Famous quotes containing the words holy ghost, ghost and/or holy:

    Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
    So I make an idle boast;
    Jesus of the twice-turned cheek
    Lamb of God, although I speak
    With my mouth thus, in my heart
    Do I play a double part.
    Countee Cullen (1903–1946)

    Man was Cadaver’s masker, the harnessing mantle,
    Windily master of man was the rotten fathom,
    My ghost in his metal neptune
    Forged in man’s mineral.
    This was the god of beginning in the intricate seawhirl,
    And my images roared and rose on heaven’s hill.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

Her husband Joseph, being a righteous man and unwilling to expose her to public disgrace, planned to dismiss her quietly.
    Bible: New Testament, Matthew 1:18,19.
