Famous quotes containing the words prayer and/or shawl:

    Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one’s weakness ... It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.
    Mohandas K. Gandhi (1869–1948)

    I mourn the safe and motherly old middle-class queen, who held the nation warm under the fold of her big, hideous Scotch-plaid shawl and whose duration had been so extraordinarily convenient and beneficent. I felt her death much more than I should have expected; she was a sustaining symbol—and the wild waters are upon us now.
    Henry James (1843–1916)
