Bread

Famous quotes containing the word bread:

    He will place a tax on the air you breathe and on the bread you eat; he will give you a legislation which is as legitimate as it is unjust and instead of reasons, he’ll give you laws. These will grow in the course of time, until you no longer exist for yourselves but for others.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    Throw away respect,
    Tradition, form, and ceremonious duty,
    For you have but mistook me all this while.
    I live with bread like you, feel want,
    Taste grief, need friends.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    He humbled you by letting you hunger, then by feeding you with manna, with which neither you nor your ancestors were acquainted, in order to make you understand that one does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.
    Bible: Hebrew, Deuteronomy 8:3-8.

    Scripture cited by Jesus when tempted in the wilderness.
