Sauntering quotes by Elizabeth Stuart Phelps Ward
#1. The Girl of the Period, sauntering before one down Broadway, is one panorama of awful surprises from top to toe. Her clothes characterize her. She never characterizes her clothes. She is upholstered, not ornamented. She is bundled, not draped. She is puckered, not folded. She struts, she does not sweep. She has not one of the attributes of nature nor of proper art. She neither soothes the eye like a flower, nor pleases it like a picture. She wearies it like a kaleidoscope. She is a meaningless dazzle of broken effects. #Quote by Elizabeth Stuart Phelps Ward
Sauntering quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#2. Every walk is a sort of crusade, preached by some Peter the Hermit in us. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Sauntering quotes by William Jacob Holland
#3. Happy is the man who has acquired the love of walking for its own sake! #Quote by William Jacob Holland
Sauntering quotes by George Eliot
#4. Ingenious philosophers tell you, perhaps, that the great work of the steam-engine is to create leisure for mankind. Do not believe them: it only creates a vacuum for eager thought to rush in. Even idleness is eager now - eager for amusement; prone to excursion-trains, art museums, periodical literature, and exciting novels; prone even to scientific theorizing and cursory peeps through microscopes. Old Leisure was quite a different personage. He only read one newspaper, innocent of leaders, and was free from that periodicity of sensations which we call post-time. He was a contemplative, rather stout gentleman, of excellent digestion; of quiet perceptions, undiseased by hypothesis; happy in his inability to know the causes of things, preferring the things themselves. He lived chiefly in the country, among pleasant seats and homesteads, and was fond of sauntering by the fruit-tree wall and scenting the apricots when they were warmed by the morning sunshine, or of sheltering himself under the orchard boughs at noon, when the summer pears were falling. He knew nothing of weekday services, and thought none the worse of the Sunday sermon if it allowed him to sleep from the text to the blessing; liking the afternoon service best, because the prayers were the shortest, and not ashamed to say so; for he had an easy, jolly conscience, broad-backed like himself, and able to carry a great deal of beer or port-wine, not being made squeamish by doubts and qualms and lofty aspirations. #Quote by George Eliot
Sauntering quotes by Louis L'Amour
#5. It is an old custom of these people to pick up a stone and toss it on the pile. Perhaps it is a symbolical lightening of the load they carry, perhaps a small offering to the gods of the trails. #Quote by Louis L'Amour
Sauntering quotes by Charlie Cook
#6. And what exactly is nature walking? It's any and every kind of walking you can do in the natural world. The activity encompasses strolling, striding, sauntering, stepping, treading, tramping, traipsing, traversing, rambling, roving, roaming, racewalking, hiking, meandering, wandering, wending, pacing, peregrinating, perambulating ... in natural surroundings. #Quote by Charlie Cook
Sauntering quotes by Thomas Traherne
#7. To walk abroad is, not with eyes, But thoughts, the fields to see and prize; Else may the silent feet, Like logs of wood, Move up and down, and see no good, Nor Jor nor glory meet. #Quote by Thomas Traherne
Sauntering quotes by Horace Kephart
#8. It is one of the blessings of wilderness life that it shows us how few things we need in order to be perfectly happy. #Quote by Horace Kephart
Sauntering quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#9. She would not risk to grow so fond of her home that it was a pain to leave it; she preferred to remain a wayfarer, sauntering through life with a heart keen to detect beauty, and a mind, open and unbiased, ready to laugh at the absurd. #Quote by W. Somerset Maugham
Sauntering quotes by Kass Morgan
#10. Adrenaline pumped through her body as she stopped in the cabin entryway, just a few inches from Scott. His intense expression made her nervous - he looked suspicious. Was she coming on too strong? Flirting was not her specialty. She'd always been much more comfortable using scalpels and microscopes than smiles and sauntering strides. Scott's #Quote by Kass Morgan
Sauntering quotes by Leslie Stephen
#11. The English literary movement at the end of the 18th century was obviously due in great part, if not mainly, to the renewed practice of walking. #Quote by Leslie Stephen
Sauntering quotes by Julien Smith
#12. What you're missing is that the path itself changes you. #Quote by Julien Smith
Sauntering quotes by Kyoshi Takahama
#13. Walking around an early spring garden- going nowhere. #Quote by Kyoshi Takahama
Sauntering quotes by Mary Quant
#14. A woman is as young as her knees. #Quote by Mary Quant
Sauntering quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#15. Some do not walk at all; others walk in the highways; a few walk across lots. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Sauntering quotes by Edward Abbey
