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!
Your ghost will walk, you lover of trees, (If love remains) In an English lane.Robert Browning
Science fiction is no more written for scientists than ghost stories are written for ghosts.brian aldiss
The morning slips away in a Valium haze and catalogues,And numerous cups of coffee,In the afternoon the weekly food is put in bags - as you float off down the high street.The shop windows reflect, play a nameless host to a closet ghost -A picture of your fantasy, a victim of your misery...paul weller
And ever since then, when the clock strikes two, She walks unbidden from room to room, And the air is filled that she passes through With a subtle, sad perfume. The delicate odor of mignonette, The ghost of a dead and gone bouquet, Is all that tells of her story—yet Could she think of a sweeter way?bret harte
Without you ghost ferries would cross the Mersey manned by skeleton crewsadrian henri
I drug your ghost across the country, and we plotted out my death. Every city and memory we whispered "Here is where you rest." Well I was determined in Chicago but I dug my teeth into my knees And I settled for a telephone, sang into your machine: "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine."conor oberst
The study of mathematics is apt to commence in disappointment... We are told that by its aid the stars are weighed and the billions of molecules in a drop of water are counted. Yet, like the ghost of Hamlet's father, this great science eludes the efforts of our mental weapons to grasp it.Alfred North Whitehead
Digression is the soul of wit. Take the philosophic asides away from Dante, Milton or Hamlet's father's ghost and what stays is dry bones.ray bradbury
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.
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
The Hyla breed That shouted in the mist a month ago, Like ghost of sleigh-bells in a ghost of snow.robert frost
I would rather be a ghost, drifting by your side as a condemned soul, than enter heaven without you. Because of your love, I will never be a lonely spirit.
From earth's wide bounds, from ocean's farthest coast, Through gates of pearl streams in the countless host, Singing to Father, Son, and Holy ghost, Alleluia!William Walsham How
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow, Praise Him, all creatures here below, Praise Him above, ye heavenly host, Praise Father, Son, and Holy ghost.thomas ken
His interviewing self is, or was, an extra person, like the Holy ghost, generated by self-contemplation.wilfrid sheed
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.tertullian
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
The Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God , and the Communion of the Holy ghost, be with you all. Amen.
So frequent was this Hebrew in the mouth of Our Saviour that it pleased the Holy ghost to have it perpetuated in the Church of God.
It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. (Matthew 12:31–32) (KJV).

"Business!" cried the ghost, wringing its hands again. "Mankind was my business. The common welfare was my business; charity, mercy, forbearance, and benevolence were all my business. The dealings of my trade were but a drop of water in the comprehensive ocean of my business!"
