Famous quotes containing the words movements and/or religious:

    In the works of man, everything is as poor as its author; vision is confined, means are limited, scope is restricted, movements are labored, and results are humdrum.
    Joseph De Maistre (1753–1821)

    God from the mount of Sinai, whose grey top
    Shall tremble, he descending, will himself
    In thunder lightning and loud trumpets’ sound
    Ordain them laws; part such as appertain
    To civil justice, part religious rites
    Of sacrifice, informing them, by types
    And shadows, of that destined seed to bruise
    The serpent, by what means he shall achieve
    Mankind’s deliverance.
    John Milton (1608–1674)
