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. The disastrous repetition of the family pattern could be described as the psychological original sin, or as the Curse of the Atrides running through the generations.carl jung
There is a Curse on this house.theodore roosevelt
Curse on the man who business first designed,And by't enthralled a freeborn lover's mind!john oldham
My Curse upon your whunstane hearts, Ye Enbrugh Gentry! The tythe o' what ye waste at cartes Wad stow'd his pantry!Robert Burns
I see America as a black Curse upon the world. I see a long night settling in and that mushroom which has poisoned the world withering at the roots.
Work is the Curse of the drinking classes.
The eyes of all America are upon us, as we play our part in posterity will bless or Curse us.henry knox
The one enemy in the world that America has is England. But then, England is the great land of Christian civilization, and it may not be a thing to be much wondered at that our Americans whom we send to represent us in London become in a short time somewhat civilized, and learn to love those who hate them, bless those that Curse them, and do good to those that persecute and calumniate them.jeremiah o'donovan rossa
Inscribe all human effort with one word,Artistry’s haunting Curse, the Incomplete!
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
I do here in the most solemn and bitter manner Curse the Prime Minister of England for having cumulated all his other betrayals of the national interest and honour, by his last terrible exhibition of dishonour, weakness and gullibility. The depths of infamy which our accurst "love of peace" can lower us are unfathomable.enoch powell
Our love of lockstep is our greatest Curse, the source of all that bedevils us. It is the source of homophobia, xenophobia, racism, sexism, terrorism, bigotry of every variety and hue, because it tells us there is one right way to do things, to look, to behave, to feel, when the only right way is to feel your heart hammering inside you and to listen to what its timpani is saying.Anna Quindlen
Follow, poet, follow right To the bottom of the night, With your unconstraining voice Still persuade us to rejoice; With the farming of a verse Make a vineyard of the Curse, Sing of human unsuccess In a rapture of distress; In the deserts of the heart Let the healing fountains start, In the prison of his days Teach the free man how to praise.
Don't ever let anybody teach you to think , Lance: it is the Curse of the world.
Let us be thankful to Adam our benefactor. He cut us out of the 'blessing' of idleness and won for us the 'Curse' of labor.mark twain
