It is remarkable that whilst the Doctors of the Sorbonne were urging Francis the First absolutely to suppress printing even as late as 1533 and whilst this enlightened monarch had actually issued letters-patent January 3 1535 prohibiting under pain of death any person to print any book or books, and ordering all booksellers' shops to be closed under the same penalty, the Jews should have hailed with delight this invention as a Divine gift and sung its praises because it enabled them to multiply and circulate the word of God.
How melancholy a thing is success. Whilst failure inspirits a man, attainment reads the sad prosy lesson that all our glories "Are shadows, not substantial things." Truly said the sayer, "disappointment is the salt of life" a salutary bitter which strengthens the mind for fresh exertion, and gives a double value to the prize.sir richard francis burton
As the moon's fair image quaketh in the raging waves of ocean. Whilst she, in the vault of heaven, moves with silent peaceful motion.Heinrich Heine
The poetical tendency of the present and of the preceding century has been divided in a manner singularly curious. One loud and conspicuous faction of bards, giving way to the corrupt influences of a decaying general culture, seems to have abandoned all the properties of versification and reason in its mad scramble after sensational novelty; Whilst the other and quieter school constituting a more logical evolution from the poesy of the Georgian period, demands an accuracy of rhyme and metre unknown even to the polished artists of the age of Pope.h. p. lovecraft
I saw a smith stand with his hammer, thus, The Whilst his iron did on the anvil cool.william shakespeare
For there is no friend like a sister in calm or stormy weather, to cheer one on the tedious way, to fetch one if one goes astray, to lift one if one totters down, to strengthen Whilst one stands.christina rossetti
Allah, the Exalted, gave the angels intellect without desires, He gave the animals desires without intellect, and He gave both to the sons of Adam. So a man whose intellect prevails over his desires is better than the angels, Whilst a man whose desire prevails over his intellect is worse than the animals.ali ibn abi talib
Congress in session is Congress on public exhibition, Whilst Congress in its committee-rooms is Congress at work.
Allah, the Exalted, gave the angels intellect without desires, He gave the animals desires without intellect, and He gave both to the sons of Adam. So a man whose intellect prevails over his desires is better than the angels, Whilst a man whose desire prevails over his intellect is worse than the animals.
Whilst a Face painter is harassed to death a drapery painter sits & earns 5 or 6 hundered a year & laughs all the whilethomas gainsborough
Whilst twilight's curtain spreading far, Was pinned with a single star.thomas hood
So passeth, in the passing of a day, Of mortal life, the leaf, the bud, the flower; No more doth flourish after first decay, That erst was sought to deck both bed and bower Of many a lady and many a paramour. Gather therefore the rose Whilst yet in prime, For soon comes age that will her pride deflower. Gather the rose of love Whilst yet in time, Whilst loving thou mayst loved be with equal crime.Edmund Spenser
A pard-like Spirit, beautiful and swift A love in desolation masked;a Power Girt round with weakness;it can scarce uplift The weight of the superincumbent hour; It is a dying lamp, a falling shower, A breaking billow;even Whilst we speak Is it not broken? ShelleyPercy Bysshe Shelley
Almost all men, and those that seem to be very miserable, love life, because they cannot bear to lose sight of such a beautiful and lovely world. The ideas, that every moment Whilst we live have a beauty that we take not distinct notice of, brings a pleasure that, when we come to the trial, we had rather live in much pain and misery than lose.jonathan edwards
I have far more confidence in the one man who works mentally and bodily at a matter than in the six who merely talk about it — and I therefore hope and am fully persuaded that you are working. Nature is our kindest friend and best critic in experimental science if we only allow her intimations to fall unbiased on our minds. Nothing is so good as an experiment which, Whilst it sets an error right, gives us (as a reward for our humility in being reproved) an absolute advancement in knowledge.michael faraday
It's lovely to get to say hello to people you've always admired from afar, but the fun really starts out front with people going commando Whilst wearing daring mud suits.kt tunstall
Gentlemen, the melancholy event of yesterday reads to us an awful lesson against being too much troubled about any of the objects of ordinary ambition. The worthy gentleman, who has been snatched from us at the moment of the election, and in the middle of contest, Whilst his desires were as warm, and his hopes as eager as ours, has feelingly told us, what shadows we are, and what shadows we pursue.Edmund Burke
Is it not the glory of the people of America, that, Whilst they have paid a decent regard to the opinions of former times and other nations, they have not suffered a blind veneration for antiquity, for custom, or for names, to overrule the suggestions of their own good sense, the knowledge of their own situation, and the lessons of their own experience? To this manly spirit, posterity will be indebted for the possession, and the world for the example, of the numerous innovations displayed on the American theatre, in favor of private rights and public happiness.james madison
The soul, when accustomed to superfluous things, acquires a strong habit of desiring things which are neither necessary for the preservation of the individual nor for that of the species. This desire is without limit, Whilst those which are necessary are few in number and restricted within certain limits; but what is superfluous is without end...maimonides
Those who wash their body and cleanse their garments Whilst they remain dirty by bad actions and principles, are described by Solomon as "a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet are not washed from their filthiness; a generation, oh how lofty are their eyes!" &c. (Prov. xxx. 12-13). Consider well the principles which we mentioned... as the final causes of the Law; for there are many precepts, for which you will be unable to give a reason unless you possess a knowledge of these principles...maimonides
The Divine government of the world is like a stream that rolls under us; men are only as bubbles that rise on its surface; some are brighter and larger, and sparkle longer in the sun than others; but all must break; Whilst the mighty current rolls on in its wonted majesty!
Poor worms, they hiss at me, Whilst I at home Can be contented to applaud myself, * * * with joy To see how plump my bags are and my barns.Ben Jonson
The rule is "that Whilst all is in paper, you may amend."
There is nothing so common in the framing of instruments as that Whilst the framer of them is studious to avoid one inconvenience, he incurs another which does not present itself to his view. This is often to be seen in Acts of Parliament.
Death hangs over thee: Whilst yet thou livest, Whilst thou mayest, be good.
