Famous quotes containing the word flesh:

    Should poor souls fear a shade or night,
    Who came sure from a sea of light?
    Or since those drops are all sent back
    So sure to thee, that none doth lack,
    Why should frail flesh doubt any more
    That what God takes, He’ll not restore?
    Henry Vaughan (1622–1695)

    Come, thou shalt go home, and we’ll have flesh for holidays, fish for fasting-days, and moreo’er puddings and flap-jacks, and thou shalt be welcome.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    One, two and many: flesh had made him blind,
    Flesh had one pleasure only in the act,
    Flesh set one purpose only in the mind—
    Triumph of flesh and afterwards to find
    Still those same terrors wherewith flesh was racked.
    Robert Graves (1895–1985)
