Blessings

Famous quotes containing the word blessings:

    When you overpay small people you frighten them. They know that their merits or activities entitle them to no such sums as they are receiving. As a result their boss soars out of economic into magic significance. He becomes a source of blessings rather than wages. Criticism is sacrilege, doubt is heresy.
    Ben Hecht (1893–1964)

    What blessings thy free bounty gives
    Let me not cast away;
    For God is paid when man receives,
    To enjoy is to obey.
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)

    I hate the noise and hurry inseparable from great Estates and Titles, and look upon both as blessings that ought only to be given to fools, for ‘tis only to them that they are blessings.
    Mary Wortley, Lady Montagu (1689–1762)
