Famous quotes containing the words centuries and/or awaking:
“What is history? Its beginning is that of the centuries of systematic work devoted to the solution of the enigma of death, so that death itself may eventually be overcome. That is why people write symphonies, and why they discover mathematical infinity and electromagnetic waves.”
—Boris Pasternak (18901960)
“That, he awaking when the other do,
May all to Athens back again repair,
And think no more of this nights accidents
But as the fierce vexation of a dream.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
