It is remarkable that whilst the Doctors of the Sorbonne were urging Francis the First absolutely to suppress printing even as late as 1533 and whilst this enlightened monarch had actually issued letters-patent January 3 1535 prohibiting under pain of death any person to print any book or books, and ordering all booksellers' shops to be closed under the same penalty, the Jews should have hailed with delight this invention as a Divine gift and sung its praises because it enabled them to multiply and circulate the word of God.
How melancholy a thing is success. Whilst failure inspirits a man, attainment reads the sad prosy lesson that all our glories "Are shadows, not substantial things." Truly said the sayer, "disappointment is the salt of life" a salutary bitter which strengthens the mind for fresh exertion, and gives a double value to the prize.sir richard francis burton
As the moon's fair image quaketh in the raging waves of ocean. Whilst she, in the vault of heaven, moves with silent peaceful motion.Heinrich Heine
Allah, the Exalted, gave the angels intellect without desires, He gave the animals desires without intellect, and He gave both to the sons of Adam. So a man whose intellect prevails over his desires is better than the angels, Whilst a man whose desire prevails over his intellect is worse than the animals.ali ibn abi talib
Allah, the Exalted, gave the angels intellect without desires, He gave the animals desires without intellect, and He gave both to the sons of Adam. So a man whose intellect prevails over his desires is better than the angels, Whilst a man whose desire prevails over his intellect is worse than the animals.
Whilst you are proclaiming peace and good will to men, emancipating all nations, you insist upon retaining an absolute power over wives. But you must remember that arbitrary power is like most other things which are very hard, very liable to be broken — and notwithstanding all your wise laws and maxims we have it in our power not only to free ourselves but to subdue our masters, and without violence throw both your natural and legal authority at our feet.Abigail Adams
Whilst that for which all virtue now is sold, And almost every vice almighty gold.Ben Jonson
Let the air strike our tune, Whilst we show reverence to yond peeping moon.thomas middleton
Oft did I wonder why the setting sun Should look upon us with a blushing face: Is't not for shame of what he hath seen done, Whilst in our hemisphere he ran his race?lyman heath
Whilst the exploits of the conqueror and the intrigues of the demagogue are faithfully preserved through a succession of ages, the persevering and unobtrusive efforts of genius , developing the best blessings of the Deity to man, are often consigned to oblivion.
I know not what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, Whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.
For there is no friend like a sister in calm or stormy weather, to cheer one on the tedious way, to fetch one if one goes astray, to lift one if one totters down, to strengthen Whilst one stands.christina rossetti
I can see that the Lady has a genius for ruling, Whilst I have a genius for not being ruled.jane welsh carlyle
A living man must have a living God, or his soul will perish in the midst of earthly plenty, and will thirst and die Whilst the water of earthly delights is running all around him. We are made to need persons not things.alexander maclaren
"With a Socialist government, there will not be a national surplus Whilst there continues to be inequality."josé luis rodríguez zapatero
I have often been surprised that Mathematics, the quintessence of Truth, should have found admirers so few and so languid. Frequent consideration and minute scrutiny have at length unravelled the cause: viz . that though Reason is feasted, Imagination is starved; Whilst Reason is luxuriating in its proper Paradise, Imagination is wearily travelling on a dreary desert.Samuel Taylor Coleridge
The kingdom of music is not the kingdom of this world; it will accept those whom breeding and intellect and culture have alike rejected. The commonplace person begins to play, and shoots into the empyrean without effort, Whilst we look up, marvelling how he has escaped us, and thinking how we could worship him and love him, would he but transalate his visions into human words, and his experiences into human actions.e. m. forster
Women are not angels. They are as foolish as men in many ways; but they have had to devote themselves to life Whilst men have had to devote themselves to death; and that makes a vital difference in male and female religion. Women have been forced to fear Whilst men have been forced to dare: the heroism of a woman is to nurse and protect life, and of a man to destroy it and court death.George Bernard Shaw
A man may beat down the bitter fruit from an evil tree until he is weary; Whilst the root abides in strength and vigor, the beating down the present fruit will not hinder it from bringing forth more.
Go, go to your business, I say, pleasure, Whilst I go to my pleasure, business.
I mentioned to one of the gaolers my sense of this hardship, as an obstinate guilty person might deny the truth, Whilst an innocent one, less courageous, might very readily, to relieve himself from such a state of misery, make a false confession. His answer was laconic: "Lago confess" ... "They soon confess."
The gradient of the western slopes of Mount Kenya is very slight, Whilst on the east it is so gentle as to be almost imperceptible, so that there the masses of snow extend far southwards, and give the impression of a grand and lofty glacier-covered plateau. ~ Count Teleki
I saw a smith stand with his hammer, thus, The Whilst his iron did on the anvil cool.william shakespeare
