Another one that Damien has read so beautifully on "Poetry Please" by my favourite poet.

The Wild Swans at Coole

BY WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS

The trees are in their autumn beauty,
The woodland paths are dry,
Under the October twilight the water
Mirrors a still sky;
Upon the brimming water among the stones
Are nine-and-fifty swans.

The nineteenth autumn has come upon me
Since I first made my count;
I saw, before I had well finished,
All suddenly mount
And scatter wheeling in great broken rings
Upon their clamorous wings.

I have looked upon those brilliant creatures,
And now my heart is sore.
All's changed since I, hearing at twilight,
The first time on this shore,
The bell-beat of their wings above my head,
Trod with a lighter tread.

Unwearied still, lover by lover,
They paddle in the cold
Companionable streams or climb the air;
Their hearts have not grown old;
Passion or conquest, wander where they will,
Attend upon them still.

But now they drift on the still water,
Mysterious, beautiful;
Among what rushes will they build,
By what lake's edge or pool
Delight men's eyes when I awake some day
To find they have flown away?

I have a thing about swans, the most beautiful creatures in the world.

I'm in love with the natural world, all beautiful and magical all by itself, without and beyond our control. Since childhood, all things about the planet we live on, from the tiniest to the hugest, have filled me with awe and wonder. So I thought I'd start big and  share some stunning photos of the 7 natural wonders of the world!

Northern Lights / Aurora Borealis

This is perhaps a topic on its own, but what are your fave inspirational movie quotes?

Ones that make you feel hopeful and encouraged, give you courage or motivation, leave you feeling inspired creatively or spiritually, or are just philosophically mind blowing?

Here are a few to start off with.

 

“There should be no boundaries to human endeavor. We are all different. However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there’s life, there is hope.”

– Stephen Hawking, The Theory of Everything

 

“Never be in a hurry. You’ll miss the best parts in life.”

- Marlene Dietrich, Around the World in Eighty Days

 

“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.”

– Gandalf, Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

 

“No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.”

– John Keating, Dead Poets Society

 

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

– Ferris, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

 

I kept dreaming of a world, I thought I’d never see. And then one day… I got in.”

Jeff Bridges, Tron

 

“Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of, who do the things that no one can imagine.”

– Christopher, The Imitation Game

 

“It is not our abilities that show what we truly are. It is our choices.”

– Dumbledore,  Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

 

“The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.”

– The Emperor, Mulan

 

“Oh yes, the past can hurt. But you can either run from it, or learn from it.”

– Rafiki, The Lion King

 

"You have to get lost before you find yourself."

– Margo, Paper Towns

 

“Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming. What do we do? We swim, swim.”

– Dory, Finding Nemo

 

“Whenever I despair, I remember that the way of truth and love has always won. There may be tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they may seem invincible, but in the end, they always fail. Think of it: always.”

- Gandhi, in Gandhi

 

"Difficult to see. Always in motion is the future."

Yoda, The Empire Strikes Back

 

“Many of the truths that we cling to depend on our point of view.”

– Yoda, Return of the Jedi

 

"Your focus determines your reality."

- Qui-Gon Jinn,  The Phantom Menace
