Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Charles Dickens
#1. The night wore out, and, as he stood upon the bridge listening to the water as it splashed the river-walls of the Island of Paris, where the picturesque confusion of houses and cathedral shone bright in the light of the moon, the day came coldly, looking like a dead face out of the sky. Then, the night, with the moon and the stars, turned pale and died, and for a little while it seemed as if Creation were delivered over to Death's dominion. But, the glorious sun, rising, seemed to strike those words, that burden of the night, straight and warm to his heart in its long bright rays. And looking along them, with reverently shaded eyes, a bridge of light appeared to span the air between him and the sun, while the river sparkled under it. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by William Morris Davis
#2. The meaning of geography is as much a sealed book to the person of ordinary intelligence and education as the meaning of a great cathedral would be to a backwoodsman, and yet no cathedral can be more suggestive of past history in its many architectural forms than is the land about us, with its innumerable and marvellously significant geographic forms. It makes one grieve to think of opportunity for mental enjoyment that is last because of the failure of education in this respect. #Quote by William Morris Davis
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Erik Pevernagie
#3. By squirming out of our dungeon of indifference and wriggling from ourself-centered vault of unawareness, love can conjure up an aura of mental opulence and an inkling of infinity.( "Love as dizzy as a cathedral") #Quote by Erik Pevernagie
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Emily Dickinson
#4. There's a certain Slant of light, Winter afternoons - That oppresses, like the Heft Of Cathedral Tunes - Heavenly Hurt, it gives us - We can find no scar, But internal difference, Where the Meanings, are ... When it comes, the Landscape listens - Shadows - hold their breath - When it goes, 'tis like the Distance On the look of Death. #Quote by Emily Dickinson
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Robert Specht
#5. The sun was just coming up over the mountains--blood red and cold. I felt as if I was standing in the mightiest cathedral that had ever been built. There was no end to it, and no beginning. All I could do was look at it and worship. #Quote by Robert Specht
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Marcel Proust
#6. A cathedral, a wave of a storm, a dancer's leap, never turn out to be as high as we had hoped. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Violette Leduc
#7. I walk without flinching through the burning cathedral of the summer. My bank of wild grass is majestic and full of music. It is a fire that solitude presses against my lips. #Quote by Violette Leduc
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
#8. It's aquarium light and it's cathedral ceilings offered asylum and a lounge where coffee substitutes were served to those who still try to believe that life went on, and that tomorrow, or perhaps the day after tomorrow, would be just another day. #Quote by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Antonin Scalia
#9. Words change meaning over time, and often in unpredictable ways. Queen Anne is said (probably apocryphally) to have commented about Sir Christopher Wren's architecture at St. Paul's Cathedral that it was "awful, artificial, and amusing" - by which she meant that it was awe-inspiring, highly artistic, and thought-provoking. #Quote by Antonin Scalia
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Charles Dickens
#10. Not only is the day waning, but the year. The low sun is fiery and yet cold behind the monastery ruin, and the Virginia creeper on the Cathedral wall has showered half its deep-red leaves down on the pavement. There has been rain this afternoon, and a wintry shudder goes among the little pools on the cracked, uneven flag-stones, and through the giant elm-trees as they shed a gust of tears. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Annie Dillard
#11. What have we been doing all these centuries but trying to call God back to the mountain, or, failing that, raise a peep out of anything that isn't us? What is the difference between a cathedral and a physics lab? Are not they both saying: Hello? We spy on whales and on interstellar radio objects; we starve ourselves and pray till we're blue. #Quote by Annie Dillard
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Theodore Dreiser
#12. Cowperwood, who saw things in the large, could scarcely endure this minutae. He was but little
interested in the affairs of bygone men and women, being so intensely engaged with the living present.
And after a time he slipped outside, preferring the wide sweep of gardens, with their flower-lined
walks and views of the cathedral. Its arches and towers and stained-glass windows, this whole
carefully executed shrine, still held glamor, but all because of the hands and brains, aspirations and
dreams of selfish and self-preserving creatures like himself. And so many of these, as he now mused,
walking about, had warred over possession of this church. And now they were within its walls,
graced and made respectable, the noble dead! Was any man noble? Had there ever been such a thing
as an indubitably noble soul? He was scarcely prepared to believe it. Men killed to live - all of them
- and wallowed in lust in order to reproduce themselves. In fact, wars, vanities, pretenses, cruelties,
greeds, lusts, murder, spelled their true history, with only the weak running to a mythical saviour or
god for aid. And the strong using this belief in a god to further the conquest of the weak. And by such
temples or shrines as this. He looked, meditated, and was somehow touched with the futility of so #Quote by Theodore Dreiser
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Wynton Marsalis
#13. The arts speak across epochs. If you think that people started to build a cathedral in 1315 and the people worked on that cathedral, it wasn't going to be finished until 1585. So they were thinking 200 years from now. Maybe by the time I die, this wall might be put up. #Quote by Wynton Marsalis
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Richard Dawkins
