Famous quotes containing the word soaring:

    There are in me, in literary terms, two distinct characters: one who is taken with roaring, with lyricism, with soaring aloft, with all the sonorities of phrase and summits of thought; and the other who digs and scratches for truth all he can, who is as interested in the little facts as the big ones, who would like to make you feel materially the things he reproduces.
    Gustave Flaubert (1821–1880)

    O Holy Wisdom, Soaring Power, encompass us with wings unfurled,
    and carry us, encircling all, above, below, and through the world.
    Hildegard Von Bingen (1078–1179)

    Think of our little eggshell of a canoe tossing across that great lake, a mere black speck to the eagle soaring above it!
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
