Famous quotes containing the word flesh:
“Oh, yes, Id do it all again; the spirit is willing yet; I feel the same desire to do the work but the flesh is weak. Its too bad that our bodies wear out while our interests are just as strong as ever.”

“O! that this too too solid flesh would melt,
Thaw and resolve itself into a dew;
Or that the Everlasting had not fixd
His canon gainst self-slaughter! O God! O God!
How weary, stale, flat, and unprofitable
Seem to me all the uses of this world.
Fie ont! O fie! tis an unweeded garden,
That grows to seed;”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“My Friend is not of some other race or family of men, but flesh of my flesh, bone of my bone. He is my real brother.”
