All that we are is the result of what we have thought; it is founded on our thoughts, it is made up our thoughts. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him, as the wheel follows the foot of him who draws the carriage.
All that you get you may put in your eye, and see never the worse.
All that's bright must fade -
The brightest still the fleetest;
All that's sweet was made
But to be lost when sweetest.
All the Armes of England will not arme feare.
George Herbert, Jacula Prudentum
All the arts which belong to polished life have some common tie, and are connected as it were by some relationship.
All the arts, which have a tendency to raise man in the scale of being, have a certain common band of union, and are connected, if I may be allowed to say so, by blood-relationship with one another.
All the best things and treasures of this world are not to be produced by each generation for itself; but we are all intended, not to carve our work in snow that will melt, but each and all of us to be continually rolling a great white gathering snow-ball, higher and higher, larger and larger, along the Alps of human power.
All the blessings of a household come through the wife, therefore should her husband honour her.
All the bread, I have eaten, was not bak'd in one oven.
All the carts that come to Crowland are shod with silver.
All the colours of the rainbow.
All the contagion of the south light on you,
You shames of Rome! you herd of - boils and plagues
Plaster you o'er; that you may be abhorr'd
Further than seen, and one infect another
Against the wind a mile!
All the craft is in the catching.
All the crimes on earth do not destroy so much of the human race, nor alienate so much property as drunkenness.
All the day you'll have good luck.
All the dogs follow the salt bitch.
All the elements, whose aid man calls in, will sometimes become his masters.
All the ends of human felicity are secured without revenge, for without it we are permitted to restore ourselves; and therefore it is against natural reason to do an evil that no way co-operates the proper and perfective end of human nature. And he is a miserable person, whose good is the evil of his neighbor; and he that revenges in many cases does worse than he that did the injury; in all cases as bad.
All the fairy tales of Aladdin, or the invisible Gyges, or the talisman that opens kings' palaces, or the enchanted halls underground or in the sea, are only fictions to indicate the one miracle of intellectual enlargement.
All the fat is in the fire.
All the glory and beauty of Christ are manifested within, and there He delights to dwell; His visits there are frequent, His condescension amazing, His conversation sweet, His comforts refreshing; and the peace that He brings passeth all understanding.
Thomas à Kempis
All the good maxims which are in the world fail when applied to one's self.
All the good of which humanity is capable is comprised in obedience.
John Stuart Mill
All the good things of this world are no further good to us than as they are of use; and whatever we may heap up to give to others, we enjoy only as much as we can use, and no more.
All the graces of Christianity always go together. They so go together that where there is one, there are all, and where one is wanting, all are wanting. Where there is faith, there are love, and hope, and humility; and where there is love, there is also trust; and where there is a holy trust in God, there is love to God; and where there is a gracious hope, there also is a holy fear of God.
All the great captains have performed vast achievements by conforming with the rule of art - by adjusting efforts to obstacles.
All the honesty is in the parting.
All the infections that the sun sucks up
From bogs, fens, flats, on Prosper fall, and make him
By inch-meal a disease!
All the joys in the world cannot take one grey hair out of our heads.
All the joys of earth will not assuage our thirst for happiness; while a single grief suffices to shroud life in a sombre veil, and smite it with nothingness at all points.
All the keys don't hang at one man's girdle.
All the keys hang not at one man's girdle.
All the known world, excepting only savage nations, is governed by books.
All the levers you can bring will not heave it up.
All the maids of Camberwell
may dance in an egg-shell:
for there are no maids in that well.
All the makers of dictionaries, all compilers who do nothing else than repeat backwards and forwards the opinions, the errors, the impostures, and the truths already printed, we may term plagiarists; but honest plagiarists, who arrogate not the merit of invention.
All the means of action, the shapeless masses - the materials - lie everywhere about us. What we need is the celestial fire to change the flint into transparent crystal, bright and clear. That fire is genius!
All the months in the year
curse a fair Februeer.
All the operations of Nature are gradual.
All the other passions condescend at times to accept the inexorable logic of facts; but jealousy looks facts straight in the face, ignores them utterly, and says that she knows a great deal better than they can tell her.
All the panes are hung with frost
Wild wizard-work of silver lace.
T. B. Aldrich
All the past of Time reveals
A bridal dawn of thunder-peals,
Whenever Thought hath wedded Fact.
All the performances of human art, at which we look with praise or wonder, are instances of the resistless force of perseverance; it is by this that the quarry becomes a pyramid, and that distant countries are united by canals. If a man was to compare the effect of a single stroke of a pickaxe, or of one impression of the spade, with the general design and last result, he would be overwhelmed with the sense of their disproportion; yet those petty operations, incessantly continued, in time surmount the greatest difficulties, and mountains are leveled and oceans bounded, by the slender force of human beings.
All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand.
All the poets are indebted more or less to those who have gone before them; even Homer's originality has been questioned, and Virgil owes almost as much to Theocritus, in his Pastorals, as to Homer, in his Heroics; and if our own countryman, Milton, has soared above both Homer and Virgil, it is because he has stolen some feathers from their wings.
All the principles which religion teaches, and all the habits which it forms, are favorable to strength of mind. It will be found that whatever purifies fortifies also the heart.
All the religions known in the world are founded, so far as they relate to man or the unity of man, as being all of one degree. Whether in heaven or in hell, or in whatever state man may be supposed to exist hereafter, the good and the bad are the only distinctions.
All the scholastic scaffolding falls, as a ruined edifice, before one single word - faith.
All the sobriety which religion needs or requires is that which real earnestness produces.
All the soul
Of man is resolution; which expires
Never from valiant men, till their last breath;
And then with it, like a flame extinguish'd
For want of matter; it does not die, but
Rather ceases to live.
