Turn Quotes

To deny the possibility, nay, the actual existence of witchcraft and sorcery, is at once flatly to contradict the revealed word of God in various passages both of the Old and New Testament, and the thing itself is a Truth to which every nation in the world hath, in its turn, borne testimony, by either example seemingly well attested or by prohibitory laws, which at least suppose the possibility of a commerce with evil spirits.


Girl, I turn that thing into a rain forest.

Lil Wayne

He had a certain frankness and generosity, qualities indeed which turn to a man's ruin, unless tempered with discretion.


Endurance is not just the ability to bear a hard thing, but to turn it into glory.

William Barclay

When it comes to my own turn to lay my weapons down, I shall do so with thankfulness and fatigue, and whatever be my destiny afterward, I shall be glad to lie down with my fathers in honor. It is human at least, if not divine.

Robert Louis Stevenson

Electricity is often called wonderful, beautiful; but it is so only in common with the other forces of nature. The beauty of electricity or of any other force is not that the power is mysterious, and unexpected, touching every sense at unawares in turn, but that it is under law, and that the taught intellect can even govern it largely. The human mind is placed above, and not beneath it, and it is in such a point of view that the mental education afforded by science is rendered super-eminent in dignity, in practical application and utility; for by enabling the mind to apply the natural power through law, it conveys the gifts of God to man.

Michael Faraday

And whiter grows the foam, The small moon lightens more; And as I turn me home, My shadow walks before.

Robert Seymour Bridges

The nation behaves well if it treats the natural resources as assets which it must turn over to the next generation increased, and not impaired in value.

Theodore Roosevelt

“Truth is one, but error proliferates. Man tracks it down and cuts it up into little pieces hoping to turn it into grains of truth. But the ultimate atom will always essentially be an error, a miscalculation.”

Rene Daumal

The longest journey begins with a single step, not with a turn of the ignition key

Edward Abbey

The lowest ebb is the turn of the tide.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

For when God said, Let there be light, and there was light, if we are justified in understanding in this light the creation of the angels, then certainly they were created partakers of the eternal light which is the unchangeable Wisdom of God, by which all things were made, and whom we call the only-begotten Son of God; so that they, being illumined by the Light that created them, might themselves become light and be called Day, in participation of that unchangeable Light and Day which is the Word of God, by whom both themselves and all else were made. The true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world, this Light lighteth also every pure angel, that he may be light not in himself, but in God; from whom if an angel turn away, he becomes impure, as are all those who are called unclean spirits, and are no longer light in the Lord, but darkness in themselves, being deprived of the participation of Light eternal. For evil has no positive nature; but the loss of good has received the name evil.

St. Augustine of Hippo

To flatter and follow others, without being flattered and followed in turn, is but a state of half enjoyment.

Jane Austen

The man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.

James Crook

On the trail of another man, the biographer must put up with finding himself at every turn; any biography uneasily shelters an autobiography within it.

Paul Murray Kendall
