Love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave.
Cruel he looks, but calm and strong, Like one who does, not suffers wrong.Percy Bysshe Shelley
Love isstrong as death; jealousy is Cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned.Bible (Old Testament)
Gilbert had a baddish streak or two in him; and one in particular whichwas not only baddish but so thoroughly caddish that no critic can ignore or, in my view, extenuate it. The man, to summarize, was essentially Cruel, and delighted in cruelty.
What man that sees the ever-whirling wheel Of Change, the which all mortal things doth sway, But that thereby doth find, and plainly feel, How mutability in them doth play Her Cruel sports, to many men's decay?Edmund Spenser
That this House is appalled, but barely surprised, at the revelations in M15 files regarding the bizarre and inhumane proposals to use pigeons as flying bombs; recognises the important and live-saving role of carrier pigeons in two world wars and wonders at the lack of gratitude towards these gentle creatures; and believes that humans represent the most obscene, perverted, Cruel, uncivilised and lethal species ever to inhabit the planet and looks forward to the day when the inevitable asteroid slams into the earth and wipes them out thus giving nature the opportunity to start again.lord stratford
In a Cruel irony, speculators - rather then elected politicians - are the shots on crisis management. In an absurd logic, those who foster financial turbulence have been invited by the G7 Finance ministers to identify policies which attenuate financial turbulence.michel chossudovsky
It is Cruel to discover one's mediocrity only when it is too late.

Surely you do not imagine that we shall be victorious without applying the most Cruel revolutionary terror?
Oh the long and dreary Winter! Oh the cold and Cruel Winter!Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
We shall be remembered in history as the most Cruel, and therefore the most unwise, generation of men that ever yet troubled the earth: the most Cruel in proportion to their sensibility, the most unwise in proportion to their science. No people, understanding pain, ever inflicted so much: no people, understanding facts, ever acted on them so little.john ruskin
Cult leaders succeed in dominating their followers because they have mastered the Cruel art of exploiting universal human dependency and attachment needs in others.
Holy shadows of the dead, I'm not to blame for your Cruel and bitter fate, but the accursed rivalry which brought sister nations and brother people, to fight one another. I do not feel happy for this victory of mine. On the contrary, I would be glad, brothers, if I had all of you standing here next to me, since we are united by the same language, the same blood and the same visions.
"Nude" is about an relationship I was in during that period and there is a joyful beginning and creepy end … yeah life can be Cruel, but god dammit how I love to write when my life is miserable.
It is the law of life that if you are kind to someone you feel happy. If you are Cruel you are unhappy. And if you hurt someone, you will be hurt back.
He who the sword of heaven will bear Should be as holy as severe, Pattern in himself to know, Grace to stand, and virtue go; More nor less to others paying Than by self-offenses weighing Shame to him, whose Cruel striking Kills for faults of his own liking!william shakespeare
Hubbard kept adding steps, each more costly, for his followers to climb. In the 1960s the guru decreed that humans are made of clusters of spirits (or "thetans") who were banished to earth some 75 million years ago by a Cruel galactic ruler named Xenu. Naturally, those thetans had to be audited.
Follow thy drum; With man's blood paint the ground, gules, gules; Religious canons, civil laws are Cruel; Then what should war be?
Note too that a faithful study of the liberal arts humanizes character and permits it not to be Cruel.
The flow of time is always Cruel... its speed seems different for each person, but no one can change it... A thing that does not change with time is a memory of younger days...
