Our headstrong passions shut the door of our souls against God.
Here is all straight and narrow as a tomb Oh shut me not within a little room.
She keeps on being Queenly in her own room, with the door shut.
There paused to shut the doorA fellow called the Wind,With mystery before,And reticence behind.bliss carman
His playing . . . is one of those rare things that may only come once in a lifetime and even not in one person's life, it may be centuries before there is anyone like that again. He is a funny little fellow only about 30 and plays with his eyes shut practically the whole time, every note every pause and tone colour is reflected in his face and to hear him again, to draw the bow across is a revelation.Pablo Casals
What does NOT work best for anyone, though, is being forced to keep a Windows partition around just to play video games. The best operating system for playing games is the one that lets you keep your word processor, instant messenger, email, and music player open in the background while you play. The worst is the one that will force you to shut all that down just to screw around for a few minutes.ryan c. gordon
True (quoth Ales) thinges doone can not be vndoone,Be they done in due tyme, to late, or to soone,But better late than neuer to repent this,To late (quoth my aunt) this repentance showd is,Whan the stéede is stolne shut the stable durre.john heywood
If you would know Christ at all, you must go to Him as a sinful man, or you are shut out from Him altogether.alexander maclaren
Oh, for Christ's sake shut up. Obviously the New Democratic Party is not only misinformed but uninterested in the subject.pierre trudeau
Folds of scarlet drapery shut in my view to the right hand; to the left were the clear panes of glass, protecting, but not separating me from the drear November day. At intervals, while turning over the leaves in my book, I studied the aspect of that winter afternoon. Afar, it offered a pale blank of mist and cloud; near, a scene of wet lawn and storm-beat shrub, with ceaseless rain sweeping away wildly before a long and lamentable blast.charlotte brontë
All these relics gave... Thornfield Hall the aspect of a home of the past: a shrine to memory. I liked the hush, the gloom, the quaintness of these retreats in the day; but I by no means coveted a night's repose on one of those wide and heavy beds: shut in, some of them, with doors of oak; shaded, others, with wrought old-English hangings crusted with thick work, portraying effigies of strange flowers, and stranger birds, and strangest human beings, all which would have looked strange, indeed, by the pallid gleam of moonlight.charlotte brontë
I took a great deal of pleasure in it, and I still feel nostalgic about it. However, I felt that it had led me to live in a parallel world of pure invention, shut inside my solitude. Naturally, it was precisely for that purpose that it was made and that was why I took pleasure in it, but I wanted to regain body and roots.jean dubuffet
I compare human life to a large mansion of many apartments, two of which I can only describe, the doors of the rest being as yet shut upon me.john keats
Think about this some of us actively fighting to remove Saddam Hussein don't agree with the cause themselves, but they're doing their duty. And it is our duty as loyal Americans to shut up once the fighting begins, unless unless facts prove the operation wrong, as was the case in Vietnam.Bill O'Reilly
A phrase much used in political circles in this country is "playing into the hands of".:; It is a sort of charm or incantation to silence uncomfortable truths.:; When you are told that by saying this, that or the other you are "playing into the hands of" some sinister enemy, you know that it is your duty to shut up immediately.george orwell
A thousand years a poor man watched Before the gate of Paradise: But while one little nap he snatched, It oped and shut. Ah! was he wise?
Thou tell'st me there is murder in mine eye; 'Tis pretty, sure, and very probable, That eyes, that are the frail'st and softest things, Who shut their coward gates on atomies, Should be call'd tyrants, butchers, murderers!william shakespeare
Straight people don't know, what you're about. They put you down and shut you out. You gave to me a new belief and soon the world will love you, sweet leaf
It wasn't our intention to shut down the Web site. Our intention was to remove the documents.
God has nothing to say to the self-righteous. Unless you humble yourself before Him in the dust, and confess before Him your iniquities and sins, the gate of heaven, which is open only for sinners, saved by grace, must be shut against you forever.
It is self-love and its offspring self-deception, which shut the gates of heaven, and lead men, as if in a delicious dream, to hell.christian scriver
Chapel of Saint Sebastian, has crucifix first brought to Panaji in 1812 from Old Goa after the Inquisition was suppressed. It is considered an unusual piece since Christ ’s eyes are open – rather than shut as is customary - and legend has it that this was done to instill fear in the hearts of those being brought before the dreaded Inquisitors.Amy Karafin
Open your mouth again and I'll nail it shut.
[to camera] Excuse me for just a second. [walks off-camera, to studio audience] shut up!craig ferguson
Build thee more stately mansions, O my soul, As the swift seasons roll! Leave thy low-vaulted past! Let each new temple, nobler than the last, shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast, Till thou at length art free, Leaving thine outgrown shell by life's unresting sea!
shut not thy purse-strings always against painted distress.Charles Lamb
