A Quote by Reginald Arkell on brothers, friendship, sister, sons, and war

Actual evidence I have none, But my aunt's charwoman's sister's son Heard a policeman, on his beat Say to a housemaid in Downing Street That he had a brother, who had a friend, Who knew when the war was going to end.

Reginald Arkell (1882 - 1959)

A Quote by Ralph S. Meadowcroft, D.D. on brothers, church, and nations

The church of tomorrow must be universal. It cannot belong to a particular class, race or nation, but must transcend all such barriers so the brotherhood of man may be extended among us.

A Quote by Patrick Jake "P.J." O'Rourke on books, brothers, celebrity, determination, diet, exercise, imagination, libraries, life, majorities, population, and women

Imagine of all of life were determined by majority rule. Every meal would be a pizza. Every pair of pants, even those in a Brooks Brothers suit, would be stonewashed denim. Celebrity diet and exercise books would be the only thing on library shelves. And-since women are a majority of the population-we'd all be married to Mel Gibson.

P.J. O'Rourke (1947 -)

A Quote by Paul Hamilton Hayne on anguish, art, brothers, danger, glory, grief, heart, hope, joy, misery, play, reason, temper, temptation, truth, and words

Art thou in misery, brother? Then I pray Be comforted. Thy grief shall pass away. Art thou elated? Ah, be not too gay; Temper thy joy: this, too, shall pass away. Art thou in danger? Still let reason sway, And cling to hope: this, too, shall pass away. Tempted art thou? In all thine anguish lay One truth to heart: this, too, shall pass away. Do rays of loftier glory round thee play? Kinglike art thou? This, too, shall pass away! Whate'er thou art, wher'er thy footsteps stray, Heed these wise words: This, too, shall pass away.

Where'er I roam, whatever realms to see, My heart untravell'd fondly turns to thee; Still to my brother turns with ceaseless pain, And drags at each remove a lengthening chain.

Courage, brother! Do not stumble, Though thy path be dark as night; There's a star to guide the humble: 'Trust in God, and do the Right.'

The Jewish bourgeoisie are our enemies, not as Jews but as bourgeoisie. The Jewish worker is our brother.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on body, brothers, chance, happiness, life, listening, losing, motherhood, pain, questions, sister, time, women, and wonder

Listen to these wounds of pain put in the form of questions to me by a young woman who had had two abortions: "I wonder about the spirits of those I had aborted, if they were there, if they were hurt? I was under three months each time, but a mother feels life before she feels movement." "I wonder if they are lost and alone?" "I wonder if they will ever have a body?" "I wonder if I will ever have a chance again to bring those spirits back as mine?" Alas, brothers and sisters, "wickedness never was happiness" (Alma 41:10).
