In contrast with the simplicity and sublimity of Genesis I, we find all ancient cosmogonies, whether it be the Babylonian or the Phœnician, the Greek or the Roman, alike unrelievedly wild, cruel, even foul.
Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where Nature may heal and cheer and give strength to body and soul alike.john muir
Whether a man goes down with a law bullet in a vital part or is wearied out as is the fish before being landed, where he may gasp his life out; whether he dies with one convulsion after a swallow of prussic acid or dreamily passes away in the solace of an opium overdraught, is perhaps no matter in the end. In the processes there is a vast difference, but the tombstones the reports of that Court which has the last say read very much alike. The figure is, perhaps, not a bad one.
alike were they free from Fear, that reigns with the tyrant, and envy, the vice of republics. Neither locks had they to their doors, nor bars to their windows; But their dwellings were open as day and the hearts of their owners; There the richest was poor, and the poorest lived in abundance.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
No farther seek his merits to disclose, Or draw his frailties from their dread abode, (There they alike in trembling hope repose) The bosom of his Father and his God.thomas gray

Thy praise or dispraise is to me alike; One doth not stroke me, nor the other strike.Ben Jonson
The necessity for power is obvious, because life cannot be lived without order; but the allocation of power is arbitrary because all men are alike, or very nearly. Yet power must not seem to be arbitrarily allocated, because it will not then be recognized as power. Therefore prestige, which is illusion, is of the very essence of power.Simone Weil
The idea of preaching the gospel to all nations alike, regardless of nationality, of internal divisions as to rank and color, complexion and religion, constituted the beginning of a new era in history. You cannot preach the gospel in its purity over the world, without proclaiming the doctrine of civil and religious liberty, without overthrowing the barriers reared between nations and clans and classes of men, without ultimately undermining the thrones of despots, and breaking off the shackles of slavery, without making men everywhere free.
...located at an elevation of about 390m. ...the walled wall city is in the northeast of Jaipur, while the new parts spread to south and west. Heir to a rich intellectual heritage, Jaipurians, Hindu and Muslim men alike have bright Rajput turbans and swashbuckling mustaches while the women wear colourful saris.
'Tis with our judgments as our watches, none Go just alike, yet each believes his own.Alexander Pope

I predict that Anonymous and entities like it will become far more significant over the next few years than is expected by most of our similarly irrelevant pundits and this will, no doubt, turn out to be just as much of an understatement as anything else that has been written on the subject. … This is the future , whether one approves or not, and the failure on the part of governments and media alike to understand , and contend with the rapid change now afoot, ought to remind everyone concerned why it is that this movement is necessary in the first place.
Reciter and listener of the Qur'an are alike in prize and reward.ali ibn abi talib

Henryson's greatness is most plainly to be seen in the range of general principles and ideas which informs his poetry and which allows it to encompass tragedy and comedy alike. He is the most Shakespearian of the early Scottish poets.Robert Henryson
The rain fell alike upon the just and upon the unjust, and for nothing was there a why and a wherefore.Somerset Maugham

I have already related to you great and admirable things; but, if you might be induced to adventure upon the hazard of believing some other divinity of this sacred Pantagruelion, I very willingly would tell it you. Believe it, if you will, or otherwise, believe it not, I care not which of them you do, they are both alike to me. It shall be sufficient for my purpose to have told you the truth, and the truth I will tell you.françois rabelais
By problemitizing and forbidding hijab , a favorite fetish of Muslim fundamentalists and the Western press alike, the French government has forced a reaction from those forces that includes sworn proclamations that the head scarf is a mandatory religious duty for women, and that banning the scarf is tantamount to interfering with the fundamental practice of Islam itself.
Every man, noble and simple alike, should hold his land as a pledge of god behaviour. His duties, to King, lord, and neighbour, should be settled once and for all; and, if he failed in them, he should be turned out of his home and left to starve. It was a drastic scheme; but a conqueror holding a conquered country by the force of the sword cannot afford to be squeamish.
