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.
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
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
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.
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
Whilst twilight's curtain spreading far, Was pinned with a single star.thomas hood
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
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
"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
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
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
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!
The virtuous are then conveyed to Swarga or Elysium , Whilst the wicked are driven to the different regions of Naraka or Tartarus .
The rule is "that Whilst all is in paper, you may amend."
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
Death hangs over thee: Whilst yet thou livest, Whilst thou mayest, be good.
