If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, owever measured or far away.
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
Wives are young men's mistresses; companions for middle age; and old men's nurses.Francis Bacon
Those who devour usury will not stand except as stand one whom the Evil one by his touch Hath driven to madness. That is because they say: "Trade is like usury," but Allah hath permitted trade and forbidden usury. Those who after receiving direction from their Lord, desist, shall be pardoned for the past; their case is for Allah (to judge); but those who repeat (The offence) are companions of the Fire: They will abide therein (for ever).
Just occasionally you find yourself in an odd situation. You get into it bydegrees and inthemost natural way, but when you are right in the midst of it you are suddenly astonished and ask yourself how in the world it all came about. If, for example, you put to sea on a wooden raft with a parrot and five companions, it is inevitable that sooner or later you will wake up one morning out at sea, perhaps a little better rested than ordinarily, and begin to think about it.
My heart is broken by the terrible loss I have sustained in my old friends and companions and my poor soldiers. Believe me, nothing except a battle lost can be half so melancholy as a battle won.1st duke of wellington
Whene'er with haggard eyes I viewThis dungeon that I'm rotting in,I think of those companions trueWho studied with me at the U-Niversity of Göttingen.
A rotten apple injures its companions.
These blossoms, gathered in familiar paths, With dear companions now passed out of sight, Shall not be laid upon their graves. They live, Since love is deathless. Pleasure now nor pride Is theirs in mortal wise, but hallowing thoughts Will meet the offering, of so little worth , Wanting the benison death has made divine.lucy larcom
Satan had his companions, fellow devils, to admire and encourage him, but I am solitary and abhorred.'
Whene'er with haggard eyes I view This dungeon that I'm rotting in, I think of those companions true Who studied with me at the U- Niversity of Göttingen.
The sand grain is anonymous, waiting for rain and wind to sweep it away on an endless journey, to demonstrate its durability while its weaker companions fall by the way side. But it is called sand not because of what it is made of or its origins, bit because of how big it is.Michael Welland
The Srimad Bhagavatam teaches nine primary forms of bhakti , as explained by Prahlada as:(1) ?rava?a ("listening" to the scriptural stories of K???a and his companions), (2) k?rtana ("praising," usually refers to ecstatic group singing), (3) smara?a ("remembering" or fixing the mind on Vi??u), (4) p?da-sevana (rendering service), (5) arcana (worshiping an image), (6) vandana (paying homage), (7) d?sya (servitude), (8) s?khya (friendship), and (9) ?tma-nivedana (complete surrender of the self ).
He bought a Bible of the new translation, And in his life he show'd great reformation; He walkèd mannerly and talked meekly; He heard three lectures and two sermons weekly; He vow'd to shun all companions unruly, And in his speech he used no oath but "truly;" And zealously to keep the Sabbath's rest.
Worthy books Are not companions they are solitudes: We lose ourselves in them and all our cares.philip james bailey
That place that does contain My books, the best companions, is to me A glorious court, where hourly I converse With the old sages and philosophers; And sometimes, for variety, I confer With kings and emperors, and weigh their counsels.
Yet I will look upon thy face again, My own romantic Bronx , and it will be A face more pleasant than the face of men. Thy waves are old companions, I shall see A well remembered form in each old tree And hear a voice long loved in thy wild minstrelsy.
Whenever Alexander heard Philip had taken any town of importance, or won any signal victory, instead of rejoicing at it altogether, he would tell his companions that his father would anticipate everything, and leave him and them no opportunities of performing great and illustrious actions.
And those who reject Our messages and turn away from them haughtily these are the companions of the Fire; they shall abide in it.
Alexander ruled the world as his father had ruled Macedon, concentrating power in his own hands and office to his companions. In nationality the companions remained overwhelmingly Hellenic.
"companions," said he [Saturninus], "you have lost a good captain, to make of him a bad general."Michel de Montaigne
