Famous quotes containing the word priests:

    Standing navies, as well as standing armies, serve to keep alive the spirit of war even in the meek heart of peace. In its very embers and smoulderings, they nourish that fatal fire, and half-pay officers, as the priests of Mars, yet guard the temple, though no god be there.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Wee image of my bonnie Betty,
    I fatherly will kiss and daut thee,
    As dear an’ near my heart I set thee
    Wi’ as guid will,
    As a’ the priests had seen me get thee
    That’s out o’ hell.
    Robert Burns (1759–1796)

    Let judges secretly despair of justice: their verdicts will be more acute. Let generals secretly despair of triumph; killing will be defamed. Let priests secretly despair of faith: their compassion will be true.
    Leonard Cohen (b. 1934)
