Peru

Quotes about Peru

145 quotes about Peru.

Mario Vargas Llosa

Since it is impossible to know what's really happening, we Peruvians lie, invent, dream and take refuge in illusion. Because of these strange circumstances, Peruvian life, a life in which so few actually do read, has become literary.

Edward Lear

There was an Old Man of Peru,
Who never knew what he should do;
So he tore off his hair,
And behaved like a bear,
That intrinsic Old Man of Peru.

Mi Media Naranja

I am searching for my soul mate
Oh baby I know it’s not too late
Maybe try in a foreign tongue
The very reason for my song

Hey why not in Spanish…

Chorus:
Mi Media Naranja por donde encuentra
Madrid, Perú o Sri Lanka…
(interlude with Spanish guitar)

Oh I am not gonna vanish..

I climb mountains and dive a sea
So why not search an orange tree
Ying and Yang my high ambition
Oh on my love life’s mission

Chorus:

Like An Inca

Said the condor to the preying mantis
Were gonna lose this place just like we lost atlantis
Brother we got to go sooner than you know
The gypsy told my fortune, she said that nothin showed.
Who put the bomb on the sacred altar?
Why should we die if it comes our way?
Why should we care about a little button
Being pushed by someone we dont even know?
Well. I wish I was an aztec,
Or a runner in peru
I would build such beautiful buildings
To house the chosen few
Like an inca from peru.
If you want to get high, build a strong foundation
Sink those pylons deep now and reach for the sky
If you want to get lost in the jungle rhythm
Get down on the ground and pretend youre swimmin.
If you want to put ice in the lava river
First you must climb, then you must stand and shiver
Brother we got to go sooner than you know

There once was a man from Peru
Who trapped a small stone in his shoe;
It felt like a whopper
As he came a cropper
Then proceeded to turn the air blue.

Diane von Furstenberg

If you like trekking, go to the Himalayas or Peru. I love those kinds of trips. But it all depends on your own life and what you like and what you expect.

A Flower To Auroville Mother-61

Peruvian lily(Lily-of-the-Incas,
Alstroemeria spp.)


Fabulous of a Princess charming
South of Bharath crowned having

Butterflied of wings designed
Skirted of a fashion designed

From wheely tubers umbrella-like
Petaled ornamental orchid-like

Lush and limply leaves all twisted
Lush and bushy flowers little curled

Big and small petals mostly six
In and out three-three artly fix

The Damsel Of Peru

Where olive leaves were twinkling in every wind that blew,
There sat beneath the pleasant shade a damsel of Peru.
Betwixt the slender boughs, as they opened to the air,
Came glimpses of her ivory neck and of her glossy hair;
And sweetly rang her silver voice, within that shady nook,
As from the shrubby glen is heard the sound of hidden brook.

'Tis a song of love and valour, in the noble Spanish tongue,
That once upon the sunny plains of old Castile was sung;
When, from their mountain holds, on the Moorish rout below,
Had rushed the Christians like a flood, and swept away the foe.
A while that melody is still, and then breaks forth anew
A wilder rhyme, a livelier note, of freedom and Peru.

For she has bound the sword to a youthful lover's side,
And sent him to the war the day she should have been his bride,
And bade him bear a faithful heart to battle for the right,
And held the fountains of her eyes till he was out of sight.
Since the parting kiss was given, six weary months are fled,
And yet the foe is in the land, and blood must yet be shed.

Easy Money

South of the border and busted,
Caught by a woman I trusted,
Now dont you call me a fool,
It could have happened to you,
Its just my luck,
It had to happen to me.
Sweet carmelita betrayed me
She said, take me home, serenade me.
I figured a song could do me no wrong.
I didnt know how wrong I could be.
Easy money for just one run to peru.
Itll be so easy. well have no trouble gettin through.
Well I almost made it, except for that one border guard.
He opened up my guitar. hello prison yard.
Goodbye easy money. easy money.
The chiquita must have told em my story
cause when my eyes finally focused next morning
Carmelita had spoken bout guitars and some coke
And she laughed as they slapped me in chains.
I was thrown in cell with a killer.

Inner Tube

On the warm July river
head back

upside down river
for a roof

slowly paddling
towards an estuary between trees

there's a dog
learning to swim near me
friends on shore

my head
dips
back to the eyebrow
I'm the prow
on an ancient vessel,
this afternoon
I'm going down to Peru

Love, really

Love is always
wondering if
Love has given
you the syph

Love is patient
Love runs free
Love slept with his
secretary

Love is bang
Love is pow
Love is watching
him play WoW.

Love is cunning
like a cat
Love walked out
When I got fat

God-Worship

Statues in competitions allover the world!
With one higher than the other from country to country;
But this act is god-worship.
22m High Statue in 'Maratea' (Italy) ,
25m High Statue in 'Cusco' (Peru) ,
27m High Statue in 'Dili' (East Timor) ,
28m High Statue in 'Lissabon' (Portugal) ,
30m High Statue in 'Cochabanba' (Bolivia) ,
And 38m High Statue in 'Swiebodzin' (Poland) ,
All in the name of competition around this world;
But this act is god-worship.

A Flower To Auroville Mother-89

Nithya Malli(Peru Malli
River Jasmine, Brazilian Jasmine,
Jasminum fluminense)

Is that you're kissed
By celestial breeze
All nights till end
Richly you flit fragrance

And so called NithyaMalli?

Me a captive captured
Await your florescence
To turn from creamy bud
To pure white fluorescence

Anxiety-borne inquisition..

And trifoliate, big, broad
Leaflets in humble obeisance
