... the distance is commonly very great between actual performances and speculative possibility. It is natural to suppose, that as much as has been done to-day may be done to-morrow; but on the morrow some difficulty emerges or some external impediment obstructs. Indolence, interruption, business, and pleasure; all take their turns of retardation; and every long work is lengthened by a thousand causes that can, and ten thousand that cannot, be recounted. Perhaps no extensive and multifarious performance was ever effected within the term originally fixed in the undertaker's mind. He that runs against Time, has an antagonist not subject to casualties.
From Samuel Johnson's Lives of the Poets series, published in 3 volumes between 1779 and 1781, on Alexander Pope

On the basis of his work each person is fully entitled to consider himself a part owner of the great workbench at which he is working with everyone else. A way toward that goal could be found by associating labor with the ownership of capital joint ownership of the means of work, sharing by the workers in the management and/or profits of businesses, so-called shareholding by labor, etc.Pope John Paul II Great Pope Sayings By Pope John Paul II: On the basis of his work each person is fully entitled to consider himself a

I give my vote for Mr. Johnson to fill that great and arduous post. And I hereby declare that I make a total surrender of all my rights and privileges in the English language, as a freeborn British subject, to the said Mr. Johnson, during the term of his dictatorship. Nay more; I will not only obey him, like an old Roman, as my dictator, but, like a modern Roman, I will implicitly believe in him as my pope, and hold him to be infallible while in the chair; but no longer.Philip Dormer Stanhope Chesterfield Great Pope Sayings By Philip Dormer Stanhope Chesterfield: I give my vote for Mr. Johnson to fill that great and arduous post.

If animals had a Pope," Major Thompson said to me, "their Vatican would be in London. And if by some dire submarine cataclysm that noble vessel, Great Britain, were to be shipwrecked and start to founder, believe me, there would surely be somebody in Westminster to cry from the top of the Tower: "Dogs first!Pierre Daninos Great Pope Sayings By Pierre Daninos: If animals had a Pope," Major Thompson said to me, "their Vatican would be in

If we let Christ into our lives, we lose nothing, nothing, absolutely nothing of what makes life free, beautiful, and great. No! Only in this friendship are the doors of life opened wide. Only in this friendship is the great potential of human existence truly revealed.Pope Benedict XVI Great Pope Sayings By Pope Benedict XVI: If we let Christ into our lives, we lose nothing, nothing, absolutely nothing of what
What does it mean to offer something up? Those who did so were convinced that they could insert these little annoyances into Christ's great "compassion" so that they somehow became part of the treasury of compassion so greatly needed by the human race. In this way, even the small inconveniences of daily life could acquire meaning and contribute to the economy of good and of human love. Maybe we should consider whether it might be judicious to revive this practice ourselves.Pope Benedict XVI Great Pope Sayings By Pope Benedict XVI: What does it mean to offer something up? Those who did so were convinced that
foreign Tyrants and of Nymphs at home; Here thou, great ANNA! whom three realms obey. Dost sometimes counsel take - and sometimes Tea. Hither the heroes and the nymphs resort, To taste awhile the pleasures of a Court; 10 In various talk th' instructive hours they past, Who gave the ball, or paid the visit last; One speaks the glory of the British Queen, And one describes a charming Indian screen; A third interprets motions, looks, and eyes; 15 At ev'ry word a reputation dies.Alexander Pope Great Pope Sayings By Alexander Pope: foreign Tyrants and of Nymphs at home; Here thou, great ANNA! whom three realms obey.
We live our lives by philosophies, amid worldly affairs and occupations that totally absorb us and are a great distance from the manger. In all kinds of ways, God has to prod us and reach out to us again and again, so that we can manage to escape from the muddle of our thoughts and activities and discover the way that leads to him. But a path exists for all of us. The Lord provides everyone with tailor-made signals.Pope Benedict XVI Great Pope Sayings By Pope Benedict XVI: We live our lives by philosophies, amid worldly affairs and occupations that totally absorb us
Our faith is well founded; but it is necessary that this faith become part of our lives. A great effort must therefore be made in order for all Christians to transform themselves into 'witnesses,' ready and able to shoulder the commitment of testifying - always and to everyone - to the hope that animates them.Pope Benedict XVI Great Pope Sayings By Pope Benedict XVI: Our faith is well founded; but it is necessary that this faith become part of
Novak was saying that the pope's message was in part: You are not nothing; you are a great deal. God made you in his image, and he calls you to be like him. And so you must walk forward in to the world each day with confidence and humility. This reminded me of what a woman in Bible study said once. Walk with pride, for you are the daughter of a king.Peggy Noonan Great Pope Sayings By Peggy Noonan: Novak was saying that the pope's message was in part: You are not nothing; you

