An open foe may prove a curse, but a pretended friend is worse.
There must be something solemn, serious, and tender about any attitude which we denominate religious. If glad, it must not grin or snicker; if sad, it must not scream or Curse. It is precisely as being solemn experiences that I wish to interest you in religious experiences.
Round and round the circle Completing the charm So the knot be unknotted The cross be uncrossed The crooked be made straight And the Curse be ended.
" 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
Not that I don't think irreverent humor and someone being filthy is funny, I just do what I do. Any comedian would admit throwing an f-bomb in there would help get a reaction. ... I'm not on a Puritanical pursuit, but when I would Curse in a joke, I believe I'm not done writing it.jim gaffigan
Every father is given the opportunity to corrupt his daughter's nature, and the educator, husband, or psychiatrist then has to face the music. For what has been spoiled by the father can only be made good by a father, just as what has been spoiled by the mother can only be repaired by a mother.

[W]ith the release of the sixth (and hopefully final) movie to bear the Halloween moniker, we see how far the mighty have fallen. ... In the final analysis, The Curse of Michael Myers is a horrific motion picture just not in the way the film makers intended - Directed By Joe Chappelle.james berardinelli

In twenty years' time, the German people will Curse the parties who now boast of having made the Revolution.erich ludendorff
Such taxes [upon the necessaries of life], when they have grown up to a certain height, are a Curse equal to the barrenness of the earth and the inclemency of the heavens; and yet it is in the richest and most industrious countries that they have been most generally imposed. No other countries could support so great a disorder.Adam Smith
As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the Curse causeless shall not come.
He who must be what he is, may Curse his fate, but cannot change it; on the other hand, he who can transform himself has no one in the world but himself to blame for his failings, no one but himself to hold responsible for his dissatisfaction.stanisław lem
Her (India’s) great Curse is caste; but English education has already proved a tremendous power in levelling the injurious distinctions of caste.keshub chunder sen
The Curse of the middle-aged man was knowing or believing that he'd told all he had to tell. Soon as you suspect that, you started wanting something, anything, to prove it wasn't so: and that's where the mistakes started, when the bad things happened.michael marshall smith
She would rather light a candle than Curse the darkness.
Blessings star forth forever; but a Curse is like a cloud, it passes.philip james bailey
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that Curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country , and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee: And I will make of thee a great nation , and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and Curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
