a river; while you went on living, it went on living too, and like a river moved on and moved away. No one has stepped twice into the same river. But did anyone ever step twice into the same book? #Quote by Marina Tsvetaeva
Rivers quotes by Joan Rivers
#140. I'm tired of dealing with crazies. When did it become my job to manage your mental illness? #Quote by Joan Rivers
Rivers quotes by Woody Allen
#141. Some drink deeply from the river of knowledge. Others only gargle. #Quote by Woody Allen
Rivers quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#142. A place where...where the sort of people who hurt us don't get to live. Where anyone, regardless of who they are and where they came from and what their rank is can dwell in peace. Where we can have a garden in the spring, and swim in the rivers in the summer. I've never had such a thing before. A home, I mean. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Rivers quotes by Orison Swett Marden
#143. Forests, lakes, and rivers, clouds and winds, stars and flowers, stupendous glaciers and crystal snowflakes - every form of animate or inanimate existence, leaves its impress upon the soul of man. #Quote by Orison Swett Marden
Rivers quotes by S.J. Kincaid
#144. Some might call us a monstrous pair, and they would be right. Tyrus and I were both scorpions in our way, dangerous creatures crossing the most treacherous of rivers together. Together we might sting - but we also would float. #Quote by S.J. Kincaid
Rivers quotes by Mahesh Thakkar
#145. Life is never like a full stop. Full stops are like frozen ice, like dark clouds, like rotten mud.
But here rivers are born out of frozen ice, lightening sparkles by the clash of dark clouds, the lotus rises from the mud.
Isn't this glory of our life?
This is the story to sing this glory of life. #Quote by Mahesh Thakkar
Rivers quotes by Megan Rivers
#146. That small exposure to a few measures of song threw my world of its axis. It punctured a tiny window that gave me a peek at feelings, emotions, and thoughts I never knew existed. Knowing there was more to my life I wasn't getting at this moment made me feel like a drug addict forced into rehab. #Quote by Megan Rivers
Rivers quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#147. Roll, roll, roll. He nudged it with his foot to keep it straight. It was surprisingly satisfying to see acres and acres of forest and mountains and rivers unrolling across his floorboards. If he were a god, he thought, this would be precisely how he'd create his new world. Unrolling it like carpet. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Rivers quotes by James A. Newman
#148. The alcohol danced down his throat like a contented snake on the way to a magic ball... The lights seemed suddenly brighter... He felt an immediate sense of danger... Electricity... Fear... Excitement... The glass left his lips he needed another. He needed ten, twenty, thirty more...
He needed rivers, seas, oceans...
He swore under his breath. Somewhere a woman laughed and a man shouted... He looked at the stage. Temptresses dancing... Strange Northern music.... Whores... laws... violence... #Quote by James A. Newman
Rivers quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#149. Give to me the life I love, Let the lave go by me, Give the jolly heaven above And the byway nigh me. Bed in the bush with the stars to see, Bread I dip in the river There's the life for a man like me, There's the life for ever. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Rivers quotes by Max Lucado
#150. God gets us through stuff. Through the Red Sea onto dry ground (Ex. 14:22), through the wilderness (Deut. 29:5), through the valley of the shadow of death (Ps. 23:4), and through the deep sea (Ps. 77:19). Through is a favorite word of God's: When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you. (Isa. 43:2)1 #Quote by Max Lucado
Rivers quotes by Billy Joel
#151. We all end in the ocean. We all start in the streams. We're all carried along, by the river of dreams. #Quote by Billy Joel
Rivers quotes by Charles Kuralt
#152. I started out thinking of America as highways and state lines. As I got to know it better, I began to think of it as rivers. #Quote by Charles Kuralt
Rivers quotes by Sarah Addison Allen
#153. Daughters of the South were to their mothers what tributaries were to the main rivers they flowed into: their source of immovable strength. #Quote by Sarah Addison Allen
Rivers quotes by Marie Helvin
#154. Surgery is not going to improve your skin - all it's going to do is make you look tighter, like Joan Rivers! #Quote by Marie Helvin
Rivers quotes by Rudyard Kipling
#155. TWENTY bridges from Tower to Kew -
Wanted to know what the River knew,
Twenty Bridges or twenty-two,
For they were young, and the Thames was old
And this is the tale that River told: #Quote by Rudyard Kipling
