Famous quotes containing the word preaching:

    Camerado, I give you my hand!
    I give you my love more precious than money,
    I give you myself before preaching or law;
    Will you give me yourself?
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    What is more subtle than this which ties me to the woman or man
    that looks in my face?
    Which fuses me into you now, and pours my meaning into you?
    We understand men do we not?
    What I promis’d without mentioning it, have you not accepted?
    What the study could not teach—what the preaching could
    not accomplish is accomplish’d, is it not?
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    Sir, a woman’s preaching is like a dog’s walking on his hinder legs. It is not done well; but you are surprized to find it done at all.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)