#14. Religion shows a pattern of heredity which I think is similar to genetic heredity ... There are hundreds of different religious sects, and every religious person is loyal to just one of these ... The overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one their parents belonged to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained-glass, the best music when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing compared to the matter of heredity. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Hubert H. Humphrey
#15. The pursuit of peace resembles the building of a great cathedral. It is the work of a generation. In concept it requires a mater-architect; in execution, the labors of many. #Quote by Hubert H. Humphrey
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Jennifer Worth
#16. Tread softly as you draw near to the bedside of a dying man, for the space around him is holy ground. Speak in hushed tones, with awe and reverence, as you would in a cathedral. Let not the mind engage in trivial thoughts. The awesome majesty of Death can only be met in silence. #Quote by Jennifer Worth
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Alan Garner
#17. When you start, the world of publishing seems like a great cathedral citadel of talent, resisting attempts to let you inside. It isn't like that at all. It may be more difficult now, and take longer than when I started to write, but there's a great, empty warehouse out there looking for simple talent. #Quote by Alan Garner
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Simon Sinek
#18. Unless you're an astronaut, it's not the work we do that inspires us either. It's the cause we come to work for. We don't want to come to work to build a wall, we want to come to work to build a cathedral. #Quote by Simon Sinek
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Arthur Compton
#19. Yet is it possible in terms of the motion of atoms to explain how men can invent an electric motor, or design and build a great cathedral? If such achievements represent anything more than the requirements of physical law, it means that science must investigate the additional controlling factors, whatever they may be, in order that the world of nature may be adequately understood. For a science which describes only the motions of inanimate things but fails to include the actions of living organisms cannot claim universality. #Quote by Arthur Compton
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Dan Castellaneta
#20. I've made a kind of pact with myself where I said, It doesn't matter what it is as long as I'm acting. #Quote by Dan Castellaneta
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by H.L. Mencken
#21. I think there is a limit beyond which free speech can't go….a limit that is very seldom mentioned. It's the point where free speech begins to collide with the right to privacy… I don't think there are any other conditions to free speech. I have the right to say and to believe anything I please, but I don't have the right to press it on anybody else. For example, take for instance the Catholic Church, which I am on good terms with, personally, but which I have no belief in whatsoever. I have a right to print my dissent from its doctrines, to utter them. I have exercised that right for many years. But I have no right to go on the cathedral steps on Sunday morning, when the Catholics are coming out from High Mass, and make a speech denouncing them. I don't think there is any such right. Nobody has got the right to be a nuisance to his neighbors, or to hurt his neighbor's feelings wantonly. If they come to him and say "What do you think of this Mass that we have just finished?", I think that he has the right to answer. But he has no right to press his opinions on them. Of course you'll notice the peculiar thing about the United States, where there is very little free speech. Free speech is a very limited right, in this country, as I have learned to my bitter experience, more than once. Yet, it is the country where the right to press opinions on reluctant hearers is carried to a development that is unheard of on earth. The whole country's full of propagandists who are bothering ev #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by John Burnside
#22. As a child, I was always intrigued by the question: what is it that distinguishes a city from a town? Is it size? Population? Location? When I asked grown-ups, the confident answer was that a city has to have a cathedral - which, to a child raised in a devout Catholic setting, made sense. #Quote by John Burnside
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Mary Connealy
#23. To my way of thinking, no one can live in the grandest cathedral on earth, the Rocky Mountains, and not know that there's someone bigger than man in charge of the world. #Quote by Mary Connealy
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Sadie Jones
#24. I'm never happy with what I've written. You imagine, before you start, there's a cathedral, and the moment it starts on the page, it's a garden shed. And then you just try to make it the best shed you can. #Quote by Sadie Jones
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Marty Stuart
#25. I call this my church house trilogy. Souls' Chapel really was music from the Mississippi Delta, which to me is a church within itself. The Delta is the church of American Roots music. The Badlands is a cathedral without a top on it. And the Ryman has been called the Mother Church of Country Music, but to me it's the Mother Church of American Music. If you can think it up, it's been done there. In my mind, this is kind of a spiritual odyssey as much as anything else, and I had the settings of three churches to make it in. #Quote by Marty Stuart
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Dan Castellaneta
#26. The voice doesn't take a lot of effort now, but in the beginning it was hard to try to find a voice. The one I settled on was just easier to do for a half-hour. #Quote by Dan Castellaneta
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Scott Cunningham
#27. That perhaps is at the core of Wicca--it is a joyous union with nature. The earth is a manifestation of divine energy. Wicca's temples are flower-splashed meadows, forests, beaches, and deserts. When a Wicca is outdoors, she or he is actually surrounded by sanctity, much as is a Christian when entering a church or cathedral. #Quote by Scott Cunningham
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Betty Greene