The great movement of apostasy being organized in every country for the establishment of a One-World Church which shall have neither dogmas, nor hierarchy, neither discipline for the mind, nor curb for the passions, and which, under the pretext of freedom and human dignity, would bring back to the world (if such a Church could overcome) the reign of legalized cunning and force, and the oppression of the weak, and of all those who toil and suffer. [ ... ] Indeed, the true friends of the people are neither revolutionaries, nor innovators: they are traditionalists.Pope Pius X Great Pope Sayings By Pope Pius X: The great movement of apostasy being organized in every country for the establishment of a
The difference is as great between The optics seeing as the objects seen. All manners take a tincture from our own; Or come discolor'd through out passions shown; Or fancy's beam enlarges, multiplies, Contracts, inverts, and gives ten thousand dyes.Alexander Pope Great Pope Sayings By Alexander Pope: The difference is as great between The optics seeing as the objects seen. All manners
Hope humbly then; with trembling pinions soar;
Wait the great teacher, Death, and God adore;

But gives that hope to be thy blessing now.

ADUNCITY (ADU'NCITY) n.s.[aduncitas, Lat.]Crookedness; flexure inwards; hookedness.

Do not be afraid to dream great things!Pope Francis Great Pope Sayings By Pope Francis: Do not be afraid to dream great things!
Without prolonged moments of adoration, of prayerful encounter with the word, of sincere conversation with the Lord, our work easily becomes meaningless; we lose energy as a result of weariness and difficulties, and our fervor dies out. The Church urgently needs the deep breath of prayer, and to my great joy groups devoted to prayer and intercession, the prayerful reading of God's word and the perpetual adoration of the Eucharist are growing at every level of ecclesial life.Pope Francis Great Pope Sayings By Pope Francis: Without prolonged moments of adoration, of prayerful encounter with the word, of sincere conversation with
Given that there are seven billion people living on this earth, there is a consistent quantity of imbecile or idiot, okay. Previously, these people could express themselves only with their friends or at the bar after two or three glasses of something, and they said every silliness, and people laughed. Now they have the possibility to show up on the internet. And so, on the internet, along with the messages of a lot of interesting and important people - even the Pope is writing on Twitter - we have a great quantity of idiots.Umberto Eco Great Pope Sayings By Umberto Eco: Given that there are seven billion people living on this earth, there is a consistent
I wish to make add my voice to the cry which rises up with increasing anguish from every part of the world, from every people, from the heart of each person, from the one great family which is humanity: it is the cry for peace!Pope Francis Great Pope Sayings By Pope Francis: I wish to make add my voice to the cry which rises up with increasing

We in the Church
I have great love for St. Joseph, because he is a man of silence and strength. On my table I have a statue of St. Joseph sleeping. Even when he is asleep, he is taking care of the church! Yes! We know that he can do that. So when I have a problem, a difficulty, I write a little note and I put it underneath St. Joseph, so that he can dream about it! In other words I tell him: pray for this problem!Pope Francis Great Pope Sayings By Pope Francis: I have great love for St. Joseph, because he is a man of silence and

