The shepherd always tries to persuade the sheep that their interests and his own are the same.
— Henri B. Stendhal

Without tradition, art is a flock of sheep without a shepherd. Without innovation, it is a corpse.
Winston Churchill shepherds quote

The seaman tells stories of winds, the ploughman of bulls; the soldier details his wounds, the shepherd his sheep.
— Sextus Propertius

The Lord is my Shepherd and he knows I'm gay.
— Troy Perry

The supreme, the merciless, the destroyer of opposition, the exalted King, the shepherd, the protector of the quarters of the world, the King the word of whose mouth destroys mountains and seas, who by his lordly attack has forced mighty and merciless Kings from the rising of the sun to the setting of the same to acknowledge one supremacy.
