People have passed through a very dark tunnel at the end of which there was a light of freedom. Unexpectedly they passed through the prison Gates and found themselves in a square. They are now free and they don't know where to go.václav havel
If the Church would have her face shine, she must go up into the mount, and be alone with God. If she would have her courts of worship resound with eucharistic praises, she must open her eyes, and see humanity lying lame at the temple Gates, and heal it in the miraculous name of Jesus.frederic dan huntington
These European White Men, then, with civilization in their blood and in their destiny, crossed the Atlantic and set up a new civilization on a bleak and rock bound coast. It was the White Men who drove north to Alaska and west to California; the men who opened up the tropics and subdued the Arctics; the men who mastered the African Veldts; the men who peopled Australia and seized the Gates of the world at Suez, Gibraltar and Panama.ben klassen
Sweet Mercy! to the Gates of Heaven This minstrel lead, his sins forgiven; The rueful conflict, the heart riven With vain endeavour, And memory of earth's bitter leaven Effaced forever.william wordsworth
“I went to the Garden of Love, And saw what I never had seen: A chapel was built in the midst, Where I used to play on the green. And the Gates of this chapel were shut, And ‘Thou shalt not’ writ over the door, So I turned to the Garden of Love, That so many sweet flowers bore, And I saw it was filled with graves, And tomb-stones where flowers should be: And priests in black gowns were walking their rounds, And binding with briars my joys and desires.”orson scott card
Go further, and require each of them to make a contribution: you will see how many things are still missing, and you will be obliged to get the assistance of a large number of men who belong to different classes, priceless men, but to whom the Gates of the academies are nonetheless closed because of their social station. All the members of these learned societies are more than is needed for a single object of human science; all the societies together are not sufficient for a science of man in general.Denis Diderot
Thou tell'st me there is murder in mine eye; 'Tis pretty, sure, and very probable, That eyes, that are the frail'st and softest things, Who shut their coward Gates on atomies, Should be call'd tyrants, butchers, murderers!william shakespeare
The glorious Angel, who was keeping The Gates of Light, beheld her weeping; And, as he nearer drew and listen'd To her sad song, a tear-drop glisten'd Within his eyelids, like the spray From Eden's fountain, where it lies On the blue flow'r, which Bramins say Blooms nowhere but in Paradise.thomas moore
There are three Gates to Gehinam (purgatory) one of them is in Jerusalem.
I lie amid the Goldenrod, I love to see it lean and nod; I love to feel the grassy sod Whose kindly breast will hold me last, Whose patient arms will fold me fast! Fold me from sunshine and from song, Fold me from sorrow and from wrong: Through gleaming Gates of Goldenrod I'll pass into the rest of God.
Hell has three Gates – lust, anger, and greed; for your own sake, Arjuna, give up these three.
Janus am I; oldest of potentates! Forward I look and backward and below I count as god of avenues and Gates The years that through my portals come and go. I block the roads and drift the fields with snow, I chase the wild-fowl from the frozen fen; My frosts congeal the rivers in their flow, My fires light up the hearths and hearts of men.
Yet stay, heaven Gates are not so highly arch'd As princes' palaces; they that enter there, Must go upon their knees.john webster
When Christ ascended Triumphantly from star to star He left the Gates of Heaven ajar.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Alternate translation: Come brethren, if you have a mind to be ingrafted in the vine, It is a pity to see you lopped off in this manner From the stock. Reckon up the prelates in the very see of Peter; And in that order of fathers see which has succeeded which. This is the rock over which the proud Gates of hell prevail not. (A reference to Matthew 16:18.)
Thus says Yahweh to his anointed, to Cyrus, whom he has taken by his right hand to subdue nations before him and strip the loins of kings, to force gateways before him that their Gates be closed no more: I will go before you levelling the heights. I will shatter the bronze gateways, smash the iron bars. I will give you the hidden treasures, the secret hoards, that you may know that I am Yahweh.