Rivers quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#156. Nor must Uncle Sam's Web-feet be forgotten. At all the watery margins they have been present. Not only on the deep sea, the broadbay, and the rapid river, but also up the narrow muddy bayou, and wherever the ground was a little damp, they have been, and made their tracks. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Rivers quotes by Enoch
#157. Like the Roman, I seem to see the river Tiber foaming with much blood, #Quote by Enoch
Rivers quotes by Jay Parini
#158. A proper respect for nature means that you can't pollute the air, poison the rivers and chop down the forests indiscriminately without suffering greatly. #Quote by Jay Parini
Rivers quotes by Dave Franklin
#159. Perthites were like the Swan River's jellyfish - small pink blobs adrift in a warm environment. #Quote by Dave Franklin
Rivers quotes by Amy Carmichael
#160. I think of the love of God as a great river, pouring through us even as the waters pour through our ravine at floodtime. Nothing can keep this love from pouring through us, except of course our own blocking of the river. Do you sometimes feel that you have got to the end of your love for someone who refuses and repulses you? Such a thought is folly, for one cannot come to the end of what one has not got. We have no store of love at all. We are not jugs, we are riverbeds. #Quote by Amy Carmichael
Rivers quotes by Enoch Powell
#161. If my ship sails from sight, it doesn't mean my journey ends, it simply means the river bends. #Quote by Enoch Powell
Rivers quotes by Helena Rutherfurd Ely
#162. The watering of a garden requires as much judgement as the seasoning of a soup. #Quote by Helena Rutherfurd Ely
Rivers quotes by Saint Augustine
#163. Men go forth to marvel at the height of mountains, and the huge waves of the sea, the broad flow of the rivers, the vastness of the ocean, the orbits of the stars, and yet they neglect to marvel at themselves. Variant: Men go abroad to admire the heights of mountains, the mighty billows of the sea, the broad tides of rivers, the compass of the ocean, and the circuits of the stars, and pass themselves by. #Quote by Saint Augustine
Rivers quotes by Garrison Keillor
#164. There's no mastery to be had. You love the attempt. You don't master a story any more than you master a river. You feel lucky to canoe down it. #Quote by Garrison Keillor
Rivers quotes by Saint Teresa Of Avila
#165. In a state of grace, the soul is like a well of limpid water, from which flow only streams of clearest crystal. Its works are pleasing both to God and man, rising from the River of Life, beside which it is rooted like a tree. #Quote by Saint Teresa Of Avila
Rivers quotes by M T Anderson
#166. I miss that time. The cities back then, just after the forests died, were full of wonders, and you'd stumble on them
these princes of the air on common rooftops
the rivers that burst through the city streets so they ran like canals
the rabbits in parking garages
the deer foaling, nestled in Dumpsters like a Nativity. #Quote by M T Anderson
Rivers quotes by Anne Rivers Siddons
#167. Her light brown eyes were the color of sherry, fringed with long, thick, gold-tipped lashes. #Quote by Anne Rivers Siddons
Rivers quotes by Charles Dickens
#168. The rippling of the river seemed to cause a correspondent stir in his uneasy reflections. He would have laid them asleep if he could, but they were in movement, like the stream, and all tending one way with a strong current. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Rivers quotes by Shozo Tanaka
#169. The care of rivers is not a question of rivers but of the human heart. #Quote by Shozo Tanaka
Rivers quotes by Rajneesh
#170. This is what I mean by becoming religious: no guilt, no ego, no trip of any kind ... just being herenow ... being with the trees and the birds and the rivers and the mountains and the stars. #Quote by Rajneesh
Rivers quotes by David Abram
#171. How monotonous our speaking becomes when we speak only to ourselves! And how insulting to the other beings – to foraging black bears and twisted old cypresses – that no longer sense us talking to them, but only about them, as though they were not present in our world…Small wonder that rivers and forests no longer compel our focus or our fierce devotion. For we walk about such entities only behind their backs, as though they were not participant in our lives. Yet if we no longer call out to the moon slipping between the clouds, or whisper to the spider setting the silken struts of her web, well, then the numerous powers of this world will no longer address us – and if they still try, we will not likely hear them. #Quote by David Abram
Rivers quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#172. You came into my life-not as one comes to visit (you know, "not taking one's hat off") but as one comes to a kingdom where all the rivers have been waiting for your reflection, all the roads, for your steps. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Rivers quotes by Mickey Rivers
#173. What was the name of that dog on 'Rin Tin Tin'? #Quote by Mickey Rivers
Rivers quotes by Steven Moffat
#174. The Doctor: Doctor Song, you've got that face on again.
