„If a man have not order within him
He can not spread order about him“

—  Ezra Pound, Context: If a man have not order within him He can not spread order about him; And if a man have not order within him His family will not act with due order; And if the prince have not order within him He can not put order in his dominions. Canto XIII

„Cimourdain was a pure-minded but gloomy man. He had "the absolute" within him.“

—  Victor Hugo French poet, novelist, and dramatist 1802 - 1885
Context: Cimourdain was a pure-minded but gloomy man. He had "the absolute" within him. He had been a priest, which is a solemn thing. Man may have, like the sky, a dark and impenetrable serenity; that something should have caused night to fall in his soul is all that is required. Priesthood had been the cause of night within Cimourdain. Once a priest, always a priest. Whatever causes night in our souls may leave stars. Cimourdain was full of virtues and truth, but they shine out of a dark background. Part 2, Book 1, Ch. 2 Variant translation: What makes night within us may leave stars.

„Yes, he can. He must. Not can: must! Because he has this commandment within him.“

—  Papa Francesco 266th Pope of the Catholic Church 1936
Context: The Lord created us in His image and likeness, and we are the image of the Lord, and He does good and all of us have this commandment at heart: do good and do not do evil. All of us. "But, Father, this is not Catholic! He cannot do good." Yes, he can. He must. Not can: must! Because he has this commandment within him. Instead, this "closing off" that imagines that those outside, everyone, cannot do good is a wall that leads to war and also to what some people throughout history have conceived of: killing in the name of God. That we can kill in the name of God. And that, simply, is blasphemy. To say that you can kill in the name of God is blasphemy.
