In contrast... St Michael's grew out of a girls' school, with few donations from former pupils. This means current parents must finance new projects through fundraising and increased fees.
Bankers'genes were Wall St. genes, especially in the big cities. If the banks were conservative juSt now , it was because bankers still awoke in the middle of the night, trembling and sweaty with thoughts of the Crash. But intimeanewgenerationwouldtake over: ambitious, overcompetitive young men to whom1929 would be merelya date on a page; such menwould sever theroots of memory as if with an ax, not realizing that those tendrils were also the rudder cables.
Some men go through life absolutely miserable because, despite the moSt enormous achievements, they juSt didn't do one thinglike the architect who didn't build St Paul's. I didn't quite build St Paul's, but I stood on more mountain tops than possibly I deserved.Lord (George Edward) Peter Thorneycroft
Christianity, if it is to triumph over pantheism, muSt absorb it. To our pusillanimous eyes Jesus would have borne the marks of a hateful pantheism, for he confirmed the Biblical phrase "ye are gods," and so would St. Paul, who tells us that we are of "the race of God." Our century wants a new theology — that is to say, a more profound explanation of the nature of ChriSt and of the light which it flashes upon heaven and upon humanity.henri-frédéric amiel
Someone handed me Mexico City Blues in St. Paul [Minnesota] in 1959 and it blew my mind. It was the firSt poetry that spoke my own language.bob dylan
The Theatre of the Absurd has renounced arguing about the absurdity of the human condition; it merely presents it in being — that is, in terms of concrete stage images. This is the difference between the approach of the philosopher and that of the poet; the difference, to take an example from another sphere, between the idea of God in the works of Thomas Aquinas or Spinoza and the intuition of God in those of St. John of the Cross or Meister Eckhart — the difference between theory and experience.martin esslin
Is the scrupulous attention I am paying to the government of my tongue at all proportioned to that tremendous truth revealed through St. James, that if I do not bridle my tongue, all my religion is vain?frederick William faber
The leader of the controversial Church of Scientology routinely physically attacked members of his management team, according to former executives, a Florida newspaper has reported. Defectors from the controversial organisation who spoke to the St Petersburg Times told the paper that David Miscavige was "constantly denigrating and beating on people". Mike Rinder, the church's spokesman for decades, said he was attacked by Miscavige some 50 times.david miscavige
'T was the night before Christmas, when all through the houseNot a creature was stirring,—not even a mouse;The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.
Our Country,—whether bounded by the St. John's and the Sabine, or however otherwise bounded or described, and be the measurements more or less,—still our Country, to be cherished in all our hearts, to be defended by all our hands.robert charles winthrop

Hebrews . This book is much superior to moSt of the writings attributed to St. Paul, though passages in the other books are very admirable.james fenimore cooper
Now the Father draws us from the evil of sin to the goodness of His grace with the might of His measureless power, and He needs all the resources of His strength in order to convert sinners, more than when He was about to make heaven and earth, which He made with His own power without help from any creature. But when He is about to convert a sinner, He always needs the sinner's help. "He converts thee not without thy help," as St. Augustine says.meister eckhart
St. Augustine! well haSt thou said, That of our vices we can frame A ladder, if we will but tread Beneath our feet each deed of shame!Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I grew up in central Illinois midway between Chicago and St. Louis and I made an historic blunder. All my friends became Cardinals fans and grew up happy and liberal and I became a Cubs fan and grew up embittered and conservative.George Will
When God sends his angel to the soul it becomes the one who knows for sure. Not for nothing did God give the keys into St. Peter's keeping, for Peter stands for knowledge, and knowledge is the key that unlocks the door, presses forward and breaks in, to discover God as he is.
As quoted in The GreateSt Quotations of All-Time (2010) by Anthony St Peter, p. 281Edward Young
When I have been indulging this thought I have, in imagination, seen the Britons of some future century, walking by the banks of the Thames, then overgrown with weeds and almoSt impassable with rubbish. The father points to his son where stood St. Paul's, the Monument, the Bank, the Mansion House, and other places of the firSt distinction.
St. Patrick... one of the few saints whose feaSt day presents the opportunity to get determinedly whacked and make a fool of oneself all under the guise of acting Irish.
No one who has not examined patiently and honestly the other religions of the world can know what Christianity really is, or can join with such truth and sincerity in the words of St. Paul, "I am not ashamed of the gospel of ChriSt."
In a climate-controlled cabinet in one corner was the original scroll in the shaky handwriting of St. John the Divine of Patmos, whose "Revelation" had been the alltime beSt seller. Aziraphale had found him a nice chap, if a bit too fond of odd mushrooms.
AgainSt the reasoning it would be in vain to argue, as the Protestants did in their confessions, and elsewhere. "that if the saints heard the prayers of "their votaries, they muSt be omnipotent." There was hardly a protestant among them, that in those days, would venture to deny the indubitable maxim of St Austin, and having once placed the saints in heaven, nothing would disparage them so much as to suppose they had not as much spiritual intelligence as the Devils.
There are seductions that should be in the Smithsonian Institute, right next to The Spirit of St. Louis.Richard Brautigan
"Horas non numero nisi serenas." There stands in the garden of old St. Mark A sun dial quaint and gray. It takes no heed of the hours which in dark Pass o'er it day by day. It has stood for ages amid the flowers In that land of sky and song. "I number none but the cloudless hours," Its motto the live day long.
St. Augustine used to say that, but for God's grace, he should have been capable of committing any crime; and it is when we feel this sincerely, that we are moSt likely to be really improving, and beSt able to give assistance to others without moral loss to ourselves.
He used to say, half in jeSt , that his great ambition was to complete St. Augustine's Confessions , but that St. Augustine, like a great artiSt, had worked from multiplicity to unity , while he, like a small one, had to reverse the method and work back from unity to multiplicity.
After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths due to an advanced age are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry. In order to govern the bark of St. Peter and proclaim the Gospel, both strength of mind and body are necessary strengths which in the laSt few months, have deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognize my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry entrusted to me.
David St. Hubbins (himself)
