Sweet

Famous quotes containing the word sweet:

    Protestantism has the method of Jesus with His secret too much left out of mind; Catholicism has His secret with His method too much left out of mind; neither has His unerring balance, His intuition, His sweet reasonableness. But both have hold of a great truth, and get from it a great power.
    Matthew Arnold (1822–1888)

    In social halls a favored guest
    In years that follow victory won,
    How sweet to feel your festal fame
    In woman’s glance instinctive thrown:
    Repose is yours—your deed is known,
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    I will go back to the great sweet mother,
    Mother and lover of men, the sea.
    I will go down to her, I and no other,
    Close with her, kiss her and mix her with me.
    —A.C. (Algernon Charles)
