Famous quotes containing the words georges bernanos, bernanos and/or georges:

    Have you never been moved by poor men’s fidelity, the image of you they form in their simple minds? Why should you always talk of their envy, without understanding that what they ask of you is not so much your worldly goods, as something very hard to define, which they themselves can put no name to; yet at times it consoles their loneliness; a dream of splendor, of magnificence, a tawdry dream, a poor man’s dream—and yet God blesses it!
    Georges Bernanos (1888–1948)

    Faith is not a thing which one “loses,” we merely cease to shape our lives by it.
    —Georges Bernanos (1888–1948)

    At anchor she rides the sunny sod,
    As full to the gunnel of flowers growing
    As ever she turned her home with cod
    From Georges Bank when winds were blowing.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
