True friendship multiplies the good in life and divides its evils. Strive to have friends, for life without friends is like life on a desert island... to find one real friend in a lifetime is good fortune; to keep him is a blessing.
No one can live without relationship. You may withdraw into the mountains, become a monk, a sannyasi, wander off into the desert by yourself, but you are related. You cannot escape from that absolute fact. You cannot exist in isolation.
What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Without music, life is a journey through a desert.
Life Is A
Rebellion without truth is like spring in a bleak, arid desert.
I don't see the desert as barren at all; I see it as full and ripe. It doesn't need to be flattered with rain. It certainly needs rain, but it does with what it has, and creates amazing beauty.
I love the desert and its incomparable sense of space.
The rules of survival never change, whether you're in a desert or in an arena.
Sadly, it's much easier to create a desert than a forest.

The desert is natural; when you are out there, you can get in tune with your environment, something you lose when you live in the city.
And all around is the desert; a corner of the mournful kingdom of sand.
If we choose to walk into a forest where a tiger lives, we are taking a chance. If we swim in a river where crocodiles live, we are taking a chance. If we visit the desert or climb a mountain or enter a swamp where snakes have managed to survive, we are taking a chance.
The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides.
I am very much a person who appreciates perennial things. Things like a Lacoste shirt, a Clarks desert boot, Persol sunglasses and Vans shoes that have been the same forever. There are certain things that once you find it, you like it and it's done. I like Italian clothing, like suits from Battistoni and I have a shirt by Piero Albertelli.
A desert is a place without expectation.
If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in 5 years there'd be a shortage of sand.
Somebody once told me I treated my smart phone like Wilson, the volleyball Tom Hanks turns into a friend when he's stranded on a desert island in that movie 'Castaway.'

The desert has its holiness of silence, the crowd its holiness of conversation.
I had to live in the desert before I could understand the full value of grass in a green ditch.

When I was little, I went to the Sahara desert and met an older woman with beautiful earrings that came all the way down to her stomach. She told me, 'For us Tuareg, jewelry is not meant for decoration. It absorbs negative energy that comes your way.' So think twice when you buy a vintage ring!
I've always really, really wanted to go to Egypt and go inside some pyramids and just hang out there. I don't know why. I don't like hot weather, and I don't like the desert, but something about the pyramid and the mummies and all their history there, I'd love to go check it out.
This is the sense of the desert hills, that there is room enough and time enough.
Mary Hunter Austin
I have never been in a natural place and felt that it was a waste of time. I never have. And it's a relief. If I'm walking around a desert or whatever, every second is worthwhile.
You should not see the desert simply as some faraway place of little rain. There are many forms of thirst.
