Grace Quotes

Though a quarrel in the streets is a thing to be hated, the energies displayed in it are fine; the commonest man shows a grace in his quarrel.

John Keats

The flowering of civilization is the finished man, the man of sense, of grace, of accomplishment, of social power--the gentleman.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ah, when to the heart of man was it ever less than a treason to go with the drift of things to yield with a grace to reason and bow and accept at the end of a love or a season.

Brendan Francis

The paradoxes of today are the prejudices of tomorrow, since the most benighted and the most deplorable prejudices have had their moment of novelty when fashion lent them its fragile grace.

Marcel Proust

As a child I understood how to give; I have forgotten this grace since I became civilized.


Costly grace is the gospel which must be sought again and again, the gift which must be asked for, the door at which a man must knock. Such grace is costly because it calls us to follow, and it is grace because it calls us to follow Jesus Christ. It is costly because it costs a man his life, and it is grace because it gives a man the only true life. It is costly because it condemns sin, and grace because it justifies the sinner.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Grace isn't a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It's a way to live.

Jackie Windspear

Beauty without grace is the hook without the bait.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Grace has been defined as the outward expression of the inward harmony of the soul.

William Hazlitt

Christ of his gentleness, / Thirsting and hungering / Walked in the wilderness; / Soft words of grace he spoke / Unto lost desert-folk / That listened wondering.

Robert Graves

If animals could speak, the dog would be a blundering outspoken fellow; but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much.

Mark Twain

It's nothing to be born ugly. Sensibly, the ugly woman comes to terms with her ugliness and exploits it as a grace of nature. To become ugly means the beginning of a calamity, self-willed most of the time.

Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

From vulgar bounds with brave disorder part, And snatch a grace beyond the reach of art.

Alexander Pope

When your mind becomes fixed on Me, you shall overcome all difficulties by My grace. But, if you do not listen to Me due to ego, you shall perish.

Bhagavad Gita

Fearlessness may be a gift but perhaps more precious is the courage acquired through endeavour, courage that comes from cultivating the habit of refusing to let fear dictate one's actions, courage that could be described as "grace under pressure" grace which is renewed repeatedly in the face of harsh, unremitting pressure.
