„How proud he would have felt […] to have seen those seeds germinate into a Muslim nation, a Land of the Pure. How it would have broken his heart to see that Land of the Pure become a medieval theocracy and then rip itself apart in tribal factionalism. The Word of God prophecies from the barrel of an AK47.“

„Meek — as the meek that shall inherit earth,
Pure — as the pure in heart that shall see God.“

—  Dinah Craik English novelist and poet 1826 - 1887
Poems (1866), Our Father's Business, Context: This, this is Thou. No idle painter's dream Of aureoled, imaginary Christ, Laden with attributes that make not God; But Jesus, son of Mary; lowly, wise, Obedient, subject unto parents, mild, Meek — as the meek that shall inherit earth, Pure — as the pure in heart that shall see God.

„When Cain was driven from Jehovah's land
He wandered eastward, seeking some far strand
Ruled by kind gods who asked no offerings
Save pure field-fruits“

—  George Eliot English novelist, journalist and translator 1819 - 1880
The Legend of Jubal (1869), Context: When Cain was driven from Jehovah's land He wandered eastward, seeking some far strand Ruled by kind gods who asked no offerings Save pure field-fruits, as aromatic things, To feed the subtler sense of frames divine That lived on fragrance for their food and [wine]]: Wild joyous gods, who winked at faults and folly, And could be pitiful and melancholy. He never had a doubt that such gods were; He looked within, and saw them mirrored there.

O'er his Italian love's last sleep.
Oh, tears are a most worthless token,
When hearts they would have soothed are broken.“
