Pardon me boy is that the Chattanooga Choo-choo, Track twenty nine, Boy you can give mea shine.
Feware qualified to shine in company; but it is in most men's power to be agreeable.jonathan swift
For what accords better and more aptly with faith than to acknowledge ourselves divested of all virtue that we may be clothed by God, devoid of all goodness that we may be filled by him, the slaves of sin that he may give us freedom, blind that he may enlighten, lame that he may cure, and feeble that he may sustain us; to strip ourselves of all ground of glorying that he alone may shine forth glorious, and we be glorified in him?john calvin
People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.elisabeth kübler-ross
The year 1967 gave us the feeling of the one-ness of Canada, until it was rudely jolted by de Gaulle and his insensate call for a "free" Quebec. That visit robbed the Centennial year of its high shine and made the people of the other nine provinces aware as never before of the crisis of Confederation.judy lamarsh
Heaven above is softer blueEarth around is sweeter green;Something lives in every hueChristless eyes have never seenBirds with gladder songs o'erflowFlowers with deeper beauties shine. Since I know, as now I know, I am His, and He is mine.
When thou dost shine, darkness looks white and fair, Forms turn to musick, clouds to smiles and air; Rain gently spends his honey-drops, and pours Balm on the cleft earth, milk on grass and flowers. Bright pledge of peace and sun-shine! the sure tye Of thy Lord's hand, the object of his eye. When I behold thee, though my light be dim, Distant, and low, I can in thine see Him Who looks upon thee from his glorious throne, And mindes the covenant 'twixt all and One.Henry Vaughan
Continuous as the stars that shine And twinkle on the milky way.william wordsworth
If there are words and wrongs like knives, whose deep inflicted lacerations never heal - cutting injuries and insults of serrated and poison-dripping edge - so, too, there are consolations of tone too fine for the ear not fondly and for ever to retain their echo: caressing kindnesses - loved, lingered over through a whole life, recalled with unfaded tenderness, and answering the call with undimmed shine, out of that raven cloud foreshadowing Death himself.charlotte brontë
He made an instrument to know If the moon shine at full or no.
Great things thro' greatest hazards are achiev'd, And then they shine.
Galen , in the third section of his book, "The Use of the Limbs," says correctly that it would be in vain to expect to see living beings formed of the blood of menstruous women and the semen virile, who will not die, will never feel pain, or will move perpetually, or shine like the sun. This dictum of Galen is part of the following more general proposition: Whatever is formed of matter receives the most perfect form possible in that species of matter; in each individual case the defects are in accordance with that individual matter.maimonides
When the sad sun sinks, It shall pierce through the body of wax till it shrinks! No sunset, but the red awakening Of the last day concluding everything Struggles so sadly that time disappears, The redness of apocalypse, whose tears Fall on the child, exiled to her own proud Heart, as the swan makes its plumage a shroud For its eyes, the old swan, and is carried away From the plumage of grief to the eternal highway Of its hopes, where it looks on the diamonds divine Of a moribund star, which never more shall shine!stéphane mallarmé
Spirit of BEAUTY, that dost consecrate With thine own hues all thou dost shine upon Of human thought or form, where art thou gone? Why dost thou pass away and leave our state, This dim vast vale of tears, vacant and desolate? Ask why the sunlight not for ever Weaves rainbows o'er yon mountain-river, Why aught should fail and fade that once is shown, Why fear and dream and death and birth Cast on the daylight of this earth Such gloom, why man has such a scope For love and hate, despondency and hope?Percy Bysshe Shelley
Bright as the sun her eyes the gazers strike, And, like the sun, they shine on all alike.Alexander Pope
The primal duties shine aloft, like stars : The charities that soothe, and heal, and bless Are scattered at the feet of Man, like flowers.william wordsworth
An age is called Dark not because the light fails to shine, but because people refuse to see it.
Creator Venus, genial power of love, The bliss of men below, and gods above! Beneath the sliding sun thou runn'st thy race, Dost fairest shine, and best become thy place; For thee the winds their eastern blasts forbear, Thy mouth reveals the spring, and opens all the year; Thee, goddess, thee, the storms of winter fly, Earth smiles with flowers renewing, laughs the sky.john dryden
No coward soul is mine, No trembler in the world 's storm -troubled sphere: I see Heaven's glories shine, And Faith shines equal, arming me from Fear .
But remember, that manners must adorn knowledge , and smooth its way through the world . Like a great rough diamond, it may do very well in a closet, by way of curiosity , and also for its intrinsic value; but it will never be worn nor shine, if it is not polished.
And thy deep eyes, amid the gloom, shine like jewels in a shroud.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
