thomas a becket, st quotes- 10 of
Lord Thomas was buried in the church,
Fair Ellinor in the choir;
Judge Thomas was a man who had used the system to get where he wanted to be, but then felt that everyone else should pull themselv
Saintliness is also a temptation.
Westward the course of empire takes its way;
The four first acts already past,
His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding ev'ry hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste,
But sweet will be the flow'r.
He who plants a tree
Plants a hope.
The urge to kill, like the urge to beget,
Is blind and sinister. Its craving is set
Will no one rid me of this turbulent priest?
He with cowslips pale,
Primrose, and purple lychnis, decked the green
Until the day of his death, no man can be sure of his courage.
