Famous quotes containing the words religious and/or spiritual:
“When the soul drifts uncertainly between life and the dream, between the minds disorder and the return to cool reflection, it is in religious thought that we should seek consolation.”
—Gérard De Nerval (18081855)
“The lion shall never lie down with the lamb. The lion eternally shall devour the lamb, the lamb eternally shall be devoured. Man knows the great consummation in the flesh, the sensual ecstasy, and that is eternal. Also the spiritual ecstasy of unanimity, that is eternal. But the two are separate and never to be confused.”
—D.H. (David Herbert)
