Famous quotes containing the word sole:

    That perfect bliss and sole felicity,
    The sweet fruition of an earthly crown.
    Christopher Marlowe (1564–1593)

    To me the sole hope of human salvation lies in teaching Man to regard himself as an experiment in the realization of God, to regard his hands as God’s hand, his brain as God’s brain, his purpose as God’s purpose. He must regard God as a helpless Longing, which longed him into existence by its desperate need for an executive organ.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
