Who is sir herbert read?

Famous quotes containing the words read and/or herbert:

    Each [side in this war] looked for an easier triumph, and a result less fundamental and astounding. Both read the same Bible, and pray to the same God; and each invokes His aid against the other. It may seem strange that any men should dare to ask a just God’s assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men’s faces; but let us judge not that we be not judged.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    When almost all was out, God made a stay,
    Perceiving that alone of all His treasure
    Rest in the bottom lay.
    —George Herbert (1593–1633)
