Our headstrong passions shut the door of our souls against God.
If A is success in life, then A = x + y + z. Work is x, play is y and z is keeping your mouth shut.Albert Einstein
The worshiping of other things, the showing of disrespect by thought, word, or deed, and the refusal to acknowledge our obligation to him these things shut God out from our lives.
The road to Hades is easy to travel; at any rate men pass away with their eyes shut.
Gracious as sunshine, sweet as dew shut in a lily's golden core.margaret junkin preston
And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as thestarsforeverand ever.Butthou,ODaniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.Bible (Old Testament)
One golden rule for people who want to get on in politics is to keep their traps shut in August.
I shall never be persuaded that God hath shut up all light of learning within the lantern of Aristotle's brain.Sir Walter Raleigh
Folks don’t like to have somebody around knowin’ more than they do. It aggravates ‘em. You’re not gonna change any of them by talkin’ right, they’ve got to want to learn themselves, and when they don’t want to learn there’s nothing you can do but keep your mouth shut or talk their language.harper lee
'There is a season for everything, patience will reward you and reveal all answers to your questions.' 'Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain't going away.'elvis presley
If you shut up truth and bury it under the ground, it will but grow, and gather to itself such explosive power that the day it bursts through it will blow up everything in its way.Émile zola
Let the doors be shut upon him, that he may play the fool nowhere but in 's own house.william shakespeare
Lately Marge's memory had grown weak, which is to say that it no longer contained the past time on deposit there, it was not strong enough to keep shut up the moments, the mornings and evenings, of her long life, its seals broke, and her memories ran together mingling, indistinguishable from the present. Her memory had grown incontinent with age.john crowley
Speaking of love, one problem that recurs more and more frequently these days, in books and plays and movies, is the inability of people to communicate with the people they love: husbands and wives who can't communicate, children who can't communicate with their parents, and so on. And the characters in these books and plays and so on, and in real life, I might add, spend hours bemoaning the fact that they can't communicate. I feel that if a person can't communicate, the very least he can do is to shut up.tom lehrer
You cannot rob me of free nature's grace, You cannot shut the windows of the sky Through which Aurora shows her brightening face.james thomson
My mother had an intense longing to communicate before she died. “If it is necessary to salvation," she persisted, doggedly, "I will not take it if darling Annie is to be shut out.” I would be rather lost with her than saved without her.
The way to see by faith is to shut the eye of reason, the morning daylight appears plainer when you put out your candle.
So the HP guy comes up to me (at the Melbourne conference) and he says, 'If you say nasty things like that to vendors you're not going to get anything'. I said 'no, in eight years of saying nothing, we've got nothing, and I'm going to start saying nasty things, in the hope that some of these vendors will start giving me money so I'll shut up'.theo de raadt
No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality; even larks and katydids are supposed, by some, to dream. Hill House, not sane, stood by itself against its hills, holding darkness within; it had stood so for eighty years and might stand for eighty more. Within, walls continued upright, bricks met neatly, floors were firm, and doors were sensibly shut; silence lay steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone.shirley jackson
To see is one thing; to picture or visualise is another. A person can see things, only when his eyes are open, and when his surroundings are illuminated; but he can have pictures in his mind’s eye, when his eyes are shut and when the world is dark.Gilbert Ryle
Not only does democracy make every man forget his ancestors, but also clouds their view of their descendants and isolates them from their contemporaries. Each man is for ever thrown back on himself alone, and there is danger that he may be shut up in the solitude of his own heart.alexis de tocqueville
