Famous quotes containing the word kingdom:

    How we dwelt in two worlds
    the daughters and the mothers
    in the kingdom of the sons.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.
    Bible: New Testament, Luke 9:62.

    Illness is the night-side of life, a more onerous citizenship. Everyone who is born holds dual citizenship, in the kingdom of the well and in the kingdom of the sick. Although we all prefer to use only the good passport, sooner or later each of us is obliged, at least for a spell, to identify ourselves as citizens of that other place.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)
