Vain mistaken mortals, who, valuing themselves on names and titles, suppose that the virtues of the mind must be attached to an empty sound, when every day's experience proves that birth is disgraced, titles rendered contemptible, and riches a curse, by the vices, meanness, and dissipation of its possessors!Eliza Parsons Disgrace Sayings By Eliza Parsons: Vain mistaken mortals, who, valuing themselves on names and titles, suppose that the virtues of

Leave us alone without books and we shall be lost and in confusion at once. We shall not know what to join on to, what to cling to, what to love and what to hate, what to respect and what to despise. We are oppressed at being men
men with a real individual body and blood, we are ashamed of it, we think it a disgrace and try to contrive to be some sort of impossible generalised man. We are stillborn, and for generations past have been begotten, not by living fathers, and that suits us better and better. We are developing a taste for it. Soon we shall contrive to be born somehow from an idea. But enough; I don't want to write more from Underground.
Fyodor Dostoyevsky Disgrace Sayings By Fyodor Dostoyevsky: Leave us alone without books and we shall be lost and in confusion at once.
If I profess with loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except that little point which the world and the Devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ. Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved, and to be steady on all the battlefield besides, is mere flight and disgrace if he flinches at that point.Martin Luther Disgrace Sayings By Martin Luther: If I profess with loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of
The girl you were died; the potion of death was what all of us women swallow sooner or later. Have you noticed how at puberty the Amazon-like energy we are born with fades and we turn into doubt-filled creatures with clipped wings? The woman left trapped in the silo is also you, a prisoner of the restrictions of adult life. The female condition is a disgrace, Isabel, it's like having rocks tied to your ankles so you can't fly.Isabel Allende Disgrace Sayings By Isabel Allende: The girl you were died; the potion of death was what all of us women

It is what is left to him," said Will. "Do you not recall what he says to Lucie? 'If it had been possible ... that you could have returned the love of the man you see before yourself- flung away, wasted, drunken, poor creature of misure as you know him to be- he would have been conscious this day and hour, in spite of his happiness, that he would bring you misery, bring you to sorrow and repetance, blight you, disgrace you, pull you down with himCassandra Clare Disgrace Sayings By Cassandra Clare: It is what is left to him," said Will. "Do you not recall what he
I, Milarepa, fear neither demons nor evils;
If they frightened Milarepa, to what avail
Would be his Realization and Enlightenment?

Ye ghosts and demons, enemies of the Dharma,
I welcome you today!
It is my pleasure to receive you!
I pray you, stay; do not hasten to leave;
We will discourse and play together.
Although you would be gone, stay the night;
We will pit the Black against the White Dharma,
And see who plays the best.
Before you came, you vowed to afflict me.
Shame and disgrace would follow
If you returned with this vow unfulfilled.
Garma C.C. Chang Disgrace Sayings By Garma C.C. Chang: I, Milarepa, fear neither demons nor evils;If they frightened Milarepa, to what availWould be his

But ah, to fish with a worm, and then not catch your fish! To fail with a fly is no disgrace: your art may have been impeccable, your patience faultless to the end. But the philosophy of worm-fishing is that of results, of having something tangible in your basket when the day's work is done.Bliss Perry Disgrace Sayings By Bliss Perry: But ah, to fish with a worm, and then not catch your fish! To fail

Fable
The mountain and the squirrel
Had a quarrel,
And the former called the latter, "little prig ":
Bun replied,
"You are doubtless very big;
But all sorts of things and weather
Must be taken in together
To make up a year,
And a sphere.
And I think it no disgrace
To occupy my place.
If I'm not so large as you,
You are not so small as I,
And not half so spry.
I'll not deny you make
A very pretty squirrel track;
Talents differ; all is well and wisely put;
If I cannot carry forests on my back,
Neither can you crack a nut.
Ralph Waldo Emerson Disgrace Sayings By Ralph Waldo Emerson: FableThe mountain and the squirrelHad a quarrel,And the former called the latter, "little prig ":Bun

