Famous quotes containing the word sentence:

    Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation?
    Bible: New Testament, Luke 23:40.

    One of the criminals crucified with Jesus , to the other.

I see that they forget that the first requisite and rule is that expression shall be vital and natural, as much as the voice of a brute or an interjection: first of all, mother tongue; and last of all, artificial or father tongue. Essentially your truest poetic sentence is as free and lawless as a lamb’s bleat.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    There is then creative reading as well as creative writing. When the mind is braced by labor and invention, the page of whatever book we read becomes luminous with manifold allusion. Every sentence is doubly significant, and the sense of our author is as broad as the world.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