#16. Walking takes longer ... than any other known form of locomotion except crawling. Thus it stretches time and prolongs life. Life is already too short to waste on speed. #Quote by Edward Abbey
Sauntering quotes by Jack Vance
#17. You are sauntering along the back streets of Avallon; you step into a tavern for a cup of wine. A great lummox claims that you have molested his wife; he takes up his cutlass and comes at you. So now! With your knife! Draw and throw! All in a single movement! You advance, pull your knife from the villain's neck, wipe it on his sleeve. If in fact you have molested the dead churl's wife, bid her begone! The episode has quite dampened your spirit. But you are attacked from another side by another husband. Quick! #Quote by Jack Vance
Sauntering quotes by Colin Fletcher
#18. Details of the many walks I made along the crest have blurred, now, into a pleasing tapestry of grass and space and sunlight. #Quote by Colin Fletcher
Sauntering quotes by Richard Rogers
#19. Everyone has the right to walk from one end of the city to the other in secure and beautiful spaces. Everybody has the right to go by public transport. Everybody has the right to an unhampered view down their street, not full of railings, signs and rubbish. #Quote by Richard Rogers
Sauntering quotes by Stewart Udall
#20. Society as we know it is almost a conspiracy against human health. One of the main forces working to counteract that is the trailsman. #Quote by Stewart Udall
Sauntering quotes by David Douglas
#21. The wilderness is a place of rest - not in the sense of being motionless, for the lure, after all, is to move, to round the next bend. The rest comes in the isolation from distractions, in the slowing of the daily centrifugal forces that keep us off balance. #Quote by David Douglas
Sauntering quotes by Bill Bryson
#22. Four times I was honked at for having the temerity to proceed through town without the benefit of metal. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Sauntering quotes by Gary Snyder
#23. The lessons we learn from the wild become the etiquette of freedom. #Quote by Gary Snyder
Sauntering quotes by Karl Philipp Moritz
#24. I now resolved to go to bed early, with a firm purpose of also rising early the next day to revisit this charming walk; for I thought to myself, I have now seen this temple of the modern world imperfectly; I have seen it only by moonlight. #Quote by Karl Philipp Moritz
Sauntering quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#25. I think that I cannot preserve my health and spirits, unless I spend four hours a day at least - and it is commonly more than that - sauntering through the woods and over the hills and fields, absolutely free from all worldly engagements. You may safely say, A penny for your thoughts, or a thousand pounds. When sometimes I am reminded that the mechanics and shopkeepers stay in their shops not only all the forenoon, but all the afternoon too, sitting with crossed legs, so many of them - as if the legs were made to sit upon, and not to stand or walk upon - I think that they deserve some credit for not having all committed suicide long ago. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Sauntering quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#26. She lifted her chin. "I've been shouting for you."
Sam shrugged, sauntering over to her. "I figured you could wait a few minutes, given that I saved the day and all." His brows rose high on his ash-covered face.
"Some hero." She gestured to the ruin of the tower around them. "I've never seen such sloppy work #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Sauntering quotes by Horace Kephart
#27. The man with the knapsack is never lost. No matter whither he may stray, his food and shelter are right with him, and home is wherever he may choose to stop. #Quote by Horace Kephart
Sauntering quotes by Kiersten White
#28. Oh, shut up. He is not saying that he's too good-looking to be friends with girls. But then again, yesterday at the beach, there were a high percentage of beach beauties sitting very close to us and/or sauntering repeatedly past. And he never looked up once. I snort. You poor handsome thing. If only you were ugly, then girls wouldn't have to throw themselves at you all the time. I could break your perfect nose for you, if it'd make your life easier. #Quote by Kiersten White
Sauntering quotes by William James
#29. The supreme contemporary example of such an inability to feel evil is of course Walt Whitman. "His favorite occupation," writes his disciple, Dr. Bucke "seemed to be strolling or sauntering about outdoors by himself, looking at the grass, the trees, the flowers, the vistas of light, the varying aspects of the sky, and listening to the birds, the crickets, the tree frogs, and all the hundreds of natural sounds. #Quote by William James
Sauntering quotes by Colin Fletcher
#30. Mostly, two miles an hour is good going. #Quote by Colin Fletcher
Sauntering quotes by Carlos Castaneda
#31. All paths lead nowhere, so it is important to choose a path that has heart. #Quote by Carlos Castaneda
Sauntering quotes by Meg Cabot
#32. That's not all they ever show," John said. "They show your heart's desire…what you most want to see-or who-at the time you're looking."
