Our headstrong passions shut the door of our souls against God.
Such souls, Whose sudden visitations daze the world, Vanish like lightning, but they leave behind A voice that in the distance far away wakens the slumbering ages.henry taylor
The glad circle round them yield their souls To festive mirth, and wit that knows no gall.james thomson
Winds, storms, tempests, thunders, lightnings, raging flames, dissolving elements, the archangel's trump smiting the silence of the tomb, the universal air blazing with disastrous splendors, "the tribes of the earth mourning and beating their breasts," the wicked calling on rocks and hills to fall upon them and cover them, the shouts of the saved, the howlings of the damned all, all will then utter one voice, all will pierce our very souls with their tones; all will repeat these words, "God alone is great, and God's salvation alone deserved the cares, toils, sacrifices of an immortal spirit."
The souls most fed with Shakespeare's flame Still sat unconquered in a ring, Remembering him like anything.
Only great souls know the grandeur there is in charity.jacques-bénigne bossuet
O golden Silence, bid our souls be still,And on the foolish fretting of our careLay thy soft touch of healing unaware!julia caroline dorr
He sows June fields with clover, and the worldBroadcasts with little common kindnesses.The plain good souls He sends us, who fulfillLife's homely duties in the daily pathWith cheerful heart, ambitious of no moreThan to supply the wants of friend and kin,Yet serve God's higher love to human hearts;Giving a secret sweetness to the home,The hidden fragrance of a kindly heart,The simple beauty of a useful life,That never dazzles, and that never tires.samuel longfellow
As we go star-stilled in the mystic garden,All the prose of this life run there to rhyme,How eagerly then will the poor heart pardonAll of these hurts of Time!Ah, yes, in that hour of our souls dream-driven,In that high, white hour, O my wild sea-bride,The tears and the years will be all forgiven, ...And all be justified.edwin markham
Would that we two were lying Beneath the churchyard sod, With our limbs at rest in the green earth's breast, And our souls at home with God.Charles Kingsley
The gods of the Disc have never bothered much about judging the souls of the dead, and so people only go to hell if that's where they believe, in their deepest heart, that they deserve to go. Which they won't do if they don't know about it. This explains why it is so important to shoot missionaries on sight.terry pratchett
souls of Poets dead and gone What Elysium have ye known, Happy field or mossy cavern, Choicer than the Mermaid Tavern?john keats
Alle kr a« ftige Menschen lieben das Leben All great, powerful souls love life.Heinrich Heine
[Girls] study under the paralyzing idea that their acquirements cannot be brought into practical use. They may subserve the purposes of promoting individual domestic pleasure and social enjoyment in conversation, but what are they in comparison with the grand stimulation of independence and self- reliance, of the capability of contributing to the comfort and happiness of those whom they love as their own souls?sarah grimké
God should be the object of all our desires, the end of all our actions, the principle of all our affections, and the governing power of our whole souls.jean baptiste massillon
Corporations have neither bodies to be punished, nor souls to be condemned; they therefore do as they like.thurlow, edward, 1st baron thurlow
Above all, we must forgive the unhappy souls who have elected to make the pilgrimage on foot, who skirt the shore and look uncomprehendingly upon the horror of the struggle, the joy of victory, the profound hopelessness of the vanquished.joseph conrad
Are gods more ruthless than mortals? Have they no mercy for youth? no love for the souls who have loved them?Charles Kingsley
O, I have suffer'd With those that I saw suffer: a brave vessel, Who had, no doubt, some noble creature in her, Dash'd all to pieces. O, the cry did knock Against my very heart! Poor souls, they perished.william shakespeare
We should profane the service of the dead, To sing a requiem and such rest to her As to peace-parted souls.
Four sweet lips, two pure souls, and one undying affection, these are love's pretty ingredients for a kiss.
As the flowers follow the sun, and silently hold up their petals to be tinted and enlarged by its shining, so must we, if we would know the joy of God, hold our souls, wills, hearts, and minds, still before Him, whose voice commands, whose love warns, whose truth makes fair our whole being.' God speaks for the most part in such silence only. If the soul be full of tumult and jangling voices, His voice is little likely to be heard.
They [John and Jesus] were both alive while still in the womb. Elizabeth rejoiced as the infant leaped in her womb; Mary glorifies the Lord because Christ within inspired her. Each mother recognizes her child and is known by her child who is alive, being not merely souls but also spirits.
Some souls just understand each other upon meeting.N.R. Hart
