Who sees not, that whosoever ministers to the poor, ministers to God? as it appears in that solemn sentence of the last day, Inasmuch as you did feed, clothe, lodge the poor, you did it unto me.
Does capital punishment tend to the security of the people? By no means. It hardens the hearts of men, and makes the loss of life appear light to them; and it renders life insecure, Inasmuch as the law holds out that property is of greater value than life.Elizabeth Fry
Wert thou to open the heart of a single soul by helping him to embrace the Cause of Him Whom God shall make manifest, thine inmost being would be filled with the inspirations of that august Name. It devolveth upon you, therefore, to perform this task in the Days of Resurrection, Inasmuch as most people are helpless, and wert thou to open their hearts and dispel their doubts, they would gain admittance into the Faith of God.báb
Variant translations: Inasmuch as love grows in you, in so much beauty grows; for love is itself the beauty of the soul.
The name of Christ is used here instead of the Church, because the similitude was intended to apply—not to God's only-begotten Son, but to us. It is a passage that is full of choice consolation, Inasmuch as he calls the Church Christ; for Christ confers upon us this honour —that he is willing to be esteemed and recognised, not in himself merely, but also in his members. Hence the same Apostle says elsewhere, (Eph. i. 23,) that the Church is his completion, as though he would, if separated from his members, be incomplete.john calvin
For you it is possible to do anything; the only thing impossible for you to do is to do wrong, Inasmuch as you are knowledge and justice and love.harold w. percival
Existence as entirety remains beyond any one meaning and it is the conscious presence of humanness in the world Inasmuch as this is nonmeaning, having nothing to do other than be what it is, no longer able to go beyond itself or give itself some kind of meaning through action.georges bataille
We assert then that nothing has been accomplished without interest on the part of the actors; and if interest be called passion, Inasmuch as the whole individuality, to the neglect of all other actual or possible interests and claims, is devoted to an object with every fibre of volition, concentrating all its desires and powers upon it we may affirm absolutely that nothing great in the World has been accomplished without passion.georg wilhelm friedrich hegel
By remembering then that I am a part of such a whole, I shall be content with everything that happens. And Inasmuch as I am in a manner intimately related to the parts which are of the same kind with myself, I shall do nothing unsocial, but I shall rather direct myself to the things which are of the same kind with myself, and I shall turn all my efforts to the common interest, and divert them from the contrary.marcus aurelius
I wasn’t disappointed, Inasmuch as I expected nothing.roger zelazny
But let us now dismiss these poetical fictions; because with what is divine they have mingled much of human alloy; and let us now consider what the deity has declared concerning himself and the other gods. The region surrounding the Earth has its existence in virtue of birth. From whom then does it receive its eternity and imperishability, if not from him who holds all things together within defined limits, for it is impossible that the nature of bodies (material) should be without a limit, Inasmuch as they cannot dispense with a Final Cause, nor exist through themselves.
God's service in this name is the service of God's house, and therefore they are convertible. And who sees not, that whosoever ministers to the poor, ministers to God:;? As it appears in that solemn sentence of the last day, Inasmuch as you did feed, clothe, lodge the poor, you did it unto me.
By remembering then that I am a part of such a whole, I shall be content with everything that happens. And Inasmuch as I am in a manner intimately related to the parts which are of the same kind with myself, I shall do nothing unsocial, but I shall rather direct myself to the things which are of the same kind with myself, and I shall turn all my efforts to the common interest, and divert them from the contrary.
How vast the number of people who are well versed in every science , yet it is their adherence to the holy Word of God which will determine their faith, Inasmuch as the fruit of every science is none other than the knowledge of divine precepts and submission unto His good-pleasure.
What, then, is the absurd? The absurd is that the eternal truth has come into existence in time, that God has come into existence, has been born, has grown up. etc., has come into existence exactly as an individual human being, indistinguishable from any other human being, Inasmuch as all immediate recognizability is pre-Socratic paganism and from the Jewish point of view is idolatry.
This doctrine raises social life, Inasmuch as it teaches us to hate no man, neither to despise, to deride, to envy, or to be angry with any.Glyn Lloyd-Hughes
Take heed to carefully consider the words of every soul, then hold fast to the proofs which attest the truth. If ye fail to discover truth in a person’s words, make them not the object of contention, Inasmuch as ye have been forbidden in the Bayán to enter into idle disputation and controversy, that perchance on the Day of Resurrection ye may not engage in argumentation, and dispute with Him Whom God shall make manifest.báb
