The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.
Generations to come, it may well be, will scarce believe that such a man as this one ever in flesh and Blood walked upon this Earth.Albert Einstein
Everything is flowing going somewhere, animals and so-called lifeless rocks as well as water. Thus the snow flows fast or slow in grand beauty-making glaciers and avalanches; the air in majestic floods carrying minerals, plant leaves, seeds, spores, with streams of music and fragrance; water streams carrying rocks ... . While the stars go streaming through space pulsed on and on forever like Blood globules in Nature's warm heart.john muir
All flesh is one: what matter scores; Or color of the suit Or if the helmet glints with blue or gold? All is one bold achievement, All is fine spring-found-again-in-autumn day When juices run in antelopes along our Blood, And green our flag, forever green…ray bradbury
A is for Adam and E is for Eve. B is for bile, Blood and bones.Peter Greenaway
We disagreed with Zinoviev and Kamenev because we knew that the policy of amputation was fraught with great dangers for the Party, that the method of amputation, the method of Blood-letting and they demanded Blood was dangerous, infectious: today you amputate one limb, tomorrow another, the day after tomorrow a third what will we have left in the Party?joseph stalin
I have nothing to offer but Blood, toil, tears and sweat.Lord Randolph Henry Spencer Churchill
Dost thou not know that love respects no Blood, Cares not for difference of birth or state?thomas dekker
When I reached the [Yosemite] valley, all the rocks seemed talkative, and more lovable than ever. They are dear friends, and have warm Blood gushing through their granite flesh; and I love them with a love intensified by long and close companionship. ... I ... bathed in the bright river, sauntered over the meadows, conversed with the domes, and played with the pines.john muir
From the lone shieling of the misty island Mountains divide us, and the waste of seas – Yet still the Blood is strong, the heart is Highland, And we in dreams behold the Hebrides! Fair these broad meads, these hoary woods are grand; But we are exiles from our fathers' land.
Christianity is most admirably adapted to the training of slaves, to the perpetuation of a slave society; in short, to the very conditions confronting us to-day. … The rulers of the earth have realized long ago what potent poison inheres in the Christian religion. That is the reason they foster it; that is why they leave nothing undone to instill it into the Blood of the people. They know only too well that the subtleness of the Christian teachings is a more powerful protection against rebellion and discontent than the club or the gun.emma goldman
Waste of Blood, and waste of Tears, Waste of youth's most precious years, Waste of ways the saints have trod, Waste of Glory, waste of God, War!'Woodbine Willie'
So I lie, whose fount of pride, Dear distress, and joy allied,
Is my somber flesh and skin,
With the dark Blood dammed within.
The glories of our Blood and state Are shadows, not substantial things; There is no armour against fate; Death lays his icy hand on kings: Scepter and crown Must tumble down, And in the dust be equal made With the poor crooked scythe and spade.james shirley
Humility must always be the portion of any man who receives acclaim earned in Blood of his followers and sacrifices of his friends.
Such was the will of the Father that his Son, blessed and glorious, whom he gave to us, and who was born for us, should by his own Blood, sacrifice, and oblation, offer himself on the altar of the cross, not for himself, by whom "all things were made," but for our sins, leaving us an example that we should follow his steps.francis of assisi
Henceforth we will tackle our enemies that come face to face with us and we will not be stabbed in from behind by internal foes... To this end, we will arm the allies and comrades of the broad masses without giving respite to reactionaries, and avenge the Blood of our comrades double - and triple - fold.mengistu haile mariam
Racing, competing, is in my Blood. It's part of me, it's part of my life; I've been doing it all my life. And it stands up before anything else.Ayrton Senna
What I affirm is the intuition that where God's presence is no longer a tenable supposition and where His absence is no longer a felt, indeed overwhelming weight, certain dimensions of thought and creativity are no longer attainable. And I would vary Yeats's axiom so as to say: no man can read fully, can answer answeringly to the aesthetic, whose "nerve and Blood" are at peace in sceptical rationality, are now at home in immanence and verification. We must read as if.George Steiner
This country has shed more Blood for the freedom of other people than all the other nations in the history of the world combined, and I'm tired of people feeling like they've got to apologize for America.fred thompson
Where refugees seek deliverance that never comesAnd the heart consumes itself as if it would live,Where children age before their timeAnd life wears down the edges of the mind,Where the old man sits with mind grown cold,While bones and sinew, Blood and cell, go slowly down to death,Where fear companions each day's life,And Perfect Love seems long delayed.CHRISTMAS IS WAITING TO BE BORN:In you, in me, in all mankind.howard thurman
The purpose of separation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe in Blood for centuries.james madison
Those of us born after that era (of World War II), or with little or no knowledge of those experiences, take freedom for granted. In fact, we give little thought because we are preoccupied with the here and now and yet we owe a debt of gratitude that can never be repaid because you (returned servicemen) paid the price in Blood.ratu joni madraiwiwi
Most of the American laws defining race are not to be compared with those once enforced by Nazi Germany, the latter being relatively more liberal. In the view of the Nazis, persons having less than one fourth Jewish Blood could qualify as Aryans, whereas many of the American laws specify that persons having one-eighth, one-sixteenth, or "any ascertainable" Negro Blood are Negroes in the eyes of the law and subject to all restrictions governing the conduct of Negroes.stentson kennedy
