Famous quotes containing the words jesus, heart, agonizing and/or congregation:

    The little Jesus came to town;
    With ox and sheep He laid Him down;
    Peace to the byre, peace to the fold,
    For that they housed Him from the cold!
    Lizette Woodworth Reese (1856–1935)

    In every unbeliever’s heart there is an uneasy feeling that, after all, he may awake after death and find himself immortal. This is his punishment for his unbelief. This is the agnostic’s Hell.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)

    Flabby, bald, lobotomized,
    he drifted in a sheepish calm,
    where no agonizing reappraisal
    jarred his concentration of the electric chair—
    hanging like an oasis in his air
    of lost connections. . . .
    Robert Lowell (1917–1977)

    He believes without reservation that Kentucky is the garden spot of the world, and is ready to dispute with anyone who questions his claim. In his enthusiasm for his State he compares with the Methodist preacher whom Timothy Flint heard tell a congregation that “Heaven is a Kentucky of a place.”
