It is a pity that my collection of trophies contains not a single Russian.
Manfred von Richthofen
I have always been a romantic, one of those people who believes that a woman in pink circus tights contains all the secrets of the universe.
Every legend, moreover, contains its residuum of truth, and the root function of language is to control the universe by describing it.
James A. Baldwin
Life contains but two tragedies. One is not to get your heart's desire; the other is to get it.
George Bernard Shaw
Mr. Speaker, the fact of the matter is that the Ten Commandments are a historical document that contains moral, ethical, and legal truisms that any person of any religion or even an atheist can recognize and appreciate.
Dublin university contains the cream of Ireland: Rich and thick.
Everything in Nature contains all the powers of Nature. Everything is made of one hidden stuff.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
An artist is an artist only because of his exquisite sense of beauty, a sense which shows him intoxicating pleasures, but which at the same time implies and contains an equally exquisite sense of all deformities and all disproportion.
Look at anyone's bookcase at home, no matter how modest, and you're going to find a book that contains wisdom or ideas or a language that's at least a thousand years old. And the idea that humans have created a mechanism to time travel, to hurl ideas into the future, it sort of bookends. Books are a time machine.
The extent of your consciousness is limited only by your ability to love and to embrace with your love the space around you, and all it contains.

The best of a book is not the thought which it contains, but the thought which it suggests; just as the charm of music dwells not in the tones but in the echoes of our hearts.
John Greenleaf Whittier
The Hebrew Bible contains multiple provisions to ensure that no one would go hungry. The corners of the field, forgotten sheaves of grain, gleanings that drop from the hands of the gleaner, and small clusters of grapes left on the vine were to be given to the poor.

War contains so much folly, as well as wickedness, that much is to be hoped from the progress of reason.
That's the most terrible thing about being an author - standing there at your mother's funeral, but you don't switch the author off. So your own innermost thoughts are grist for the mill. Who was it said - one of the famous lady novelists - 'unhappy is the family that contains an author'?
Cancer victimhood contains a permanent temptation to be self-centred and even solipsistic.
C. S. Lewis
John F. Kennedy
