WHO HASN’T LOOKED UP AT THE SKY and marveled at the kaleidoscope at play in the heavens? At once imminent and infinite, the banner of the sky is one of mankind’s oldest obsessions. From the ancient Mayan stargazing priests of days past to the HDR prowess of today’s typical Vimeo contributor, the sky is the limit.
In honor and in reverence to the staggering expanse we call the sky, here are three quotes immortalizing man’s love of looking up.
A certain recluse, I know not who, once said that no bonds attached him to this life, and the only thing he would regret leaving was the sky. ~ Kenko Yoshida
Always keep your mind as bright and clear as the vast sky, the great ocean, and the highest peak, empty of all thoughts. Always keep your body filled with light and heat. Fill yourself with the power of wisdom and enlightenment. ~ Morihei Ueshiba
Excuse me while I kiss the sky. ~ Jimi Hendrix
