Famous quotes containing the word shedding:

    Such is the remorseless progression of human society, shedding lives and souls as it goes on its way. It is an ocean into which men sink who have been cast out by the law and consigned, with help most cruelly withheld, to moral death. The sea is the pitiless social darkness into which the penal system casts those it has condemned, an unfathomable waste of misery. The human soul, lost in those depths, may become a corpse. Who shall revive it?
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)

    Thus Winter falls,
    A heavy gloom oppressive o’er the world
    Through Nature shedding influence malign,
    And rouses up the seeds of dark disease.
    The soul of man dies in him, loathing life,
    And black with more than melancholy views.
    James Thomson (1700–1748)

    The sin of slavery is one of which it may be said that without the shedding of blood there is no remission.
    James A. Garfield (1831–1881)
