Famous quotes containing the word herbert:

    Prayer the Churches banquet, Angels age,
    Gods breath in man returning to his birth,
    The soul in paraphrase, heart in pilgrimage,
    The Christian plummet sounding heav’n and earth;
    —George Herbert (1593–1633)

    I, who had heard of music in the spheres,
    But not of speech in stars, began to muse:
    But turning to my God, whose ministers
    The stars and all things are; If I refuse,
    Dread Lord, said I, so oft my good;
    Then I refuse not ev’n with blood
    To wash away my stubborn thought:
    For I will do or suffer what I ought.
    —George Herbert (1593–1633)

    I know the wayes of learning; both the head
    And pipes that feed the presse, and make it runne;
    —George Herbert (1593–1633)
