Famous quotes containing the word prophecies:

    The Old Testament teems with prophecies of the Messiah, but nowhere is it intimated that that Messiah is to stand as a God to be worshipped. He is to bring peace on earth, to build up the waste places—to comfort the broken-hearted, but nowhere is he spoken of as a deity.
    Olympia Brown (1835–1900)

    Every man is not so much a workman in the world as he is a suggestion of that he should be. Men walk as prophecies of the next age.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    With prophecies the commentator is often a more important man than the prophet.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)
