Famous quotes containing the words rosary and/or holy:

    Dust rises from the main road and old Délira is stooping in front of her hut. She doesn’t look up, she softly shakes her head, her headkerchief all askew, letting out a strand of grey hair powdered, it appears, with the same dust pouring through her fingers like a rosary of misery. She repeats, “we will all die”, and she calls on the good Lord.
    Jacques Roumain (1907–1945)

    We that are bound by vows and by promotion,
    With pomp of holy sacrifice and rites,
    To teach belief in good and still devotion,
    To preach of heaven’s wonders and delights—
    Yet, when each of us in his own heart looks,
    He finds the God there far unlike his books.
    Fulke Greville (1554–1628)
