glory

A Quote by Laurence I. Neale, D.D. on business, determination, glory, kindness, life, understanding, and vision

In some measure all that comes after you is going to be influenced and determined by the kind of life you make in your business of living. When viewed from such a height of vision, even the seemingly least important life gathers round it a glory which truly passes understanding.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on achievement, boasts, and glory

Achieve results, But never glory in them. Achieve results, But never boast. Achieve results, But never be proud. Achieve results, Because this is the natural way.

A Quote by L. Tom Perry on angels, children, fatherhood, glory, greatness, heaven, honor, and thought

Have you ever thought of yourself as a junior angel crowned with glory and honor? Every one of our Father in Heaven's children is great in His sight. If the Lord sees greatness in you, how then should you see yourself?

A Quote by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. on evolution, glory, and survival

I was taught that the human brain was the crowning glory of evolution so far, but I think it's a very poor scheme for survival.

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on glory, god, language, music, and wilderness

When God created Man, he gave him Music as a language different from all other languages. And early man sang his glory in the wilderness; and drew the hearts of kings and moved them from their thrones.

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on spring, lebanon, glory, unknown god, home, memory, place, and cedars

Spring is beautiful everywhere, but it is more than beautiful in Lebanon. Spring is the spirit of an unknown God speeding through the world, which, as it reaches Lebanon, pauses, because now it is as at home with the souls of the Prophets and Kings hovering over the land, chanting with the brooks of Judea, the eternal Psalms of Solomon, renewing with the Cedars of Lebanon memories of an ancient glory.

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on church, darkness, driving, emptiness, faith, falsehood, glory, gold, hypocrisy, jesus, life, praise, and sacred

Oh Jesus, they have built these churches for the sake of their own glory, and embellished them with silk and melted gold. . . . They left the bodies of Thy chosen poor wrapped in tattered raiment in the cold night. . . . They filled the sky with the smoke of burning candles and incense and left the bodies of Thy faithful worshipers empty of bread. . . . They raised their voices with hymns of praise, but deafened themselves to the cry and moan of the widows and orphans. Come again, Oh Living Jesus, and drive the vendors of Thy faith from Thy sacred temple, for they have turned it into a dark cave where vipers of hypocrisy and falsehood crawl and abound.

A Quote by Joseph Rodman Drake on angels, freedom, glory, heart, heaven, home, hope, mountains, and purity

When Freedom from her mountain-height Unfurled her standard to the air, She tore the azure robe of night, And set the stars of glory there. She mingled with its gorgeous dyes The milky baldric of the skies, And striped its pure, celestial white With streakings of the morning light. Flag of the free heart's hope and home! By angel hands to valour given! Thy stars have lit the welkin dome, And all thy hues were born in heaven. Forever float that standard sheet! Where breathes the foe but falls before us, With Freedom's soil beneath our feet, And Freedom's banner streaming o'er us?