"Then mine must be broken," I said. It made sense. Why wouldn't mine be broken? I was broken, too. Or at least I hadn't felt normal in a long time.
"Yours isn't broken," John said. "Considering it's a mobile device from earth, and no mobile device from earth has ever functioned in the Underworld before, I don't quite understand…yet." He was looking at me speculatively. "But it did exactly what ours do. You were worried about your family, so what you were shown was your heart's desire: the one member of your family who's in immediate danger, and needs your-"
"Wait a minute," I interrupted. Something dawned on me. "Was that how you always knew when I was in trouble and needed help? Like that day at school, with Mr. Mueller? And at the jeweler's that time? Because I was the one you most wanted to see when you looked down into your-"
"Oh, look," John said, seeming infinitely relieved by the interruption. "Here comes Frank."
Frank was sauntering over. "Found him," he said, with casual nonchalance.
My heart gave a swoop. Only something as monumental as my cousin finally being located could distract me from the discovery that all those times my boyfriend had rescued me from mortal peril, it had been because he'd been spying on me from the Underworld via a handheld device seemingly operated by the Fates. #Quote by Meg Cabot
Sauntering quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#33. It is often mild distraction that moves imagination forward, not uninterrupted concentration. Thinking then works by indirection, sauntering in a roundabout way to places it cannot reach directly. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Sauntering quotes by Walt Whitman
#34. Poets to Come
POETS to come! orators, singers, musicians to come!
Not to-day is to justify me, and answer what I am for;
But you, a new brood, native, athletic, continental, greater than before known,
Arouse! Arouse
for you must justify me
you must answer.
I myself but write one or two indicative words for the future,
I but advance a moment, only to wheel and hurry back in the darkness.
I am a man who, sauntering along, without fully stopping, turns a casual look upon you, and then averts his face,
Leaving it to you to prove and define it,
Expecting the main things from you. #Quote by Walt Whitman
Sauntering quotes by Darynda Jones
#35. You should go order a sweet roll. Those are to die for. And a carne adovada burrito."
His mouth thinned. "Should I order something else to drink?"
"Yes! A diet whatever. No! A mocha latte. No!" I held up my hand to put him in pause so I could think. "Yes, a mocha latte."
"Are you finished?" he asked, rising to go place his order. He was really hungry.
"Yes. No! Yes. I'm good with that. I have a busy afternoon ahead of me, and I need all the energy I can get. And I need you to be my wingman."
"This should be interesting," he said, sauntering off like he owned the place.
By the time he got back, his fries had disappeared. It was weird. #Quote by Darynda Jones
Sauntering quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#36. Fare well we call to hearth and hall
Though wind may blow and rain may fall
We must away ere break of day
Over the wood and mountain tall
To Rivendell where Elves yet dwell
In glades beneath the misty fell
Through moor and waste we ride in haste
And wither then we cannot tell
With foes ahead behind us dread
Beneath the sky shall be our bed
Until at last our toil be sped
Our journey done, our errand sped
We must away! We must away!
We ride before the break of day! #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Sauntering quotes by Guy De Maupassant
#37. On the land adjoining La Grenouillère strollers were sauntering under the gigantic trees which help to make this part of the island one of the most delightful parks imaginable. Busty women with peroxided hair and nipped-in waists could be seen, made up to the nines with blood red lips and black-kohled eyes. Tightly laced into their garish dresses they trailed in all their vulgar glory over the fresh green grass. They were accompanied by men whose fashion-plate accessories, light gloves, patent-leather boots, canes as slender as threads and absurd monocles made them look like complete idiots. #Quote by Guy De Maupassant
Sauntering quotes by Elizabeth May
#38. She didn't get this pish from you, did she? Because I'm still looking for a reason to lop off one of your appendages after what you did to her, and this looks like the perfect excuse."

"For god's sake," I mutter.

Gavin backs up with his hands raised. "Don't blame me. I might have presented the idea, but she's the one who sauntered off with it."

Derrick narrows his eyes. "Aileana, is that true?"

"Yes," I snap. "Well, not the sauntering. I don't saunter."

"Does . . . this mean I get to keep my appendages?" Gavin asks.

