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.
In a coign of the cliff between lowland and highland, At the sea-down's edge between windward and lee, Walled round with rocks as an inland island, The ghost of a garden fronts the sea.algernon charles swinburne
I have broken the machine and touched the ghost of matter.ernest rutherford
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 have a liking old For thee, though manifold Stories, I know, are told Not to thy credit; How one (or two at most) Drops make a cat a ghost Useless, except to roast Doctors have said it: How they who use fusees All grow by slow degrees Brainless as chimpanzees, Meagre as lizards; Go mad, and beat their wives; Plunge (after shocking lives) Razors and carving knives Into their gizzards.charles stuart calverley
I long to talk with some old lover's ghost, Who died before the god of love was born.john donne
Our good friend LeRoi Moore passed on and gave up his ghost today, and we will miss him forever.dave matthews
Great Pompey's shade complains that we are slow, And Scipio's ghost walks unavenged amongst us!joseph addison
There needs no ghost, my lord, come from the grave. To tell us this.william shakespeare
Don't turn your back upon your doctrinal doubts and difficulties. Go up to them and examine them. Perhaps the ghastly object which looks to you in the twilight like a sheeted ghost may prove to be no more than a table-cloth hanging upon a hedge.
I never saw a useful Christian who was not a student of the Bible. If a man neglects his Bible, he may pray and ask God to use him in His work; but God cannot make much use of him, for there is not much for the Holy ghost to work upon.dwight l. moody
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
This time, ghost of Sparta, I will have your head!
Die, ghost of Sparta!
A Corpse or a ghost … I'd sooner be one or t'other, square and fair, than a ghost in a Corpse, which is my feelins at present.
