Famous quotes containing the word sacred:

    The very locusts and crickets of a summer day are but later or earlier glosses on the Dherma Sastra of the Hindoos, a continuation of the sacred code.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Even the sacred moments when we played,
    All innocent of passion, uncorrupt,
    At noon and evening in the flame-heart’s shade.
    Claude McKay (1889–1948)

    Sacrifice is nothing other than the production of sacred things.
    Georges Bataille (1897–1962)
