glory

A Quote by R. J. Farrer on advice, control, garden, glory, good, joy, order, and water

Advice to those about to build a Water-garden - DON'T. Not that the Water-garden is not a joy and a glory; but that it is cruelly hard to keep in order and control unless you are a master of millions and of broad ample acres of pool and pond. Water, like fire, is a good servant, perhaps, but is painfully liable to develop into a master.

A Quote by Peter Pierre Abélard on country, fatherhood, fulfillment, glory, god, grace, hope, joy, peace, people, praise, prayer, rest, sons, spirit, trouble, vision, and wishes

O what their joy and their glory must be, Those endless sabbaths the blessed ones see! crowns for the valiant, for weary ones rest: God shall be all, and in all ever blest. Truly Jerusalem name we that shore, vision of peace that brings hope evermore; wish and fulfillment shall severed be ne'er, nor the thing prayed for come short of the prayer. There, where no trouble distraction can bring, we the sweet anthems of Zion shall sing, while for thy grace, Lord, their voices of praise thy blessed people eternally raise. Now, in the meantime, with hearts raised on high, we for that country must yearn and must sigh, seeking Jerusalem, dear native land, through the long exile on Babylon's strand. Low before him with our praises we fall, of whom, and in whom, and through whom are all; of whom, the Father; and in whom, the Son; through whom, the Spirit, with both ever one.

A Quote by Paul Tillich on glory, language, loneliness, pain, and solitude

Language has created the word loneliness to express the pain of being alone, and the word solitude to express the glory of being alone.

A Quote by Paul Tillich on glory, language, loneliness, pain, and solitude

Our language has wisely sensed the two sides of being alone. It has created the word "loneliness" to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word "solitude" to express the glory of being alone.

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.

A Quote by Orison Swett Marden on character, fame, friendship, glory, influence, life, magic, money, nature, plants, power, and wealth

Who can estimate the real wealth that inheres in a fine character. . . . How base and mean money and huge estates look in comparison. All other things fade before it. Its touch is like magic to win friendship, influence, power. Can you afford to chill, to discourage, to crush out of your life this sweet, sensitive plant, which would flower in your nature and give added glory to your life, for the sake of a few dollars, a little questionable fame?

A Quote by Oliver Sacks on glory, secrets, senses, and world

We have five senses in which we glory and which we recognize and celebrate, senses that constitute the sensible world for us. But there are other senses - secret senses, sixth senses, if you will - equally vital, but unrecognized, and unlauded . . . unconscious, automatic.