But, in order to be the community of Jesus' poor, the Church has constant need of the great ascetics. She needs the communities that follow them, living out poverty and simplicity so as to display to us the truth of the Beatitudes. She needs them to wake everyone up to the fact that possession is all about service, to contrast the culture of affluence with the culture of inner freedom, and thereby to create the conditions for social justice as well.Pope Benedict XVI Great Pope Sayings By Pope Benedict XVI: But, in order to be the community of Jesus' poor, the Church has constant need
None of us is alone in this world; each of us is a vital piece of the great mosaic of humanity as a whole.Pope John Paul II Great Pope Sayings By Pope John Paul II: None of us is alone in this world; each of us is a vital piece
Christianity is not a new philosophy or new morality. We are Christians only if we encounter Christ ... Only in this personal relationship with Christ, only in this encounter with the Risen One do we really become Christians ... Therefore, let us pray to the Lord to enlighten us, so that, in our world, he will grant us the encounter with his presence, and thus give us a lively faith, an open heart, and great charity for all, capable of renewing the world.Pope Benedict XVI Great Pope Sayings By Pope Benedict XVI: Christianity is not a new philosophy or new morality. We are Christians only if we
The parish is not an outdated institution; precisely because it possesses great flexibility, it can assume quite different contours depending on the openness and missionary creativity of the pastor and the community.Pope Francis Great Pope Sayings By Pope Francis: The parish is not an outdated institution; precisely because it possesses great flexibility, it can
Since Christ is the only way to the Father, in order to highlight His living and saving presence in the Church and the world, the International Eucharistic Congress will take place in Rome, on the occasion of the Great Jubilee. The Year 2000 will be intensely Eucharistic: in the Sacrament of the Eucharist the Savior, who took flesh in Mary's womb twenty centuries ago, continues to offer Himself to humanity as the source of Divine LifePope John Paul II Great Pope Sayings By Pope John Paul II: Since Christ is the only way to the Father, in order to highlight His living
My great idea is that we must forgive the Pope. First of all, he needs it more than anyone else. Besides, it is the only way of placing oneself above him.Albert Camus Great Pope Sayings By Albert Camus: My great idea is that we must forgive the Pope. First of all, he needs
If one has the answers to all the questions - that is the proof that God is not with him. It means that he is a false prophet using religion for himself. The great leaders of the people of God, like Moses, have always left room for doubt. You must leave room for the Lord, not for our certainties; we must be humble.Pope Francis Great Pope Sayings By Pope Francis: If one has the answers to all the questions - that is the proof that
We too need to protect, guide, and encourage our young people, helping them to build a society worthy of their great spiritual and cultural heritage. Specifically, we need to see each child as a gift to be welcomed, cherished, and protected. And we need to care for our young people, not allowing them to be robbed of hope and condemned to life on the streets.Pope Francis Great Pope Sayings By Pope Francis: We too need to protect, guide, and encourage our young people, helping them to build
It's a great responsibility before God, the judge who guides us, who draws us to truth and good, and in this sense the church must unmask evil, rendering present the goodness of God, rendering present his truth, the truly infinite for which we are thirsty.Pope Benedict XVI Great Pope Sayings By Pope Benedict XVI: It's a great responsibility before God, the judge who guides us, who draws us to
For God's sake, madam, when you write to me, talk of yourself; there is nothing I so much desire to hear of; talk a great deal of yourself, that she who I always thought talked best may speak upon the best subject.

