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 you are proclaiming peace and good will to men, emancipating all nations, you insist upon retaining an absolute power over wives. But you must remember that arbitrary power is like most other things which are very hard, very liable to be broken — and notwithstanding all your wise laws and maxims we have it in our power not only to free ourselves but to subdue our masters, and without violence throw both your natural and legal authority at our feet.Abigail Adams
Whilst that for which all virtue now is sold, And almost every vice almighty gold.Ben Jonson
It is vain to expect virtue from women till they are in some degree independent of men; nay, it is vain to expect that strength of natural affection which would make them good wives and mothers. Whilst they are absolutely dependent on their husbands they will be cunning, mean, and selfish.mary wollstonecraft
Oft did I wonder why the setting sun Should look upon us with a blushing face: Is't not for shame of what he hath seen done, Whilst in our hemisphere he ran his race?lyman heath
Whilst the exploits of the conqueror and the intrigues of the demagogue are faithfully preserved through a succession of ages, the persevering and unobtrusive efforts of genius , developing the best blessings of the Deity to man, are often consigned to oblivion.
Whilst I was big in clamour came there in a man, Who, having seen me in my worst estate, Shunn'd my abhorr'd society.william shakespeare
I know not what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, Whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.
I can see that the Lady has a genius for ruling, Whilst I have a genius for not being ruled.jane welsh carlyle
"With a Socialist government, there will not be a national surplus Whilst there continues to be inequality."josé luis rodríguez zapatero
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!thomas david
A pardlike 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? On the withering flower The killing sun smiles brightly: on a cheek The life can burn in blood, even while the heart may break.Percy Bysshe Shelley
The great genius does not let his work be determined by the concrete finite conditions that surround him, Whilst it is from these that the work of the statesman takes its direction and its termination. ... It is the genius in reality and not the other who is the creator of history, for it is only the genius who is outside and unconditioned by history.otto weininger
The gods in heaven are beheld by the inhabitants of hell , as they move with their heads inverted; Whilst the god, as they cast their eyes downwards, behold the sufferings of those in hell.
The virtuous are then conveyed to Swarga or Elysium , Whilst the wicked are driven to the different regions of Naraka or Tartarus .
Even in ordinary speech we call a person unreasonable whose outlook is narrow, who is conscious of one thing only at a time, and who is consequently the prey of his own caprice, Whilst we describe a person as reasonable whose outlook is comprehensive, who is capable of looking at more than one side of a question and of grasping a number of details as parts of a whole.
Thus suicidal selfishness, that blights The fairest feelings of the opening heart, Is destined to decay, Whilst from the soil Shall spring all virtue, all delight, all love, And judgment cease to wage unnatural war With passion's unsubduable array.Percy Bysshe Shelley
