But as the priceless treasure too frequently hides at the bottom of well, it needs some courage to dive for it, especially as he that does so will be likely to incur more scorn and obloquy for the mud and water into which he has ventured to plunge, than thanks for the jewel he procures; as like in manner, she who undertakes the cleansing of a careless bachelor's apartment will be liable to more abuse for the dust she raises than commendation for the clearance she effects.
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
Thanks to my memory, which enabled me to quote Latin and to discuss Greek and Roman civilization, it became obvious to some of my colleagues in other fields that I was interested in things outside mathematics. This lead quickly to very pleasant relationships.stanislaw ulam
Because our minds need to reduce information, we are more likely to try to squeeze a phenomenon into the Procrustean bed of a crisp and known category (amputating the unknown), rather than suspend categorization, and make it tangible. Thanks to our detections of false patterns, along with real ones, what is random will appear less random and more certain our overactive brains are more likely to impose the wrong, simplistic, narrative than no narrative at all.nassim nicholas taleb
And he took bread, gave Thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.jesus christ
Christ has given us, not only the ritual of an ordinance, but the pattern for our lives, when He took the cup, and gave Thanks. So common joys become sacraments, enjoyment becomes worship, and the cup which holds the bitter or the sweet skillfully mingled for our lives becomes the cup of blessing and salvation drank in remembrance of Him.alexander maclaren
I just want to say how much we are indebted to my dear and abiding friend, Harry Belafonte, and to all the distinguished and famous artists and entertainers who have taken the time out from their prestigious schedules to be with us here in Montgomery, Alabama, as we march on the state capital tomorrow morning. I know that our Thanks will go out to them and will abide them for years to come.harry belafonte
If you herald some turn in our fortunes, if you bring us some measure of grace Thanks, unicorn … And even if you do not, Thanks for the brightness of your company at a dark time .
One of the most devout and insular countries in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia has emerged from being an underdeveloped desert kingdom to become one of the wealthiest nations in the region Thanks to vast oil resources. But its rulers face the delicate task of responding to pressure for reform while combating a growing problem of extremist violence.
If he raises me from the dead... will you dump your girlfriend and be with me? [Elan: ...] No Thanks, then... I'll take my chances that the Afterlife... won't have any punishment worse... than not being with you.
Those who give themselves to prayer should in a special manner have always a devotion to St. Joseph; for I know not how any man can think of the Queen of the angels, during the time that she suffered so much with the Infant Jesus, without giving Thanks to St. Joseph for the services he rendered them then.
Thanks to the oval I have discovered the meaning of the horizontal and the vertical.Georges Braque
Thanks to television, for the first time the young are seeing history made before it is censored by their eldersMargaret Mead
I've watched the gold in your hair turn silver, And the sparkle in your eyes dim more each day. And the clutch of your hands getting weaker, All these things say it wasn't yesterday. So darlin', Happy Anniversary, You've made my life for me. Once again, Thanks for the memory.Roy Rogers
Of threads of palm was the carpet spun Whereon he kneels when the day is done, And the foreheads of Islam are bowed as one! To him the palm is a gift divine, Wherein all uses of man combine, House and raiment and food and wine! And, in the hour of his great release, His need of the palms shall only cease With the shroud wherein he lieth in peace. "Allah il Allah!" he sings his psalm, On the Indian Sea, by the isles of balm; "Thanks to Allah, who gives the palm!"john greenleaf whittier
You explain nothing,O poet, but Thanks to you all things become explicable.Paul Claudel
We are all our own graveyards I believe; we squat amongst the tombs of the people we were. If we're healthy, every day is a celebration, a Day of the Dead, in which we give Thanks for the lives that we lived; and if we are neurotic we brood and mourn and wish that the past was still present.clive barker
The history of the Bible text is a romance of literature, though it is a romance of which the consequences are of vital import; and Thanks to the succession of discoveries which have been made of late years, we know more about it than of the history of any other ancient book in the world.frederic g. kenyon

Dear Lord! while we adoring payOur humble Thanks to Thee,May every heart with rapture say,—"The Saviour died for me!"anne steele
If in your soil it takes, to heaven A thousand thousand Thanks be given; And say with France, it goodly goes, Where the Pantagruelion grows.françois rabelais
Outward, Thanks to the knowledge of physical laws, man could subdue (or subjugate...) nature, but inwardly, he remained a slave to it. For, when all is said and done, at what is aiming all this display (or deployment) of activity, if not to realized outward profits, to provide material pleasure (or enjoyment). It is not the first time that men sell their birth right for a dish of lentils, and thus disown (or repudiate or deny) the best of thmeselves.african spir
It is known that Judaic, Christian, and Islamic worshippers announce “amen” at the end of a prayer , supplication , expression of Thanks and praise , and even sing “Amen, Amen, Amen”. Yet few of these worshippers know that Amen was the greatest Egyptian God for over two thousand years before the birth of Jesus . Perhaps we should not fault religious leaders for their ignorance about the past because the hieroglyphic code was broken less than two hundred years ago, and Egyptologists have deciphered what was written on Egyptian tombs and temples only since the early 1900s.
* I return you many Thanks for the honour you have done me; but Europe is not to be saved by any single man. England has saved herself by her exertions, and will, as I trust, save Europe by her example.
Life is diseased, Thanks to this dehumanised piece of clockwork and mechanism, Thanks to the “impersonality” of the workman, and the false economy of the “division of labour.” The object, which is culture, is lost sight of: modern scientific activity as a means thereto simply produces barbarism.
[Buffy: I love you.] No you don't, but Thanks for saying it. Now go. I wanna see how it ends.
I must give you Thanks as well. You helped me reach the end of my journey. You've shown me there is ever hope in the skies.
Building a democracy, especially in this part of the world, which we did not know any form of democratic government, is very difficult. But we are making progress, and we are moving along, Thanks to the help of this wonderful U.S. military who have come from a far to help us and give us a chance to build a decent nation here. [...] Seriously, this is no pandering, these people have saved us from tyranny, from genocide.
