Famous quotes containing the word christian:

    The most Christian France is the sole wet-nurse to the Roman court.
    François Rabelais (1494–1553)

    If you are well off and can afford to spend ten or twenty-five dollars a day to hire some patient soul to listen to your troubles you can be readjusted to the crazy scheme of things and spare yourself the humiliation of becoming a Christian Scientist. You can have your ego trimmed or removed, as you wish, just like a wart or bunion.
    Henry Miller (1891–1980)

    Humility is the sure evidence of Christian virtues. Without it, we retain all our faults still, and they are only covered over with pride, which hides them from other men’s observation, and sometimes from our own too.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)
