Showing off is the fool's idea of glory.
When I survey the wondrous cross On which the prince of Glory died, My richest gain I count but loss, And pour contempt on all my pride.Isaac Watts
However strong or beautiful this body may be, its culmination is in those three pounds of ashes. And still people are so attached to it. Glory be to God.sarada devi
O lyric Love, half angel and half bird; And all a wonder and a wild desire, Boldest of hearts that ever braved the sun, Took sanctuary within the holier blue, And sang a kindred soul out to his face, Yet human at the red-ripe of the heart; When the first summons from the darkling earth Reached thee amid thy chambers, blanched their blue, And bared them of the Glory to drop down, To toil for man, to suffer or to die, This is the same voice: can thy soul know change? Hail then, and hearken from the realms of help!Robert Browning
The rich philistinism emanating from advertisements is due not to their exaggerating (or inventing) the Glory of this or that serviceable article but to suggesting that the acme of human happiness is purchasable and that its purchase somehow ennobles the purchaser.vladimir nabokov
Lafayette valued reputation and Glory, but cared little for the power that generally results from them. Having one day been asked who was in his opinion the greatest man of this age: "In my idea," replied he, "General Washington is the greatest man, for I look upon him as the most virtuous."lafayette, gilbert du motier, marquis de
Every child saved with my help and the help of all the wonderful secret messengers, who today are no longer living, is the justification of my existence on this earth, and not a title to Glory.irena sendler
Don't think, feel ....it is like a finger pointing a way to the moon. Don't concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly Glory!bruce lee
My philosophy of life is that the meek shall inherit nothing but debasement, frustration and ignoble deaths; that there is security in personal strength; that you can fight City Hall and win; that any action is better than no action, even if it's the wrong action; that you never reach Glory or self-fulfillment unless you're willing to risk everything, dare anything, put yourself dead on the line every time; and that once one becomes strong or rich or potent or powerful it is the responsibility of the strong to help the weak become strong.harlan ellison
Napoleon’s troops fought in bright fields, where every helmet caught some gleams of Glory; but the British soldier conquered under the cool shade of aristocracy. No honours awaited his daring, no despatch gave his name to the applauses of his countrymen; his life of danger and hardship was uncheered by hope, his death unnoticed.
Real Glory Springs from the silent conquest of ourselves; and without that the conqueror is nought but the first slave.
"Thou wert not, Solomon! in all thy Glory Array'd," the lilies cry, "in robes like ours; How vain your grandeur! Ah, how transitory Are human flowers!"horace smith
So distinguished by a Divine wisdom, power, and goodness, are God's works of creation and providence, that all nature, by the gentle voices of her skies and streams, of her fields and forests, as well as by the roar of breakers, the crash of thunder, the rumbling earthquake, the fiery volcano, and the destroying hurricane, echoes the closing sentences of this angel hymn, Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, the whole earth is full of His Glory!
I stood inVenice, on the Bridge of Sighs; A palace and a prison on each hand: I saw from out the wave her structures rise As from the stroke of the enchanter's wand: A thousand years their cloudy wings expand Around me, and a dying Glory smiles O'er the far times, when manya subject land Look'd to the winged Lion's marble piles, WhereVenice sate in state, thron'd on her hundred isles!Rochdale
Quam cito transit gloria mundi. How quickly the Glory of the world passes.
By common consent grey hairs are a crown of Glory; the only object of respect that can never excite envy.george bancroft
All that happens in the world of Nature or Man, — every war; every peace; every hour of prosperity; every hour of adversity; every election; every death ; every life; every success and every failure, — all change, — all permanence, — the perished leaf; the unutterable Glory of stars, — all things speak truth to the thoughtful spirit.rufus choate
Teamwork is what the Green Bay Packers were all about. They didn't do it for individual Glory. They did it because they loved one another.vince lombardi
Relying on the atonement which Christ has made, and desiring to be saved in no other way, I commit myself into Thy hands, O God, my Father! Take me, and do with me as Thou seest to be for Thy Glory. I consecrate myself forever to Thy service, and trust for acceptance in the merits of Thy Son.samuel i. prime
No pain, no palm; no thorns, no throne; no gall, no Glory; no cross, no crown.william penn
To suffer woes which Hope thinks infinite; To forgive wrongs darker than Death or Night; To defy Power, which seems Omnipotent; To love, and bear; to hope, till Hope creates From its own wreck the thing it contemplates; Neither to change nor falter nor repent; This, like thy Glory, Titan! is to be Good, great and joyous, beautiful and free; This is alone Life; Joy, Empire, and Victory!Percy Bysshe Shelley
There are some sordid minds, formed of slime and filth, to whom interest and gain are what Glory and virtue are to superior souls; they feel no other pleasure but to acquire money.jean de la bruyère
O Dormer, how can I behold thy fate, And not the wonders of thy youth relate; How can I see the gay, the brave, the young, Fall in the cloud of war, and lie unsung! In joys of conquest he resigns his breath, And, filled with England's Glory, smiles in death.joseph addison
And the supreme Glory of all this, my love, is to think that maybe this isn't true, neither may I believe it true. And when lying starts giving us pleasure, let's speak the truth so that we lie to it.
E quando a mentira comece a dar-nos prazer, falemos a verdade para lhe mentirmos.
All of us who served in one war or another know very well that all wars are the Glory and the agony of the young.
