Famous quotes containing the words fathers and/or greek:
“And fathers are a blessing, too, they give the place a tone;
In fact each child should try and have some parents of its own.”
—Louis Untermeyer (18851977)
“The uppermost idea with Hellenism is to see things as they really are; the uppermost ideas with Hebraism is conduct and obedience. Nothing can do away with this ineffaceable difference. The Greek quarrel with the body and its desires is, that they hinder right thinking; the Hebrew quarrel with them is, that they hinder right acting.”
—Matthew Arnold (18221888)