The abbess may well try and force me to return to the convent, silent and in disgrace, but I will not go back. Not like this. Indeed, I can see no way I can ever return to the convent, for the abbess will not let me return in victory, and I refuse to do so in defeat.Robin LaFevers Disgrace Sayings By Robin LaFevers: The abbess may well try and force me to return to the convent, silent and
He was wild when he was young; a long while ago to be sure; but in the law of God, there is no statute of limitations. Ay, it must be that; the ghost of some old sin, the cancer of some concealed disgrace: punishment coming, PEDE CLAUDO, years after memory has forgotten and self-love condoned the fault.Robert Louis Stevenson Disgrace Sayings By Robert Louis Stevenson: He was wild when he was young; a long while ago to be sure; but
We are often deterred from crime by the disgrace of others.Horace Disgrace Sayings By Horace: We are often deterred from crime by the disgrace of others.
I have no other passion to keep me in breath. What avarice, ambition, quarrels, law suits do for others who, like me, have no particular vocation, love would much more commodiously do; it would restore to me vigilance, sobriety, grace, and the care of my person; it would reassure my countenance, so that the grimaces of old age, those deformed and dismal looks, might not come to disgrace it; would again put me upon sound and wise studies, by which I might render myself more loved and esteemed, clearing my mind of the despair of itself and of its use, and redintegrating it to itself; would divert me from a thousand troublesome thoughts, a thousand melancholic humours that idleness and the ill posture of our health loads us withal at such an age; would warm again, in dreams at least, the blood that nature is abandoning; would hold up the chin, and a little stretch out the nerves, the vigour and gaiety of life of that poor man who is going full drive towards his ruin.Michel De Montaigne Disgrace Sayings By Michel De Montaigne: I have no other passion to keep me in breath. What avarice, ambition, quarrels, law
What victims need are not self-produced positive statements but God's statements about his response to their pain. How can you be rid of these dysfunctional emotions and their effects? How can you be rid of your disgrace? God's grace to you dismantles the beliefs that give disgrace life. Grace re-creates what violence destroyed. Martin Luther writes that "the love of God does not find, but creates, that which is pleasing to it." One-way love is the change agent you need. Grace transforms and heals; and healing comes by hearing God's statements to you, not speaking your own statements to yourself.Justin S. Holcomb Disgrace Sayings By Justin S. Holcomb: What victims need are not self-produced positive statements but God's statements about his response to
It was not our war, but it would be our disgrace, our shame. The West was filling to declare a war over the price of oil, but when it came to the wholesale slaughter of human beings we folded our hands across our chests and tapped our heels, with great anticipation that Sunday's sporting events would be wonderfully entertainingBill Carter Disgrace Sayings By Bill Carter: It was not our war, but it would be our disgrace, our shame. The West

When we read or hear how some professed Christian has turned defaulter, or lapsed into drunkenness, or slipped from the communion table into open disgrace, it simply means than a human arm has broken.

The part of [Oscar] Wilde was exceptionally important to me; the man, his achievements, his wisdom, but his downfall, his disgrace and the tragic and bitter end to it have always fascinated, appalled and attracted me since childhood. It was he who first in some measure vindicated my sexuality.Stephen Fry Disgrace Sayings By Stephen Fry: The part of [Oscar] Wilde was exceptionally important to me; the man, his achievements, his

Whenever an animal is frightened, particularly a cat, it runs away to get over its disgrace. In the case of a feline such an experience of disgrace remains forever in its character and memory. Fear may take some time to teach, but once it has been learned it can rarely be shaken out of a creature. In the case of a man, thought can be re-educated and through thought his own character can be recast. But animals who are mostly victims of their own habits, unless we, their man-friends, take infinite pains, are rarely de-habituated. More than man, an animal's character is but the sum total of its habits. These are formed by violent emotions such as fear.Dhan Gopal Mukerji Disgrace Sayings By Dhan Gopal Mukerji: Whenever an animal is frightened, particularly a cat, it runs away to get over its
Humiliation is a guest that only comes to those who have made ready his resting-place, and will give him a fair welcome ... no one can disgrace you save yourself.Ouida Disgrace Sayings By Ouida: Humiliation is a guest that only comes to those who have made ready his resting-place,
One of the truths about suicide is that it's hardly ever about the future. It's the past the suicide can't face, and although disgrace appears to be the exception, the one instance where suicide seems to be about the future, even in Oedipus, it's her past Jocasta can't accept, once it's come to light.Charles D'Ambrosio Disgrace Sayings By Charles D'Ambrosio: One of the truths about suicide is that it's hardly ever about the future. It's
For, since the fall of Adam had brought disgrace upon all his posterity, God restores those, whom He separates as His own, so that their condition may be better than that of all other nations. At the same time it must be remarked, that this grace of renewal is effaced in many who have afterwards profaned itJohn Calvin Disgrace Sayings By John Calvin: For, since the fall of Adam had brought disgrace upon all his posterity, God restores

