Reverence
 
        Henceforth the Majesty of God revere;
Fear him and you have nothing else to fear.
Fordyce.    
  1
  If we wish ourselves to be high, we should treat that which is over us as high.
Trollope.    
  2
  To yield reverence to another, to hold ourselves and our lives at his disposal, is not slavery; often, it is the noblest state in which a man can live in this world.
Ruskin.    
  3
  What a sweet reverence is that when a young man deems his mistress a little more than mortal and almost chides himself for longing to bring her close to his heart.
Nath. Hawthorne.    
  4
        When once thy foot enters the church, be bare.
God is more there than thou: for thou art there
Only by His permission. Then beware,
And make thyself all reverence and fear.
Herbert.
