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.
There arethree classes whichneed sanctuary morethan othersbirds, wild flowers, and Prime Ministers.
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
The first life insurance societies where formed in England in the years between 1692 and 1720. In America, life insurance became available to the clergy through the Presbyterian Ministers Fund, founded in 1759(still in existence), and the Episcopal Corporation, founded ten years later (subsequently merged).andrew tobias
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.
A non-Communist premier with Communist Ministers would be like a woman trying to stay half pregnant.Charles Eustis Bohlen
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
How can the government stop anyone from protesting? The land is not their 'father's property'. The citizens are the masters of this country and the Ministers are their servants.
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
You fools! I and my fellows Are Ministers of Fate; the elements Of whom your swords are temper'd, may as well Wound the loud winds, or with bemock'd-at stabs Kill the still-closing waters, as diminish One dowle that's in my plume.william shakespeare
By the time Verily was sixteen, a sturdy and rather good-looking young man of some education and impeccable manners, he had become a thoroughgoing skeptic. If the dogmas about witchery could be so hopelessly wrong, how could any of the teachings of the Ministers be relied upon? It left Verily Cooper at loose ends, intellectually speaking, for all his teachers spoke as if religion were the cornerstone of all other learning, and yet all of Verily’s actual studies led him to the conclusion that sciences founded upon religion were uncertain at best, utterly bogus at worst.orson scott card
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.
Owing to the identification of religion with virtue, together with the fact that the most religious men are not the most intelligent, a religious education gives courage to the stupid to resist the authority of educated men, as has happened, for example, where the teaching of evolution has been made illegal. So far as I can remember, there is not one word in the Gospels in praise of intelligence; and in this respect Ministers of religion follow gospel authority more closely than in some others.bertrand russell
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.
Even Ministers of good things are like torches, a light to others, waste and destruction to themselves.
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.
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.
The raven himself is hoarse That croaks the fatal entrance of Duncan Under my battlements. Come, you spirits That tend on mortal thoughts! unsex me here, And fill me from the crown to the toe, top-full Of direst cruelty; make thick my blood, Stop up the access and passage to remorse, That no compunctious visitings of nature Shake my fell purpose, nor keep peace between The effect and it! Come to my woman's breasts, And take my milk for gall, you murdering Ministers, Wherever in your sightless substances You wait on nature's mischief!
We have no law practised in this land but is the law of God; and so did the lawyers maintain it before the King in Henry the 8th's time, the pope's legates, and chief archbishops and bishops of England; and did then prove it to them, that there was no law practised in England but the law of God, which our Ministers are loth to touch, and busy themselves to study.
