Famous quotes containing the word grace:

    Humans need justice in the here and now and grace in the thereafter. Justice in the here and now is possible only without freedom, and grace in the thereafter only through the freedom of God.
    Friedrich Dürrenmatt (1921–1990)

    But our old subtle foe so tempteth me
    That not one hour I can myself sustain.
    Thy grace may wing me to prevent his art,
    And thou like adamant draw mine iron heart.
    John Donne (1572–1631)

    We raised a simple prayer
    Before we left the spot,
    That in the general mowing
    That place might be forgot;
    Or if not all so favored,
    Obtain such grace of hours
    That none should mow the grass there
    While so confused with flowers.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
