I ran home [from Cloud's Rest to Yosemite Valley] in the moonlight, with long, firm strides; for the sun-love made me strong. Down through the junipers down through the firs; now in jet-shadows, now in white light; over sandy moraines and bare, clanking rock; past the huge ghost of South Dome, rising weird through the firs past glorious Nevada past the groves of Illilouette through the pines of the valley; frost-crystals flashing all the sky beneath, as star-crystals on all the sky above. All of this mountain-bread for one day!
Paper is poverty,... it is only the ghost of money, and not money itself.thomas jefferson
Amar es combatir, es abrir puertas, dejar de ser fantasma con un n u mero a perpetua cadena condenado por un amo sin rostro.
To love is to battle, to open doors, to cease to be a ghost with a number forever in chains, forever condemned by a faceless master.
Do not let your TODAY be stolen by the ghost of yesterday or the "To-Do" list of tomorrow!steve maraboli
If, after I depart this vale, you ever remember me and have thought to please my ghost, forgive some sinner and wink your eye at some homely girl.h. l. mencken
If I asked her master he'd give me a cask a day; But she, with the beer at hand, not a gill would arrange! May she marry a ghost and bear him a kitten, and may The High King of Glory permit her to get the mange.james stephens
We worship unity in trinity, and trinity in unity; neither confounding the person nor dividing the substance. There is one person of the Father, another of the Son, and another of the Holy ghost; but the Godhead of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy ghost, is all one; the glory equal, the majesty co-eternal.
Science fiction is no more written for scientists than ghost stories are written for ghosts.BrianWilson Aldiss
Contemporary philosophers have exercised themselves with the problem of our knowledge of other minds. Enmeshed in the dogma of the ghost in the machine, they have found it impossible to discover any logically satisfactory evidence warranting one person in believing that there exist minds other than his own. I can witness what your body does, but I cannot witness what your mind does, and my pretensions to infer from what your body does to what your mind does all collapse, since the premises for such inferences are either inadequate or unknowable.Gilbert Ryle
I long to talk with some old lover's ghost, Who died before the god of love was born.john donne
When the ghost comes round at midnight Well you both can have some fun He can drive you mad, he can make you sad He can keep you from the sun When they take him down, he'll be both safe and sound And the hand does fit the glove And no matter what they tell you, There's good and evil in everyone.van morrison
There needs no ghost, my lord, come from the grave. To tell us this.william shakespeare
What beck'ning ghost along the moonlight shade Invites my steps, and points to yonder glade?Alexander Pope
For after the rain when with never a stain The pavilion of Heaven is bare, And the winds and sunbeams with their convex gleams Build up the blue dome of air, I silently laugh at my own cenotaph, And out of the caverns of rain, Like a child from the womb, like a ghost from the tomb, I arise and unbuild it again.Percy Bysshe Shelley
I firmly believe that the moment our hearts are emptied of pride and selfishness and ambition and self-seeking and every thing that is contrary to God's law, the Holy ghost will come and fill every corner of our hearts; but if we are full of pride and conceit and ambition and self-seeking and pleasure and the world, there is no room for the Spirit of God; and I believe many a man is praying to God to fill him when he is full already with something else.dwight l. moody
His interviewing self is, or was, an extra person, like the Holy ghost, generated by self-contemplation.wilfrid sheed
I thank God that I have got this old book; but I thank him more for the gift of the Holy ghost. I have got the oldest book in the world; but I have got the oldest book in my heart, even the gift of the Holy ghost. I have all the four Testaments.smith, joseph, jr.
I believe that He was made man, joining the human nature with the divine in one person; being conceived by the singular operation of the Holy ghost, and born of the blessed Virgin Mary, who, as well after as before she brought Him forth, continued a pure and unspotted virgin.john wesley
Die, ghost of Sparta!
Humility, what is it? It is a gracious gift of the Holy ghost. It is the same disposition which the Psalmist called a " broken heart," and that consciousness of need which Jesus had in view when He said, "Blessed are the poor in spirit." So far as it has respect to God, it is that docility which is willing to learn what God teaches; that conscious penury, which is willing to accept whatever God proffers; that submission which is willing to do what God desires, and to endure whatever God deems needful.