Riches, honors and pleasure are the sweets which destroy the mind's appetite for heavenly food; poverty, disgrace and pain are the bitters which restore it.George Horne Disgrace Sayings By George Horne: Riches, honors and pleasure are the sweets which destroy the mind's appetite for heavenly food;
I learned what education was expected to do for an individual. Before going there I had a good deal of the then rather prevalent idea among our people that to secure an education meant to have a good, easy time, free from all necessity for manual labor. At Hampton I not only learned that it was not a disgrace to labor, but learned to love labor, not alone for its financial value, but for labor's own sake and for the independence and self-reliance which the ability to do something which the world wants done brings. At that institution I got my first taste of what it meant to live a life of unselfishness, my first knowledge of the fact that the happiest individuals are those who do the most to make others useful and happy.Booker T. Washington Disgrace Sayings By Booker T. Washington: I learned what education was expected to do for an individual. Before going there I
If you are humble nothing will touch you, neither praise nor disgrace, because you know what you are.Mother Teresa Disgrace Sayings By Mother Teresa: If you are humble nothing will touch you, neither praise nor disgrace, because you know
If I wrote at all, I must throw myself headlong into the great political maelstrom, and would of course be swallowed up like a fishing-boat in the great Norway horror which decorated our school geographies; for no woman had ever done such a thing, and I could never again hold up my head under the burden of shame and disgrace which would be heaped upon me. But what matter? I had no children to dishonor; all save one who had ever loved me were dead, and she no longer needed me, and if the Lord wanted some one to throw into that gulf, no one could be better spared than I.Jane Swisshelm Disgrace Sayings By Jane Swisshelm: If I wrote at all, I must throw myself headlong into the great political maelstrom,
There is no peace because the making of peace is at least as costly as the making of war - at least as exigent, at least as disruptive, at least as liable to bring disgrace and prison and death in its wake.Daniel Berrigan Disgrace Sayings By Daniel Berrigan: There is no peace because the making of peace is at least as costly as
Except in a few well-publicized instances (enough to lend credence to the iconography painted on the walls of the media), the rigorous practice of rugged individualism usually leads to poverty, ostracism and disgrace. The rugged individualist is too often mistaken for the misfit, the maverick, the spoilsport, the sore thumb.Lewis H. Lapham Disgrace Sayings By Lewis H. Lapham: Except in a few well-publicized instances (enough to lend credence to the iconography painted on

Being self-taught is no disgrace; but being self-certified is another matter.Hugh Nibley Disgrace Sayings By Hugh Nibley: Being self-taught is no disgrace; but being self-certified is another matter.
However little you may esteem them as individuals, it is not pleasant to be looked upon as a liar and a hypocrite. To be thought to practice what you abhor. And to encourage the vices you would discountenance. To find your good intentions frustrated and your hands crippled by your supposed unworthiness, and to bring disgrace on the principles you profess.Anne Bronte Disgrace Sayings By Anne Bronte: However little you may esteem them as individuals, it is not pleasant to be looked

