Priests

Famous quotes containing the word priests:

    Wee image of my bonnie Betty,
    I fatherly will kiss and daut thee,
    As dear an’ near my heart I set thee
    Wi’ as guid will,
    As a’ the priests had seen me get thee
    That’s out o’ hell.
    Robert Burns (1759–1796)

    Drive the women from the bed just as you drove them from the choir; a eunuch sings in Rome, and the priests masturbate.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    Let judges secretly despair of justice: their verdicts will be more acute. Let generals secretly despair of triumph; killing will be defamed. Let priests secretly despair of faith: their compassion will be true.
    Leonard Cohen (b. 1934)
