Famous quotes containing the words rivers of and/or rivers:

    Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly,
    nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the
    scornful.
    But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he
    meditate day and night.
    And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that
    bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither;
    and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
    Bible: Hebrew Psalm I (l. I, 1–3)

    As for evildoers, for them awaits a painful chastisement;
    but for those who believe, and do deeds
    of righteousness, they shall be admitted
    to gardens underneath which rivers flow,
    therein dwelling forever,
    by the leave of their Lord, their greeting
    therein: “Peace!”
    Qur’An. Abraham 14:28 (ed. Arthur J. Arberry, 1955)
