Famous quotes containing the words eastern, orthodox and/or church:

    The Eastern steamboat passed us with music and a cheer, as if they were going to a ball, when they might be going to—Davy’s locker.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The gloomy theology of the orthodox—the Calvinists—I do not, I cannot believe. Many of the notions—nay, most of the notions—which orthodox people have of the divinity of the Bible, I disbelieve. I am so nearly infidel in all my views, that too, in spite of my wishes, that none but the most liberal doctrines can command my assent.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    The hippopotamus’s day
    Is passed in sleep; at night he hunts;
    God works in a mysterious way—
    The Church can sleep and feed at once.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
