Famous quotes containing the words pope and/or gregory:

    Most souls, ‘tis true, but peep out once an age,
    Dull sullen pris’ners in the body’s cage:
    Dim lights of life, that burn a length of years,
    Useless, unseen, as lamps in sepulchres;
    —Alexander Pope (1688–1744)

    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)
