This bread and wine are the simple but eloquent monument to the infinite love of the Son of God, around which we gather with tender, tearful gratitude, because He loved us'so, and because we know that our garlands of affection and consecration are pleasing to Him.
I dreamed a place where I have come to dwell Cold Mountain says it all Monkeys scream, the valley fog is cold My door blends with the color of the peaks I gather leaves and thatch a hut among the pines Dig a pond and lead a trickle from the brook Long ago I left the world behind Eating ferns I pass the years in peacehanshan
The groves were God's first temples. Ere man learned To hew the shaft, and lay the architrave, And spread the roof above them, ere he framed The lofty vault, to gather and roll back The sound of anthems; in the darkling wood, Amidst the cool and silence, he knelt down And offered to the Mightiest solemn thanks And supplication.william cullen bryant
If you go down in the woods today You're sure of a big surprise If you down in the woods today You'd better go in disguise. For every Bear that ever there was Will gather there for certain because, Today's the day theTeddy Bears have their Picnic.
If you shut up truth and bury it under the ground, it will but grow, and gather to itself such explosive power that the day it bursts through it will blow up everything in its way.Émile zola
Any prairie farm can have a library of prairie plants, for they are drouth-proof and fire-proof, and are content with any roadside, rocky knoll, or sandy hillside not needed for cow or plow. Unlike books, which divulge their meaning only when you dig for it, the prairie plants yearly repeat their story, in technicolor, from the first pale blooms of pasque in April to the wine-red plumes of bluestem in the fall. All but the blind may read, and gather from the reading new lessons in the meaning of America.aldo leopold
The entrepreneur is the person who seeks to identify what consumers, at home or abroad or both, want and would be willing to buy at a profitable price. These entrepreneurs are the job-creators because it is they who gather the men and women, the material, the machinery, and the money to turn the vision of a market into a reality.
The clouds that gather round the setting sun Do take a sober coloring from an eye That hath kept watch o'er man's mortality.william wordsworth
One must let the play happen to one; one must let the mind loose to respond as it will, to receive impressions, to sense rather than know, to gather rather than immediately understand.edward albee
No matter how much experience we may gather in life, we can never in life get the dimension of experience that the imagination gives us. Only the arts and sciences can do that, and of these, only literature gives us the whole sweep and range of human imagination as it sees itself.Northrop Frye
It is easier to destroy knowledge, Ignosi, than to gather it.h. rider haggard
The growth of New England was a result of the aggregate efforts of a busy multitude, each in his narrow circle toiling for himself, to gather competence or wealth. The expansion of New France was the achievement of a gigantic ambition striving to grasp a continent. It was a vain attempt.francis parkman

And sometimes when the night is slow The wretched and the meek We gather up our hearts and go A Thousand Kisses Deep.leonard cohen
"George Bush calls his biggest fundraisers Rangers and Pioneers. We gather here today and we call ourselves simply Americans."howard dean
When action grows unprofitable, gather information; when information grows unprofitable, sleep.ursula k. le guin
The stone that is rolling, can gather no moss.thomas tusser
He heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them.
Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
The good Husbandman may pluck His rose & gather in His lily.
Therefore fear not to assay To gather, ye that may, The flower that this day Is fresher than the next.thomas wyatt
If you refuse to eat an embryonic life form on the grounds that it ends the life of an animal then you might as well join the loonies who gather on N. Charles street to compare abortion to the Holocaust.
gather a shell from the strewn beachAnd listen at its lips: they sighThe same desire and mystery,The echo of the whole sea's speech.Dante Gabriel Rossetti
