A good name is better than precious ointment. Ecclesiastes 7:1
— Bible

Here is a pen and here is a pencil, here's a typewriter, here's a stencil, here's a list of today's appointments, and all the flies in all the ointments, the daily woes that a man endures -- take them, George, they're yours!
Ogden Nash ointments quote

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aarons beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments.
— Bible

The name of Jesus is as ointment poured forth; It nourishes, and illumines, and stills the anguish of the soul.
— Angelus Silesius

Whether elected or appointed he considers himself the Lord's anointed, and indeed the ointment lingers on him so thick you can't get your fingers on him.
— ointments quotation by Ogden Nash
