In the beginning, said a Persian poet, Allah took a rose, a lily, a dove, a serpent, a little honey, a Dead Sea apple, and a handful of clay. When he looked at the amalgam it was a woman.William Sharp, in the Portfolio (July, 1894), p. 6.
O ye men, whoever amongst you worshipped Muhammad , let him know that Muhammad is Dead, and whoever amongst you worshipped Allah , let him know that Allah is Living , there is no death for Him.Abu Bakr's speach after Muhammad's death; Bukhari, Vol. 2, Chapter Manaqibe Abu Bakr; zitiert in: Dawat-ul-Amir, English translation: Invitation to Ahmadiyyat, First Edition, pg. 17-21, by Mirza Basheer-ud-Din Mahmood Ahmad
Anyway , the Evil Dead movies are great, and I have to sayWho: "Bad Phelous" (Phelan Porteus)
A wind sways in the pines, And below Not a breath of wild air; Still as the mosses that glow On the flooring and over the lines Of the roots here and there. The pine tree drops its Dead; Theyare quiet, as under the sea. Overhead, overhead Rushes life in a race, As the clouds the clouds chase; And we go, And we drop like the fruits of the tree, Even we, Even so.George Meredith
The seal is set.Now welcome, thou dread power! Nameless, yet thus omnipotent, which here Walk'st in the shadow of the midnight hour With a deep awe, yet all distinct from fear; Thy haunts are ever where the Dead walls rear Their ivy mantles, and the solemn scene Derives from thee a sense so deep and clear That we become a part of what has been, And grow unto the spot, all-seeing but unseen.Rochdale
Whoever in his public services is handcuffed and shackled by the vice of consistency will be a man not free to act as various questions come before him from time to time; he will be a statesman locked in a prison house, keys to which are in the keeping of days and events that are Dead. Let me quote Emerson: 'A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen.'henry fountain ashurst
My philosophy of life is that the meek shall inherit nothing but debasement, frustration and ignoble deaths; that there is security in personal strength; that you can fight City Hall and win; that any action is better than no action, even if it's the wrong action; that you never reach glory or self-fulfillment unless you're willing to risk everything, dare anything, put yourself Dead on the line every time; and that once one becomes strong or rich or potent or powerful it is the responsibility of the strong to help the weak become strong.harlan ellison
Tradition means giving votes to the most obscure of all classes, our ancestors. It is the democracy of the Dead. Tradition refuses to submit to the small and arrogant oligarchy of those who merely happen to be walking about.G. K. Chesterton, in “The Ethics of Elfland,” Orthodoxy (1908), p. 85
