Quotes Using the Word Envelop
Finding quotes for the word envelop was hard because computers want to add an e and I didn’t want to push the envelope and offer you a bunch of empty envelopes quotes. So here are some synonyms.
Take a hot sudsy bath. Light some mood candles. Let the suds and silence engulf you and scour away your troubles. Oh, joy!
Follow that by blanketing yourself in a towel taken fresh from the dryer.
Henry Did It – Envelope
“The purity men love is like the mists which envelope the earth, and not like the azure ether beyond.”~Henry David Thoreau

“Don’t shrink from nature’s brutal perfection.Take joy in it. Embrace it. Understand it and revel in it. Respect it’s strength, it’s wisdom, it’s brutality and it’s all-encompassing power. The highest law has always been, and shall be, nature; and the greatest wisdom forever lives in and through nature’s eternal Fascism.”~Boyd Rice
Puppy Girl was having the time of her young life, embracing her new surroundings with their brutal perfection. Straining to the furthest extent of her leash, she sniffed each thistle discovering the animal smells they had trapped. When she turned back to us, burs the size of her tiny nose enveloped her mouth. She tried pawing and licking them out which made matters worse. We tried pulling them out taking all the joy out of her exploration.

Just as Vince and I dispaired of relieving her, along came a kind ranger prepared for almost any emergency. He enveloped Puppy Girl with his big arms and painlessly cut the burs out of her face and feet.
“Sound character provides the power with which a person may ride the emergencies of life instead of being overwhelmed by them. Failure is… the highway to success.”~ Og Mandino
Puppy Girl learned from her mistakes and was more careful about walking in weeds after that.
In Every Moment – Find a Miracle
“Each moment is a miracle encompassing everything: the joy and sorrow, the failure and success, the disappointment and happiness, the celebration and grief.”~ Kazuaki Tanahashi
For this theme, I chose these photos because they showed something being enveloped.
Can you hear the silence in the cloud and net-encased peach orchard and the vine-covered forest?
This isn’t Write Photo, but feel free to use my pictures or quotes if your brain is foggy and ideas are trapped silently inside. Be sure to visit KL Caley at Write Photo for fresh ideas each week for those who love to write.
Now it’s your turn.
Create (or find) a post on your blog that overwhelms, enshrouds, or blankets. You decide and link it here in the comment section. Or talk to us (my WQ readers and me) in the comment section.
“The mystery of God hugs you in its all-encompassing arms.”
— Hildegard of Bingen
