But as the priceless treasure too frequently hides at the bottom of well, it needs some courage to dive for it, especially as he that does so will be likely to incur more scorn and obloquy for the mud and water into which he has ventured to plunge, than thanks for the jewel he procures; as like in manner, she who undertakes the cleansing of a careless bachelor's apartment will be liable to more abuse for the dust she raises than commendation for the clearance she effects.
Art is the principal way in which the human mind has tried to remake the world in a way that makes sense. The carefully edited, slow-motion, action replay of a rugby tackle, a car crash or a sex act has more significance than the original event. Thanks to virtual reality, we will soon be moving into a world where a heightened super-reality will consist entirely of action replays, and reality will therefore be all the more rich and meaningful.j. g. ballard
[Leon: Thanks. When we get out of here, drinks are on me. ]Yeah, I know a good bar!
Sleep; and if life was bitter to thee, pardon, If sweet, give Thanks; thou hast no more to live; And to give Thanks isgood, and to forgive.algernon charles swinburne
Rejoice, the Lord is King! Your Lord and King adore; Mortals, give Thanks and sing, And triumph evermore: Lift up your heart, lift up your voice; Rejoice, again, I say rejoice.Charles Wesley
I am blind, but I am able to read Thanks to a wonderful new system known as broil. I'm sorry, I'll just feel that again.Peter Cook
More terrorists are given training and sanctuary in the United States than anywhere on earth. They include mass murderers, torturers, former and future tyrants and assorted international criminals. This is virtually unknown to the American public, Thanks to the freest media on earth.john pilger
Of all the many and (Thanks to a free press) the ever-multiplying blessings attendant upon the "glorious constitution" of literature, not the least precious and profitable to a modern cultivator of systems and syllables, in pamphlets, magazines, and folios, is the right of Quotation.samuel laman blanchard
When you think I’ve been wounded by a good five bullets, one in the face, one in the shoulder, one in the head, two in the body, and that the last one stuck in the barrel because the trigger jammed... You have to believe in miracles. I’ve had so many air disasters, and yet I’ve always come out unscathed – Thanks to a miracle while by God and the prophets.muhammad reza pahlavi
But let the good old corn adorn The hills our fathers trod; Still let us, for his golden corn, Send up our Thanks to God!john greenleaf whittier
Take, eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave Thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.
The only kind of marriage liberals had ever glorified is the gay kind. But Thanks to Michael Schiavo, the sanctity of marriage is fast becoming a liberal sacrament, with the proviso it has to involve 'mercy killing.' It took Michael Schiavo's devoted efforts to starve and dehydrate his wife to restore liberal faith in the institution.
Beggar that I am, I am even poor in Thanks.
Thyself and thy belongings Are not thine own so proper, as to waste Thyself upon thy virtues, them on thee. Heaven doth with us as we with torches do, Not light them for themselves; for if our virtues Did not go forth of us, ’t were all alike As if we had them not. Spirits are not finely touch’d, But to fine issues, nor Nature never lends The smallest scruple of her excellence, But, like a thrifty goddess, she determines Herself the glory of a creditor, Both Thanks and use.
Thanks to God that he gave me stubbornness when I know I am right.john adams
"Thanks for your questions, Elijah Burke, but I like to keep my reasons for joining The New Breed to myself."phil brooks
If I had my way, I would build a lethal chamber as big as the Crystal Palace, with a military band playing softly, and a Cinematograph working brightly; then I’d go out in the back streets and main streets and bring them in, all the sick, the halt, and the maimed; I would lead them gently, and they would smile me a weary Thanks; and the band would softly bubble out the ‘Hallelujah Chorus’.d. h. lawrence
The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep's for which the sheep Thanks the shepherd as his liberator, while the wolf denounces him for the same act as the destroyer of liberty . Plainly, the sheep and the wolf are not agreed upon a definition of liberty.
A person is not a democrat Thanks to his ignorance of literature and the arts, nor an elitist because he or she has cultivated them. The possession of knowledge makes for unjust power over others only if used for that very purpose: a physician or lawyer or clergyman can exploit or humiliate others, or he can be a humanitarian and a benefactor. In any case, it is absurd to conjure up behind anybody who exploits his educated status the existence of an "elite" scheming to oppress the rest of us.jacques barzun
