It is impossible for the mind which is not totally destitute of piety, to behold the sublime, the awful, the amazing works of creation and providence — the heavens with their luminaries, the mountains, the ocean, the storm, the earthquake, the volcano, the circuit of the seasons, and the revolutions of empires — without marking in them all the mighty hand of God, and feeling strong emotions of reverence toward the Author of these stupendous works.
Lo, children are an heritage of the L: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.Bible (Old Testament)
The grandeur of the dooms We have imagined for the mighty dead.john keats
What dire offence from am'rous causes springs, What mighty contests rise from trivial things.Alexander Pope
There studious let me sit, And hold high converse with the mighty dead.
Let those whose Hearts and Hands are strongTell eager Tales of mighty Deeds;Enough if my sequestered songTo hush'd and twilight Gardens leads!Clear Waters, drawn from secret WellsPerchance may fevered Lips assuage;The Tales an elder Pilgrim tellsTo such as go on Pilgrimage.Such the soft Path my Words would trace,Thus with the moving Waters move;So leave, across the Ocean's Face,A glimmering Stair to Hope and Love.a. c. benson
Little drops of water,Little grains of sand,Make the mighty oceanAnd the pleasant land.Thus the little minutes,Humble though they be,Make the mighty agesOf eternity.julia abigail fletcher carney
We say then, that Christianity is adapted to the intellect, because its spirit coincides with that of true philosophy; because it removes the incubus of sensuality and low vice; because of the place it gives to truth; because it demands free inquiry; because its mighty truths and systems are brought before the mind in the same way as the truths and systems of nature; because it solves higher problems than nature can; and because it is so communicated as to be adapted to every mind.mark hopkins
True faith, by a mighty effort of the will, fixes its gaze on our Divine Helper, and there finds it possible and wise to lose its fears. It is madness to say, "I will not be afraid; "it is wisdom and peace to say, "I will trust and not be afraid."alexander maclaren
Prostrate on earth the bleeding warrior lies,And Isr'el's beauty on the mountains dies.How are the mighty fallen!Hush'd be my sorrow, gently fall my tears,Lest my sad tale should reach the alien's ears:Bid Fame be dumb, and tremble to proclaimIn heathen Gath, or Ascalon, our shameLest proud Philistia, lest our haughty foe,With impious scorn insult our solemn woe.william somervile
The Divine government of the world is like a stream that rolls under us; men are only as bubbles that rise on its surface; some are brighter and larger, and sparkle longer in the sun than others; but all must break; whilst the mighty current rolls on in its wonted majesty!thomas david
No, let the monarch’s bags and others holdThe flattering, mighty, nay, al-mighty gold.john wolcot
“How does one conquer fear, Don B.?” “One takes a frog and sews it to one’s shoe,” he said. “The left or the right?” Don B. gave me a pitying look. “Well, you’d look mighty funny going down the street with only one frog sewed to your shoes, wouldn’t you?" he said. “One frog on each shoe.”Donald Barthelme
The death of a man is like the fall of a mighty nation That had valiant armies, captains, and prophets, And wealthy ports and ships all over the seas.czesław miłosz
Great is truth, and mighty above all things.
Little drops of water, little grains of sand Make the mighty ocean, and the pleasant land.

But, oh! what mighty magician can assuage A woman's envy?
A mighty fortress is our God , A sword and shield victorious ; He breaks the cruel oppressors rod And wins salvation glorious .
This was the most unkindest cut of all; For when the noble Cæsar saw him stab, Ingratitude, more strong than traitor's arms, Quite vanquish'd him; then burst his mighty heart; And, in his mantle muffling, up his face, Even at the base of Pompey's statue, Which all the while ran blood, great Cæsar fell.william shakespeare
Eyes of some men travel far For the finding of a star; Up and down the heavens they go, Men that keep a mighty rout! I'm as great as they, I trow, Since the day I found thee out, Little Flower! I'll make a stir, Like a sage astronomer.william wordsworth
Lo! body and soul! this land! mighty Manhattan, with spires, and The sparkling and hurrying tides, and the ships; The varied and ample land, the South And the North in the light Ohio's shores, and flashing Missouri, And ever the far-spreading prairies, covered with grass and corn.walt whitman
