Famous quotes containing the word holy:

    and the oxen near
    The worn foundations of their resting-place,
    The holy manger where their bed is corn
    And holly torn for Christmas. If they die,
    As Jesus, in the harness, who will mourn?
    Lamb of the shepherds, Child, how still you lie.
    Robert Lowell (1917–1977)

    Her track, where’er the Goddess roves,
    Glory pursue, and generous Shame,
    Th’ unconquerable Mind, and Freedom’s holy flame.
    Thomas Gray (1716–1771)

    Power, I said. Power to walk into the gold vaults of the nations, into the secrets of kings, into the holy of holies. Power to make multitudes run squealing in terror at the touch of my little invisible finger. Even the moon’s frightened of me. Frightened to death. The whole world’s frightened to death.
    R.C. Sherriff (1896–1975)
