Who is bible: hebrew genesis?

Famous quotes containing the words genesis and/or hebrew:

    Power is, in nature, the essential measure of right. Nature suffers nothing to remain in her kingdoms which cannot help itself. The genesis and maturation of a planet, its poise and orbit, the bended tree recovering itself from the strong wind, the vital resources of every animal and vegetable, are demonstrations of the self-sufficing and therefore self-relying soul.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Feed him with bread of affliction and with water of affliction.
    —Bible: Hebrew (KJ)