The dramatic threat of ecological breakdown is teaching us the extent to which greed and selfishness are contrary to the order of creation ... A given culture reveals its understanding of life through the choices it makes in production and consumption ... a great deal of educational and cultural work is urgently needed, including the education of consumers in the responsible use of their power of choice ...Pope John Paul II Great Pope Sayings By Pope John Paul II: The dramatic threat of ecological breakdown is teaching us the extent to which greed and
How many times do we hear: 'Come on, you Christians, be a little bit more normal, like other people, be reasonable!' This is real snake charmer's talk: 'Come on, just be like this, okay? A little bit more normal, don't be so rigid ... ' But behind it is this: 'Don't come here with your stories, that God became man!' The Incarnation of the Word, that is the scandal behind all of this! We can do all the social work we want, and they will say: 'How great the Church is, it does such good social work. But if we say that we are doing it because those people are the flesh of Christ, then comes the scandal. And that is the truth, that is the revelation of Jesus: that presence of Jesus incarnate.Pope Francis Great Pope Sayings By Pope Francis: How many times do we hear: 'Come on, you Christians, be a little bit more
Dear young people, do not bury your talents, the gifts that god has given you! Do not be afraid to dream of great things!Pope Francis Great Pope Sayings By Pope Francis: Dear young people, do not bury your talents, the gifts that god has given you!
Concern for the fate of the great rivers of the earth must lead us to reflect soberly on the model of development which our society is pursuing. A purely economic and technological understanding of progress, to the extent that it fails to acknowledge its intrinsic limitations and to take into consideration the integral good of humanity, will inevitably provoke negative consequences for individuals, peoples and creation itself.Pope Benedict XVI Great Pope Sayings By Pope Benedict XVI: Concern for the fate of the great rivers of the earth must lead us to
It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness; He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; He is the beauty to which you are so attracted; it is He who provoked you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is He who urges you to shed the masks of a false life; it is He who reads in your heart your most genuine choices, the choices that others try to stifle.
It is Jesus who stirs in you the desire to do something great with your lives, the will to follow an ideal, the refusal to allow yourselves to be ground down by mediocrity, the courage to commit yourselves humbly and patiently to improving yourselves and society, making the world more human and more fraternal.
Pope John Paul II Great Pope Sayings By Pope John Paul II: It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness; He is waiting for

For me, it's a great joy to be together with priests: in the end, the bishop of Rome is the bishop and brother of all priests. His mandate is to confirm the brothers in the faith.Pope Benedict XVI Great Pope Sayings By Pope Benedict XVI: For me, it's a great joy to be together with priests: in the end, the
There cannot be forgotten the great possibilities of mass media in promoting dialogue, becoming vehicles for reciprocal knowledge, of solidarity and of peace. They become a powerful resource for good if used to foster understanding between peoples, a destructive 'weapon' if used to foster injustice and conflicts.Pope John Paul II Great Pope Sayings By Pope John Paul II: There cannot be forgotten the great possibilities of mass media in promoting dialogue, becoming vehicles
The new evangelization calls for followers of Christ who are unconditionally pro-life: who will proclaim, celebrate and serve the Gospel of life in every situation. A sign of hope is the increasing recognition that the dignity of human life must never be taken away, even in the case of someone who has done great evil ... I renew the appeal I made ... for a consensus to end the death penalty, which is both cruel and unnecessary.Pope John Paul II Great Pope Sayings By Pope John Paul II: The new evangelization calls for followers of Christ who are unconditionally pro-life: who will proclaim,
There is another important point: encountering the poor. If we step outside ourselves we find poverty. Today-it sickens the heart to say so-the discovery of a tramp who has died of the cold is not news. Today what counts as news is, maybe, a scandal. A scandal: ah, that is news! Today, the thought that a great many children do not have food to eat is not news. This is serious, this is serious! We cannot put up with this! Yet that is how things are. We cannot become starched Christians, those over-educated Christians who speak of theological matters as they calmly sip their tea.Pope Francis Great Pope Sayings By Pope Francis: There is another important point: encountering the poor. If we step outside ourselves we find
The most important truths always appear first as blasphemies or obscenities. That's why every great innovator is persecuted. And the sacraments look obscene, too, to an outsider. The eucharist is just sublimated cannibalism, to the unawakened. When the Pope kisses the feet of the laity, he looks like an old toe-queen to some people. The rites of Pan look like a suburban orgy.Robert Anton Wilson Great Pope Sayings By Robert Anton Wilson: The most important truths always appear first as blasphemies or obscenities. That's why every great
Nor public flame, nor private, dares to shine;
Nor human spark is left, nor glimpse divine!
Lo! thy dread empire, Chaos! is restored;
Light dies before thy uncreating word:
Thy hand, great Anarch! lets the curtain fall;
And universal darkness buries all.
Alexander Pope Great Pope Sayings By Alexander Pope: Nor public flame, nor private, dares to shine;Nor human spark is left, nor glimpse divine!Lo!
I don't know about being a Catholic anymore, though I had a great romance with the Church. But its male hierarchy causes me pain and distress. So I can't really pay too much attention. When that encyclical from the Pope - the one about contraception - began 'Dear Sons and Brothers' I figured it must be private mail and had nothing to do with me. So I didn't read it.Joan Hackett Great Pope Sayings By Joan Hackett: I don't know about being a Catholic anymore, though I had a great romance with