It is not enough for us to perform the works of virtue, exercising obedience, excepting poverty or disgrace or practicing humility or detachment in some other way; rather we should strive ceaselessly until we attain the essence and ground of virtue. And we can tell if we have attained this or not by asking whether we find ourselves inclined to virtue above all else and perform the works of virtue without prior preparation of the will, practicing virtue without the ulterior motive even of a great and good cause, so that the virtuous act in fact happen spontaneously on account of love of virtue and without asking 'what for?' Then and only then do we have the perfect possession of virtue.Meister Eckhart Disgrace Sayings By Meister Eckhart: It is not enough for us to perform the works of virtue, exercising obedience, excepting
The Veterans Administration is a scandal. It's corrupt, and what's going on is a disgrace. And, believe me, if I win, if I become president, that will end. The veterans will be treated properly.Donald Trump Disgrace Sayings By Donald Trump: The Veterans Administration is a scandal. It's corrupt, and what's going on is a disgrace.
Talk of heaven! ye disgrace earth.Henry David Thoreau Disgrace Sayings By Henry David Thoreau: Talk of heaven! ye disgrace earth.
Their famous attempt to make clothing of fig leaves perfectly illustrates the utter inadequacy of every human device ever conceived to try to cover shame. Human religion, philanthropy, education, self-betterment, self-esteem, and all other attempts at human goodness ultimately fail to provide adequate camouflage for the disgrace and shame of our fallen state. All the man-made remedies combined are no more effective for removing the dishonor of our sin than our first parents' attempts to conceal their nakedness with fig leaves. That's because masking over shame doesn't really deal with the problem of guilt before God. Worst of all, a full atonement for guilt is far outside the possibility of fallen men and women to provide for themselves.John F. MacArthur Jr. Disgrace Sayings By John F. MacArthur Jr.: Their famous attempt to make clothing of fig leaves perfectly illustrates the utter inadequacy of
Whatever ignominy or disgrace we have incurred, it is almost always in our power to reestablish our reputation.Francois De La Rochefoucauld Disgrace Sayings By Francois De La Rochefoucauld: Whatever ignominy or disgrace we have incurred, it is almost always in our power to
The interview took place in Miss Banks' private sitting room while Maia waited in the hall, and as soon as she saw Mr. Murray's face, Miss Minton knew there was no hope. She would not even be allowed to look after Maia during the holidays. She was in complete disgrace.
Miss Minton had spent the night with her sister and bought another corset, because the good times were gone.
Eva Ibbotson Disgrace Sayings By Eva Ibbotson: The interview took place in Miss Banks' private sitting room while Maia waited in the

This [Magna Carta] has been forced from the King. It constitutes an insult to the Holy See, a serious weakening of the royal power, a disgrace to the English nation, a danger to all Christendom, since this civil war obstructs the crusade. Therefore?we condemn the charter and forbid the King to keep it, or the barons and their supporters to make him do so, on pain of excommunication.Pope Innocent III Disgrace Sayings By Pope Innocent III: This [Magna Carta] has been forced from the King. It constitutes an insult to the
Those who know don't talk. Those who talk don't know. Close your mouth, block off your senses, blunt your sharpness, untie your knots, soften your glare, settle your dust. This is the primal identity. Be like the Tao. It can't be approached or withdrawn from, benefited or harmed, honored or brought into disgrace. It gives itself up continually. That is why it endures.Lao-Tzu Disgrace Sayings By Lao-Tzu: Those who know don't talk. Those who talk don't know. Close your mouth, block off

