But I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray fro them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.
" Love your enemies, Bless those who curse you, that ye may be the sons of your Heavenly Father, who makes the sun to shine on the good and on the evil , and the rain to fall on the just and unjust." How monstrous a calumny have not impostors dared to advance against the mild and gentle author of this just sentiment, and against the whole tenor of his doctrines and his life, overflowing with benevolence and forbearance and compassion !Percy Bysshe Shelley
When thou cuttest down thine harvest in thy field, and hast forgot a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch it: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow: that the Lord thy God may Bless thee in all the work of thine hands.Bible (Old Testament)
It is they who glorify, who shall enjoy Him; they who deny themselves, who shall not be denied; they who labor on earth, who shall rest in heaven; they who bear the cross, who shall wear the crown; they who seek to Bless others, who shall be blessed.thomas guthrie
We praise Him, we Bless Him, we adore Him, we glorify Him, and we wonder who is that baritone across the aisle and that pretty woman on our right who smells of apple blossoms. Our bowels stir and our cod itches and we amend our prayers for the spiritual life with the hope that it will not be too spiritual.john cheever
Then Bless thy secret growth, nor catch At noise, but thrive unseen and dumb; Keep clean, be as fruit, earn life, and watch Till the white-wing'd reapers come.Henry Vaughan
Thee, bold Longinus! all the Nine inspire, And Bless their Critick with a Poet's Fire. An ardent Judge, who Zealous in his Trust, With Warmth gives Sentence, yet is always Just; Whose own Example strengthens all his Laws, And Is himself that great Sublime he draws.
Bless me and the maze I'm in!Hello, thingy spirit.theodore roethke
Mama may have, papa may have, But God Bless the child that's got his own! That's got his own.Billie Holiday
Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun; Conspiring with him how to load and Bless With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eaves run.john keats
By fairy hands their knell is rung;By forms unseen their dirge is sung;There Honour comes, a pilgrim gray,To Bless the turf that wraps their clay;And Freedom shall awhile repair,To dwell a weeping hermit there!william collins
Who saves his country, saves himself, saves all things, and all things saved do Bless him! Who lets his country die, lets all things die, dies himself ignobly, and all things dying curse him!
When you get into a tight place, and everything goes against you till it seems as if you could n't hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that 's just the place and time that the tide 'll turn. Never trust to prayer without using every means in your power, and never use the means without trusting in prayer. Get your evidences of grace by pressing forward to the mark, and not by groping with a lantern after the boundary-lines, — and so, boys, go, and God Bless you!"harriet beecher stowe
Fortune, that with malicious joy Does man her slave oppress, Proud of her office to destroy, Is seldom pleas'd to Bless.john dryden
My dear, be a good man be virtuous be religious be a good man. Nothing else will give you any comfort when you come to lie here. ...God Bless you all.walter scott
Pax vobiscum will answer all queries. If you go or come, eat or drink, Bless or ban, Pax vobiscum carries you through it all. It is as useful to a friar as a broom-stick to a witch, or a wand to a conjuror.walter scott
It is they who glorify, who shall enjoy Him; they who deny themselves, who shall not be denied; they who labor on earth, who shall rest in heaven; they who bear the cross, who shall wear the crown; they who seek to Bless others, who shall be blessed.
Then will he who goes under Bless himself for being one who goes over and beyond; and the sun of his knowledge will stand at high noon for him. " Dead are all gods : now we want the overman to live" on that great noon, let this be our last will.
Then Bless thy secret growth, nor catch At noise, but thrive unseen and dumb; Keep clean, be as fruit, earn life, and watch, Till the white-winged reapers come.Henry Vaughan
...and the best philosophy , to do one's duties, take the world as it comes, submit respectfully to one's lot, Bless the goodness that has given us so much happiness with it, whatever it is, and despise affectation .
