Hugh of Saint Victor quotes

  • Does not the passage of Moses and the Israelites into the Holy Land yield incomparably more poetic variety than the voyages of Ulysses or Aeneas?

  • The Bible is not my book and Christianity is not my religion. I could never give assent to the long complicated statements of Christian dogma.

  • I am busily engaged in the study of the Bible. I believe it is God's word because it finds me where I am.

  • We must surrender ourselves so utterly that we can never own ourselves again. We must hand over self and all its rights in an eternal covenant, and give God the absolute right to own us, control us and possess us forever.

  • There is no kind of experience in which a Christian has a right to refuse to praise God, for 'all things work together for good to them that love God.'

  • Books are the basis; purity is the force; preaching is the essence; utility is the principle.

  • And malt does more than Milton can to justify God's ways to man.

  • Chum was a British boy's weekly which, at the end of the year was bound into a single huge book; and the following Christmas parents bought it as Christmas presents for male children.

  • My depth of purse is not so great Nor yet my bibliophilic greed, That merely buying doth elate: The books I buy I like to read: Still e'en when dawdling in a mead, Beneath a cloudless summer sky, By bank of Thames, or Tyne, or Tweed, The books I read — I like to buy.

  • In very clear and available language, this book details how to recognize the inner critic and how to deal effectively with it. Byron Brown's presentation is useful for any individual who wishes to be free from the inner suffering and coercion of this ancient foe of our humanity, but it is specifically directed to those interested and engaged in the inner journey toward realization and enlightenment.
