“I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you're going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.”

“I believe in going with the flow. I don't believe in fighting against the flow. You ride on your river and you go with the tides and the flow. But it has to be your river, not someone else's. Everyone has their own river, and you don't need to swim,float,sail on their's, but you need to be in your own river and you need to go with it. And I don't believe in fighting the wind. You go and you fly with your wind. Let everyone else catch their own gusts of wind and let them fly with their own gusts of wind, and you go and you fly with yours.”
C. JoyBell C.

L. Jagi Lamplighter
“I loved weather, all weather, not just the good kind. I loved balmy days, fearsome storms, blizzards, and spring showers. And the colors! Everyday brought something to be admired: the soft feathery patterns of cirrus clouds, the deep, dark grays of thunderheads, the lacy gold and peach of the early morning sunrise. The sky and its moods called to me.”
L. Jagi Lamplighter, Prospero Lost

George R.R. Martin
“Sometimes the storm winds blow so strong a man has no choice but to furl his sails.”
George R.R. Martin, A Storm of Swords

“Gods must be crazy
Flowers must be daisy
Clouds must be hazy
Winds must be lazy
What else it could be…
My heart must be in love lately…”
Heenashree Khandelwal

“I feel there will be a time. A time when there will be no agony. I will never cry. There will come a time when my smile will be genuine. You will be able to tell. I feel there will come a time when the winds will carry all the wrinkles away when the rain will bring beauty with it when the sun shine will carry the birds my way. When the flowers will be welcome in this world. The pain I feel will not stay forever. Nothing will last. The good brought bad with it. I know the bad has already begun. What I know more is that the good is hidden in it. It is never gone. It will never go. And I will wait!”
Aleena Yasin

John Dryden
“The winds that never moderation knew,
Afraid to blow too much, too faintly blew;
Or out of breath with joy, could not enlarge
Their straighten'd lungs or conscious of their charge.”
John Dryden

Catherynne M. Valente
“Have you never known a cruel wind? What an easy, balmy, tropical life you must have! I never tease, madam! I coax, I beguile, I stomp, I throw tantrums, and for certain, I freeze — I am the Coldest and Harshest of all the Harsh Airs! I am the shiver of the world! But I do not tease. You can cause ever so much more trouble by taking folk seriously, asking just what they're doing and doing just what they ask.”
Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two

Anthony Liccione
“The American flag doesn't give her glory on a peaceful, calm day. It's when the winds pick up and become boisterous, do we see her strength. When she unfolds her hand, and shows her frayed fingers, where we see the stretch of red-blood lines of man that fought for this land. The purity of white stripes that strips our sins, and the stars of Abraham's covenant, broad in a midnight blue sky. The rights our forefathers established. As it waves high in the currents of freedom, where the Torch of Liberty shines over the sea, does she give meaning to unity. When we strive as one nation, or when it drops half-mast, to a fallen soldier.”
Anthony Liccione

Shawntel Jefferson

Shawntel Jefferson, Refreshing Winds 31 Day Devotional

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“My soul is utterly frantic for that single place of perfect refuge from which I can clearly see the winds rip and hear the tempest tear, yet despite the ferocity of the tumult I rest in such a sublime peace it is as if neither existed at all. And if I have not yet found such a place, it is because I have not yet found God.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough, An Intimate Collision: Encounters with Life and Jesus

Grace Willows
“She dreamed of autumn. Of chilly autumn winds and soft fall rains. She could even feel the cool moisture as the rain drops touched her face and ran down her cheeks. Her denim skirt and work boots felt heavy as the rain in her dreams splashed cold water against them”
Grace Willows

“There was a sense of being in the midst of something having prodigious weight and volume but no form, of being utterly unable to utilize past experience.”
Thomas Gallagher, Assault In Norway: Sabotaging the Nazi Nuclear Program

John E. Wordslinger
“The garden was full of sorrow
Songbirds and unusual winds whistled a rhyme
Clouds caused to appear and cast down darkness
For this was the first day the sun didn't shine”
John E. Wordslinger

Steven Magee
“In a climate changed world, it is a smart person who thins their trees so that the abnormally high winds can pass through them without damage.”
Steven Magee

“Gradually the winds became more frequent and aggressive, forcing the trees to abandon their leaves that passed over me like pixies venturing into the night on wild stallions.”
Kirsty Louise Farley, Shoal: A Thanet Writers Anthology

“just like...
a woman breaks a man,
a man breaks a woman!
one man who made me misandry,
one who made me look up to him.
one man who shatters the hopes,
one man who rebuilds them.
one man with fearful limitless anger,
one man who learns to overcome it.
just like...
a woman makes a man,
a man makes a woman!
one man who commands,
one man who let to command.
one man who demands,
one man who let to demand.
one man who apprehends the wings,
one man who put trust in the winds.
just like...
a woman makes a man,
a man makes a woman!”
Tahreem Rahat

Alexander McCall Smith

Mehmet Murat ildan

“Commanding his domain on top of the world, Crater Lake sits in brooding blue and bold relief against an unsympathetic sky, the water like a solid, weighty mass anchored at the earth’s core. The winds are unforgiving, the clouds hostile, the hidden shoreline mysterious.”
Foster Kinn, Freedom's Rush: Tales from The Biker and The Beast

Michelle Huneven
“David Ibañez was in town. . . . Both he and Rafael suffered from terrible hay fever and nursed cups of a naturally decongesting tea made from the mahuang plant, brewing more tea for anyone else who needed it. David had brought the mahuang seeds from an herbalist in Shanghai, and Rafael kept a good crop of the low, scrubby bush in his yard at all times. He said it was the best hay fever treatment he knew, and whenever Santa Ana weather kicked in, he was the most popular man in the valley.”
Michelle Huneven, Round Rock

Michael Bassey Johnson
