A Quote by Stephen L. Richards on body, duty, divinity, mankind, pollution, sacred, spirit, and weakness

The human body is sacred - the veritable tabernacle of the divine spirit which inhabits it. It is a solemn duty of mankind to develop, protect and preserve it from pollution, unnecessary wastage and weakness.

Stephen L. Richards (1879 - 1959)

A Quote by Sir Robert Baden-Powell on age, charity, children, day, diet, duty, finance, freedom, home, leisure, life, love, mankind, mind, peace, pleasure, sacred, wives, and work

Possibly the best suggestion in condensed form, as to how to live, was given by my old Headmaster, Dr. Haig Brown, in 1904, when he wrote his Recipe for Old Age. A diet moderate and spare, Freedom from base financial care, Abundant work and little leisure, A love of duty more than pleasure, An even and contented mind In charity with all mankind, Some thoughts too sacred for display In the broad light of common day, A peaceful home, a loving wife, Children, who are a crown of life; These lengthen out the years of man Beyond the Psalmist's narrow span.

Sir Robert Baden-Powell (1857 - 1941)

A Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge on pleasure and sacred

In Xanadu did Kubla Khan A stately pleasure-dome decree: Where Alph, the sacred river, ran Through caverns measureless to man Down to a sunless sea.

A Quote by Samuel Miller on death, faith, good, hunger, meaning, purpose, questions, religion, sacred, thinking, time, truth, and world

Many kinds of religion are available, some not even skin deep, some mad and unsubstantial, some as harmless as the rouge on the skin of a spinster. A good bit of religion today seems shallow. It does not seem to matter except behind stained glass windows on Sunday morning. It is not dishonest religion so much as restricted religion, "-meaning it does not serve the purpose," a way of thinking for a special time and a special place. It answers a thousand questions we have not asked, and by its supposed sacred customs smothers the questions we might ask or die. For the truth is that our world is both hungry for faith and sick of it..

A Quote by Salvador Dali on correction, mistakes, nature, sacred, and understanding

Mistakes are almost always of a sacred nature. Never try to correct them. On the contrary: rationalize them, understand them thoroughly. After that, it will be possible for you to sublimate them.

A Quote by Saint Thomas Aquinas on diversity, observation, questions, sacred, salvation, teaching, and truth

In questions of this sort there are two things to be observed. First, that the truth of the Scriptures be inviolably maintained. Secondly, since Scripture doth admit of diverse interpretations, that no one cling to any particular exposition with such pertinacity that, if what he supposed to be the teaching of Scripture should afterward turn out to be clearly false, he should nevertheless still presume to put it forward, lest thereby the sacred Scriptures should be exposed to the derision of unbelievers and the way of salvation should be closed to them.

Saint Thomas Aquinas (c. 1225 - 1274)

A Quote by Russell M. Nelson on children, deed, god, honor, potential, sacred, and thought

Who are we? We are children of God. Our potential is unlimited. Our inheritance is sacred. May we always honor that heritage - in every thought and deed.

A Quote by Rush H. Limbaugh III on death, eternity, liberals, life, sacred, sharing, and taxes

In Colma, a suburb of San Francisco, California there's a proposal pending to tax . . . the dead. If proponents get their way, grave sites will be taxed $5 dollars - per grave, per year - for eternity. In Colma the dead outnumber the living by a ratio of roughly 1000-to-1, including such notables as: Wyatt Earp, Levi Strauss, and William Randolph Hearst. And they, apparently, haven't paid their fair share. For liberals, when it comes to taxes . . . nothing is sacred.

Rush Limbaugh (1951 -)

A Quote by Rosie Dimanno on acceptance, people, questions, sacred, and thinking

Go your own way. Question everything. Accept nothing. Accept no dogma, no can't. There are too many people walking around thinking they're sacred cows, and they're only half right
