Gregory

Famous quotes containing the word gregory:

    It is the custom of the Roman Church which I unworthily serve with the help of God, to tolerate some things, to turn a blind eye to some, following the spirit of discretion rather than the rigid letter of the law.
    —Pope Gregory VII (c. 1020–1085)

    There’s something like a line of gold thread running through a man’s words when he talks to his daughter, and gradually over the years it gets to be long enough for you pick up in your hands and weave into a cloth that feels like love itself. It’s another thing, though, to hold up that cloth for inspection.
    —John Gregory Brown (20th century)

    when her husband came,
    complaining about the tobacco spit on him,
    they decided to run North
    for a free evening.
    —Carole Gregory Clemmons (b. 1945)
