But you, my lord and venerable pope, you who take the place of Christ, and the successor to the supreme shepherd in apostolic dignity, do not through sloth allow this pestilence to grow, do not by conniving and dissimulation loosen the reins on this raging impurity. This disease is spreading like a cancer, and its poisonous breed will reach out endlessly unless its evil growth is cut off by the scythe of the gospel.
Father of Peace, and God of love! We ownThy power to save, That power by which our Shepherd rose Victorious o'er the grave.Philip Doddridge
Poor shepherdless sheep! it was His delight, as the Good Shepherd, to lead them to rich pastures; and as they sat and stood around Him, they forgot their bodily wants in the beauty and power of His words.john cunningham geikie
As a result of its generous stand [Robert Maynard Hutchins’ controversial policy of admitting students after their second year of high-school], the University of Chicago’s undergraduate college acts as the greatest magnet for neurotic juveniles since the Children’s Crusade, with Robert Maynard Hutchins…playing the role of Stephen the Shepherd Boy.a. j. liebling
Poor shepherdless sheep! it was His delight, as the Good Shepherd, to lead them to rich pastures; and as they sat and stood around Him, they forgot their bodily wants in the beauty and power of His words.
Fair and fair, and twice so fair, As fair as any may be; The fairest Shepherd on our green, A love for any lady.George Peele
Now, blessings light on him that first invented this same sleep! It covers a man all over, thoughts and all, like a cloak; it is meat for the hungry, drink for the thirsty, heat for the cold, and cold for the hot. It is the current coin that purchases all the pleasures of the world cheap, and the balance that sets the king and the Shepherd, the fool and the wise man, even.Miguel de Cervantes
The only gift is a portion of thyself. ... Therefore the poet brings his poem; the Shepherd, his lamb; the farmer, corn; the miner, a gem; the sailor, coral and shells; the painter, his picture; the girl, a handkerchief of her own sewing."ralph waldo emerson
The Inquisitor is the forgiving father, the scientific materialist, and the social engineer. He is the most compassionate, and honest, of politicians; he takes on great burdens of responsibility in order to protect his subjects from ethical doubt. But he also suppresses any attempt to expand their self-consciousness: he is the ‘great simplifier’, the Shepherd to a flock of carefree children.john carroll
This is the weather the Shepherd shuns, And so do I.thomas hardy
The human being is not the lord of beings, but the Shepherd of Being.Martin Heidegger
An easy Shepherd makes the wolf void wool.
A wolf makes a living by using his legs, a Shepherd by his stick.
The sheep feel sad when a wolf is the Shepherd.
A bear is not subservient to a dog, a pig in an orchard is not a garden, a wolf is not a Shepherd of sheep; a person who is stupid and deaf is a poor judge.
And every Shepherd tells his tale Under the hawthorn in the dale.john milton
The metaphor of the king as the Shepherd of his people goes back to ancient Egypt. Perhaps the use of this particular convention is due to the fact that, being stupid, affectionate, gregarious and easily stampeded, the societies formed by sheep are most like human ones.
“When the Son of man arrives in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit down on his glorious throne. And all the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another, just as a Shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will put the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on his left.
It goes much against my stomach. Hast any philosophy in thee, Shepherd?
Without tradition, art is a flock of sheep without a Shepherd. Without innovation, it is a corpse.winston churchill
