Famous quotes containing the word christ:

    For often at Church I’ve seen the stained high glass
    Pour out the Virgin and Saints, twist and untwist
    The mortal youth of Christ astride an ass.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    One story recounts that a Tennessean, after a single day in the then almost impenetrable tangle of cypress, briars, and canebreaks, pestered by myriads of mosquitoes, and bogged in the heavy gumbo mud, declared: “Arkansas is not part of the world for which Jesus Christ died—I want none of it.”
    —Administration in the State of Arka, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    Scepticism is true; for after all, men before Jesus Christ did not know where they were, nor whether they were great or small. And those who have said the one or the other, knew nothing about it, and guessed without reason and by chance. They also erred always in excluding the one or the other.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