River: What face?
The Doctor: The "He's hot when he's clever" face.
River: This is my normal face.
The Doctor: Yes it is.
River: Oh, shut up.
The Doctor: Not a chance. #Quote by Steven Moffat
Rivers quotes by Robert Altman
#175. I love fishing. You put that line in the water and you don't know what's on the other end. Your imagination is under there. #Quote by Robert Altman
Rivers quotes by Ali Smith
#176. And it was always the stories that needed the telling that gave us the rope we could cross any river with. They balanced us high above any crevasse. They made us be natural acrobats. They made us brave. They met us well. They changed us. It was in their nature to. #Quote by Ali Smith
Rivers quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#177. Lakes, carillonst,
Pools and bells,
Fifes and freshets,
Harps and wells;
Flutes and rivers,
Streams, bassoons,
Geysers, trumpets,
Chimes lagoons,
Hear the music,
Drink the water,
As we poor lambs
All go to slaughter.
I love you Eliot.
Good-bye. I cry.
Tears and violins.
Hearts and flowers,
Flowers and tears.
Rosewater, good-bye. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Rivers quotes by Cyprian
#178. "If any man thirst, let him come and drink from the rivers of living water" (cf. John 7:38). Where shall he who thirsts come? To heretics where the fountain and river of water is in no way life-giving? Or to the Church, which is One? #Quote by Cyprian
Rivers quotes by Tarif Naaz
#179. God has blessed the vale of Kashmir with grace and grandeur. It is a land of lush green meadows, crystal clear springs and lakes, the majestic rivers and streams, the snow white and roaring cataracts, sweet waters, high snow-covered peaks make it a perfect archetype of the promised land of God. #Quote by Tarif Naaz
Rivers quotes by John Milton
#180. Straight mine eye hath caught new pleasures Whilst the landscape round it measures, Russet lawns and fallows grey, Where the nibbling flocks do stray, Mountains on whose barren breast The labouring clouds do often rest; Meadows trim with daisies pied, Shallow brooks, and rivers wide. #Quote by John Milton
Rivers quotes by Philip Rivers
#181. I grew up on the game. #Quote by Philip Rivers
Rivers quotes by Pat Schneider
#182. What a pity. How the stars
and seas and rivers
in their fragile lace of fog
go on without us
morning after morning,
year after year.
And we disappear. #Quote by Pat Schneider
Rivers quotes by Rajneesh
#183. What do you think? Who are these people who have depicted heaven as a playboy Club - who are these people? Starved, poor, who have missed their life - they are projecting their desires in heaven. In heaven there are rivers of wine ... who are these people who are imagining rivers of wine? They must have missed here. And there are wish-fulfilling trees. You sit underneath them, desire, and the moment you desire, immediately it is fulfilled. #Quote by Rajneesh
Rivers quotes by Joan Rivers
#184. Show business is - you're there by somebody's fluke. And as long as somebody likes you, and the show is going well, you're fine. I'd do anything. There's so much I want to do. #Quote by Joan Rivers
Rivers quotes by Francine Rivers
#185. No, you won't. And I won't be enough for you, Amanda. I don't want to be the center of your life. I want to be part of it. I want to be your husband, not your god. People can't always be there for you, no matter how much they want to be. And that includes me. #Quote by Francine Rivers
Rivers quotes by Alice Walker
#186. HELPED are those who are content to be themselves; they will never lack mystery in their lives and the joys of self-discovery will be constant.
HELPED are those who love the entire cosmos rather than their own tiny country, city, or farm, for to them will be shown the unbroken web of life and the meaning of infinity.
HELPED are those who live in quietness, knowing neither brand name nor fad; they shall live every day as if in eternity, and each moment shall be as full as it is long.
HELPED are those who love others unsplit off from their faults; to them will be given clarity of vision.
HELPED are those who create anything at all, for they shall relive the thrill of their own conception, and realize an partnership in the creation of the Universe that keeps them responsible and cheerful.
HELPED are those who love the Earth, their mother, and who willingly suffer that she may not die; in their grief over her pain they will weep rivers of blood, and in their joy in her lively response to love, they will converse with the trees.
HELPED are those whose ever act is a prayer for harmony in the Universe, for they are the restorers of balance to our planet. To them will be given the insight that every good act done anywhere in the cosmos welcomes the life of an animal or a child.
