Looking Up Peers Infinite

“When we look up, it widens our horizons.  We see what a little speck we are in the universe, so insignificant, and we all take ourselves so seriously, but in the sky, there are no boundaries.  No differences of caste or religion or race.”  ~Julia Gregson


“It is better to have your head in the clouds, and know where you are… than to breathe the clearer atmosphere below them, and think that you are in paradise.” ~Henry David Thoreau


“The sky broke like an egg into full sunset and the water caught fire.”  ~Pamela Hansford Johnson

“Going around under an umbrella interferes with one’s looking up at the sky.” ~Jerzy Kosinksi


“A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed… It feels an impulsion… this is the place to go now.  But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons.” ~Richard Bach


“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”  ~John Lubbock


“Look at your feet.  You are standing in the sky.  When we think of the sky, we tend to look up, but the sky actually begins at the earth.”  ~Diane Ackerman


“Excuse me while I kiss the sky.” ~Jimi Hendrix


“Go forth under the open sky, and list To Nature’s teachings.” ~William C. Bryant


“The sky is the daily bread of the eyes.”  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson


“When I do not walk in the clouds I walk as though I were lost.”  ~Antonio Porchia, Voces, 1943, translated from Spanish by W.S. Merwin


“Thank God men cannot fly, and lay waste the sky as well as the earth.”  ~Henry David Thoreau


“How prone poor Humanity is to dam up the minutest remnants of its freedom, and build an artificial roof to prevent it looking up to the clear blue sky.” ~E.T.A. Hoffmann


“You must not blame me if I do talk to the clouds.”  ~Henry David Thoreau


“I never saw a man who looked with such a wistful eye upon that little tent of blue which prisoners call the sky.”  ~Oscar Wilde
