Famous quotes containing the words vows and/or monastic:

    To maidens’ vows and swearing
    Henceforth no credit give,
    You may give them the hearing
    But never them believe.
    They are as false as fair,
    Unconstant, frail, untrue;
    George Wither (1588–1667)

    I like a church; I like a cowl;
    I love a prophet of the soul;
    And on my heart monastic aisles
    Fall like sweet strains, or pensive smiles;
    Yet not for all his faith can see
    Would I that cowled churchman be.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
