Famous quotes containing the words temples and/or cave:

    These temples grew as grows the grass;
    Art might obey, but not surpass.
    The passive Master lent his hand
    To the vast soul that o’er him planned.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    While yet a boy I sought for ghosts, and sped
    Through many a listening chamber, cave and ruin,
    And starlight wood, with fearful steps pursuing
    Hopes of high talk with the departed dead.
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)
