Visit Quotes

He doth entreat your grace, my noble lord, To visit him to-morrow or next day: He is within, with two right reverend fathers, Divinely bent to meditation, And in no worldly suits would he be moved To draw him from his holy exercise.

William Shakespeare

If God is watching us, as some believers suggest, as though we were a television show and God had a lot of free time, the deity would surely be bemused by how dumbed-down devotion has sometimes become in this so-called modern era. How might an omnipotent being with the long view of history respond to those who visit the traveling exhibit of a grilled-cheese sandwich, sold on eBay, that is said to bear the image of the Virgin Mary? It certainly argues against intelligent design, or at least intelligent design in humans.

Anna Quindlen

A visit to a cinema is a little outing in itself. It breaks the monotony of an afternoon or evening; it gives a change from the surroundings of home, however pleasant.

Ivor Novello

Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man, youth never.

Anna Jameson

A lot of people would rather tour sewers than visit their cousins.

Jane Howard

I was in Kashmir last weekend. Went to visit one of my sweaters.

Albert Brooks

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I sure would not want to live there

Unknown

What was the visit (to a park) like 25 years ago, and what is it like now?... There is no way to increase the number of quality parks. People go to the parks for quiet, solitude, and the feeling of space.

Garrett Hardin†

After a visit to the beach, it's hard to believe that we live in a material world.

Pam Shaw

Conscience is a mother-in-law whose visit never ends

Henry Louis Mencken

When angels visit us, we do not hear the rustle of wings, nor feel the feathery touch of the breast of a dove; but we know their presence by the love they create in our hearts.

Unknown

The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us and we see nothing but sand; the angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone.

George Eliot

Visit us again, Savior. Your children, burdened with disbelief, blinded by a patina of wisdom, carom down this vale of fear. We cry for you although we have lost your name.

Maya Angelou

These days when I see a child in Waitrose and smile and say, "Hello, are you going to visit your Mum in her sheltered accommodation when you grow up?" it provokes glistening eyes and hollow laughter. And if you pursue it with, "Or are you going to be a drug dealer?" it may result in a snub.

Tom Baker

A person came to make him a visit whilst he was sitting one day with a lady of his family, who retired upon that to another part of the room with her work, and seemed not to attend to the conversation between the Earl and the other person, which turned soon into some dispute upon subjects of religion; after a good deal of that sort of talk, the Earl said at last, "People differ in their discourse and profession about these matters, but men of sense are really but of one religion." Upon which says the lady of a sudden, "Pray, my lord, what religion is that which men of sense agree in?" "Madam," says the Earl, "men of sense never tell it."

Anthony Ashley Cooper, 1st Earl of Shaftesbury

The film moves at what I consider to be the speed of art which is slow. Cremaster 2 does what I think sculpture does: It moves slowly and requires that one move around it to understand it, and to visit it repeatedly.

Matthew Barney

For the same reason I read the National Geographic, I like to see places I will never visit.

Edward Bernays

I keep wondering if, say, there is intelligent life on other planets, the scientists argue that something like two percent of the other planets have the conditions, the physical conditions, to support life in the way it happened here, did Christ visit each and every planet, go through the same routine, the Agony in the Garden, the Crucifixion, and so on...

Donald Barthelme

But when shall spring visit the mouldering urn? Oh when shall it dawn on the night of the grave?

James Beattie

I started about five years ago when I did a hospital visit and was shocked at what a huge difference the [Starlight Children's Foundation] makes for not only these children but also their families, who are also affected. I consider family one of the most important aspects of life, because at the end of the day your family is who is always going to be there for you. When it comes to these children, their family is all they have because some of them never get to leave the hospital.

Corbin Bleu Reivers

But it pleased God to visit us then with death daily, and with so general a disease that the living were scarce able to bury the dead.

William Bradford

It takes a huge effort to free yourself from memory, but when you succeed, you start to realize that youre capable of far more than you imagined. You live in this vast body called the Universe, which contains all the solutions and all the problems. Visit your soul; dont visit your past. The Universe goes through many mutations and carries the past with it. We call each of those mutations a life, but just as the cells in your body change and yet you remain the same, so time does not pass, it merely changes.

Paulo Coelho
