Famous quotes containing the words division, men and/or ice:
“For in the division of the nations of the whole earth he set a ruler over every people; but Israel is the Lords portion: whom, being his firstborn, he nourisheth with discipline, and giving him the light of his love doth not forsake him. Therefore all their works are as the sun before him, and his eyes are continually upon their ways.”
—Apocrypha. Ecclesiasticus 17:17-9.
“Towards him they bend
With awful reverence prone; and as a God
Extoll him equal to the highest in Heavn:
Nor faild they to express how much they praisd,
That for the general safety he despisd
His own: for neither do the Spirits damnd
Loose all thir vertue; lest bad men should boast
Thir specious deeds on earth, which glory excites,
Or close ambition varnisht oer with zeal.”
—John Milton (16081674)
“I know the ice in your drink is senile.
I know your smile will develop a boil.
You know only that you are on top,
swinging like children on the money swing....”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
