Famous quotes containing the words paul and/or works:

    Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man or man independent of woman. For just as woman came from man, so man comes through woman; but all things come from God.
    Bible: New Testament, 1 Corinthians 11:11.

    In v. 9, Paul wrote “Neither was man created for woman, but woman for man.”

    Only the more uncompromising of the mystics still seek for knowledge in a silent land of absolute intuition, where the intellect finally lays down its conceptual tools, and rests from its pragmatic labors, while its works do not follow it, but are simply forgotten, and are as if they never had been.
    Josiah Royce (1855–1916)
