Divine Quotes

The fear of some divine and supreme powers keeps men in obedience.

Robert Burton

When the divine decree descends, the human being is cornered.

Muhammad ibn Al_al Taqi

Sincerity and truth form the basis of every virtue. Be what thou seemest; live thy creed; Hold up to earth the torch divine; Be what thou prayest to be made; Let the great Master's steps be thine.

Horatius Bonar

My bark is wafted to the strand By breath Divine; And on the helm there rests a hand Other than mine.

Henry Alford

Concerning the generation of animals akin to them, as hornets and wasps, the facts in all cases are similar to a certain extent, but are devoid of the extraordinary features which characterize bees; this we should expect, for they have nothing divine about them as the bees have.

Aristotle

In a word, godhead; to remake ourselves in the divine image.

Sri Aurobindo

Transform the divided individual into the world-personality; let all thyself be the divine. This is thy goal.

Sri Aurobindo

To listen to some devout people, one would imagine that God never laughs; Heine was nearer the mark when he found in Him the divine Aristophanes. God's laughter is sometimes very coarse and unfit for polite ears; He is not satisfied with being Molire, He must needs also be Aristophanes and Rabelais.

Sri Aurobindo

It used to be said, that in places like this, nature eventually failed to support man, the truth is exactly the reverse, here man failed to support nature. Ten thousand years ago man regarded the natural world as divine, but as he domesticated animals and plants so nature lost some of its mystery and appeared to be little more than a larder that could be raided with impunity.

Sir David Frederick Attenborough

Ennobling this dull pomp, the life of kings, By contemplation of diviner things.

Matthew Arnold

The saving of anyone is something which is not in the power of man, but only of God. No one can be saved in virtue of what he can do. Everyone can be saved in virtue of what God can do. The divine claim takes the form that it puts both the obedient and the disobedient together and compels them to realise this, to recognise their common status in face of the commanding God.

Karl Barth

So touch my dying lip: so bridge that deep: So pledge my waking from the gift of sleep, And, sacramental, raise me the Divine: Strong brother in God and last companion, Wine.

Joseph Hilaire Pierre Ren Belloc

And Chaucer, with his infantine Familiar clasp of things divine.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning
