Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.
There are no galley-slaves in the royal vessel of divine love -- every man works his oar voluntarily!
— vessel quotation by St. Francis De Sales

The ship of state is the only known vessel that leaks from the top.

Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.
Our conscience is not the vessel of eternal verities.
It grows with our social life, and a new social condition means a radical change in conscience.

but he that endeavors after it by false merit, has to fear, not only the violence of the storm, but the leaks of his vessel.
Glamour, that trans-human aura or power to attract imitation, is a kind of vessel into which dreams are poured, and some vessels are simply worthier than others... A beautiful woman can turn heads but real glamour has a deeper pull... Glamour is the power to rearrange people's emotions, which, in effect, is the power to control one's environment.
Dear Friend,Please be patient with me;
I need to grieve in my own way and in my own time.Please don't take away my grief or try to fix my pain. The best thing you can do is listen to me and let me cry on your shoulder. Don't be afraid to cry with me. Your tears will tell me how much you care.Please forgive me if I seem insensitive to your problems. I feel depleted and drained, like an empty vessel, with nothing left to give.Please let me express my feelings and talk about my memories. Feel free to share your own stories of my loved one with me. I need to hear them.Please understand why I must turn a deaf ear to criticism or tired clich
The heart itself is only a small vessel, yet dragons are there, and lions,there are poisonous beasts, and all the treasures of evil,there are rough and uneven roads,there are precipes;but there too is God and the angels,life is there, and the Kingdom,there too is light, and there the apostlesand heavenly cities,and treasures of grace.All things lie within that little space.
You know a dream is like a river, ever changing as it flows.
And a dreamer's just a vessel that must follow where it goes.Trying to learn from what's behind you and never knowing what's in storemakes each day a constant battle just to stay between the shores.And I will sail my vessel 'til the river runs dry.Like a bird upon the wind, these waters are my sky.I'll never reach my destination if I never try,So I will sail my vessel 'til the river runs dry.Too many times we stand aside and let the water slip away.To what we put off 'til tomorrow has now become today.So don't you sit upon the shore and say you're satisfied.Choose to chance the rapids and dare to dance the tides.
The human voice: mysterious, spontaneous, primal.
For me, the human voice is the vessel on which all emotions travel.
You know, I think that allowing somebody, one mere person to believe that he or she is like, the vessel you know, like the font and the essence and the source of all divine, creative, unknowable, eternal mystery is just a smidge too much responsibility to put on one fragile, human psyche. It's like asking somebody to swallow the sun.

We have made many glass vessels... with tubes two cubits long. These were filled with mercury, the open end was closed with the finger, and the tubes were then inverted in a vessel where there was mercury.
Is it a surprise that into the vessel, in which the mercury has no inclination and no repugnance, not even the slightest, to being there, it should enter and should rise in a column high enough to make equilibrium with the weight of the external air which forces it up?