The coming of honor or disgrace must be a reflection of one's inner power.Xun Zi Disgrace Sayings By Xun Zi: The coming of honor or disgrace must be a reflection of one's inner power.
Dying for the world is not noble in anyway but a disgrace for the rest of the world itself, for those that don't do absolutely anything to support, help or even bleed. It's like going to war alone, while our friends cheer and applaud from the distance. It's not fun and doesn't make me proud in any way. Most so-called spiritual people in this world, are not spiritual, they think they are but they're braindead, they are living their own fantasies, their own Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings Stories, but not truly bleeding for life. And so, it's quite interesting when my friends do all they can to stop me from leaving them, from changing country, while at the same time, they give me no reason to justify being attached to them.Robin Sacredfire Disgrace Sayings By Robin Sacredfire: Dying for the world is not noble in anyway but a disgrace for the rest
I think what's going on in Guantanamo Bay and other places is a disgrace to the U.S.A. I wouldn't say it's the cause of terrorism, but it has given impetus and excuses to potential terrorists to lash out at our country and justify their despicable acts.Jimmy Carter Disgrace Sayings By Jimmy Carter: I think what's going on in Guantanamo Bay and other places is a disgrace to
It turns out to be eminently useful to have a disgrace in your past; Salem endures not only as a metaphor but as a vaccine and a taunt. It glares at us when fear paralyzes reason, when we overreact or overcorrect, when we hunt down or deliver up the alien or seditious.Stacy Schiff Disgrace Sayings By Stacy Schiff: It turns out to be eminently useful to have a disgrace in your past; Salem
That was a pretty fine Army that we had in 1965. By 1973, it was in tatters. It was a disgrace to the country and to itself, to its own heritage, really. So it's, you know, the Army belongs to all 307 million of us. It is our common possession, it's our common heritage. As goes the Army, so goes the republic.Rick Atkinson Disgrace Sayings By Rick Atkinson: That was a pretty fine Army that we had in 1965. By 1973, it was
Arthur Scargill's leadership of the miners' strike has been a disgrace. The price to be paid for his folly will be immense. He will have destroyed the N.U.M. as an effective fighting force within British trade unionism for the next 20 years. If kamikaze pilots were to form their own union, Arthur would be an ideal choice for leader.Jimmy Reid Disgrace Sayings By Jimmy Reid: Arthur Scargill's leadership of the miners' strike has been a disgrace. The price to be
Martyrs of a sort they were, these children, along with the town drunk, in his basketball sneakers and buttonless overcoat, draining blackberry brandy from a paper bag as he sat on his bench in Kazmierczak Square, risking nightly death by exposure; martyrs too of a sort were the men and women hastening to adulterous trysts, risking disgrace and divorce for their fix of motel love - all sacrificing the outer world to the inner, proclaiming with this priority that everything solid-seeming and substantial is in fact a dream, of less account than a merciful rush of feeling.John Updike Disgrace Sayings By John Updike: Martyrs of a sort they were, these children, along with the town drunk, in his
For each man kills the thing he loves yet each man does not die
he does not die a death of shame on a day of dark disgrace
nor have a noose about his neck, nor a cloth upon his face
nor drop feet foremost through the floor into an empty space
He does not sit with silent men who watch him night and day
Who watch him when he tries to weep and when he tries to pray
Who watch him lest himself should rob the prison of its prey
Oscar Wilde Disgrace Sayings By Oscar Wilde: For each man kills the thing he loves yet each man does not diehe does
But at three, four, five, and even six years the childish nature will require sports; now is the time to get rid of self-will in him, punishing him, but not so as to disgrace him.Plato Disgrace Sayings By Plato: But at three, four, five, and even six years the childish nature will require sports;
I myself and my wife - in order to escape the disgrace of deposition or capitulation - choose death. It is our wish to be burnt immediately on the spot where I have carried out the greatest part of my daily work in the course of a twelve years' service to my people.Adolf Hitler Disgrace Sayings By Adolf Hitler: I myself and my wife - in order to escape the disgrace of deposition or
Revenue and wealth do not bring disgrace ...Bruno Kreisky Disgrace Sayings By Bruno Kreisky: Revenue and wealth do not bring disgrace ...
Always remember how much more valuable is the strength of fortitude, than the grace of sensibility. Do not, however, confound fortitude with apathy; apathy cannot know the virtue. Remember, too, that one act of beneficence, one act of real usefulness, is worth all the abstract sentiment in the world. Sentiment is a disgrace, instead of an ornament, unless it lead us to good actions. The miser, who thinks himself respectable, merely because he possesses wealth, and thus mistakes the means of doing good, for the actual accomplishment of it, is not more blamable than the man of sentiment, without active virtue. You may have observed persons, who delight so much in this sort of sensibility to sentiment, which excludes that to the calls of any practical virtue, that they turn from the distressed, and, because their sufferings are painful to be contemplated, do not endeavour to relieve them. How despicable is that humanity, which can be contented to pity, where it might assuage!" St.Eliza Parsons Disgrace Sayings By Eliza Parsons: Always remember how much more valuable is the strength of fortitude, than the grace of
There is no disgrace in staying behind, not when it's the right thing.Nora Roberts Disgrace Sayings By Nora Roberts: There is no disgrace in staying behind, not when it's the right thing.
A rake is a composition of all the lowest, most ignoble, degrading, and shameful vices; they all conspire to disgrace his character, and to ruin his fortune; while wine and the pox content which shall soonest and most effectually destroy his constitution.Lord Chesterfield Disgrace Sayings By Lord Chesterfield: A rake is a composition of all the lowest, most ignoble, degrading, and shameful vices;
A regime responsible for such a scheme of mass killings was corrupt to the core and did not deserve to survive. It's a disgrace that we didn't overthrow it, but left it to be eradicated by our enemies.Johann Voss Disgrace Sayings By Johann Voss: A regime responsible for such a scheme of mass killings was corrupt to the core
We cultivate refinement without extravagance and knowledge without effeminacy; wealth we employ more for use than for show, and place the real disgrace of poverty not in owning to the fact but in declining the struggle against it. Our public men have, besides politics, their private affairs to attend to, and our ordinary citizens, though occupied with the pursuits of industry, are still fair judges of public matters; for, unlike any other nation, regarding him who takes no part in these duties not as unambitious but as useless, we Athenians are able to judge at all events if we cannot originate, and instead of looking on discussion as a stumbling-block in the way of action, we think it an indispensable preliminary to any wise action at all.Pericles Disgrace Sayings By Pericles: We cultivate refinement without extravagance and knowledge without effeminacy; wealth we employ more for use
The spectacles of pain and disgrace I see around me, the ignorance, the unthinking vice, the poverty and the lack of hope, and oh, the rain - the rain that falls on England and rots the grain, puts out the light in the man's eye and the light of learning too, for who can reason if Oxford is a giant puddle and Cambridge is washing away downstream, and who will enforce the laws if the judges are swimming for their lives?Hilary Mantel Disgrace Sayings By Hilary Mantel: The spectacles of pain and disgrace I see around me, the ignorance, the unthinking vice,
We have seen moral and religious leaders,
men who claim to be followers of Jesus,
fall into disgrace in the eyes of God and man, and worst of all we have seen the Gospel of Jesus Christ and twisted and distorted it by false teachers to accommodate the destructive morals and secular behavior of these times.

