A Quote by Elizabeth Barrett Browning on death, faith, feeling, god, grace, idealism, life, losing, love, men, passion, praise, saints, soul, and tears

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight For the ends of Being and ideal Grace. I love thee freely, as men strive for Right; I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise. I love thee with the passion put to use In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith. I love thee with a love I seemed to lose With my lost saints-I love thee with the breadth, Smiles, tears, of all my life!-and, if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death.

Elizabeth Browning (1806 - 1861)

A Quote by Elizabeth Barrett Browning on earth, heaven, hospitals, saints, and simplicity

I think it frets the saints in heaven to see How many desolate creatures on the earth Have learnt the simple dues of fellowship And social comfort, in a hospital.

A Quote by Edward King on christ, facts, life, power, and saints

Christ lives in his saints. We know his life in them. St. Paul prayed to know the power of the Resurrection, though he knew the fact.

A Quote by Darlene B. Curtis on catholicism, christ, day, god, home, jesus, life, love, parenthood, questions, and saints

I was reared in a traditional Catholic home. Never once could I question the love my parents and grandparents had for the Lord, well as for one another. . . . [Now] in living the true gospel of Jesus Christ as a Latter-day Saint, I have complete assurance that God does live and that he hears and answers prayers.

A Quote by Charles Kingsley on admiration, dreams, fatherhood, gifts, god, good, grace, heaven, life, men, power, religion, saints, sermons, spirit, thought, and worth

One good man, one man who does not put on his religion once a week with his Sunday coat, but wears it for his working dress, and lets the thought of God grow into him, and through and through him, till everything he says and does becomes religious, that man is worth a thousand sermons - he is a living Gospel - he comes in the spirit and power of Elias - he is the image of God. And men see his good works, and admire them in spite of themselves, and see that they are Godlike, and that God's grace is no dream, but that the Holy Spirit is still among men, and that all nobleness and manliness is His gift, His stamp, His picture: and so they get a glimpse of God again in His saints and heroes, and glorify their Father who is in heaven.

A Quote by Bruce R. McConkie on earth, laws, life, mortality, principles, saints, and work

We are here on earth to work-to work long, hard, arduous hours, to work until our backs ache and our tired muscles knot, to work all our days. This mortal probation is one in which we are to eat our bread in the sweat of our faces until we return to the dust from whence we came. Work is the law of life; it is the ruling principle in the lives of the Saints.