#28. I believe that love is better than hate. And that there is more nobility in building a chicken coop than in destroying a cathedral. #Quote by Betty Greene
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Shane Solerno
#29. A writer writes alone in a room with no distractions. The minute he's distracted he loses the cathedral in which he must perform, which is himself. #Quote by Shane Solerno
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Dan Castellaneta
#30. It's a different way of getting across an emotion. You're trying to get it across to the animator because the animator is inspired by the voicetrack in terms of how to animate the character. #Quote by Dan Castellaneta
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Jeannette Walls
#31. Living there [Horse Mesa] was like living in a natural cathedral. Waking up every morning, you walked outside and looked down at the blue lake, then up at the sandstone cliffs
those awe-inspiring layers of red and yellow rock shaped over the millennia, with dozens of black-streaked crevices that temporarily became waterfalls after rainstorms. #Quote by Jeannette Walls
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Peter R. Kann
#32. We don't claim perfection; even the best journalism is but a first draft of history. But we bring to the challenge certain basic beliefs that aren't much in fashion these days. We believe facts are facts and that they are ascertainable through honest, open-minded and diligent reporting. We thus believe that truth is attainable by laying fact upon fact, much like the construction of a cathedral. News, in short, is not merely a matter of views. And truth is not merely in the eye of the beholder.
[Letter From the Publisher: A Report to The Wall Street Journal's Readers, 12 January, 1993] #Quote by Peter R. Kann
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Carrie Fisher
#33. Sometimes she'd just walk around the city alone. Watch the people, smell the food, the bus exhaust, the smoke coming up through the grating. She'd feel protected somehow, found a sense of belonging in the hectic sprawl. And the next minute she'd feel like the one who couldn't break the code, hit the right stride, catch the wave. Potholes and traffic and bums, oh my. With all the honking and the hum of movement, the living, breathing blur of noise gently pressing in on her, the great purr of the Metropolitan Cat turning into a dull roar. She'd feel so silent on the inside, her head as quiet as a stretch of sand, a cathedral silently worshipping the life that was all around her, storing it up for later when she needed some 'too much' to draw upon. #Quote by Carrie Fisher
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Dan Castellaneta
#34. If the Bible has taught us nothing else, and it hasn't, it's that girls should stick to girls sports, such as hot oil wrestling, foxy boxing, and such and such. #Quote by Dan Castellaneta
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Dan Castellaneta
#35. After years of doing impressions, its time for a change. #Quote by Dan Castellaneta
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Dan Castellaneta
#36. To many, Homer may appear lazy and a loser, but he's just much misguided. He's boorish, sure, but well meaning and, I guess, the one thing we have in common is the pursuit of lousy diets. #Quote by Dan Castellaneta
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Edward Abbey
#37. High above our heads the owl hoots under the lost moon. A pre-dawn wind comes sifting and sighing through the cottonwood trees; the sound of their dry, papery leaves is like the murmur of distant water, or like the whispering of ghosts in an ancient, empty, condemned cathedral. #Quote by Edward Abbey
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Cheryl Zelenka
#38. Will you permit God to stir the Holy Spirit within you today? Are you ready to seek out His perfect will for your life, even if it is contrary to your present hopes, dreams, and desires? Will you submit to any necessary change or refinement the Spirit exposes and requires, so that you may live a more serviceable and righteous witness for Christ? A major heart remodel may be necessary. The renovations could take many, many years to complete but the cathedral He creates within your very being will be magnificent. May His desire for your life be yours as well, from this very moment and throughout all of eternity. #Quote by Cheryl Zelenka
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Frank Lloyd Wright
#39. Regard it as just as desirable to build a chicken house as to build a cathedral. #Quote by Frank Lloyd Wright
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Rachel Joyce
#40. He visited the cathedral, and sat in its chilled light, pouring like water from above. He reminded himself that centuries ago men had built churches, bridges, and ships, all of them a leap of madness and faith, if you thought about it. #Quote by Rachel Joyce
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Jenkin Lloyd Jones
#41. The cathedral, at its noblest, is the best outward symbol of the spiritual nature of man, as it is also the most suggestive measure and prophecy of the corporate life of man. #Quote by Jenkin Lloyd Jones
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#42. The "Avenue," so called by the Newbridge people, was a stretch of road four or five hundred yards long, completely arched over with huge, wide-spreading apple-trees, planted years ago by an eccentric old farmer. Overhead was one long canopy of snowy fragrant bloom. Below the boughs the air was full of a purple twilight and far ahead a glimpse of painted sunset sky shone like a great rose window at the end of a cathedral aisle. #Quote by L.M. Montgomery
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Blake Charlton
#43. All my life, I've been trying to fill an emptiness inside. But that emptiness ... I've built myself around it. Filling it in would be like filling in the empty space within a cathedral. #Quote by Blake Charlton
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Hilary Mantel
#44. Some say the Tudors transcend this history, bloody and demonic as it is: that they descend from Brutus through the line of Constantine, son of St Helena, who was a Briton. Arthur, High King of Britain, was Constantine's grandson. He married up to three women, all called Guinevere, and his tomb is at Glastonbury, but you must understand that he is not really dead, only waiting his time to come again.

