Brightest and best of the sons of the morning,Dawn on our darkness, and lend us thine aid.Star of the east the horizon adorning,Guide where our infant Redeemer is laid.
Like to Diana in her summer-weed, Girt with a crimson robe of brightest dye, Goes fair Samela; Whiter than be the flocks that straggling feed When wash'd by Arethusa Fount they lie, Is fair Samela.Robert Greene
Love is the greatest light, the brightest torch, and will always be the greatest instrument of change.jennifer beals
I must say that though other days may not be so bright, as we look toward the future, that the brightest days will continue to be those we spent with you here in Ireland.john f. kennedy
Times of great calamity and confusion have been productive for the greatest minds. The purest ore is produced from the hottest furnace . The brightest thunder-bolt is elicited from the darkest storm .
By the dew drop of Celestine dawn though saw a dream Like a shining star of the Milky Way, I rest on the stream Thy circular flow is constant rhythm of my fight Your ancient stone is timeless flora of thy sight Fortunate to behold the lord of the world so near You never know when and how you are his dear Divinity all over from sand lowest to peak highest Faith in the tinkling bells never moved slightest As essence of his kingdom’s innermost purity Blessed to worship the brightest in darkest sanctuary.
Brian had a special relationship with the audience — he broke through in a way few others do. They had come to trust him as a voice of calm — whether reporting on momentous events of history, or the grand state events. For more than 30 years, it was that quality above all others that distinguished Brian as one of the BBC's brightest and best.brian hanrahan
None without hope e'er lov'd the brightest fair,But love can hope where reason would despair.lyttelton, george, 1st baron
Times of great calamity and confusion have been productive for the greatest minds. The purest ore is produced from the hottest furnace. The brightest thunder-bolt is elicited from the darkest storm.
The world would be astonished if it knew how great a proportion of its brightest ornaments of those most distinguished even in popular estimation for wisdom and virtue are complete sceptics in religion.john stuart mill
Today a new faith is awakening the Myth of the blood; the belief that to defend the blood is also to defend the divine nature of man in general. It is a belief, effulgent with the brightest knowledge, that Nordic blood represents that mystery which has overcome and replaced the older sacraments.alfred rosenberg
I feel my belief in sacrifice and struggle getting stronger. I despise the kind of existence that clings to the miserly trifles of comfort and self-interest. I think that a man should not live beyond the age when he begins to deteriorate, when the flame that lighted the brightest moment of his life has weakened.
Abstruse and mystic thoughts you must express With painful care, but seeming easiness; For truth shines brightest thro' the plainest dress.Wentworth Dillon
Is not old wine wholesomest, old pippins toothsomest, old wood burn brightest, old linen wash whitest? Old soldiers, sweethearts, are surest, and old lovers are soundest.
All that's bright must fade, The brightest still the fleetest; All that's sweet was made But to be lost when sweetest.thomas moore
From that high mount of God whence light and shade Spring both, the face of brightest heaven had changed To grateful twilight.john milton
The choice was mine, and mine completely. / I could have any prize that I desired. / I could burn with the splendor of the brightest fire, / Or else... or else I could choose time. / Remember, I was very young then, / And a year was forever and a day. / So what use could fifty, sixty, seventy be? / I saw the lights and I was on my way. / And how I lived, how they shone, / But how soon the lights were gone.
I despise the kind of existence that clings to the miserly trifles of comfort and self-interest. I think that a man should not live beyond the age when he begins to deteriorate , when the flame that lighted the brightest movement of his life has weakened.
brightest and best of the sons of the morning! Dawn on our darkness and lend usThine aid!Reginald Heber