"For now," Derrick says, holding up the needle in a clear threat. #Quote by Elizabeth May
Sauntering quotes by Lola Stark
#39. Got a pair just like those. Never seen 'em lookin' like that though." "Like what?" Sauntering away from her, I smirked. "Sexy as fuck. #Quote by Lola Stark
Sauntering quotes by James Joyce
#40. Do you know what a pearl is and what an opal is? My soul when you came sauntering to me first through those sweet summer evenings was beautiful but with the pale passionless beauty of a pearl. Your love has passed through me and now I feel my mind something like an opal, that is, full of strange uncertain hues and colours, of warm lights and quick shadows and of broken music. #Quote by James Joyce
Sauntering quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#41. Think that I cannot preserve my health and spirits, unless I spend four hours a day at least - and it is commonly more than that - sauntering through the woods and over the hills and fields, absolutely free from all worldly engagements. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Sauntering quotes by Gina Marinello-Sweeney
#42. I stared back at her, my eyes leveled with hers in inscrutable certainty. For a moment, our eyes remained engaged, unflinching and impenetrable, as the shrill, steady call of a siren ran across the street outside, mixing with the effervescent glow of traffic lights and a steady pitter-patter of pedestrian feet sauntering across the street in wakeful gait. #Quote by Gina Marinello-Sweeney
Sauntering quotes by Dan Kiley
#43. A garden should feel like a walk in the woods. #Quote by Dan Kiley
Sauntering quotes by Auliq Ice
#44. Just remember: If you make unfounded assumptions before choosing a path, you're blindly sauntering along. #Quote by Auliq Ice
Sauntering quotes by Thomas Browne
#45. We carry within us the wonders we seek without us. #Quote by Thomas Browne
Sauntering quotes by Heraclitus
#46. The path up and down is one and the same. #Quote by Heraclitus

Sauntering quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#48. It requires a direct dispensation from Heaven to become a walker. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Sauntering quotes by Michel De Certeau
#49. It seems thus possible to give a preliminary definition of walking as a space of enunciation. #Quote by Michel De Certeau
Sauntering quotes by Alexander Ferrick
#50. Richard looked up to find a thirty-ish, tall, black haired man sauntering towards him with a smile that said "You can trust me", but really meant "Don't believe a word I say". This was Jack, and he hadn't changed a bit. #Quote by Alexander Ferrick
Sauntering quotes by Eric Wilson
#51. Inspiration was a temperamental guest. It dropped in unannounced, then left without so much as a goodbye, slipping out a window in the dead of night or sauntering out the front door, leaving the house empty, drafty, and cold. #Quote by Eric Wilson
Sauntering quotes by Wendell Berry
#52. If you don't know where you are, you don't know who you are. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Sauntering quotes by Michael Servetus
#53. In the inhalation and exhalation there is an energy and a lively divine spirit, since He, through his spirit supports the breath of life, giving courage to the people who are in the earth and spirit to those who walk on it. #Quote by Michael Servetus
Sauntering quotes by Charles Dickens
#54. Master Bates sauntering along with his hands in his pockets ... #Quote by Charles Dickens
Sauntering quotes by Jason Schwartzman
#55. In a city where you walk around, it's impossible to plan your day and your life as accidents will happen, you'll overhear things, bump into people, and take unexpected turns. #Quote by Jason Schwartzman
Sauntering quotes by Patrick Campbell, 3rd Baron Glenavy
#56. It seems to me that you can go sauntering along for a certain period, telling the English some interesting things about themselves, and then all at once it feels as if you had stepped on the prongs of a rake. #Quote by Patrick Campbell, 3rd Baron Glenavy
Sauntering quotes by Kevin Kelly
#57. And they discovered something very interesting: when it comes to walking, most of the ant's thinking and decision-making is not in its brain at all. It's distributed. It's in its legs. #Quote by Kevin Kelly
Sauntering quotes by G. M. Trevelyan
#58. Before modern times there was Walking, but not the perfection of Walking, because there was no tea. #Quote by G. M. Trevelyan
Sauntering quotes by Megan Crane
#59. I had a rule about stilettos, and it was this: I didn't wear them unless I planned to kick ass in them. Stilettos were for striding and sauntering, never sulking. #Quote by Megan Crane
Sauntering quotes by A.R. Ammons
#60. With the first step, the number of shapes the walk might take is infinite, but then the walk begins to define itself as it goes along, though freedom remains total with each step: any tempting side road can be turned into an impulse, or any wild patch of woods can be explored. The pattern of the walk is to come true, is to be recognized, discovered. #Quote by A.R. Ammons
Sauntering quotes by Seneca The Elder
#61. There's some end at last for the man who follows a path; mere rambling is interminable. #Quote by Seneca The Elder
