In the history of the world there have been thousands of kings and emperors who called themselves "their highnesses," "their majesties," and "their exalted majesties" and so on. They shone for a brief moment , and as quickly disappeared. But Ashoka shines and shines brightly like a bright star , even unto this day.
Don't pray when it rains if you don't pray when the sun shines.satchel paige
"Mariam is never very far, she is here, in these walls they've repainted, in the trees they've planted, in the blankets that keep the children warm, in these pillows and books and pencils. She is in the children's laughter. She is in the verses Aziza recites and in the prayers she mutters when she bows westward. But, mostly, Miriam is in Laila's own heart, where she shines with the bursting radiance of a thousand suns."
Very luckily for you and me,the uncivilized sun mysteriously shines on "good" and "bad" alike. He is an artist.e. e. cummings
There is a place, List, daughter! in a black and hollow vault, Where day is never seen; there shines no sun, But flaming horror of consuming fires; A lightless sulphur, choked with smoky fogs Of an infected darkness; in this place Dwell many thousand thousand sundry sorts Of never-dying deaths.
It was inevitable that as soon as we had enjoyed a few days of reasonable summer weather, the country would suffer an acute water shortage. It can rain for100 days, but if the sun shines on the 101st there will be hosepipe restrictions on the 102nd.Auberon Alexander Waugh
It will be readily admitted that brown tints have never coursed beneath our skin; it will be discovered that yellow shines forth in our flesh, that red blazes, and that green, blue and violet dance upon it with untold charms, voluptuous and caressing.Umberto Boccioni
The robe of flesh wears thin, and with the years God shines through all things.john buchan
It may be said that his wit shines at the expense of his memory.alain-rené lesage
In Christian ethics ... animals are seen as mere things. They can therefore be used for vivisection, hunting, coarsing, bull-fights and horse-races and can be whipped to death as they struggle along with their heavy carts of stone. Shame on such a morality that fails to recognise the eternal essence that exists in every living thing and shines forth with inscrutable significance from all eyes that see the sun.Arthur Schopenhauer
Light breaks where no sun shines; Where no sea runs, the waters of the heart Push in their tides.dylan thomas
The higher the trail the steeper it grows Ten thousand tiers of dangerous cliffs The stone bridge is slippery with green moss Cloud after cloud keeps flying by Waterfalls hang like ribbons of silk The moon shines down on the bright pool I climb the highest peak once more To wait where the lone crane flies
Abstruse and mystic thoughts you must express With painful care, but seeming easiness; For truth shines brightest thro' the plainest dress.Wentworth Dillon
Two goddesses now must Cyprus adore; The Muses are ten, the Graces are four; Stella's wit is so charming, so sweet her fair face; She shines a new Venus, a Muse, and a Grace.
In the face of the sun are great thunderbolts hurled, And the storm - clouds have shut out its light ; But a Rainbow of Promise now shines on the world , And the universe thrills at the sight .