If we look to the saints, this great luminous wake with which God has passed through history, we truly see that here is a force for good that survives through millennia; here is truly light from light.Pope Benedict XVI Great Pope Sayings By Pope Benedict XVI: If we look to the saints, this great luminous wake with which God has passed
The great challenge facing us today is to learn once again how to talk to one another, not simply how to generate and consume information.Pope Francis Great Pope Sayings By Pope Francis: The great challenge facing us today is to learn once again how to talk to
The Most Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that none of those existing outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans, also Jews, heretics, and schismatics can ever be partakers of eternal life, but that they are to go into the eternal fire 'which was prepared for the devil and his angels' (Mt. 25:41) unless before death they are joined with Her ... No one, let his almsgiving be as great as it may, no one, even if he pour out his blood for the Name of Christ can be saved unless they abide within the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church.Pope Eugene IV Great Pope Sayings By Pope Eugene IV: The Most Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that none of those existing
I am more afraid of my own heart than of the pope and all his cardinals. I have within me the great pope, Self.Martin Luther Great Pope Sayings By Martin Luther: I am more afraid of my own heart than of the pope and all his
I would like especially to mention you, the women, wives and mothers of Paraguay, who at great cost and sacrifice were able to lift up a country defeated, devastated and laid low by an abominable war ... You lived through many difficult situations which, in the eyes of the world, would seem to discredit all faith. Yet, inspired and sustained by the Blessed Virgin, you continued to believe ... God bless your perseverance, God bless and encourage your faith, God bless the women of Paraguay, the most glorious women of America.Pope Francis Great Pope Sayings By Pope Francis: I would like especially to mention you, the women, wives and mothers of Paraguay, who
Every effort to make society sensitive to the importance of the family, is a great service to humanity.Pope John Paul II Great Pope Sayings By Pope John Paul II: Every effort to make society sensitive to the importance of the family, is a great
Today the great gift of God's Creation is exposed to serious dangers and lifestyles which can degrade it. Environmental pollution is making particularly unsustainable the lives of the poor of the world ... we must pledge ourselves to take care of creation and to share its resources in solidarity.Pope Benedict XVI Great Pope Sayings By Pope Benedict XVI: Today the great gift of God's Creation is exposed to serious dangers and lifestyles which
...when today as believers in our age we hear it said, a little enviously perhaps, that in the Middle Ages everyone without exception in our lands was a believer, it is a good thing to cast a glance behind the scenes, as we can today, thanks to historical research. This will tell us that even in those days there was the great mass of nominal believers and a relatively small number of people who had really entered into the inner movement of belief. It will show us that for many belief was only a ready-made mode of life, by which for them the exciting adventure really signified by the word credo was at least as much concealed as disclosed. This is simply because there is an infinite gulf between God and man; because man is fashioned in such a way that his eyes are only capable of seeing what is not God, and thus for man God is and always will be the essentially invisible, something lying outside his field of vision. ...Pope Benedict XVI Great Pope Sayings By Pope Benedict XVI: ...when today as believers in our age we hear it said, a little enviously perhaps,
God loves the lowly. When we live humbly, he takes our small efforts and creates great things.Pope Francis Great Pope Sayings By Pope Francis: God loves the lowly. When we live humbly, he takes our small efforts and creates
The unworthy successor of Peter who desires to benefit from the immeasurable wealth of Christ feels the great need of your assistance, your prayers, your sacrifice, and he most humbly asks this of you.Pope John Paul II Great Pope Sayings By Pope John Paul II: The unworthy successor of Peter who desires to benefit from the immeasurable wealth of Christ
