But I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray fro them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.
" Love your enemies, Bless those who curse you, that ye may be the sons of your Heavenly Father, who makes the sun to shine on the good and on the evil , and the rain to fall on the just and unjust." How monstrous a calumny have not impostors dared to advance against the mild and gentle author of this just sentiment, and against the whole tenor of his doctrines and his life, overflowing with benevolence and forbearance and compassion !Percy Bysshe Shelley
When thou cuttest down thine harvest in thy field, and hast forgot a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch it: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow: that the Lord thy God may Bless thee in all the work of thine hands.Bible (Old Testament)
It is they who glorify, who shall enjoy Him; they who deny themselves, who shall not be denied; they who labor on earth, who shall rest in heaven; they who bear the cross, who shall wear the crown; they who seek to Bless others, who shall be blessed.thomas guthrie
We praise Him, we Bless Him, we adore Him, we glorify Him, and we wonder who is that baritone across the aisle and that pretty woman on our right who smells of apple blossoms. Our bowels stir and our cod itches and we amend our prayers for the spiritual life with the hope that it will not be too spiritual.john cheever
Then Bless thy secret growth, nor catch At noise, but thrive unseen and dumb; Keep clean, be as fruit, earn life, and watch Till the white-wing'd reapers come.Henry Vaughan
Thee, bold Longinus! all the Nine inspire, And Bless their Critick with a Poet's Fire. An ardent Judge, who Zealous in his Trust, With Warmth gives Sentence, yet is always Just; Whose own Example strengthens all his Laws, And Is himself that great Sublime he draws.
Me voici devant tous un homme plein de sens Connaissant la vie et de la mort ce qu'un vivant peut connaître Ayant éprouvé les douleurs et les joies de l'amour Ayant su quelquefois imposer ses idées Connaissant plusieurs langages Ayant pas mal voyagé Ayant vu la guerre dans l'Artillerie et l'lnfanterie Blessé à la tête trépané sous le chloroforme Ayant perdu ses meilleurs amis dans l'effroyable lutte Je sais d'ancien et de nouveau autant qu'un homme seul pourrait des deux savoirguillaume apollinaire
God Bless our good and gracious King Whose promise none relies on, Who never said a foolish thing Nor ever did a wise one.Rochester, John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of
Since providence and necessity has cast them upon it, he should pray God to Bless their counsels.Oliver Cromwell
During the election, Prime Minister Harper ended some of his speeches with the words “God Bless Canada.” Indeed, the prophet Isaiah says that God blesses you when you “share your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house” (Isaiah 58.7). We urge the Prime Minister to spend tax dollars now in a way that will bring the homeless poor into their own house, and allow them the dignity of sharing their bread with others.andrew hutchison
The eyes of all America are upon us, as we play our part in posterity will Bless or curse us.henry knox

Some shout him, and some hang upon his car, To gaze in his eyes, and Bless him. Maidens wave Their 'kerchiefs, and old women weep for joy; While others, not so satisfied, unhorse The gilded equipage, and turning loose His steeds, usurp a place they well deserve.william cowper
Cold, impossible, ahead Lifts the mountain's lovely head Whose white waterfall could Bless Travellers in their last distress.wystan hugh auden
How widely its agencies vary, To save, to ruin, to curse, to Bless, As even its minted coins express, Now stamped with the image of Good Queen Bess, And now of a Bloody Mary.thomas hood
Spirit, Patience, Gentleness, All that can adorn and Bless Art thou let deeds, not words, express Thine exceeding loveliness.Percy Bysshe Shelley
When pain can't Bless, heaven quits us in despair.Edward Young
I thank God humbly and sincerely. God, who has visited us with many trials, and led us like the Israelites of old from place to place without any certain abode, Bless, we beseech Thee, our return home, and mercifully grant that the afflictions and anxieties of that long probation may bear fruit in a more self-denying and godly life:;; and that we may have our hearts fixed on a yet more abiding resting-place, eternal in the heavens, for Jesus Christ's sake.'
Never do what you cannot ask Christ to Bless; and never go into any place or any pursuit in which you cannot ask Christ Jesus to go with you.
Be patterns, be examples in all countries, places, islands, nations wherever you come; that your carriage and life may preach among all sorts of people, and to them; then you will come to walk cheerfully over the world, answering that of God in everyone; whereby in them you may be a blessing , and make the witness of God in them to Bless you.
Oh God, Bless Your Messenger and Your servant Jesus son of Mary. Peace be on him the day he was born, and the day he dies, and the day he shall be raised alive! Such was Jesus, son of Mary, (this is) a statement of the truth concerning which they doubt.
