O lyric Love, half angel and half bird; And all a wonder and a wild desire, Boldest of hearts that ever braved the sun, Took sanctuary within the holier blue, And sang a kindred soul out to his face, Yet human at the red-ripe of the heart; When the first summons from the darkling earth Reached thee amid thy chambers, blanched their blue, And bared them of the glory to drop down, To toil for man, to suffer or to die, This is the same voice: can thy soul know change? Hail then, and hearken from the realms of help!
An ideological movement is a collection of people many of whom could hardly bake a cake, fix a car, sustain a friendship or a marriage, or even do a quadratic equation, yet they believe they know how to rule the world. The university, in which it is possible to combine theoretical pretension with comprehensive ineptitude, has become the natural habitat of the ideological enthusiast. A kind of adventure playground, carefully insulated from reality in order to prevent absent-minded professors from bumping into things as they explore transcendental realms, has become the institutional base for civilizational self-hatred.kenneth minogue
Whatever his private behavior, the man and his work existed in different realms. Mencken's defects were commonplace; his virtues were not. So wonderfully uninhibited was his style that even a single sentence in a routine article proclaimed its begetter.
Money brings honor, friends, conquest, and realms.john milton
Ye holyangels bright, Who wait at God's right hand, Or through the realms of light Flyat your Lord's command, Assist our song, Or else the theme too high doth seem For mortal tongue.
Organic life beneath the shoreless wavesWas born and nurs'd in ocean's pearly caves;First forms minute, unseen by spheric glass,Move on the mud, or pierce the watery mass;These, as successive generations bloom,New powers acquire and larger limbs assume;Whence countless groups of vegetation spring,And breathing realms of fin and feet and wing.erasmus darwin
By having simplified what is known, physicists have been led into realms which as yet are anything but simple. That at some time, they, too, will appear as simple consequences of a theory of which no one has yet dreamed is not a statement of fact.It is a statement of faith.Edward Teller
The ills and disorders of the 14th century could not be without consequence. Times were to grow worse over the next fifty-odd years until at some imperceptible moment, by the some mysterious chemistry, energies were refreshed, ideas broke out of the mold of the Middle Ages into new realms, and humanity found itself redirected.barbara tuchman
To sum up: numbers appear to represent both an attribute of matter and the unconscious foundation of our mental process. For this reason, number forms, according to Jung, that particular element that unites the realms of matter and psyche. It is “real” in a double sense, as an archetypal image and as a qualitative manifestation in the realm of outer-world experience.marie-louise von franz
Hell is wherever Love is not, and HeavenIs Love's location. No dogmatic creed,No austere faith based on ignoble fearCan lead thee into realms of joy and peace.Unless the humblest creatures on the earthAre bettered by thy loving sympathyThink not to find a Paradise beyond.ella wheeler wilcox
The daimonic refers to the power of nature rather than the superego, and is beyond good and evil. Nor is it man's 'recall to himself' as Heidegger and later Fromm have argued, for its source lies in those realms where the self is rooted in natural forces which go beyond the self and are felt as the grasp of fate upon us. The daimonic arises from the ground of being rather than the self as such.rollo may
Much have I travelled in the realms of gold for which I thank the Paddington and Westminster Public Libraries.peter porter
Sense of wrongs forget to treasure Brethren, live in perfect love! In the starry realms above, God will mete as we may measure.friedrich von schiller
Alas! they had been friends in youth; But whispering tongues can poison truth, And constancy lives in realms above; And life is thorny, and youth is vain; And to be wrothe with one we love Doth work like madness in the brain.Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Here, thou, great Anna! whom three realms obey, Dost sometimes counsel take and sometimes tea.Alexander Pope
The Channel is that silver strip of sea which severs merry England from the tardy realms of Europe.
The Narakas are the realms of suffering that equate to the Christian hell or, more accurately, to purgatory . If a person is born into one of these realms as a result of bad karma , this is not a permanent punishment - he or she may well be reborn into one of the higher worlds in the next life . Watched over by Yama , judge of the world, the Narakas are not only physical places but also states of consciousness – and symbols of the suffering that can take place during life, as well as after death .
Alternate translation: Two gates the silent courts of sleep adorn, That of pale ivory, this of lucid horn. Through this, true visions take their airy way, Through that, false phantoms mount the realms of day. Book VII If Heav'n thou can'st not bend, Hell thou shalt move.
A wonderful stream is the river of Time As it runs through the realms of tears, With a faultless rhythm and musical rhyme, And a broader sweep and a surge sublime, And blends with the ocean of years.
