Famous quotes containing the word wounding:

    ... wounding God with his blue face,
    his tyranny, his absolute kingdom,
    with my aphrodisiac.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Nothing can be more wounding than a generous forgiveness.
    Samuel Richardson (1689–1761)

    ‘Alas!’ quoth he, ‘but newly born in fiery heats I fry,
    Yet none approach to warm their hearts or feel my fire but I.
    My faultless breast the furnace is, the fuel wounding thorns;
    Love is the fire, and sighs the smoke, the ashes shame and scorns;
    The fuel justice layeth on, and mercy blows the coals;
    The metal in this furnace wrought are men’s defiled souls;
    Robert Southwell (1561?–1595)