His blessed descendant, Prince Arthur of England, was born in the year 1486, eldest son of Henry, the first Tudor king. This Arthur married Katharine the princess of Aragon, died at fifteen and was buried in Worcester Cathedral. If he were alive now, he would be King of England. His younger brother Henry would likely be Archbishop of Canterbury, and would not (at least, we devoutly hope not) be in pursuit of a woman of whom the cardinal hears nothing good: a woman to whom, several years before the dukes walk in to despoil him, he will need to turn his attention; whose history, before ruin seizes him, he will need to comprehend.

Beneath every history, another history. #Quote by Hilary Mantel
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Thomas Friedman
#45. Every sport needs its temple, its cathedral. #Quote by Thomas Friedman
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Thomas Lux

is not silent, it is a speaking-

out-loud voice in your head; it is *spoken*,

a voice is *saying* it

as you read. It's the writer's words,

of course, in a literary sense

his or her "voice" but the sound

of that voice is the sound of *your* voice.

Not the sound your friends know

or the sound of a tape played back

but your voice

caught in the dark cathedral

of your skull, your voice heard

by an internal ear informed by internal abstracts

and what you know by feeling,

having felt. It is your voice

saying, for example, the word "barn"

that the writer wrote

but the "barn" you say

is a barn you know or knew. The voice

in your head, speaking as you read,

never says anything neutrally- some people

hated the barn they knew,

some people love the barn they know

so you hear the word loaded

and a sensory constellation

is lit: horse-gnawed stalls,

hayloft, black heat tape wrapping

a water pipe, a slippery

spilled *chirr* of oats from a split sack,

the bony, filthy haunches of cows...

And "barn" is only a noun- no verb

or subject has entered into the sentence yet!

The voice you he #Quote by Thomas Lux
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Francis Collins
#47. The God of the Bible is also the God of the genome. He can be worshipped in the cathedral or in the laboratory. His creation is majestic, awesome, intricate, and beautiful. #Quote by Francis Collins
Castellaneta Cathedral quotes by Barbara Brown Taylor
#48. Come to think of it, I do know one preacher who tried something like that - from the pulpit of a cathedral in a major city, no less. I do not remember what the subject of her sermon was, only the response to it. She must have suggested that the Christian way was one among many ways to God (a wave and not the ocean), because afterward a man came up to her and said, 'If God isn't partial to Christianity, then what am I doing here?'

I wish ordinary Christians took exams, so I could put that question on the final. As natural as it may be to want to play on the winning team, the wish to secure divine favoritism strikes me as the worst possible reason to practice any religion. If the man who asked that question could not think of a dozen better reasons to be a Christian than that, indeed, was he doing there? #Quote by Barbara Brown Taylor
