Famous quotes containing the words baker eddy, eddy, mary and/or baker:

    Audible prayer can never do the works of spiritual understanding, which regenerates; but silent prayer, watchfulness, and devout obedience enable us to follow Jesus’ example. Long prayers, superstition, and creeds clip the strong pinions of love, and clothe religion in human forms. Whatever materializes worship hinders man’s spiritual growth and keeps him from demonstrating his power over error.
    —Mary Baker Eddy (1821–1910)

    The small perplexities of small minds eddy and boil about you. Confident from the experience that has led you out of these same dangers, you attack each problem as it appears, unafraid.
    Alice Foote MacDougall (1867–1945)

    A beautiful woman is born Queen of men and women both, as Mary Stuart was born Queen of Scots, whether men or women.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    He has conferred on the practice of vacillation the aura of statesmanship.
    —Kenneth Baker (b. 1934)
