Famous quotes containing the word supporting:

    It is handsomer to remain in the establishment better than the establishment, and conduct that in the best manner, than to make a sally against evil by some single improvement, without supporting it by a total regeneration.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I hope you will be benefitted by your churchgoing. Where the habit does not Christianize, it generally civilizes. That is reason enough for supporting churches, if there were no higher.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    There would be no supporting life were we to feel quite as poignantly for others as we do for ourselves.
    Samuel Richardson (1689–1761)
