Famous quotes containing the words virgin and/or blessed:

    As individuals and as a nation, we now suffer from social narcissism. The beloved Echo of our ancestors, the virgin America, has been abandoned. We have fallen in love with our own image, with images of our making, which turn out to be images of ourselves.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)

    The first ones ever, oh, ever to know
    of the rising of Jesus, his glory to be,
    were Mary, Joanna, and Magdalene,
    and blessed are they are they who see.
    Linda Wilberger Egan (b. 1946)
