Quotes about ruminate

John Keats

The Human Seasons

FOUR Seasons fill the measure of the year;
There are four seasons in the mind of man:
He has his lusty Spring, when fancy clear
Takes in all beauty with an easy span:
He has his Summer, when luxuriously
Spring’s honey’d cud of youthful thought he loves
To ruminate, and by such dreaming high
Is nearest unto heaven: quiet coves
His soul has in its Autumn, when his wings
He furleth close; contented so to look
On mists in idleness—to let fair things
Pass by unheeded as a threshold brook.
He has his Winter too of pale misfeature,
Or else he would forego his mortal nature.

William Shakespeare

Speak to me as to thy thinkings, as thou dost ruminate, and give thy worst of thoughts the worst of words.

Thank you Duncan Wyllie

Incorrigible,
What do I do with you now,
I shall ruminate.

And then find something
To get back at you, my friend,
Just you wait and see.

Night is bright

Don’t dispel the night.
There only you gather your might.
You are your own, without plight.
You can ruminate and fantasize.

One is up to the one down

So much pride I have for your love
And as much, I ruminate on my love for you
Not that you are high on a tower
But that I am low in a ditch.

The Valid is more valid to the invalid.

Measure Him

Measure a man by the years of his summary of other men,
And women,
And children,
And animals.
We are animals of people in nature among the masses of men and women.
We are a summary of a holiness,
And that is belonging to the Lord.
Our minds have to ruminate,
Have to puzzle
And must dream
Until the rooms cave in
And our souls take pain over other souls.

Souls need victory to keep on enlightening.

Universal joke

You can’t get really near
the Beloved Friend
who some call God
without a sense of humour;

humour; and paradox:
sadness brings humility,
humility catches God’s ear…
now you’re laughing for sheer joy.

And have you heard this one…:
you can’t take anything from this world
without the world taking something from you…
isn’t that the best joke that ever was…?

Cows, who ruminate as well as Rumi ever did
Call it the Unified Field Theory.

O, Conscience...! ! ! !

Overcome with remorse and guilt,
O, Conscience… stress has built...

I can’t sleep and just ruminate,
What if, I had shown some restraint?

“My dear, no point in regrets,
Don’t ask what if… it’s too late.

Fact that you have come to realise
Is atonement… for now…suffice

You have reached a turning point,
Keep this crucial appointment…

Dear, wise learn, from their mistakes,
Forgive your transgression and make

A conscious effort to not be complacent
Go about life mindfully to be resilient…”

Freefalling

Freefalling into the arms of gravity
the echoes in the cobwebbed vault
remained a fading noise whilst these
shards of affinities inveigled with a calamity
spinning deep in a helical seafloor

A sudden gush of ecstatic currents
rippled into the wrinkled body
and a red breeze swept the gray face
for a moment of hapless vulnerability -
humility in a fray against obduracy
the coiled rope of resistance
killed the noose in a taut pull

Without hitting the rock bottom
I ruminate in a sedating topple:
Have I been at any edges at all?

John Keats

Sonnet. The Human Seasons

Four Seasons fill the measure of the year;
There are four seasons in the mind of man:
He has his lusty Spring, when fancy clear
Takes in all beauty with an easy span:
He has his Summer, when luxuriously
Spring's honied cud of youthful thought he loves
To ruminate, and by such dreaming high
Is nearest unto heaven: quiet coves
His soul has in its Autumn, when his wings
He furleth close; contented so to look
On mists in idleness-to let fair things
Pass by unheeded as a threshold brook.
He has his Winter too of pale misfeature,
Or else he would forego his mortal nature.
