For a tear is an intellectual thing,And a sigh is the sword of an Angel King,And the bitter groan of the martyr's woeIs an arrow from the Almighty's bow.
The bow was made in England, Of true wood, of yew wood, The wood of English bows.Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free, 'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,And when we find ourselves in the place just right, 'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.When true simplicity is gain'd To bow and to bend we shan't be asham'd,To turn, turn will be our delight 'Till by turning, turning we come round right.
We bow our heads in respect for those Soviet women who displayed exceptional courage in the severe time of war. Never before but during the days of the war the grandeur of spirit and the invincible will of our Soviet women, their selfless dedication, loyalty and affection to their Homeland, their boundless persistence in work and their heroism on the front manifested themselves with such strength.leonid brezhnev
For nature beats in perfect tune, And rounds with rhyme her every rune, Whether she work in land or sea, Or hide underground her alchemy. Thou canst not wave thy staff in air, Or dip thy paddle in the lake, But it carves the bow of beauty there, And the ripples in rhymes the oar forsake.ralph waldo emerson
Let others hail the rising sun, I bow to that whose course is run.David Garrick
So I take my life as I find it, as a life full of grand advantages that are linked indissolubly to my noblest happiness and my everlasting safety. I believe that Infinite Love ordained it, and that, if I bow willingly, tractably, and gladly to its discipline, my Father will take care of it.josiah gilbert holland
There are, certainly, differing degrees of devotion among Moon's followers; the fact that they bow at the right moment or shout "Mansei!" in unison doesn't mean they believe everything Moon says, or do precisely what he commands. Even on important issues, like Moon's claiming to be the messiah, there are church members whom I met, including a close aide to Moon, who demur. A religious leader whom they respect and whose theology they believe, yes; the messiah, perhaps not.sun myung moon
Thy fatal shafts unerring move,I bow before thine altar, Love!tobias smollett
In the days when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those that look out of the windows be darkened, I know one boy who won't be sweating. I intend to raise my coffin-lid briskly, throw a few things into an overnight bag, and, whistling something appropriate, prepare to meet my Maker.alan coren
Terrorists bow to the spontaneity of the passionate indignation of intellectuals, who lack the ability or opportunity to connect the revolutionary struggle and the working-class movement into an integral whole. It is difficult indeed for those who have lost their belief, or who have never believed, that this is possible, to find some outlet for their indignation and revolutionary energy other than terror.
Broken by it, I, too, may be; bow to it I never will. The probability that we may fall in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just; it shall not deter me.Abraham Lincoln
Having well polished the whole bow, he added a golden tip.
What care if the day Be turned to gray, What care if the night come soon! We may choose the pace Who bow for grace, At the Inn of the Silver Moon.
A compliment is usually accompanied with a bow, as it to beg pardon for paying it.
He that will win his dame must do As love does when he draws his bow; With one hand thrust the lady from, And with the other pull her home.
The arrow belongs not to the archer when it has once left the bow; the word no longer belongs to the speaker when it has once passed his lips, especially when it has been multiplied by the press.Heinrich Heine
From love's weak childish bow she lives unharmed.
So as you may see in Daniel and his companions, that would rather choose to burn, and be cast to the lions than they would bow to the idol which Nebuchadnezzar had set up. When this 'slight offense', in the world's account, and a hot fiery furnace stood in competition, that they must either fall into sin, or be cast into the fiery furnace such was their tenderness of the honor and glory of God, and their hatred and indignation against sin, that they would rather burn than sin!Thomas Brooks
'Tis true no lover has that pow'r T' enforce a desperate amour, As he that has two strings t' his bow, And burns for love and money too.
At summer eve, when Heaven's ethereal bow Spans with bright arch the glittering hills below, Why to yon mountain turns the musing eye, Whose sunbright summit mingles with the sky? Why do those cliffs of shadowy tint appear More sweet than all the landscape smiling near? 'Tis distance lends enchantment to the view, And robes the mountain in its azure hue.thomas campbell
Fill your mind with Me, be My devotee, sacrifice unto Me, bow down to Me; thus having made thy heart steadfast in Me, taking Me as the Supreme Goal, thou shalt come to Me.
I think I'm a natural-born leader. I know how to bow down to authority if it's authority that I respect.Tupac Shakur
