The wild November come at last beneath a veil of rain. The night wind blows its folds aside, her face is full of pain. The latest of her race, she takes the Autumn's vacant throne, She has but one short moon to live, and she must live alone.
It is more honorable to be raised to a throne than to be born to one. Fortune bestows the one, merit obtains the other.petrarch
It is with literature as with law or empire an established name is an estate in tenure, or a throne in possession.edgar allan poe
When I stand before the throne of God,I shall be judged Innocentklaus barbie
This is the day, which down the void abysm At the Earth-born’s spell yawns for Heaven’s despotism And Conquest is dragged captive through the deep: Love, from its awful throne of patient power In the wise heart, from the last giddy hour Of dread endurance, from the slippery, steep, And narrow verge of crag-like agony, springs And folds over the world its healing wings.Percy Bysshe Shelley
Treading beneath their feet all visible things, As steps that upwards to their Father's throne Lead gradual.Samuel Taylor Coleridge
This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands, This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.
The image of Eternity the throne Of the Invisible; even from out thy slime The monsters of the deep are made; each zone Obeys thee; thou goest forth, dread, fathomless, alone.lord byron
Nor second he, that rode sublime Upon the seraph-wings of ecstasy, The secrets of th'abyss to spy. He passed the flaming bounds of place and time: 370 The living throne, the sapphire-blaze, Where angels tremble, while they gaze, He saw; but blasted with excess of light, Closed his eyes in endless night.thomas gray
Wearing the white flower of a blameless life, Before a thousand peering littlenesses, In that fierce light which beats upon a throne, And blackens every blot.Tennyson
Imagine that leader of all the enemy, in that great plain of Babylon, sitting on a sort of throne of smoking flame, a horrible and terrifying sight. Watch him calling together countless devils, to despatch them into different cities till the whole world is covered, forgetting no province or locality, no class or single individual.ignatius of loyola
Down to Gehenna or up to the throne, he travels the fastest who travels alone.rudyard kipling
You can build a throne with bayonets, but it's difficult to sit on it.
Down to Gehenna or up to the throne, He travels the fastest who travels alone.rudyard kipling
It is really mortifying, sir, when a woman possessed of a common share of understanding considers the difference of education between the male and female sex, even in those families where education is attended to... Nay why should your sex wish for such a disparity in those whom they one day intend for companions and associates. Pardon me, sir, if I cannot help sometimes suspecting that this neglect arises in some measure from an ungenerous jealousy of rivals near the throne.Abigail Adams
We felt the universe wuz safe, an' God wuz on his throne.sam walter foss
Ordinary human motives will appeal in vain to the ears which have heard the tones of the heavenly music; and all the pomp of life will show poor and tawdry to the sight that has gazed on the vision of the great white throne and the crystal sea.alexander maclaren
Such was the end of Philip (II, king of Macedonia) ...He had ruled 24 years. He is known to fame as one who with but the slenderest resources to support his claim to a throne won for himself the greatest empire among the Hellenes (Greeks), while the growth of his position was not due so much to his prowess in arms as to his adroitness and cordiality in diplomacy.diodorus siculus
And how high is Christ's cross? As high as the highest heaven, and the throne of God, and the bosom of the Father that bosom out of which forever proceed all created things. Ay, as high as the highest heaven! for if you will receive it when Christ hung upon the cross, heaven came down on earth, and earth ascended into heaven.Charles Kingsley
Thence to the famous orators repair, Those ancient, whose resistless eloquence Wielded at will that fierce democratie, Shook the Arsenal, and fulmined over Greece, To Macedon, and Artaxerxes' throne.john milton
And lives to clutch the golden keys, To mould a mighty state's decrees, And shape the whisper of the throne.
The generous who is always just, and the just who is always generous, may, unannounced, approach the throne of heaven.
One T-shirted youth, trying to find an unlocked entrance so he could leave the stadium, said angrily, "I came to check it out but this is a real bummer. No one who was really God would let himself be put up on a throne like that."William R. Mackay
I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphim , each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory .” At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.
