Upon your shattered ruins whereThis vine will flourish still, as rare,As fresh, as fragrant as of old.Love will not crumble.
They shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig-tree.
Although the mainstream media has avoided any mention of this rumor, Mr. Beck has quite a task ahead of him. Shutting down one web site is like trying to eradicate Pueraria lobata the dreaded Kudzu vine that is eating the South.
Faith is the vital artery of the soul. When we begin to believe, we begin to love. Faith grafts the soul into Christ, as the scion into the stock, and fetches all its nutriment from the blessed vine.richard watson
A vine bears three grapes, the first of pleasure, the second of drunkenness, and the third of repentanceanacharsis
Of all trees, I observe God hath chosen the vine, a low plant that creeps upon the helpful wall; of all beasts, the soft and patient lamb; of all fowls, the mild and guileless dove. Christ is the rose of the field, and the lily of the valley. When God appeared to Moses, it was not in the lofty cedar nor the sturdy oak nor the spreading palm; but in a bush, a humble, slender, abject shrub; as if He would, by these elections, check the conceited arrogance of man.owen feltham
Fill every beaker up, my men, pour forth the cheering wine:There’s life and strength in every drop,—thanksgiving to the vine!albert gorton greene
Remember, you are not a tree, that can live or stand alone. You are only a branch. And it is only while you abide in Christ, as the branch in the vine, that you will flourish or even live.robert murray m'cheyne
That is faith, cleaving to Christ, twining round Him with all the tendrils of our heart, as the vine does round its support.alexander maclaren
We have ceased to be a nation under law but instead a homeland where the withered Bill of Rights, like a dead trumpet vine, clings to our pseudo-Roman columns.gore vidal
Grape on the vine... why not be crushed to make wine?MewithoutYou
The castled crag of Drachenfels, Frowns o'er the wide and winding Rhine, Whose breast of waters broadly swells Between the banks which bear the vine, And hills all rich with blossom'd trees, And fields which promise corn and wine, And scatter'd cities crowning these, Whose far white walls along them shine.lord byron
O Love, what hours were thine and mine, In lands of palm and southern pine; In lands of palm, of orange-blossom, Of olive, aloe, and maize, and vine.
Heed not the night; a summer lodge amid the wild is mine 'Tis shadowed by the tulip-tree, 'tis mantled by the vine.william cullen bryant
For happily the government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens, in giving it on all occasions their effectual support…. May the children of the Stock of Abraham, who dwell in this land, continue to merit and enjoy the good will of the other inhabitants, while every one shall sit in safety under his own vine and fig-tree, and there shall be none to make him afraid.
Old religious factions are volcanoes burned out; on the lava and ashes and squalid scoriae of old eruptions, grow the peaceful olive, the cheering vine, and the sustaining corn.
Of all trees , I observe God hath chosen the vine, a low plant that creeps upon the helpful wall; of all beasts, the soft and patient lamb; of all fowls, the mild and guileless dove . Christ is the rose of the field, and the lily of the valley. When God appeared to Moses , it was not in the lofty cedar nor the sturdy oak nor the spreading palm; but in a bush, a humble, slender, abject shrub; as if He would, by these elections, check the conceited arrogance of man.

Come, thou monarch of the vine, Plumpy Bacchus with pink eyne!
As preachers we are to promote Christian culture, by bringing the dead branches to the living vine, that, grafted into it, without a rag of hum1.n righteousness between, the life of Him may enter them; and by keeping them, as far as teaching and example can do it, abiding in Him, that they may bring forth fruit.john hall
The act of the soul, in surrendering itself into the hands of Christ, forms a connecting bond between Him as the vine and the soul as the branches, which communicates life, strength, nourishment, and beauty. In a word, with a just view of the character, and a supreme attachment to the person of Christ, the believer yields himself into His hands as a full and complete Saviour. Him he receives; upon Him he rests, and rests for time and eternity.gardiner spring
