Quotes About Sunday
“Without our Lord’s Day celebration we cannot live.”
~ Christians under Diocletian before a judge in Abitina, North Africa
“If you want to kill Christianity, you must abolish Sunday.”
“A church which waits for her Lord and anticipates the revelation of His lordship over all the kingdoms of this world, will never abandon the sign of Sunday with an appeal to Christian freedom. This day proclaims loudly to all the world, even the modern heathen world, that man through his own care and work can never build the kingdom of eternal glory.”
~ de Quervain
“O scaly, slippery, we, swift, staring wights,
What is’t ye do? What life lead?
Eh, dull goggles?
How do ye vary your vile days and nights?
How pass your Sundays?”
~ Leigh Hunt, addressing fish in an aquarium
“In the City, we need no bells:
Let them waken the suburbs.
I journeyed to the suburbs, and there I was told:
We toil for six days, on the seventh we must motor
To Hindhead, or Maidenhead.
If the weather is foul we stay at home and read the papers.”
~ T.S. Eliot
