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.
If every one in the world will love universally; states not attacking one another; houses not disturbing one another; thieves and robbers becoming extinct; emperor and Ministers, fathers and sons, all being affectionate and filial -- if all this comes to pass the world will be orderly. Therefore, how can the wise man who has charge of governing the empire fail to restrain hate and encourage love? So, when there is universal love in the world it will be orderly, and when there is mutual hate in the world it will be disorderly.mozi
I have changed my Ministers but I have not changed my measures.Iamstill formoderation, and Iwill governby it.Queen Anne
In a cruel irony, speculators - rather then elected politicians - are the shots on crisis management. In an absurd logic, those who foster financial turbulence have been invited by the G7 Finance Ministers to identify policies which attenuate financial turbulence.michel chossudovsky
How nauseating in view of all this to see Fianna Fáil and the Progressive Democrats, the Taoiseach and the Tánaiste, reduce this to a game of scrabble . . . to a matter of finding the right words. We now know that Fianna Fáil Ministers see nothing wrong with a Minister for Finance taking large amounts of money for personal use from business interests as long as there is no proof that any specific favours were done.joe higgins
We all know that Prime Ministers are wedded to the truth, but like other married couples they sometimes live apart.saki
The result of cutting [political power] up into little bits is simply that the man who can sweep the greatest number into one heap will govern the rest... In a pure democracy the ruling men will be the wirepullers and their friends; but they will no more be on an equality with the voters than soldiers of Ministers of State are on an equality with the subjects of monarchy.james fitzjames stephen
You Ministers go on shuffling the old cards till they are so worn out and dirty that one can hardly tell the pips on them.Anthony Trollope
Jesus Christ raised women above the condition of mere slaves, mere Ministers to the passions of the man, raised them by His sympathy, to be Ministers of God.
Freedom of Speech is ever the Symptom, as well as the Effect of a good Government. In old Rome, all was left to the Judgment and Pleasure of the People, who examined the publick Proceedings with such Discretion, & censured those who administred them with such Equity and Mildness, that in the space of Three Hundred Years, not five publick Ministers suffered unjustly. Indeed whenever the Commons proceeded to Violence, the great Ones had been the Agressors.
All Ministers ... who were Oppressors, or intended to be Oppressors, have been loud in their Complaints against Freedom of Speech, and the License of the Press; and always restrained, or endeavored to restrain, both.
Media people should have long noses like an elephant to smell out politicians, mayors, prime Ministers and businessmen. We need to know the reality, the good and the bad, not just the appearance.Dalai Lama
But now, coming to your shameless assertion that Ministers of the altar should be allowed to marry, I consider it superfluous to unsheathe the sword of my own words against you, since we see the armed forces of the whole Church and the massed array of all the holy Fathers ready to resist you. And where so great a host of heavenly troops opposes you, one can only wonder that your novel and rash attempt at doctrine does not submit when confronted by such authority.peter damian
If the world is ever conquered for our Lord, it is not by Ministers, nor by office-bearers, nor by the great, and noble and mighty, but by every member of Christ's body being a working member; doing his work; filling his own sphere; holding his own post; and saying to Jesus, "Lord, what wilt Thou have me to do?"thomas guthrie
Music must take rank as the highest of the fine arts — as the one which, more than any other, Ministers to human welfare.Herbert Spencer
Other kings let their Ministers make their mistakes for them, but Louis insisted on making the important mistakes personally.will cuppy
I believe that the human race has developed a form of collective schizophrenia in which we are not only the slaves to this imposed thought behavior, but we are also the police force of it. The reason most people don't express their individuality and actually deny it, is not fear of what prime Ministers think of us or the head of the federal reserve, It's what their families and their friends down at the bar are going to think of them.david icke
The amount of our danger, therefore, it would be impolitic to conceal from the people. It was the first duty of Ministers to make it known, and after doing so, it should have been their study to provide against it, and to point out the means to the country by which it might be averted.
A leading Welsh minister and Welsh Ministers are, I think, among the best preachers was invited to preach an anniversary sermon before one of the great societies in London. Naturally anxious to disregard no propriety, he consulted the proper authority, the secretary. "Should I read my sermon?" "Oh, it is no matter, only bring some of your Welsh fire with you." " But you cannot, my dear sir, carry fire on paper." "No, that is true; but you may use the paper to kindle the fire."
There are passages of the Bible that are soiled forever by the touches of the hands of Ministers who delight in the cheap jokes they have left behind them.
It may be that Ministers really think that their prayers do good, and it may be that frogs imagine that their croaking brings spring.

Only let us love God, and then nature will compass us about like a cloud of Divine witnesses; and all influences from the earth, and things on the earth, will be Ministers of God to do us good. Only let there be God within us, and then every thing outside us will become a godlike help.