Labor is no disgrace.Hesiod Disgrace Sayings By Hesiod: Labor is no disgrace.
Nor when love is of this disinterested sort is there any disgrace in being deceived, but in every other case there is equal disgrace in being or not being deceived. For he who is gracious to his lover under the impression that he is rich, and is disappointed of his gains because he turns out to be poor, is disgraced all the same: for he has done his best to show that he would give himself up to any one's "uses base" for the sake of money; but this is not honourable. And on the same principle he who gives himself to a lover because he is a good man, and in the hope that he will be improved by his company, shows himself to be virtuous, even though the object of his affection turn out to be a villain, and to have no virtue; and if he is deceived he has committed a noble error. For he has proved that for his part he will do anything for anybody with a view to virtue and improvement, than which there can be nothing nobler.Plato Disgrace Sayings By Plato: Nor when love is of this disinterested sort is there any disgrace in being deceived,
The judiciary has fallen to a very low state in this country. I think your part of the country has suffered especially. The federal judges of the South are a disgrace to any country, and I'll be damned if I put any man on the bench of whose character and ability there is the least doubt.William Howard Taft Disgrace Sayings By William Howard Taft: The judiciary has fallen to a very low state in this country. I think your
A preacher may proclaim the grace of God with glorious orthodoxy, but if his life contradicts his doctrine he will disgrace the gospel of Christ (1 Tim 3:7).Ryan Fullerton Disgrace Sayings By Ryan Fullerton: A preacher may proclaim the grace of God with glorious orthodoxy, but if his life
What an utter disgrace it would be to find something truly magic and spend any time at all pretending and trying to convince yourself it is all just an unbelievably orchestrated and beautifully choreographed illusion.Tyler Knott Gregson Disgrace Sayings By Tyler Knott Gregson: What an utter disgrace it would be to find something truly magic and spend any
It's a burden to us even to be human beings-men with our own real body and blood; we are ashamed of it, we think it a disgrace and try to contrive to be some sort of impossible generalized man.Fyodor Dostoevsky Disgrace Sayings By Fyodor Dostoevsky: It's a burden to us even to be human beings-men with our own real body
As soon as I put my uniform on, the rest of my life solidified around me like a plaster cast. From that moment on, my friends were anyone who could put up with the disgrace; my occupation, any job from which I was not given the sack; my playground, any cafe or restaurant from which I was not barred or any street corner from which the police did not move me on.Quentin Crisp Disgrace Sayings By Quentin Crisp: As soon as I put my uniform on, the rest of my life solidified around
He was afraid he might say or do something that would offend King Stephen or Bishop Henry and turn them against Kingsbridge. French-born people often mocked the way the English spoke their language: what would they think of a Welsh accent? In the monastic world, Philip had always been judged by his piety, obedience, and devotion to God's work. Those things counted for nothing here, in the capital city of one of the greatest kingdoms in the world. Philip was out of his depth. He became oppressed by the feeling that he was some kind of impostor, a nobody pretending to be a somebody, and that he was sure to be found out in no time and sent home in disgrace.

