Famous quotes containing the words lewis and/or wesley:

    We all ask ourselves the question why is it that some of us are killed while others remain. The only answer is our faith in the wisdom of a supreme being. If he has chosen us to live there must be a reason. I have tried to reckon out why. Perhaps he has saved us because we are needed as witnesses to remind each other, and our folks, and folks everywhere that war is too full of horrors for human beings.
    —Michael Blankfort. Lewis Milestone. Dickerman (Jack Webb)

    See him, when starved to death and turned to dust,
    Presented with a monumental bust!
    The poet’s fate is here in emblem shown:
    He asked for bread, and he received a stone.
    —Samuel Wesley (1691–1739)
