Romans

Famous quotes containing the word romans:

    There was about all the Romans a heroic tone peculiar to ancient life. Their virtues were great and noble, and these virtues made them great and noble. They possessed a natural majesty that was not put on and taken off at pleasure, as was that of certain eastern monarchs when they put on or took off their garments of Tyrian dye. It is hoped that this is not wholly lost from the world, although the sense of earthly vanity inculcated by Christianity may have swallowed it up in humility.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    I perceive that God is no respecter of persons.
    Bible: New Testament Acts, 10:34.

    Said by Peter at Caesarea; similar wording is found in Romans 2:11: “There is no respect of persons with God.”

    I’ll stay by your side until you confess. And if you don’t, I’ll feed you to the villagers like the Romans fed Christians to the lions.
    —Willis Cooper. Rowland V. Lee. Krogh (Lionel Atwill)
