Famous quotes containing the word miraculous:

    Don’t they know that God gave them
    their miraculous sickness
    like a shield, like armor
    and if their eyes are in the wrong
    part of their heads, they shouldn’t complain?
    What are they doing seeing their doctors
    when the world’s up for grabs.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    The light by which we see in this world comes out from the soul of the observer. Wherever any noble sentiment dwelt, it made the faces and houses around to shine. Nay, the powers of this busy brain are miraculous and illimitable.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    To lose sensibility, to see what one sees,
    As if sight had not its own miraculous thrift,
    To hear only what one hears, one meaning alone,
    As if the paradise of meaning ceased
    To be paradise, it is this to be destitute.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
