glory

A Quote by Henry Ward Beecher on glory and love

in

To the great tree-loving fraternity we belong. We love trees with universal and unfeigned love, and all things that do grow under them or around them - the whole leaf and root tribe. Not alone when they are in their glory, but in whatever state they are - in leaf, or rimed with frost, or powdered with snow, or crystal-sheathed in ice, or in severe outline stripped and bare against a November sky - we love them.

Henry Ward Beecher (1813 - 1887)

A Quote by Henry James, Jr. on glory and simplicity

I hate American simplicity. I glory in the piling up of complications of every sort. If I could pronounce the name James in any different or more elaborate way I should be in favour of doing it.

A Quote by Henri Frédéric Amiel on beginning, belief, christianity, death, defeat, divinity, eternity, faith, fatherhood, glory, god, grief, happiness, imitation, joy, love, mystery, nature, pain, power, sacred, sacrifice, salvation, soul, suffering, tea

To curse grief is easier than to bless it, but to do so is to fall back into the point of view of the earthly, the carnal, the natural man. By what has Christianity subdued the world if not by the apotheosis of grief, by its marvelous transmutation of suffering into triumph, of the crown of thorn into the crown of glory, and of gibbet into a symbol of salvation? What does the apotheosis of the Cross mean, if not the death of death, the defeat of sin, the beatification of martyrdom, the raising to the skies of voluntary sacrifice, the defiance of pain? . . . Suffering was a curse from which man fled; now it becomes a purification of the soul, a sacred trial sent by God. Eternal Love, a divine dispensation meant to sanctify and ennoble us, an acceptable aid to faith, a strange imitation into happiness. Power of belief! All remains the same, and yet all is changed. A new certitude arises to deny the apparent and the tangible; it pierces through the mystery of things, it places an invisible Father behind visible nature, it shows us joy shining through tears, and makes of pain the beginning of joy.

A Quote by Hamilton Wright Mabie on glory, heaven, imagination, and nature

Man is incomprehensible without Nature and Nature is incomprehensible apart from man. For the delicate loveliness of the flower is as much in the human eye as in its own fragile petals and in the splendor of the heavens as much in the imagination that kindles at the touch of their glory as in the shining of countless worlds.

A Quote by Fra Giovanni Giocondo on darkness, gloom, glory, joy, and world

The gloom of the world is but a shadow. Behind it, yet within our reach is joy. There is radiance and glory in the darkness could we but see - and to see we have only to look.

Giovanni Giocondo (1433 - 1515)

A Quote by George Washington on careers, earth, glory, mind, and reflection

I am led to reflect how much more delightful to an undebauched mind, is the task of making improvements on the earth, than all the vain glory which can be acquired from ravaging it, by the most uninterrupted career of conquests.
