Famous quotes containing the words grace and/or harbour:

    It is not only prayer that gives God glory but work. Smiting on an anvil, sawing a beam, whitewashing a wall, driving horses, sweeping, scouring, everything gives God some glory if being in his grace you do it as your duty.
    Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–1889)

    Patience, the beggar’s virtue, Shall find no harbour here.
    Philip Massinger (1583–1640)