If, presume not to God to scan; The proper study of Mankind is Man. Plac'd on this isthmus of a middle state, a being darkly wise, and rudely great.Alexander Pope Great Pope Sayings By Alexander Pope: If, presume not to God to scan; The proper study of Mankind is Man. Plac'd
The Holy Spirit is a great worker, not a 'trade unionist.' He is a great worker, and He works in us, always. He does this work of explaining the mystery of Jesus, and of giving us this sense of Christ.Pope Francis Great Pope Sayings By Pope Francis: The Holy Spirit is a great worker, not a 'trade unionist.' He is a great
I feel it urgent to state that, if the family is the sanctuary of life, the place where life is conceived and cared for, it is a horrendous contradiction when it becomes a place where life is rejected and destroyed. So great is the value of a human life, and so inalienable the right to life of an innocent child growing in the mother's womb, that no alleged right to one's own body can justify a decision to terminate that life, which is an end in itself and which can never be considered the "property" of another human being. The family protects human life in all its stages, including its last. Consequently, "those who work in healthcare facilities are reminded of the moral duty of conscientious objection. Similarly, the Church not only feels the urgency to assert the right to a natural death, without aggressive treatment and euthanasia", but likewise firmly rejects the death penalty.Pope Francis Great Pope Sayings By Pope Francis: I feel it urgent to state that, if the family is the sanctuary of life,
I like it when someone tells me 'I don't agree.' This is a true collaborator. When they say 'Oh, how great, how great, how great,' that's not useful.Pope Francis Great Pope Sayings By Pope Francis: I like it when someone tells me 'I don't agree.' This is a true collaborator.
When Pope Pius XII died, LIFE magazine carried a picture of him in his private study kneeling before a black Christ. What was the source of their information? All white people who have studied history and geography know that Christ was a black man. Only the poor, brainwashed American Negro has been made to believe that Christ was white, to maneuver him into worshiping the white man. After becoming a Muslim in prison, I read almost everything I could put my hands on in the prison library. I began to think back on everything I had read and especially with the histories, I realized that nearly all of them read by the general public have been made into white histories. I found out that the history-whitening process either had left out great things that black men had done, or some of the great black men had gotten whitened.Malcolm X Great Pope Sayings By Malcolm X: When Pope Pius XII died, LIFE magazine carried a picture of him in his private
The proof of love is in the works. Where love exists, it works great things. But when it ceases to act, it ceases to exist.Pope Gregory I Great Pope Sayings By Pope Gregory I: The proof of love is in the works. Where love exists, it works great things.
Creation is not a property, which we can rule over at will; or, even less, is the property of only a few: Creation is a gift, it is a wonderful gift that God has given us, so that we care for it and we use it for the benefit of all, always with great respect and gratitude.Pope Francis Great Pope Sayings By Pope Francis: Creation is not a property, which we can rule over at will; or, even less,
At every trifle take offense, that always shows great pride or little sense.Alexander Pope Great Pope Sayings By Alexander Pope: At every trifle take offense, that always shows great pride or little sense.

Liberty isn't liberalism, arbitrariness, but it's connected; it's conditioned by the great values of love and solidarity and in general by the good.Pope Benedict XVI Great Pope Sayings By Pope Benedict XVI: Liberty isn't liberalism, arbitrariness, but it's connected; it's conditioned by the great values of love
The pope has been called many things, historic figure, spiritual leader, moral force. But a growing chorus of voices has begun to refer to him as John Paul II the Great, in other words, as a saint.Chris Matthews Great Pope Sayings By Chris Matthews: The pope has been called many things, historic figure, spiritual leader, moral force. But a
The Church and the world have a great need of eucharistic worship. Jesus waits for us in this sacrament of love. Let us be generous with our time in going to meet Him in adoration and in contemplation that is full of faith and ready to make reparation for the great faults and crimes of the world.
