Famous quotes containing the word world:

    Oh, what a might is this whose single frown
    Doth shake the world as it would shake it down?
    Which all from nothing fet, from nothing all;
    Hath all on nothing set, lets nothing fall.
    Gave all to nothing man indeed, whereby
    Through nothing man all might Him glorify.
    Edward Taylor (1645–1729)