HELPED are those who risk themselves for others' sakes; to them will be given increasing opportunities for ever greater risks. Theirs will be a vision of the word in which no #Quote by Alice Walker

#187. The journey over the bridge had unnerved me. The river water passed me by like an untouched drink. I suspected that even if my mother and brother had not been there I would have made no move to jump. #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Rivers quotes by Louis Bayard
#188. Here was the thing about traveling down an uncharted river: You could only say how long you'd been traveling; you could never say how long it would be. #Quote by Louis Bayard
Rivers quotes by Anton Chekhov
#189. Oh, I don't object, of course, to cutting wood from necessity, but why destroy the forests? The woods of Russia are trembling under the blows of the axe. Millions of trees have perished. The homes of the wild animals and birds have been desolated; the rivers are shrinking, and many beautiful landscapes are gone forever. And why? Because men are too lazy and stupid to stoop down and pick up their fuel from the ground. #Quote by Anton Chekhov
Rivers quotes by Rivers Cuomo
#190. When you're starting out, you basically have all these assumptions about what it means to be an artist or how to be a rock star. It took me years, through trial and error, to figure out what does work for me. So much of it is counter to the myth of the rock-star life. #Quote by Rivers Cuomo
Rivers quotes by Jack Kerouac
#191. Thought all the wilderness of America was in the West till the Ghost of the Susquehanna showed me different. No, there is a wilderness in the East; it's the same wilderness Ben Franklin plodded in the oxcart days when he was postmaster, the same as it was when George Washington was a wildbuck Indian-fighter, when Daniel Boone told stories by Pennsylvania lamps and promised to find the Gap, when Bradford built his road and men whooped her up in log cabins. There were not great Arizona spaces for the little man, just the bushy wilderness of eastern Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia, the backroads, the black-tar roads that curve among the mournful rivers like Susquehanna, Monongahela, old Potomac and Monocacy. #Quote by Jack Kerouac
Rivers quotes by John Steinbeck
#192. I shall tell them this story against the background of the county I grew up in and along the river I know and do not love very much. For I have discovered that there are other rivers. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Rivers quotes by Stephen Altrogge
#193. But, if we want our churches to thrive and our devotional lives to flourish, we absolutely must let God be God. We cannot settle for warm, fuzzy, "feel good movie of the year" versions of God. We cannot settle for a God who exists only to meet our needs and make us happy. We cannot settle for a God who is boring and irrelevant. We cannot settle for a God of our own imagination. We must know the ferocious, untamable God. We must let God out of the boxes we have created. We must come face to face with God as he really is, with all his sharp edges and blazing glory and heart-rending beauty. We must encounter the God who makes mountains melt like wax and the angels cover their eyes and the rivers leap for joy. If we are going to love God with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength, we must truly know God. We must know him as he truly is, not as we imagine him to be. We must come to grips with the God who has revealed himself in scripture. #Quote by Stephen Altrogge
Rivers quotes by E. M. Forster
#194. We residents sometimes pity you poor tourists not a little - handed about like a parcel of goods from Venice to Florence, from Florence to Rome, living herded together in pensions or hotels, quite unconscious of anything that is outside Baedeker, their one anxiety to get 'done' and 'through' and go somewhere else. The result is they mix up towns, rivers, palaces in one inextricable whirl. #Quote by E. M. Forster
Rivers quotes by Lisa See
#195. Read a thousand books, and your words will flow like a river. #Quote by Lisa See
Rivers quotes by Katherine Dunham
#196. Haiti itself was also photographed, some of the streets, some of the mountains, rivers, streams, etc. were photographed before talking with me about how I felt about Haiti. Then the camera went to our voodoo temple and saw a serious ceremony, a real ceremony. #Quote by Katherine Dunham
Rivers quotes by Bob Dylan
#197. Praise be to Nero's Neptune The Titanic sails at dawn And everybody's shouting "Which Side Are You On?" And Ezra Pound and T.S. Eliot Fighting in the captain's tower While calypso singers laugh at them And fishermen hold flowers. #Quote by Bob Dylan
Rivers quotes by Francine Rivers
#198. Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is worth more than precious rubies. She will not hinder him but help him all her life. PROVERBS 31:10, 12 #Quote by Francine Rivers
Rivers quotes by Francine Rivers
#199. Past and future were out of her hands. One was finished and couldn't be undone. The other was beyond imagining. #Quote by Francine Rivers
Rivers quotes by Washington Irving
#200. Angling is an amusement peculiarly adapted to the mild and cultivated scenery of England #Quote by Washington Irving
