Essentially, pride is a 'my will' rather than 'thy will' approach to life.
Ezra Taft Benson
Honor thy error as a hidden intention.
And though thou notest from thy safe recess old friends burn dim, like lamps in noisome air love them for what they are; nor love them less, because to thee they are not what they were.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Must! Is must a word to be addressed to princes? Little man, little man! Thy father, if he had been alive, durst not have used that word.
But of all plagues, good Heaven, thy wrath can send, Save me, oh, save me, from the candid friend!
Let age, not envy, draw wrinkles on thy cheeks.
This, I thought, is what is meant by 'thy will be done' in the Lord's Prayer, which I had prayed time and again without thinking about it. It means that your will and God's will may not be the same. It means there's a good possibility that you won't get what you pray for. It means that in spite of your prayers you are going to suffer.
What name to call thee by, O virgin fair, I know not, for thy looks are not of earth And more than mortal seems thy countenances.
Make hunger thy sauce, as a medicine for health.
Bind up thy words that they run not riot, and grow wanton, and gather up sins for themselves in too much talking. Let them be rather confined, and held back within their own banks. An overflowing river quickly gathers mud.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou.
When ambitious desires arise in thy heart, recall the days of extremity thou has passed through.
In this world, with thy earthly life, thou art under heaven, stars, and elements, also under hell and devils; all ruleth in thee, and over thee.
Great God of the Ants, thou hast granted victory to thy servants. I appoint thee honorary Colonel.
How blunt are all the arrows of thy quiver in comparison with those of guilt.
Great comforts do, indeed, bear witness to the truth of thy grace, but not to the degree of it; the weak child is oftener in the lap than the strong one.
Redeem thy misspent time that's past, And live this day as if thy last.
Burn not thy fingers to snuff another man's candle.
Follow thy fair sun, unhappy shadow.
Less than the dust beneath thy chariot wheel, less than the weed that grows beside thy door.
Adela Florence Nicolson
Thy love is singular when all thy delight is in Jesus Christ and in no other thing finds joy and comfort.
Most Glorious and eternal Majesty, Thou art righteous and holy in all thou dost to the sons of men, though thou hast suffered men to condemn Thy servant, Thy servant will not condemn Thee.
Welcome, wild harbinger of spring! To this small nook of earth; Feeling and fancy fondly cling, Round thoughts which owe their birth, To thee, and to the humble spot, Where chance has fixed thy lowly lot.
Thus much for thy assurance know; a hollow friend is but a hellish foe.
By the God of thy Father who shall help thee, and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts and of the womb.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
