Famous quotes containing the words forces, armed and/or people:

    Silence is the general consecration of the universe. Silence is the invisible laying on of the Divine Pontiff’s hands upon the world. Silence is at once the most harmless and the most awful thing in all nature. It speaks of the Reserved Forces of Fate. Silence is the only Voice of our God.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    A woman’s beauty is a storm-tossed banner;
    Under it wisdom stands, and I alone
    Of all Arabia’s lovers I alone
    Nor dazzled by the embroidery, nor lost
    In the confusion of its night-dark folds,
    Can hear the armed man speak.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Now the appearance of the glory of the LORD was like a devouring fire on the top of the mountain in the sight of the people of Israel.
