Grace is beauty in motion, or rather Grace regulates the air, the attitudes and movements of beauty.
His motions all accompanied with Grace; And paradise was opened in his face.john dryden
``I only met Simone last year and it was like meeeting Sarah Vaughan or Dinah Washington. She has a very strong identity, she sings with a lot of passion and Grace.´´simone bittencourt de oliveira
Libraries are reservoirs of strength, Grace, and wit, reminders of order, calm, and continuity, lakes of mental energy, neither warm nor cold, light nor dark. The pleasure they give is steady, unorgastic, reliable, deep, and long-lasting. In any library in the world, I am at home, unselfconscious, still, and absorbed.Germaine Greer
There is nothing more profoundly serious than real comedy, which is an affirmation of human communion, redemption and Grace.michael malone

Give us Grace and strength to forbear and to persevere. Give us courage and gaiety and the quiet mind, spare to us our friends, soften to us our enemies.Robert Louis Stevenson
There is a great deal too much in the world, of the "heavenly-mindedness" which expends itself in the contemplation of the joys of paradise, which performs no duty which it can shirk, and whose constant prayer is to be lifted in some overwhelming flood of Divine Grace, and be carried, amidst the admiration of men and the jubilance of angels, to the very throne of God.henry clay trumbull
No spring, nor summer beauty hath such Grace, As I have seen in one autumnal face.john donne
If you have nothing of the spirit of prayer, nothing of the love of the brotherhood, nothing of mortifying the spirit of the world, nothing of growth in Grace, of cordial, habitual, persevering obedience to the Divine commands, how can it be that you have been brought nigh by the blood of Christ?gardiner spring

Not one of Flora's brilliant race A form more perfect can display; Art could not feign more simple Grace Nor Nature take a line away.james montgomery
I summarize more than 30 years of research on factors that can create a "perfect storm " which leads good people to engage in evil actions . This transformation of human character is what I call the "Lucifer Effect," named after God 's favorite angel , Lucifer , who fell from Grace and ultimately became Satan . Rather than providing a religious analysis, however, I offer a psychological account of how ordinary people sometimes turn evil and commit unspeakable acts.
By our sinful falls the powers of the soul are weakened; the strength of Grace is decayed; our evidences for heaven are blotted; fears and doubts in the soul are raised (will God once more pardon this scarlet sin, and show mercy to this wretched soul?); the corruptions in the heart are more advantaged and confirmed; and the conscience of a man after falls is the more enraged or the more benumbed.
True humility is a Christian Grace and one of the fruits of the Spirit, originating in a deep consciousness of sin past and present, and leading us to discover our nothingness in the view of God, our insufficiency for any thing that is good, and prompting us, as we feel our infirmities, to strive after higher and yet higher attainments.