Sauntering quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#62. It was a pleasure and a privilege to walk with him [H.D. Thoreau]. He knew the country like a fox or a bird, and passed through it as freely by paths of his own. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Sauntering quotes by Charles Dickens
#63. That constant pacing to and fro, that never-ending restlessness, that incessant tread of feet wearing the rough stones smooth and glossy - is it not a wonder how the dwellers in narrows ways can bear to hear it! Think of a sick man in such a place as Saint Martin's Court, listening to the footsteps, and in the midst of pain and weariness obliged, despite himself (as though it were a task he must perform) to detect the child's step from the man's, the slipshod beggar from the booted exquisite, the lounging from the busy, the dull heel of the sauntering outcast from the quick tread of an expectant pleasure-seeker - think of the hum and noise always being present to his sense, and of the stream of life that will not stop, pouring on, on, on, through all his restless dreams, as if he were condemned to lie, dead but conscious, in a noisy churchyard, and had no hope of rest for centuries to come. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Sauntering quotes by Michael J. Sullivan
#64. A loose board on the boat's deck creaked under Hadrian's weight and Royce glared at him. Twelve years they had worked together, and still Royce did not seem capable of understanding that Hadrian could not float. The problem was that Royce apparently could. He made it look so easy. Hadrian walked like the caricature of a thief - on his toes, his arms out for balance, wavering up and down as if he were on a tightrope. Royce walked as casually as if he were sauntering down a city street. They communicated as they always did on the job, with facial expressions and hand gestures. Royce had learned sign language as part of his guild training but had never bothered teaching Hadrian more than a few signals. Royce was always able to communicate what he needed by pointing, counting with his fingers, or making simple obvious signs like scissoring his fingers across his level palm, imitating legs walking on a floor. He expressed most of his silent dialogue the way he was now: through rolled eyes, glares, and the pitiable shaking of his head. Given how irritated he so often looked, it was a mystery why he put up with Hadrian. #Quote by Michael J. Sullivan
Sauntering quotes by Wallace Stevens
#65. I was the world in which I walked. #Quote by Wallace Stevens
Sauntering quotes by Antonio Machado
#66. Travelers, there is no path, paths are made by walking. #Quote by Antonio Machado
Sauntering quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#67. Reading without purpose is sauntering not exercise. #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Sauntering quotes by Victoria Moran
#68. I firmly believe that everyone deserves to live within walking distance of either beauty or convenience, if not both. (48) #Quote by Victoria Moran
Sauntering quotes by Evelyn Waugh
#69. We could watch the madmen, on clement days, sauntering and skipping among the trim gravel walks and pleasantly planted lawns; happy collaborationists who had given up the unequal struggle, all doubts resolved, all duty done, the undisputed heirs-at-law of a century of progress, enjoying the heritage at their ease. #Quote by Evelyn Waugh
Sauntering quotes by Vikram Seth
#70. There was just enough room for the tonga to get through among the bullock-carts, rickshaws, cycles and pedestrians who thronged both the road and the pavement--which they shared with barbers plying their trade out of doors, fortune-tellers, flimsy tea-stalls, vegetable-stands, monkey-trainers, ear-cleaners, pickpockets, stray cattle, the odd sleepy policeman sauntering along in faded khaki, sweat-soaked men carrying impossible loads of copper, steel rods, glass or scrap paper on their backs as they yelled 'Look out! Look out!' in voices that somehow pierced though the din, shops of brassware and cloth (the owners attempting with shouts and gestures to entice uncertain shoppers in), the small carved stone entrance of the Tinny Tots (English Medium) School which opened out onto the courtyard of the reconverted haveli of a bankrupt aristocrat, and beggars--young and old, aggressive and meek, leprous, maimed or blinded--who would quietly invade Nabiganj as evening fell, attempting to avoid the police as they worked the queues in front of the cinema-halls. Crows cawed, small boys in rags rushed around on errands (one balancing six small dirty glasses of tea on a cheap tin tray as he weaved through the crowd) monkeys chattered in and bounded about a great shivering-leafed pipal tree and tried to raid unwary customers as they left the well-guarded fruit-stand, women shuffled along in anonymous burqas or bright saris, with or without their menfolk, a few students from the university #Quote by Vikram Seth
Sauntering quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#71. I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Sauntering quotes by Thomas Kincade
#72. Everyone can identify with a fragrant garden, with beauty of sunset, with the quiet of nature, with a warm and cozy cottage. #Quote by Thomas Kincade
Sauntering quotes by Zhuangzi
#73. I know the joy of fishes in the river through my own joy, as I go walking along the same river. #Quote by Zhuangzi
