Famous quotes containing the word sayings:

    One believes is what matters. Ecstatic identities
    Between one’s self and the weather and the things
    Of the weather are the belief in one’s element,
    The casual reunions, the long-pondered
    Surrenders, the repeated sayings that
    There is nothing more and that it is enough....

    —For the State of Florida, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    Many are called but few are chosen. There are sayings of Christ which suggest that the Church he came to establish will always be a minority affair.
    Edward Norman (b. 1946)
