I have nothing but contempt for the kind of governor who is afraid, for whatever reason, to follow the course that he knows is best for the State; and as for the man who sets private friendship above the public welfare — I have no use for him, either.
Sing to God, sing in praise of his name, extol him who rides on the clouds; rejoice before him—his name is the Lord. A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families, he leads out the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.Bible (Old Testament)
One must obey the man whom the city sets up in power in small things and in justice and in its opposite.Sophocles
And I say that Your Highnesses ought not to consent that any foreigner does business or sets foot here, except Christian Catholics, since this was the end and the beginning of the enterprise, that it should be for the enhancement and glory of the Christian religion, nor should anyone who is not a good Christian come to these parts.christopher columbus
The heavenly bodies are nothing but a continuous song for several voices (perceived by the intellect, not by the ear); a music which... sets landmarks in the immeasurable flow of time. It is therefore, no longer surprising that man, in imitation of his creator, has at last discovered the art of figured song, which was unknown to the ancients. Man wanted to reproduce the continuity of cosmic time... to obtain a sample test of the delight of the Divine Creator in His works, and to partake of his joy by making music in the imitation of God.johannes kepler
Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and personhood. This sets the stage for further repression and violence that spread all too easily to victimize the next minority group.coretta scott king
For valuing your own suffering sets on it the gold of a sun of pride. Suffering a lot can originate the illusion of being the Chosen of Pain.fernando pessoa
And now her eyes grew bright, and brighter still,Too bright for ours to look upon, suffusedWith many tears, and closed without a cloud.They set as sets the morning star, which goesNot down behind the darkened west, nor hidesObscured among the tempests of the sky,But melts away into the light of heaven.robert pollok
Most of us know, now, that Rousseau was wrong: that man, when you knock his chains off, sets up the death camps. Soon we shall know everything the eighteenth century didn't know, and nothing it did, and it will be hard to live with us.Randall Jarrell
I would not want you to suppose that my rejection of Allen Forte's theory of pitch-class sets implies a rejection of the notion that there can be such a thing as a pitch-class set. It is only when one defines everything in terms of pitch-class sets that the concept becomes meaningless.george perle
Liberty sets the mind free , fosters independence and unorthodox thinking and ideas. But it does not offer instant prosperity or happiness and wealth to everyone. This is something that politicians in particular must keep in mind.Boris Yeltsin
The bhagavata will chose a ?ruti note, generally the same one for all of his performances, before each performance...The baghavata sets this note on the ?ruti instrument (now days usually a harmonium ) and this single note is played in the background whenever the bhgavata is singing.
Or light or dark, or short or tall, She sets a springe to snare them all: All's one to her above her fan She'd make sweet eyes at Caliban.thomas bailey aldrich
It maybe said of them [the Hollanders], as of the Spaniards, that the sun never sets upon their Dominions.
These two sets of triangles are superimposed to show the union of the masculine and feminine aspects of your nature. When united they make the eight lotus petals of the yantra. Four gates or doors called bhupara, surround these triangles representing the gates of the consciousness to the deeper mysteries beyond.
For valuing your own suffering sets on it the gold of a sun of pride. Suffering a lot can originate the illusion of being the Chosen of Pain.
There grew pied wind-flowers and violets,br>Daisies, those pearled Arcturi of the earth, The constellated flower that never sets.Percy Bysshe Shelley
Long as there's a sun that sets, Primroses will have their glory; Long as there are violets, They will have a place in story: There's a flower that shall be mine, 'Tis the little Celandine.william wordsworth
Bloody you are. Bloody will be thy end. Shame sets your life, And will your death attend.
There be some sports are painful, and their labour Delight in them sets off; some kinds of baseness Are nobly undergone; and most poor matters Point to rich ends. This my mean task Would be as heavy to me as odious, but The mistress which I serve quickens what's dead, And makes my labours pleasures.
