Famous quotes containing the word actions:
“There is a Book
By seraphs writ with beams of heavenly light,
On which the eyes of God not rarely look,
A chronicle of actions just and bright
There all thy deeds, my faithful Mary, shine;
And since thou ownst that praise, I spare thee mine.”
—William Cowper (17311800)

—Penelope Leach (20th century)