poverty of any kind, except of conversation, appeared - but there, the deficiency was considerable. John Dashwood had not much to say for himself that was worth hearing, and his wife had still less. But there was no peculiar disgrace in this; for it was very much the case with the chief of their visitors, who almost all laboured under one or other of these disqualifications for being agreeable - Want of sense, either natural or improved - want of elegance - want of spirits - or want of temper.Jane Austen Disgrace Sayings By Jane Austen: poverty of any kind, except of conversation, appeared - but there, the deficiency was considerable.
The supposed astronomical proofs of the theory [of relativity], as cited and claimed by Einstein, do not exist. He is a confusionist. The Einstein theory is a fallacy. The theory that ether does not exist, and that gravity is not a force but a property of space can only be described as a crazy vagary, a disgrace to our age.Charles Lane Poor Disgrace Sayings By Charles Lane Poor: The supposed astronomical proofs of the theory [of relativity], as cited and claimed by Einstein,
It's an irony that growing inequality could mean more money for philanthropy. In the U.S., quite a few of the ultra-rich have taken to heart the 19th century industrialist and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie's comment that it's a disgrace to die wealthy.Geoff Mulgan Disgrace Sayings By Geoff Mulgan: It's an irony that growing inequality could mean more money for philanthropy. In the U.S.,
I regarded it more as an honor than a disgrace to be permitted to share this fate of the complete destruction of literary existence in Germany with such eminent contemporaries as Thomas Mann, Heinrich Mann, Werfel, Freud, Einstein, and many others whose work I consider incomparably more important than my own,Stefan Zweig Disgrace Sayings By Stefan Zweig: I regarded it more as an honor than a disgrace to be permitted to share
Do not so much be ashamed of that disgrace which proceeds from men's opinion as fly from that which comes from the truth.Epictetus Disgrace Sayings By Epictetus: Do not so much be ashamed of that disgrace which proceeds from men's opinion as
In general, I would think that at present prose writers are much in advance of the poets. In the old days, I read more poetry than prose, but now it is in prose where you find things being put together well, where there is great ambition, and equal talent. Poets have gotten so careless, it is a disgrace. You can't pick up a page. All the words slide off.William H Gass Disgrace Sayings By William H Gass: In general, I would think that at present prose writers are much in advance of
It would take more than long-stemmed roses to change my view that you're a despicable cowardy custard and a disgrace to a proud family. Your ancestors fought in the Crusades and were often mentioned in despatches, and you cringe like a salted snail at the thought of appearing as Santa Claus before an audience of charming children who wouldn't hurt a fly. It's enough to make an aunt turn her face to the wall and give up the struggle.P.G. Wodehouse Disgrace Sayings By P.G. Wodehouse: It would take more than long-stemmed roses to change my view that you're a despicable
