Author Quotes

A mighty power and stronger Man from his throne has hurled, for the hand that rocks the cradle Is the hand that rules the world.

They say that man is mighty, he governs land and sea, he wields a mighty sceptre, o'er lesser powers that be.

Who is this before whose presence idols tumble to the sod? While he cries out ? Allah Akbar! and there is no god but God!

A sound like a sound of thunder rolled, and the heart of a nation stirred.

Who is this before whose presence idols tumble to the sod? While he cries out "Allah Akbar! and there is no god but God!"

They say that man is mighty, He governs land and sea, He wields a mighty scepter O'er lesser powers that be; But a mightier power and stronger Man from his throne has hurled, For the hand that rocks the cradle Is the hand that rules the world

Every man dies - Not every man really lives.

Blessings on the hand of women! Angels guard its strength and grace, in the palace, cottage, hovel, oh, no matter where the place.

The Hand That Rocks The Cradle Is The Hand That Rules The World -

Blessings on the hand of women!
Angels guard its strength and grace,
In the palace, cottage, hovel,
Oh, no matter where the place;
Would that never storms assailed it,
Rainbows ever gently curled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.
Infancy's the tender fountain,
Power may with beauty flow,
Mother's first to guide the streamlets,
From them souls unresting grow--
Grow on for the good or evil,
Sunshine streamed or evil hurled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.
Woman, how divine your mission
Here upon our natal sod!
Keep, oh, keep the young heart open
Always to the breath of God!
All true trophies of the ages
Are from mother-love impearled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.
Blessings on the hand of women!
Fathers, sons, and daughters cry,
And the sacred song is mingled
With the worship in the sky--
Mingles where no tempest darkens,
Rainbows evermore are hurled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.

The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.
