Religious Orders

Famous quotes containing the words religious and/or orders:

    Divorce these days is a religious vow, as if the proper offspring of marriage.
    Tertullian (c. 150–230)

    There is nothing on earth more exquisite than a bonny book, with well-placed columns of rich black writing in beautiful borders, and illuminated pictures cunningly inset. But nowadays, instead of looking at books, people read them. A book might as well be one of those orders for bacon and bran.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
