Trees are the earth's endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.
The law isn't perfect. Neither are the people who've created it. But it's been made with the endless effort to do good.
Nor second he, that rode sublime Upon the seraph-wings of ecstasy, The secrets of th'abyss to spy. He passed the flaming bounds of place and time: 370 The living throne, the sapphire-blaze, Where angels tremble, while they gaze, He saw; but blasted with excess of light, Closed his eyes in endless night.thomas gray
There is no gilding of setting sun or glamor of poetry to light up the ferocious and endless toil of the farmers' wives.(Hannibal) Hamlin Garland
On the geometric level, we see certain physical elements repeated endlessly, combined in an almost endless variety of combinations... It is puzzling to realize that the elements, which seem like elementary building blocks, keep varying, and are different every time that they occur .... If the elements are different every time that they occur, evidently then, it cannot be the elements themselves which are repeating in a building or town; these so-called elements cannot be the ultimate "atomic" constituents of space.christopher alexander
I believe the term ‘serial killer’ is highly misleading, in that it implicitly suggests to the general public that murder is the paramount object or motivating urge in the mind of the killer ... They naturally attribute this motivation partly because they value human life above all else, and partly because, as their endless fascination with the subject suggests, they have a vague conception of murder as being somehow mystical, highly dramatic, or even a nebulously romantic experience, replete with unimaginable connotations of eroticism. And guilt for it must be paid for in full.ian brady
The process of creative discovery is endless. That’s why “holiness” tends to limit mental vitality and progress by freezing a given work (a life guide) in time, no matter how interpretations differ and even change over the years.tarik gunersel
Life everywhere is in vast and endless variety. So it is with life eternal, that gift of God, constituting, in its length and breadth and height and depth, the reward of the righteous. The penitent, dying thief is not going into heaven like the triumphant, dying Paul.herrick johnson
What is that sound high in the air Murmur of maternal lamentation Who are those hooded hordes swarming Over endless plains, stumbling in cracked earth Ringed by the flat horizon only What is the city over the mountains Cracks and reforms and bursts in the violet air Falling towers Jerusalem Athens Alexandria Vienna London UnrealT. S. Eliot
There is at least a punky spark in my heart and it may blaze in this autumn gold, fanned by the King. Some of my grandfathers must have been born on a muirland for there is heather in me, and tinctures of bog juices, that send me to Cassiope, and oozing through all my veins impel me unhaltingly through endless glacier meadows, seemingly the deeper and danker the better.john muir
The expansion (i.e. projection) and the contraction (i.e. dissolution ) of the universe are called lila (the divine sport) in Hindu scriptures. In this divine play, the One becomes many and the many return into the One in endless rhythmic fashion.
Love rests on no foundation. It is an endless ocean, with no beginning or end.
His English reminds me of tattered washing on the line?of stale bean-soup, of college yells, of dogs barking idiotically through endless nights. It is so bad that a sort of grandeur creeps into it. 566
The sufferings and death of Jesus Christ are a substitution for the endless punishment of all who truly believe on Him.nehemiah adams
The sea with an end can be Greek or Roman:the endless sea is Portuguese.fernando pessoa
There were endless possibilities, not out of reach.john maynard keynes
We go down with the bells ringing in all the sunken cities. Forgotten, we are greeted by the embassies of the dead, While your endless flowing carries us on and on; And neither is nor was. The moment only, eternal.czesław miłosz
Death is an endless night so awful to contemplate that it can make us love life and value it with such passion that it may be the ultimate cause of all joy and all art.paul theroux
It is a union with a Higher Good by love , that alone is endless perfection . The only sufficient object for man must be something that adds to and perfects his nature , to which he must be united in love; somewhat higher than himself, yea, the highest of all , the Father of spirits . That alone completes a spirit and blesses it, to love Him, the spring of spirits.
I owe my complete restoration to a discovery I made while being treated at that particular very expensive sanatorium . I discovered there was an endless source of robust enjoyment in trifling with psychiatrists: cunningly leading them on;...
If man had his way, the plan of redemption would be an endless and bloody conflict. In reality, salvation was bought not by Jesus ' fist, but by His nail-pierced hands; not by muscle but by love; not by vengeance but by forgiveness ; not by force but by sacrifice . Jesus Christ our Lord surrendered in order that He might win ; He destroyed His enemies by dying for them and conquered death by allowing death to conquer Him.
selected by IP 18.104.22.168 2005 The writer is delegated to declare and to celebrate man's proven capacity for greatness of heart and spirit for gallantry in defeat for courage, compassion and love. In the endless war against weakness and despair, these are the bright rally-flags of hope and of emulation. I hold that a writer who does not passionately believe in the perfectibility of man, has no dedication nor any membership in literature. ~ John Steinbeck (born 27 February 1902)
